Need I say, I'm sure you have friends and/or family who also like singing and who you could persuade to come along as well.
I'm not sure if I have the right kind of voice ?
Yes there are different styles of singing and of course different vocal range. All voices are welcome, and you will be placed within the vocal range where you will feel the most comfortable, so that I can help you get the most out of the classes and as a result improve your confidence and help you to progress.
