Find Your Voice

This short course is suitable for anyone new to harmony singing and for folks who are feeling a little timorous about their voice. In a small group we will work on a progressive series of vocal exercises and techniques as well as simple songs and chants to help you develop your ability to sing out, sing in tune and sing with confidence.

‘Find Your Own Voice’ is designed to help you:

Build the confidence to find your sound, and let your voice out

Learn tools, tips and good habits to use when singing

Work on breathing, posture, support and resonance

Build skills and confidence to help you hold your part when singing in harmony

Start training your own musicianship by developing ‘inner hearing’

Identify and work on increasing your range.

Learn simple rounds and songs to put what we’ve been learning into practice and experience the thrill of harmony singing

‘Find Your Own Voice’ will be facilitated by Pip Wright, a local choir leader and music teacher and with a passion for singing to enhance wellbeing and connection. Pip is a Natural Voice Practitioner who enjoys helping people find and develop their own voices through harmony singing.

To make it work for all participants, this course requires booking in advance and a commitment to attending all 4 sessions. The number of singers will be limited to a maximum of 12 so that we are able to hear and support each other and so that Pip can help with any specific issues or questions which emerge. Pip will suggest exercises and techniques you can practise to help you progress during the course and when you are singing in the future.
