Morning 11am-1pm: The joy of singing (communal) – we start with simple body
loosening and voice exercises. These lead into ways of playing with creative vocal
expression. We create a supportive, easy-going and playful atmosphere, with an
approach of exploration rather than 'getting it right'.

Lunch: 1-2pm: tea and coffee provided. Please bring your own lunch or lunch to share

Afternoon 2-4pm: Song Interpretation for soloists and choirs Inspired by dance and
using Laban's ideas, Frankie shares with us an innovative application of Laban's ideas
to song interpretation to help you make any song your own, whether as a soloist or
as part of a group. No need to sing on your own in this session, though there may be
opportunities for those who want to.
