“The Authentic Performer” – guiding singers towards an authentic sound
With Jai Ramage

Saturday 20 April 2024

Friends Meeting House, Ship Street, Brighton, BN1 1AF

A day dedicated to the art of guiding singers towards discovering their authentic sound. In an age where individuality and genuine expression are cherished above all, this event promises to be a transformative experience for both you and your students.

Join us for a day of insightful workshops, engaging discussions, and hands-on exercises, all designed to empower you with innovative techniques and approaches. Together, we will explore the nuanced facets of vocal instruction, delving into methods that nurture each singer’s unique voice, allowing it to flourish in its truest form.
