A course for people who think they can't sing, beginner or shy singers and anyone who wants to learn to sing better - with Nikki Berry & Gary Easterbrook. This course is for all those people who think they can't sing or have been labelled 'tone deaf', from those who 'mime' in the back row, to those who belt it out while their friends and family cringe. It is also useful for anyone who would like to improve their singing, extend their range, develop a wider range of tone choices and/or sing more accurately.
Nikki has been pioneering this work for many years and seeks to explode the myth of the 'non-singer'. Singing is a skill that develops naturally in children. Most people who have trouble singing in tune have had this process interrupted in some way. By learning a range of techniques, and through the creation of a supportive, non-threatening environment, we will work to gently reshape the image we have of ourselves as 'non-singers' and claim the right to enjoy using our voices.
A strong part of Nikki and Gary's work is to build a sense of community in the group, where members are supported to shine their brightest, and get through what ever may get in the way.
Topics covered include:
- Learning to sing in tune
- Overcoming anxiety
- Singing technique - breath control, tone variety, range extension
