In today’s society singing is regarded as something that should only be done by those who “know how” - thanks to this others, generally seen as the majority, often only become bold enough to sing, at most, in the bathroom, alone in the car or with their children. Working with the voice is a natural, relaxing, joyful and enriching experience.
The workshop creates a space for relaxing and experiencing the music that arises from simple exercises and tasks that anyone can manage.
With a gradual shift from silence to breathing then listening to one’s voice, using games and exercises, the participants, often to their own surprise, come to see singing as a natural continuation of working together. In the second part of the workshop the participants sing polyphonic compositions, some easy some more difficult depending of the group’s make up.
The experience with singing and sharing music that is made together is very strong and beautiful.
An audio report from the workshop can be heard HERE.
If you would like to hold a voice workshop in your town, give us a call.
The workshop can be designed for complete beginners, for intermediates or even for a mixed group. It is also possible to organise a workshop aimed at working with a Loopstation or the Zpěvomat (Singing Juke Box) or it can be simply made up depending on the needs and the situation.
