All weekdays and evenings and some weekends
INTRODUCTORY SINGING GROUP
These groups run for eight weeks. They cover a process of getting to know your voice. The singers study anchoring, breath support, vocal placement, expression, pitch, range all while doing a lot of fun singing!
SONG MANDALA CHOIR
Song Mandala is for Everyone! Existing students come along to have a monthly sing, past students come to keep in touch, singers who have lost their confidence find it helpful to engage with others. Vocal technique is studied at each session along with a couple of songs. The sessions are videoed and singers receive a copy of highlights.
These groups work together while all singers actually focus on their individual development. The singers learn to harmonise while studying group songs. It’s great if each singer can choose a song to sing a solo with the rest of the group providing back-up. Equal billing is prioritised. No singer is expected to sing solo if they don’t feel ready but it is strongly encouraged.
