Introduction to Leading Community Singing

Are you a health care professional with a musical background? Do you play an instrument or sing in a group? Do you understand your root from your fifth and your quaver from your crotchet ?

This one day introduction will provide the basics facilitating singing for community groups. You will gain an overview of how to structure a session, the content and delivery of physical, breath and vocal warm-ups, how to teach pulse, tempo and melody ‘by ear’ and structure, as well the basics of musical non-verbal communication i.e. ‘song leading’. It is really important to note this day is a generic introduction and will not give you the skills to lead a group of singers with lung conditions . It will provide a useful introduction for those who wish to progress to the standard 3 day training.
