Workshops are suitable for 18 + beginners through to those with some singing experience. Having fun is the key to learning whilst we go through the foundations of vocal technique. Workshops encompass stretching and tension release, relaxation (including simple mindfulness techniques), vocal warm-ups and ways to release your natural voice. You will also learn how to sing harmony and basic improvisation skills as we explore a variety of song styles including pop, rock, gospel, folk, jazz and blues.
Building trust is a priority as we work together. By developing a safe and supportive environment, it is most likely that individuals will feel able to take risks with their voices and so, make the most of the range of vocal opportunities on offer.
It's all true! Read about the benefits of singing, including group singing, in this article published in The Conversation.
