"Sing A Song"

When: Wednesday 31st July 2019 7.00 - 9.00pm

Where: The Unitarian Church, Berkeley Street, Glasgow, G3 7DS

Cat performing to audience of miceDo you think about what you are singing and what you are trying to communicate when singing a song to people? Are you telling them a story? Imparting an emotion? Calling them to action?

In this workshop we will be looking at how to get your audience hooked at the start of a song and how to keep them engaged.

We want you to feel confident in your voice, and your ability to sing and perform, whether you are singing on stage, in an informal setting or to the cat!

This Workshop is designed to help you whether:

  • You've never really sung before
  • You've sung a bit but would like to feel more confident in your voice
  • You've sung before and would like to get your voice moving again

Focus On Breathing Workshop

Singing cat running out of breath, with blue faceDo you find yourself running out of breath when you sing? Not sure how to support your voice? Find yourself hurting your throat when singing high, or low, notes? Then this Workshop is for you. Our Focus on Breathing Workshop will help you to use your breath more effectively and improve your singing voice.

Learning good breathing technique is essential in relation to managing conditions such as anxiety and panic attacks. It is beneficial for your general well-being and helps you to relax and remove stress from your body.

Vocal Range and Registers Workshop

"River Deep, Mountain High"

When: Wednesday 6th February 2019, 7.00 - 9.00pm

Where: The Unitarian Church, Berkeley Street, Glasgow G3 7DS.

Are you limiting the kinds of songs you sing because they seem too high or too low? Do you worry about producing squeaks and growls? Do you find some notes in the middle of your voice weaker than others? Then this is the workshop for you.

In this workshop we will be focussing on the whole range of the voice, from low to high, and on the different areas (called registers) that cover this.

We want you to feel confident in your voice throughout your vocal range. This workshop will help you to work on developing all of your voice, so you can get more enjoyment from singing, whether you are singing on stage, in an informal setting or to the cat!

Listening In Performance Workshop

“Listen To The Music”

When: Saturday 23rd February 2019, 10.30am - 12.30pm

Where: The Unitarian Church, Berkeley Street, Glasgow G3 7DS.

Do you concentrate so hard on not making mistakes that you forget to perform? Do you struggle to express your personality on stage? Do you feel there are too many things to think about during a performance? Then this is the workshop for you.

In this workshop we will be focussing on dealing with the things that can overwhelm you during a performance and prevent you from enjoying the experience.

We want you to feel confident in your voice, and your ability to sing and perform, whether you are singing on stage, in an informal setting or to the cat!

 


Singing with Emotion Workshop

“I Second That Emotion”

When: Wednesday 5th December 2018, 7.00 - 9.00pm

Where: The Unitarian Church, Berkeley Street, Glasgow G3 7DS.

When you sing, do you find yourself getting so caught up in thinking about when to breathe, what the tune is and how to fit the words in, that you forget all about the feelings being conveyed in the song? Are you unsure of how to communicate the emotions to your audience without coming across as being over-dramatic? Then this is the workshop for you.

In this workshop we will be focussing on using emotion appropriately to convey the story of a song. There is more to singing than just delivering the right notes in the right places. Songs have a story to tell and being able to communicate these stories with the emotions they evoke, is part of the whole fun of singing! This workshop will help you to bring colour and depth to songs and share their story with your audience whether you are singing on stage, in an informal setting or to the cat!


Singing In Your Upper Register Workshop

“Hi-Fidelity”

When: Saturday 10th November 2018, 10.30am - 12.30pm

Where: The Unitarian Church, Berkeley Street, Glasgow G3 7DS.

Do you struggle to reach high notes? Does your voice sound thin and reedy or breathy in your higher register? Does your throat hurt from straining to sing high notes? Then this Singing Workshop is for you

People are often afraid of using the upper register of their voice and find themselves becoming tense, which makes it more difficult to reach notes and produce a pleasing sound.

Our Workshop will focus on helping you to become more comfortable in your higher register and on learning to produce sound without strain. You need never be scared of those high notes again!

Singing Workshop - Focus on Dynamics

“Pump Up The Volume”

When: Saturday 7th July 2018

Where: The Unitarian Church, Berkeley Street, Glasgow G3 7DS.

Do you have difficulty staying in tune when singing loudly or softly? Does singing louder feel forced and uncomfortable? Then we have just the Workshop for you!

Telling the story of a song involves more than just singing the right notes and words. Variations in volume will help you to convey more of the meaning within a song and to engage your audience, whether you are singing on stage, in an informal setting or to the cat!

Storytelling & Singing Workshop

“Tell Me A Story”

In this workshop we will be focussing on storytelling and singing. There is more to singing than just delivering the right notes in the right places. Songs have a story to tell and being able to communicate these stories effectively is part of the whole fun of singing! This workshop will help you to bring songs to life and share their story with your audience whether you are singing on stage, in an informal setting or to the cat!

Singing Workshop – Performing Confidently And Engaging With An Audience

“Let Me Entertain You”

Do you feel self-conscious when you are performing? Are you unsure where to look or where to put your hands? Do you find it difficult to let go and feel the music? Then we have just the Workshop for you! Our Workshop focussing on Performing Confidently and Engaging With An Audience will help you to feel more at ease singing in front of others.

Singing Workshop – Breath Support And Singing Clearly

“Talking Loud and Clear”

Do you panic about running out of breath when singing? Are you often told to “sing up”? Do you find yourself tripping over words? Then we have just the Workshop for you!
