Further information:

If you are interested in leading singing groups and choirs, or seeking to build your confidence in this area, this series of workshops will cover all the basics and much more.

The training will give you skills for a wide variety of community settings and several previous participants have gone on to make this their profession. It is a hands-on, practical course, though with philosophy, theory and lively discussion where appropriate. There are no entry requirements and you don’t need to be able to read music, though it is helpful.

Candy will be drawing on over 30 years’ experience of teaching in a wide range of settings: directing a set of five ‘Singing in the Round’ community choirs, work in schools, Early Years, Steiner education, nursing homes and work in the corporate world.

The course has been purposefully designed with 2-3 weeks between each teaching day,  to allow time for practice and assimilation of the information.

The course includes:

  • Philosophy & principles
  • Warm Ups
  • How to teach a song
  • How to teach a song in parts
  • How to develop a song
  • Ways to improve the quality of singing
  • Building dynamics of a group
  • Improvisation
  • How to support individuals

Cost: £550

Dates: October 21st, November 11th, December 2nd, January 6th.
