Kwyer practice is a guided session in improvised group vocalizing and singing for anyone who wants to sing in a group. Kwyer has been running since January 2009 and has worked with many voices of varying abilities. No experience is necessary. We meet every Monday evening in Fumbally Court Studio, Dublin 8 at 7pm-9pm. I ask that each participant commit to paying for 6 classes in advance at €85 and continue to pay in 6 week blocks after that. This commitment helps generate a sense of longevity for the group which ultimately works best for developing the group sound. Kwyer is facilitated by Regan O'Brien who is a Dublin based performing artist, vocal coach, composer and co-director of Fumbally Court Studio. The session begins with a mindful, physical and vocal warm up, followed by playful, voice production exercises designed to nurture the acceptance of and challenge our individual vocal sounds. Regan facilitates a carefully crafted approach to body-voice work through which, each participant can explore and develop their individual sound within a group setting. Kwyer is about learning how to vocalize your imagination through specific individual and group tasks. It’s a safe environment to get creative with your voice, be supported and learn how to offer support to other singers. The evening finishes with the whole group building a spontaneous composition based on the work done through the session. We learn the principles of improvisation so we can make a new music, your music. If you think you can’t sing, you’re perfect! If you can sing you’re perfect! If you want to sing in a group where we make it up as we go along, Kwyer needs you. In Kwyer, all voices are the right kind of voice.
