Do you struggle in your choir because you cannot sing at sight? Perhaps you are inhibited from auditioning for a choir because written music seems too much like a foreign language to you? Barbara will offer some simple tools to get you going and help to dispel the mystique (or possibly phobia!) of reading music. Rhythm and pitch notation will be explored with the help of tonic sol-fa and hand signs. Some basic theory, including understanding key and time signatures, will be introduced along with the practical work, to set you on the road for fuller participation in choral singing - and you’ll be given hints for regular follow-up practice! A small additional charge of £8 - £10 for exercise sheets and a sight singing book is payable directly to Barbara at the course.
