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 will work with a range of breathing and vocal exercises with an emphasis on singing together as a group, with a specific focus on songs from various African traditions. 

At the end of the workshop you will receive a detailed handout with all the exercises and ideas covered during the day. All the songs will be taught orally, therefore there is no need to be able to read music.
