Ever been told you can’t sing or shouldn’t sing? Yet you love to sing!
This short workshop is for you.

This is an opportunity to just get out there and sing! The 1st half of the workshop will be getting ourselves ready to sing a song in the 2nd half.

This is a workshop for those who have

  • No pressure to sing or do anything they do not want to do
  • Very holistic approach to finding the voice mixed with traditional experience
  • Plan is to leave the workshop wanting to get out and sing more and have fun!
