sparkleman is away
Well I was a little disappointed by the workshop – there really wasn’t very much singing at all. However there was a lot of stretching, noise-making (at one point we were all swinging our hips and trying to be angry with each other whilst making horse noises), breathing and relaxation. I can see what she’s doing, I feel much more confident with the people there, and we all explored a little about relationships with our voices – but I want to sing!
At the end our teacher led us through a dance-chant where we had to copy her voice whilst stepping backwards and forwards into a circle. That was fun, and moving. I haven’t sung in a group like that since school. It reminded me of tribal singing.
I’m much more aware of my body today, and it’s capacity to generate sound. I’m confident about going next week. The people were lovely. Many positives.
I’m impatient, that’s all :-) I guess that demonstrates how much I want to do this thing.
