One-off workshops or longer courses and voice tuition offered. Penny has been working for 25 years as a voice coach and has experience of all age groups, from pre-school to adult. She believes everyone can sing, and sing well, given support with vocal technique to keep the voice healthy, and appropriate repertoire. Workshops are relaxed and informal, and she uses a wide variety of material, borrowing many songs from around the world.
At her day course Giving Voice (for a maximum of 12 people), participants learn about the way the voice works and are guided through specialist techniques to improve their singing, and are given individualised attention if they would like it – contact Penny to find out when the next course runs. She also delivers workshops on vocal improvisation, some of which explore the relationship between movement and voice.
Current, ongoing projects include Bridport Voices, a lively community choir of around 50 adults. Penny specialises in working with under-confident singers. No previous experience is needed; bathtub singers warmly welcomed!
