Workshop: Fireside Japes

Thursday 4 March

Fireside Japes

Today we will be looking at songs that question our values and habits in a light-hearted way with the help of artists such as Tom Lehrer and Flanders & Swann. We will explore ways to deliver this type of song. Lots of fun – and you may even come away with a new party piece!

Each session will cost £5 per person. Sessions on the same day will include the same music, with a range of songs that we hope you will really enjoy and will be able to pick up quickly. This day will be different from any other in the series: it will have a special emphasis on delivery and communication.

We are both experienced users of Zoom and work to make this the best experience it can be. We prepare recorded tracks for use in the sessions so that it feels like you are singing with a group of people and you can distinctly hear your part.

Sessions are much more than just singing along, of course: we will provide sheet music and teach the songs as well as supporting your singing voice. There is also a chance to ‘meet up’ with like minded folks.

If you haven’t used Zoom before don’t worry ~ it’s very straightforward and we’re happy to help.

Once you have enrolled, you will be sent pdfs of any music required plus the link for the Zoom session. You can either print the pdfs or, if you have an additional device, read them from a second screen.  If you can’t do either of those, let us know in good time so that we can help!

Frances and Christine will continue to help you to get the best from your voice in a friendly and informal atmosphere.
