Join Libby as she leads, curates and invites your participation and feedback in this first WWMA pilot series of Group Voice classes for Adults.
Carl Clomon’s sessions are designed to enhance the skills of aspiring and experiencedgospel style lead singers and solo artists. Participants will develop skills intended to make them successful singers of any genre of music. In this space, singers can share common issues in a forum that isnurturing and supportive. At the end of the course, participants will have a better understanding of their voice and singing leads and solos.
Circlesongs were born out of Bobby McFerrin’s work with his 12-member a cappella ensemble Voicestra.
If you want to learn more about your voice and build trust in your vocal abilities, if you want tools and practice tinkering with melodies and inventing harmonies, or if just the thought of spending an hour in a roomful of singers makes you giddy, then this is the workshop for you.
We start with the basics and we learn and explore together. You just need to bring your voice, a little bit of courage and a willingness to join in. If this sounds like the right fit, we are waiting to work with you.
Cost: $30 per class, $210.00 for full 7 weeks
