Bill Henderson & Kate O'Connell
A workshop for those wanting to develop their skills to lead singing groups or incorporate songs into their group work.
The Findhorn Foundation and surrounding community supports an abundance of vibrant singing groups singing inspirational songs of many different styles from around the world.
Bring more singing into your life, your community and your workplace. Many previous participants have gone on to establish new singing groups.
Kate and Bill draw on over 50 years of practice and enthusiasm and a vast repertoire of songs, both sacred and secular. They are passionate to pass on their experience of working with natural voice and song, knowing its beneficial effect and healing power on a personal, community and global level; equally at home teaching a Beach Boys arrangement as a devotional mantra.
Topics explored during the workshop include:
- Developing one's natural voice
- Principles of natural voice singing
- How to teach a song
- Structuring of a singing session
- Group management
- Musical technique and rhythm
- Song and nature
- Improvisation and creating your own song
All participants will also have an opportunity to teach a song to the rest of the group.
