We all know that singing in a choir is one of life’s most rewarding experiences. But it’s also true that most choral-singers are amateurs who have had little or no vocal training and that they often encounter problems that enthusiasm alone won’t easily overcome, problems such as intonation and breath control, diction, or struggling to sustain long and high notes. Often individual singers are struggling to cope with feeling hoarse after rehearsals and concerts and some of the joy goes out of what should be a fun activity.
Charlotte regularly helps choirs to find solutions to these problems. Because she is a professional singer herself, with a busy teaching-practice, she recognises the symptoms readily. Her own knowledge of the choral repertoire and an anatomically-informed approach to technique enable her to guide choral singers to find their best and safest sound.
Through day or evening workshops or longer courses of repeat visits, or simply by taking your regular rehearsal as a one-off to work on specific problems with your current repertoire, Charlotte can tailor an approach to suit your choir’s ability, availability and budget and leave you with warm-ups and exercises to work on afterwards.
