Workshop: Introduction to Song Leading

A day’s practical introduction to facilitating community singing. We’ll cover the basics for anyone new to group leading, including selection of repertoire, appropriate warm ups, planning sessions, non-verbal communication and teaching methods. This would also be a good opportunity to consolidate your practice if you have only been leading a group for a short period.

This workshop is also suitable for anyone wishing to improve their skills and gain confidence before progressing onto the Level 2 Standard Training with The Musical Breath

We are planning to run this course again in October 2020. Please email liz@lizswain.co.uk for more information
