Saturday Sing In!
As singers we are all troubadours – storytelling is an essential part of our craft! Following on from our series of highly successful day courses since 2015 we are busy planning our next intensive voice workshop day.
The day will take the form of ‘how to learn’ and prepare a piece, so we will be inviting singers to come along with a chosen piece of any style, essentially ‘unprepared’. Of course you will need to have a working knowledge of whatever your chosen piece is, but during the day you’ll learn how to integrate all the aspects involved in preparing a piece for performance.
Singers who come on more than one of our courses often ask ‘will we be doing similar things this time?’. The answer is unashamedly YES. We focus on the core elements that we believe are integral to developing as a performer; these come from our own experience of many years as performers and teachers and are the key elements

that we believe to be the best way to allow you to fully realise your expressive capabilities.
In a singer’s life repetition is the key to refining, exploring and deepening our understanding of a piece or role; knowing the notes is just the beginning of the journey. Those of you who return to one of our workshops will therefore be repeating elements, but you will be working at a more advanced level each time, so that you’re approaching them with a new understanding and at a more advanced level each time. Communication is the key.
The details of our next course are still being prepared, but are likely to be as follows:
Course venue: The National Opera Studio, Wandsworth, London, SW18 4HZ
Tutors: Theresa Goble and Beverly Worboys plus one accompanist/coach.
Student investment: £TBC
