Sing/Song: Finding Your Voice in Singing & Songwriting

from 50.00

In this three-day, six hour workshop, you will focus on the commonalities shared between improvisational singing and the craft of songwriting.

Jude Roberts will delve into free-writing exercises and then explore the process of turning an idea into a structured song through development, editing and repetition.

With Julie, you will explore the freedom of breathing deeply, moving and singing with your entire body, discovering the spontaneous creations that come from within.

Singers and songwriters at all levels of experience are invited to join us as we learn techniques to find our voice and evolve it into song.
