Group Voice Instruction

Jan. 12 - Feb. 9

The goal of this workshop is for you to learn to sing better and to enjoy doing it. It is suitable both for beginners and for those who have sung for some time but would like to hone their technique. We use fun warm-ups to learn basic vocal techniques (singer's breathing, the use of “shout” muscles, how to open the throat to negotiate the "break"), and we sing simple folksongs to practice the techniques. Skills gained may include increased vocal range and volume, improved breath management, accurate intonation, and a happy heart. Each session provides attention to the individual voice as appropriate and desired. Prerequisite: ability to match pitch (If I sing a note, can you sing the same note? If you don't know if you can, come Saturday, Jan 12 at 1:15 and we'll figure it out.)
