‘Leading Groups in Song’ Training day in Limerick – Sunday 17th April

I am delighted to have been invited to bring my training day up to Limerick this coming April. This one day training is designed as an introduction and is useful for anyone who would like to gain some basic skills when using singing in groups of any age or ability. It is not just for the keen singer or new Community Choir facilitator, but also for school teachers, youth workers, carers and anyone who may like to bring singing into a group context. No ability to read music is required as this teaching works through a ‘call and response’ approach to learning. However, you must be a strong singer and be able to hold your own harmony line alongside others.

We will cover a variety of items to include:
• Becoming a confident and clear teacher
• Integrating warm up techniques into the session
• Working with different vocal ranges and harmonies
• Establishing a real listening mood in your group

Booking is essential as places are limited. Feel free to get in touch to find out more or to discuss whether this training day will be suitable for you.

Youth Mental Health Day in Dunmanway – March 2016

Great music session on the Cumascu Wellness bus with secondary students from Clonakilty, Bantry, Dunmanway and Schull.  Drumming, body percussion, singing, shakin’, guitar playing….they were such an enthusiastic group! Fantastic. Also working alongside WCMHS arts and mental health coordinator Kevin Shanahan and Nick on his music technology and wacky experimental vocals!! Great to be in a team and hope to be doing more of that in the future.

The Cumascu bus is getting re-vamped and we will hopefully be able to do more music projects based from it this year.
