Singing for Larks Singing Together Freestyle day
These ‘freestyle’ workshops are all about enjoying the freedom and spontaneity of creating amazing group sounds on the spot. Instead of learning songs which have already been arranged in harmony, you’ll be guided through a variety of simple tips and techniques to help you make up your own notes and rhythms as you go along. The emphasis is always on creating a group sound, so everyone will be working together; you won’t have to sing on your own and you don’t have to have lots of ideas! These workshops make improvisation un-scary and accessible to everyone – you don’t have to be born with a particular talent. Expect to be moved, surprised and delighted… and to have a lot of fun!
We shall sing in the hall at the Sanctuary Workshops in Aylestone, Leicester. Built in 1896 as a Baptist Church, this venue has been renovated and updated over the years and is now a great space for members of the community and groups of all ages to enjoy. There is only one public space so we shall have exclusive use of the building. It is accessible to disabled people. The venue is less than 10 minutes’ drive from the M1 and M69. 3 miles from Leicester train station and 5 minutes’ walk from local bus stops.
