An intensive day training for singing-group-leader wannabees, newbees and ‘old-handers’ alike, exploring the often avoided territory of warm-ups!
Led by Delia Rosenboom NVN, ATI, experienced singing workshop leader & Alexander Technique teacher.
Whether new to running singing groups, looking for guidance and support, or an ‘old-hander’ looking for new warm-up ideas and inspiration, this is the workshop for you! A practical day packed full of information and experiential exercises around preparing the voice, breath, mind and body for singing. This workshop is usually taught as part of a longer workshop which has been adapted into a series of zoom workshops… Please consider complimenting this day by also attending: the online ‘Essential Tips & Tools for Singing Group Leaders’ workshop on 9th June, the ‘Exploring Breath Workshop’ on 23rd June, or the ‘Finding Vocal Freedom & Ease’ workshop on 7th July.
Material will include exploring warm-ups:
- To organise the ‘furniture’ of the jaw, soft palate and throat…
- To create an atmosphere, or ‘back-drop’ for the rest of the workshop
- To loosen the body…
- To help the group feel confident and at ease…
- To increase resonance or enhance pitching…
- To prepare for differing song styles (Gospel/ African/ Taize…)
- To help to pre-learn potentially tricky elements of songs…..
This material has grown out of 25 years’ experience of running choirs and singing groups and is underpinned by decades of both teaching the Alexander Technique and working with Ta Ke Ti Na – a body-centred rhythm method. Material will be taught through discussion, practical demonstrations, experiential work, application of material to songs bought by participants; observation and feedback…
Cost: £105, however, to accommodate anyone who may be financially challenged, I offer a sliding payment scale from £40-105. Therefore, if you need a reduced rate, please consider honestly what you can afford on this scale and make a payment by BACS transfer.
