Natural Voice Leaders Training (Residential)
21 October 2022 - 28 October 2022
Frankie Armstrong and Sarah Harman lead this week-long residential training course exploring your own natural voice and how to run natural voice singing groups

The course offers a unique opportunity to attend an intensive training focusing on the melodic natural voice and using it with groups. It 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 model the importance of finding dynamic relaxation, using imagination and humour, and remembering that laughter is one of the best things for the body and voice.

The following threads will be explored during the training:

1. Your own voice

  •  working on and making the most of your own voice

2. Preparation for using the voice

  • daily body/voice preparation sessions, focusing on aspects of body release and energising that relate directly to vocal expression
  • individual and group activities that aid voice development
  • the appropriate stepping stones to help others make the most of their voices

3. Leading voice groups

  • the process of working with groups
  • structuring and pacing workshops
  • teaching practice - leading vocal exercises, teaching songs (with supportive feedback)
  • dealing with difficult situations/individuals
  • creating and setting up improvisations

4. Applying this approach

  • contexts in which this approach can be applied
  • starting and sustaining choirs and other groups

The total course fee is £1470 and includes accommodation and all meals.

Note: The course is taught in two formats. In 2022, people can either attend this residential Hertfordshire course, or a two-part modular course in Bristol beginning in May.
