We are born singers. The workshop will be all about getting the most out of singing in a group and is fun and educational; By the end of the course you will have learned about your voice and how to use it with freedom.
Every class will have a similar format:
No musical experience necessary; Absolute beginners welcome.
I studied Theatre and developed an interest in voice from that.
I completed a year-long pilot Community Music course here in Galway run by Galway City Partnership, and then completed 2 years with AMP also here in Galway. I am interested in how we express ourselves through the voice and studied with the Roy Hart Theatre (which is concerned primarily with voice work and development) both here in Ireland and in their base in France. Also I have taken part in many singing workshops that are focused on group sound and harmony, including Jazz summer schools in Cork, and Sligo, with Sian Croose, (a visiting choral teacher to Ireland ) twice a year since 2009.
In 2013 I completed a teacher training course on the Natural Voice method of teaching singing and have been running singing workshops consistently since then. I have run workshops for many groups including parents and home schooled children, children with Down’s Syndrome and their parents, older members of the community with dementia and their carers. I have also run workshops to show the benefit of singing for mental health and organised and conducted the Dawn Chorus as part of Bealtaine, the Arts festival for older people. And finally workshops for all-comers through night classes with the GTI and the Galway Arts Centre.
