What an amazing day we had on Saturday… we had a full course of 12 people who came along… and it was well received.
With Rachel Belringer leading the song we enjoyed some simple songs, in rounds and four part harmony, whilst I helped bring attention to any habits that were getting in the way of singing with a free and natural voice. Rachel and I thoroughly enjoyed it and learned a lot from the feedback and from working together on this joint approach. Now we’re hoping to do a 4-week course starting this coming Saturday (6th May), 9.30-12.30pm ( NB not 3.30pm as stated on poster) in the Church Cottage, Denbury. Suitable for absolute beginners in both singing and Alexander Technique, and those with more experience in either or both, we’ll be exploring things in a bit more depth. Lots of guidance on achieving an improved stress free posture, and as much singing as Rachel can cram in… Only 5 places left so book early to ensure your space.
