With less than three days to go there is much ground to cover to make sure it is a great day for everyone who comes along to Sing From Your Soul live vocal workshop on 17th Nov at Shirelive Auditorium Sutherland in Sydney Australia. My awesome little team are working so hard to get it all happening!
If you haven’t registered already then click here and do it now!
Amongst other things, I am going to cover vocal warm up and technique work at Sing From Your Soul. It is really important to know how to use your voice well so you don’t damage it and have to stop singing. It does happen. Don’t let it happen to you. Also the all important ingredient that any performer needs…CONFIDENCE! This one can be a minefield but I am going to simplify this for you and it will change the way you view standing up on a stage or in front of people. There’s a lot more that will be covered on the day and I hope you are thinking about singing in the masterclass. Give it a go!
My very exciting announcement in this blog is to tell you it has been confirmed that my beautiful friend the AMAZING Rebecca Henry will be performing for us. We have been friends for nearly twenty years and I am so honoured that she is coming along to share her incredible gifts. I will be interviewing Rebecca to share with us about working in the music industry as she is possibly one of the most hard working vocalists in Sydney. She is a machine…if you will. If you don’t already know her, please allow me to introduce her with her extensive bio showing all her wonderful experience. Rebecca’s presence and input is one more reason you should register now and tell your friends to join you!
