A fantastic opportunity to work on vocal technique in a small group, led by the award-winning conductor and vocal coach Hannah Brine. The size of the group is limited to a maximum of 10, giving plenty of opportunity for 1-to-1 feedback from Hannah. Each week will focus on different aspects of technique, and the sessions are open to anyone whether they are a member of a choir or not. Whilst sessions can be booked individually, singers are encouraged to attend all three sessions if they are able to do so, as the aspects of techniques learnt will build on each other from one week to the next, and there will be benefits from having a continuity of participants.
