‘Acting Through Song’ Workshop 

Workshop Dates: 

  • Tuesday 6th August 2024 - Booking opening very soon!
  • Start time 11:00am 
Workshop duration: 2 hours 
Workshop objectives*:

The workshops will include a vocal warmup, including technique building exercises for classical, musical theatre and pop, based on those relevant to the students attending the course.

The class will then work through character exercises, analysing the content of songs and exploring how students can build a character in their physicality and movement.

The session will involve some individual work to enable the students to have the opportunity to watch and learn from one another. Students will sing through a song, talk about the intentions and emotions of the song, and work on how the way they sing can reflect that as well.

All students will get the chance for individual feedback and practice.

Workshop Cost: £60.00 per student

‘Performing with Musical Instruments’ Workshop

Workshop Dates:

  • Tuesday 6th August 2024 - Booking opening very soon!
  • Start time 2:00pm 

Workshop duration: 90 minutes

Ages 10 & upwards

Workshop objectives*:

This workshop focuses on how instrumentalists can work on their stage presence through music.

Students are invited to bring along to the workshop a piece of music they can learn off by heart (any level - it doesn’t have to be too challenging).

Following an instrumental warm up there will be a mix of group activity standing and moving with the instrument, and working on expression with dynamics and articulation to see how that can impact the performance. We'd work through how even scales can be performed with confidence and emotion, and perform some exercises on different ways to bring emotion into their performance.

The students will get the chance to individually play their piece and receive feedback. 

Workshop Cost: £45.00 per student

Limited spaces available
