Song workshops at Horsmonden

A series of free workshops concentrating on traditional and old fashioned songs are being held on the first Tuesday of the month at The Gun and Spitroast, Horsmonden until the summer.

The aim is to help singers:

  • become more confident,
  • be heard,
  • ensure they make a musical sound when they open their mouths (and breathe at a suitable moment rather than gasp!),
  • put over the story of their story,
  • find, choose and learn songs

We’ll be working mainly with traditional songs, and intend to avoid accompanying with instruments, at least to begin with – after all, it’s how we sing the song that really matters. Once that’s working well, adding an accompaniment can follow. See the Song Workshops page for more information.
