A Crash Course in Singing is a one day workshop designed for beginners through to intermediates or for anyone wanting a taste of my teaching methods before investing in a private session.
If you’re a beginner this is a wonderful way to become acquainted with your voice. You won’t be asked to sing on your own and while you will learn more than you can imagine about how the voice works, the focus is on fun and the day is designed to be a relaxing, social experience.
If you’re more advanced you will learn different ways of putting character into your voice and how to safely extend your range.
If you’re already a voice user but are losing your voice or struggling through breaks this workshop could also help...especially if you’ve never been taught the importance of a relaxed larynx and good chord closure.
Although it isn’t covered in as much detail as the dedicated Performance Workshop I also introduce you to powerful ideas when it comes to interpreting a song and performing it in such a way that is authentic to you. Whereas singing technique usually has to be taught, becoming the performer you want to be is usually about letting go of fears. In other words, you’re already the performer you want to be and my job as a coach is to help you get out of your own way.
This workshop will not turn you into the singer of your dreams overnight. Like any skill it takes dedication to master...but, like any other skill you can see huge improvements FAST if you’re willing to put the time and passion in. Best of all, the exercises are recorded so you can carry on practising at home.
Looking forward to seeing you there. X
Does it matter if I can’t sing?
Not at all. You’ll learn tons and have a great day whatever your ability level. You’ll probably get the most out of the sections of pitch and tone.
I’m already a singer. Is it worth my time?
If you’re thinking of investing in a private session then definitely as I go through everything we’ll cover in the first few lessons and, given that my hourly rate is £55 you’ll save hundreds. If not, give me a call or send me an email and we’ll establish where you’re at and if you’ll learn something new.
Will I get one to one attention?
No. Nobody will be asked to sing on their own. The workshop is designed so that the everyone can relate to what is being taught.
Can I bring my kids? They are under 16.
If you’d like to bring someone between 10 and 15 then you are totally responsible for them. The technique exercises can get, well, technical and in the psychology section I talk about some deep, heavy stuff to do with self worth, fear of rejection and imposter syndrome. If you feel as though your child is mature enough to deal with that then they are very welcome.
Is there disabled access?
Contact me before booking to make sure we can accommodate you. Carers may attend at no extrta cost if youo're registered as disabled.
If I haven’t covered your question here then, as always, please give me a calll or send me an email. Hugs x
