Circle-singing Workshop in Leichhardt with Gemma Turner

Dates: 
Sun, 23/08/2015 - 1:30pm - 3:50pm

Circle-singing Workshop
with Singer and Voice coach Gemma Turner
1.30-3 Sunday August 23rd
Leichhardt - Venue TBA

A combination of vocal warmup, singing workout and creative session. It’s time to give the inner critic a rest and stop worrying about the past, the future and whether you “got it right”. Just have fun singing! The research is in and it shows that singing, especially in a group, is great for your physical and mental health. This workshop will involve simple call-and-response and then moving on to improvising riffs with ongoing gentle guidance from Gemma. You can just lose yourself in the group sound, treat it as a sound meditation or push the creative boundaries – that’s up to you!

Circle-singing is a great way of improving your voice by stealth. It stops you thinking too hard about your singing and helps release your sound. Some people have problems with singing because they overthink it – and usually have been doing it for decades! Strangely, the more you stop trying to push and micro-manage your voice and just get on with making music, the faster you get to your vocal goals. Improvising in a group where you don’t think too much about yourself is a great way to do this.

No experience required. All levels welcome. The only requirements are an open mind, a willingness to listen, sing and leave all pre-conceptions at the door!

COST: $30
Early Bird Rate (paid by Aug 15) $25
