Singing and Songwriting
Techniques and Vocal Harmony
I have been recently directing and conducting a choir in the Blue Mountains region. We successfully launched a song co-written by a group of Palliative care volunteers. We have also presented several public performances. More recently I was asked to teach a workshop entitled “Healing Through Song” at the annual state Palliative Care Conference held in Katoomba. We focussed mainly on the lyric component of song-writing and looked at ways in which the song can have the power to serve as a healing agent in the lives of people who suffer loss.
Having studied singing for over 15years, I am able to offer techniques for gaining the most breathing capacity for singing which enables people to sing very freely. I also teach workshops on finding harmonies for songs and have taught acapella arrangements for choirs in the Blue Mountains area.
