I have decided when I return from the USA to start a Community choir – and you can find out more information on my choir page – it will have it’s own website soon! The choir will run Wednesday nights from 7pm to 9pm. This is something which has been swirling in my heart for quite a while now, so I decided to listen to the still small voice and go ahead and do it. I have had many students over the years who come to singing lessons, but who really are looking for a place to sing without feeling intimidated or needing to go through the audition process. They want to learn about the voice, improve their singing and just have fun. One to one singing lessons are not for everyone, but singing together in a group is definitely for everyone! There have been so many articles written about the health and wellbeing benefits of singing, and particularly of singing in a group, and every time I read a new article on the subject, a part of me has been saying “you know you LOVE conducting”. I do. I love working with all singers of all abilities.
This choir will not be auditioned – it is open to all. Once a week we will get together somewhere in the northern suburbs of Brisbane (to be confirmed – looking at venues now!). I will teach you how to warm up your body mind and voice to sing, teach you one or two interesting and practical tips about the voice based on voice function principles, and then we will sing. We will learn a couple of parts and have a good time. Then, at the end of each two hour session I’ll teach you how to cool down your voice (just like after gym training) and we will see each other next week. Singing has so many health benefits, and choirs are a place of joy and belonging. So if you love singing, have sung in the past and miss the joy of singing, get out of the shower (we all sound fabulous in the shower, right?), walk away from Netflix and come sing with us! You don’t need to commit to every week – I understand that school meetings, family visits and work sometimes interfere with giving long term commitments, but we do hope you will try to come every week and enjoy the community and joy of singing together.
