Natural Voice Leaders’ Training
11 July 2020 - 18 July 2020
An intensive residential course focusing on the natural melodic voice, led by Frankie Armstrong and Sarah Harman

The Natural Voice Leaders’ Training is designed for people who already run voice workshops or singing groups, those who wish to, or those who want to incorporate voice into their existing work.

Sarah and Frankie intend to model the importance of finding dynamic relaxation, using imagination and humour, and remembering that laughing is one of the best things for the body and voice. In addition to individual and group activities to help people focus on their own needs in these areas, we also look at:

  • working on and making the most of your own voice,
  • the appropriate stepping stones to help others make the most of their voices,
  • the process of working with groups,
  • creating and setting up improvisations,
  • structuring and pacing workshops,
  • dealing with difficult situations/individuals,
  • contexts in which this approach can be applied,
  • starting and sustaining choirs and other groups.

In addition to all of the above, participants will be given a course handbook, with a
comprehensive range of exercises and practical information on areas around freelance working as a voice leader. They will also receive a CD with exercises for the body, the breath and the voice, and ways of exploring vocal technique.
