TRADITIONAL IRISH SINGING WORKSHOP ( SEAN NÓS STYLE)

 

Have you ever listened to Irish traditional music, and thought, WOW, how do they do it? Could I do it?

Well, the tradition is something very special, and the roots go very deep into the heart, and blood memory for some. In this 2 hour class, we'll explore a traditional song at depth, and learn the technique how the embellishments work, and where to put them.

Willingness to try is important for this class, but an exceptional singing voice or previous experience is not needed.  At the end of the time, we'll put the piece together, and Tara will sing a couple of Sean Nós songs so folks get the sense of how to work with this style of singing.

VOCAL ENSEMBLE GROUPS

Vocal Ensemble Groups  are for youth and adults.  

We will focus on small groups of committed singers to get deeper development over a variety of styles, where vocal training is a big component of our learning time. 

Vocal ensemble groups will include all learning materials,  in harmony parts and practice weekly. Groups will be offered various performing opportunities with the studio's winter and spring recitals, as well as community events.

Small groups depend on practice and commitment to attend. This should be your intention, if  for registering for this program.
