Many of you joined our community because you've always dreamed of being up on stage, singing your heart out in front of a live audience…yet somehow, you've scarcely ever tried it. Maybe you've dipped your toe in the water a little at a karaoke night or two…or maybe you've never sang outside the safety of your shower, your car, or your living room. Perhaps you're afraid that your voice just isn't very good. Or maybe the very idea of singing in front of other people just scares the living daylights out of you!
For those who fit the above description, we're pleased to announce the next of our upcoming educational events,
The BEGINNING-BEGINNERS Group Singing Class
These laid-back, low-pressure group singing classes are for the beginners in our group who are excited about just getting their feet wet, learning some basic ear training, breathing, and technique, and being guided through their initial nervousness towards being able to sing in front of other people. It's a great way to help all of you take a strong step outside of your comfort zones in a safe, non-judgmental, and low stress environment with others who are in the same boat.
A primary goal of these two 2-hour classes is to demystify the act and art of singing; to take it off the pedestal many of us put it on, and guide you through the first real steps you can take towards becoming a better singer.
A few of the topics we'll cover:
* Introduction to proper breathing for singing
* Ear training for strengthening pitch
* Introduction to basic knowledge of how your voice works
* Warm up your voice and improve your control of it
* A series of physical and mental exercises & methods of working through your anxieties, to get through your song(s) without your nerves getting the better of you.
It may seem like a lot of information for a pair of beginner classes, but don't worry: I'll make sure everyone in the room walks out with a firm understanding of everything. Additionally, both sessions will be recorded, and everyone in the classes will receive mp3s of each session.
The rate for both classes combined will be a discounted rate of $30, plus a $10 studio fee ($40 in total). Each of the two classes will last for two hours. The first hour and forty-five minutes (give or take) will cover the above topics in depth, and the last 10-15 minutes will be set aside for you to ask me any questions you may have about what we covered in the class, or about singing and performance in general.
There is limited space in the classes, so please make sure that you know you'll be able to make if you RSVP "Yes". Slots will be on a first come-first serve basis, so make sure you register early if you want to ensure a spot.
We'll be starting each class promptly at 3pm, so please give yourself the time to make sure you arrive a few minutes early.
We look forward to seeing you, starting on the 27th! (:
