Different and stimulating, but above all - fun!!
(duration: 1 hour or 2 hours)
"SONGS FOR LIFE" - Sessions
Margret motivates adult amateurs to sing in
a great variety of international styles, both simple and complex - African
chant to contemporary Australian, Israeli dance song to Indonesian lullaby,
Balkan harmony to Bahaman chantey, Belizean ballad to British round, and
of course traditional and composed songs from the Black Gospel canon.
After a successful decade in Brisbane, and sessions in eastern Victoria, Songs For Life currently not scheduled
(YOUR interest might change this, however!)
emphasises songs (as opposed to sounds/music/poetry or isolated vocal
techniques), and always in a social, cultural, historical, geographical
&/or political context. Learning is by hearing and doing (rather than
reading), and participants are encouraged to attempt most of the parts,
aimed at acquiring the skills and repertoire to incorporate singing more
actively into their daily lives.
