They Shall Laugh & Sing Alchemy
“Jeff brims over with infectious enthusiasm for joyful choral singing and his dedication to helping other singers is unsurpassed and an inspiration. It is simply delightful to have the benefit of his clearly extensive experience, knowledge and empathy as a singer, and vocal coach.”- Colleen
It is our aim, at They Shall Laugh and Sing, to help as many people as possible to find the way to singing freely and expressively; with joy and confidence.
The vast majority of singers, especially in choirs, sing with a combination of fears such as “Am I In tune?” “Am I too loud?” “Is my voice ugly?” “Am I singing the correct notes?” “Will I make the high/low notes?” “If I had needed to audition, would I have got in?” “Are people just too polite to tell me I’m rubbish?” “Did I pass the audition by mistake or, perhaps, because they felt sorry for me?”
In They Shall Laugh & Sing Alchemy, we will do exactly what the title implies. By using our unique approach to singing, we use your raw materials and find the vocal and emotional gold within you. We will enable you to put aside the fears that hold you back, and allow you to become the singer, and the emotionally expressive person that you have always longed to be. We believe that, if people can be given confidence in their singing, and be taught to sing more beautifully and expressively, then they will become more joyful. As a result of this, more people will want to hear and take part in choirs. And more than this. If we can make more people joyful and more compassionate in their singing and in their ability to listen to singing, then we might help the wider world to become a more compassionate and joyful place.
In order to be help more people to reach their potential, and to enable them to use their singing to make their lives richer and more fulfilled, we are offering membership of our Alchemy group.

Most singers say they would like to take singing lessons, but many feel they can’t afford the cost, or perhaps the time to take them. Our online group lesson at gives you expert advice from Jeff Stewart a vocal professor of the Royal College of Music and Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, who has sung and given masterclasses all over the world. You will be taken through exercises and advised on their purpose and how to get the best out of them. You will be guided through the learning of a song, with advice on how to interpret it and how to overcome the pitfalls, and all done within a light-hearted and non-judgemental atmosphere.
These lessons alone would normally cost you £30.00- £37.50 per month
In addition, as a member of the Alchemy group, you will get the following great features too:
We will also be giving you a weekly vocal workout video, giving you a set of exercises to use for 10-15 minutes, four or five days each week. Thats a daily, guided and structured practice session, taking less time than your average coffee break. We guarantee that, by using this resource, you will notice an improvement in the range, quality and ease of your voice.
There will be a regular chat room to help you with your individual vocal issues. If it’s technical we can help. If it’s an issue with a phrase or passage in a piece, you can send it in advance and we can look at it in the group. This resource will be hugely valuable. Just imagine, having a singing teacher there to help you solve your problems without having to disrupt a rehearsal. Just imagine how much you will learn by watching the advice given to others.
Finally, there is the discount on all They Shall Laugh & Sing events. This includes residential events, one day events and Cantemus Cum Spiritu events.
