Singing School

The Singing School is both a social and musical meeting place. Within the diversity of people that form the group, the main objective is to enjoy a dynamic, playful and deep learning. The Singing School is also a place to discover what role the body and breath play when singing, channelling both parts through the songs in order to get the maximum technical, emotional and experiential enrichment from the repertoire. In short, it’s a place for personal growth relating to one’s body harmony, breathing and emotions, but also through expressing, growing and living the musical experience of sharing through music.

MODALITIES

Choir Modality:

The following points will be worked on:

  • Body: learn different ways to tune into the body before singing. Different ways to relax, wake up and tone up the muscles to have more body awareness and gain breathing capacity. Learn resources to be and feel better, directed and applied to the voice.
  • Breathing: to know and apply the different types of breathing in order to have more amplitude and security when expressing, enjoying a varied repertoire.
  • Voice: to know and learn about the parameters of the voice in an easy, close and effective way enabling each student to personally grow more and develop within the quality of the group.
  • Choir and soloists: to know the corporate sense of the choir, and the magic that the group generates by expressing and interpreting. One same breath, one same intensity, one same intention. Corporate work of the sections and also the role developed by a soloist.
  • Repertoire: the repertoire will be completely channelled with the warming-up work, body, breathing and vocal technique that is done at the beginning of the sessions, so that the learning and global quality will be exciting and enriching, both at individual and group level.
