Anyone Can Sing!

All sessions begin with physical warm up. This is followed by breathing exercises and a vocal warm up. This may lead on to rhythm exercises using hands, feet and voice. All exercises are taught with the aim of creating connection between the body and the voice.

The warm up is followed by the teaching of simple rounds or part songs by ear to begin to get the group tuned in.

As a session progresses we work on a variety of music. Word sheets, written music are used if appropriate. Ideas for simple improvisation may also be introduced.

All teaching takes place in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere of acceptance. People are encouraged to listen to each other as well as to sing. The aim is for people to feel safe enough to take risks at their own pace.
