Would you like to discover what your voice can really do? ‘Find Your Voice’ is a practical vocal and singing workshop takes place in a friendly, fun and supportive environment where you can explore just how amazing your voice is.  The day is great for anyone who would like to to have fun with their singing, and also extremely useful for anyone whose voice is an important part of their work such as teachers, lecturers, professional speakers and even parents!

During the workshop we shall work with a wide range of breathing and vocal exercises, and a variety of easy-to-learn songs from a variety of vocal traditions. These exercises demonstrate how to use your natural voice efficiently and effectively, whilst the communal singing provides a unique space for social interaction. As well as experiencing and learning more about the voice, other benefits commonly mentioned by people doing this workshop include developing more confidence - in their voices, in being in front of people, and in themselves generally. 

At the end of the workshop you will be given a detailed handout with all the exercises and ideas that you will have covered as well as audio recordings of all the songs. All songs shall be taught orally, so you don’t need to be able to read music!
