Workshop: Singing & Collaborative Songmaking
Toko Imports, Ithaca
This inclusive workshop is created with both new and experienced vocalists and songmakers in mind. 6-9pm at Toko Imports.
Diane relates the joy of singing through experiential exercises focusing on personal expression and physical sensation. We'll touch on intuitive ways of singing harmony and learn how to join in on a song even when hearing it for the first time. The workshop progresses into collaborative song-making through improvisation in an encouraging environment. Tools shared are adaptable for those looking to either begin or deepen their personal singing and songwriting practice.
6-9pm, open to 15 people, includes refreshments.
Feedback from recent workshop attendees:
"All in all, I feel like a stronger singer after this. Dialing into what I admire about my voice, what I dislike about my voice, how important the voice is, and all the while not taking myself too seriously was GOLDEN." - S. in Austin, TX
"I am trying to learn more about coming back into my body, and making sound is such a natural part of that healing. I am grateful for all that you share, including your encouragement." - G. in Asheville, NC
"I've found it increasingly easier to be vulnerable with my voice and to sing aloud. This has lead me to sing more for and with friends in recent months." - J. in Providence, RI
"I really appreciated the fact that the class consisted of all varying degrees and levels of musicality. I don't think I would have gotten as much (out of it) had all been a group of professionals or novices, etc. The diversity helped to alleviate self-consciousness and also offered perspectives I would have not otherwise seen." - M. in Albuquerque, NM
