Day Workshops

The Day Workshops take place three or four times a year, usually on a Monday from 10am to 4pm, and are an opportunity to concentrate on a particular topic or group of singing techniques over an extended period of time.    

Recent courses have worked on techniques and exercises to help reduce tension when singing and ease vocal production, using imagination to help improve vocal performance from the more mature voice. Classes are for any ability, have a maximum of 15 students, and are presented in a friendly and informal way. The aim is to explain clearly how the singers can improve their vocal ability through the topic of the day using exercises and techniques they will continue to practise at home.


There is generally the opportunity to sing a solo during the day – not everyone feels that this is something they would like to do but often join in despite their misgivings!For those singers working on a particular piece they would like to improve there are Performance Workshops. These have a maximum of 10 singers who will perform their pre-prepared song 2 or 3 times during the day and receive feedback, the performances are recorded on CD for each student for personal use. Places must be booked with Joyce in advance.
