To help those of you struggling to get motivated with your singing practice I have put five sets of daily exercises on my YouTube channel – five 2-minute exercise videos for each day, for 5 days, covering breathing, diction, scales etc. They are intended as a gentle kickstart to your practising, a nudge to get you back to work again! When lockdown is over we need to make sure our voices are working well – use it, don’t lose it!
Mon June 8th 10am – 12 noon Part 1
Mon June 15th 10am – 12 noon Part 2
We will all come out of lockdown with new skills. Maybe now’s the time to think about improving your knowledge and awareness of the music you are working on. Understanding what’s on the page makes life a lot easier.
Why not join me on Zoom for my two-part course on RHYTHM AND COUNTING. Being aware of note-lengths and timing makes managing phrases so much easier, and enables you to use your breathing technique more effectively.
Courses cost £20 per session or you can book them both for £35.
For booking, more details, or any queries please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Hasn’t life changed! For those of you who normally sing regularly in lessons, choirs, classes etc and are now unable to, remember to keep exercising your voice daily, and keep up the breathing exercises too. If you need a bit of a nudge visit my YouTube channel – and you can sing, and breathe, with me.

I’m really enjoying leading vocal coaching sessions for choirs and working with my pupils on Zoom.
Just having to click on an invitation link makes it easy to access, and we are all finding just how effective it can be as a learning tool.
If you fancy a go get in touch – firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m offering a FREE 30 minute trial lesson until the end of May.
A group of people in Worcester decided to raise funds for Acorns Hospice in Worcester by creating a photo diary of Paddington Bear together with local and national celebrities.
Paddington Bear turned up at our concert in Worcester cathedral and has his photo taken with Conductor Samuel Hudson; Soprano Susanna Fairbairn; Bass James Cleverton, Tenor Nick Pritchard and myself.
The photo album will be auctioned sometime in 2020. You can see more on facebook here @fromdeepestdarkestworcester
Whilst we all have to stay at home at the moment I am offering one-to-one teaching via Zoom. Please contact me for more details at email@example.com
Keep safe, keep well, and keep practising!
Rhythm and Counting workshop on Monday March 23rd
*** THIS EVENT IS NOW POSTPONED DUE TO CORONA VIRUS RESTRICTIONS ***
Private singing lessons are continuing as usual. If you feel unwell please contact Joyce to cancel/postpone. When attending for your lesson please wait to be let in (no earlier than 5 mins before your lesson is due to start) so you don’t have to touch door-handles etc. You may prefer to bring your own bottle of water and pencil.
The Choir are looking forward to a Voice Training session with Joyce Tindsley this coming Monday, March 16th.
It is a rare opportunity to focus on improving our singing. many of us have been singing for many years, some not so long, but there is little doubt that Joyce will teach most of us something new (or perhaps remind us of something we have forgotten!), which will help us to sing better as a group.
This event has been cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions
A quick reminder that my next workshop is coming up on 23rd March and there are a few places left.
We will be working on Rhythm and Counting and, as usual, there will also be the opportunity for you to sing a pre-prepared solo if you wish.
All exercise sheets etc, plus lunch and tea and coffee throughout the day are provided.
The ability to read music is not essential. The class is open to all abilities and will be informal and friendly.
