SINGING WITH YOUR HEART, SOUL, AND BODY
Inside each of us lives a beautiful and unique instrument, so let's sing together with joy and freedom! In this workshop we will move our bodies, soften our hearts, open our mouths and let our voices out to play. With an emphasis on vocal health and self-care, we’ll use a combination of vocal warm-ups and work-outs - traditional and non-traditional - to help relax, release and strengthen the voice, making it more flexible and reliable. Individual attention is offered as well as to the group as a whole, and each student will be supported in developing their own personal vocal practice. This class is for singers AND non-singers alike.

SWIMMING IN THE RIVER OF YOUR SONG
This is our time to create songs from a place of freedom, flow and fun. Each day we'll show up and allow ourselves to dip into the waters of creativity - we will listen, we will write, we will mine ideas and marry together music and words. Using games and prompts - we will practice being in and writing in "non-edit" mode and see where each of us are led. Through examples and discussion we will play with our ideas and open ourselves to inspiration. You'll leave the class with a whole new outlook on your songwriting process, with new skills to help you grow as an artist, and a new song to sing. Jump on in...the water is fine.
