In May of 2016 I decided to stretch out and took a course to become certified as a SongShine instructor. The course is designed to help those whose speech has been affected by Parkinson’s, stroke, other neurological disorders or an aging voice gain vocal power and strength. I started teaching in the Fall of 2016 and have been running courses ever since. I returned for an intensive three-day SongShine workshop in Palm Desert in November of 2017. Ruthanna Metzgar and Peter Harris were again totally inspiring.
The course offers:
- vocal exercises and group singing to strengthen voices
- body awareness, relaxation and breathing techniques
- drama-based activities to spark imagination and encourage emotional expression
Courses running this Spring:
John Braithwaite Community Centre
Thursdays from 1 to 2 pm, continuing on from present course until June 28th, 2018
Cost: $2 per class
I had the pleasure of doing an interview with my good friend Nathen Aswell for his radio show “For the Love of Music” for Self Discovery Radio on May 13th, 2017.
