The Hermon welcomes back Kate Allan for more monthly singing sessions, offering the chance to share your singing voice with others to make music together. 

FOR BEGINNERS heres an opportunity to find your singing voice (yes, its there!) in a supportive group!

You might be a CONFIDENT SINGER who wants to get away from the written page and see what comes from the group in the moment.

And for SONGWRITERS or anyone who would like to start making songs, this is a great way to open yourself up to fresh ideas and break the mould.

IN A CIRCLE, starting with gentle body and vocal warm-ups, we take any note, sing it together and then invite some of the group to add another note until weve built a chord, listening carefully to ourselves and each other.

THEN WE CAN 

  • create and develop a rhythm
  • explore the different sounds we can make with our voices 
  • vary the pitch (high, low), the sound, the speed and the volume
  • add some body percussion eg clapping, foot tapping
  • come up with new ideas as a group as we go
  • build confidence in and awareness of our own and other peoples voices

All this happens and develops very instinctively as our intuition, creativity and innate musicality come to life.

If youve never heard yourself SING FREELY, this is the chance to find that freedom in a judgement-free, natural way.

The sessions are facilitated by Kate Allan, an experienced freelance singer, songwriter and singing for health practitioner whose clients include the NHS, Severn Hospice and other health care providers.
