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.
The courses of the Workshop are four-monthly (one term corresponds to a complete subject level). Continuity from one term to the next is not compulsory. You can register at the Secretariat of the Taller de Músics some weeks before the beginning of each term.
