The Secrets to Singing – Learn to sing and perform!

Studies of what makes people happy show that a frequent feature common amongst those who declare themselves “very happy” is that they sing in a choir. Singing in the company of others would appear to make us happier and healthier. Yet, many of us lack confidence - we have somehow convinced ourselves that we are no good at singing. This weekend is your chance to overcome your doubts and inhibitions and learn to sing or, if you have never had any proper tuition, to learn to sing better – and have fun at the same time.

Led by: Jenny Peplow

Please arrive by 6pm on Friday. Course ends with lunch on Sunday.

This weekend is your chance to overcome your doubts and inhibitions and learn to sing or, if you have never had any proper tuition, to learn to sing better – and have fun at the same time.

Tutor Jenny Peplow has been teaching people to sing individually and in groups and choirs for 30 years. She has private pupils and also currently directs four different choirs. A professional singer herself, she is well aware of the benefits of singing properly, and of the breathing and other techniques that help to produce a beautiful sound. “It’s amazing what a few singing lessons can do for our voices.” comments Jenny.

Come and learn some of the secrets of the trade and discover the benefits and joys of harmony singing. The weekend will culminate in the participants learning a couple of songs and singing them in (no doubt beautiful!) harmony.

The course is open to all, people with no experience of singing and people with some. There is no requirement to be able to read music.
