Sunday 29th September, 1-5pm, at the ETNA Community Centre, St Margarets, TW1 3AR
This practical workshop looks to address many questions singers and performers ask about their voice. What is good singing? What is my voice capable of? Am I singing to my full potential? Why can’t my voice do that? How do I get my voice to sound like that? This workshop is suitable for both novice and experienced singers who are interested in learning more about their voice and its application. It doesn’t matter if you’re a pure classical singer, trained musical theatre performer or a Jazz scatter the workshop is accessible for all.
The four hour workshop aims to cover and explore the following points.
• How to create and maintain clear tone
• Accessing high notes without constriction
• Efficient singing
• Effective Vocal Warm ups
• Vocal Health
• Achieving more or less volume
• Accessing different vocal qualities
• Exploring Singing Myths
The workshop will be split into 2 halves. The first half will start with a general overview of how the voice works, followed by a vocal warm up. The main bulk of the session will then be singing as a group, exploring extracts of songs that feature common problems for most singers and how they can be resolved or adapted. Participants will have the opportunity to try out different voice qualities and gain a deeper understanding of how their voices work and their application.
The last 2 hours of the workshop will be an open session, six 20 minute slots are available for individuals to bring a section of a song that they are struggling with or have a problem they would like to solve. There is no obligation to sing in the open session but spectating is a key part of the workshop. If you are interested in booking one of the slots please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please bring a copy of the sheet music with you for me to accompany you.
