A flexible Vocal Improvisation camp for families of all ages who really love to sing, at an idyllic spot on the edge of the Brecon Beacons.
Vocal improvisation is a fun, freeing, challenging, creative approach to singing pioneered by the likes of Bobby McFerrin. It’s for confident singers eager to explore, express and be challenged. Here is a video about my teaching.
Often, parents and children love to sing. Sometimes mamas come to class with babes wrapped onto their bodies. Sometimes young teens hang tentatively by the edge of the circle, then jump in and sing their heads off. (And make their Dads cry.) Sometimes my young nieces and god children sit on my shoulders and improvise more easily than many adults I teach. So, let’s create a space where all ages and family members can potentially sing together, and learn fun forms for improvising together that you can take back to your home, school or choir.
Dear families, I suppose that what you need is flexibility. So here is the offer. There’ll be a set schedule. Each of you can come, or not, to what you want. There’s a nice river with good swimming spots, beautiful walks, a maze, a chapel, an organic farm shop, right on the edge of the Brecon Beacons.
It’s a chance for your families to circle up with others, be cooked for and supported, connect; laze by the river, wander the hills and woods, slow down, be together, sit under stars by a fire – and sing!
