This session is for people who love to sing.
If you sing in a conventional choir and want to broaden your horizons this workshop is for you. There will be no sheet music everything is learned by ear and will focus on.....

Exercises on Rhythm, time, different grooves and feels e.g. gospel, reggae, swing.
Circle singing to work on aural skills.
Learning songs in harmony by ear.

Andi Hopgood sings with The London Vocal Project one of the UK's leading contemporary vocal ensembles, specialising in jazz and groove music, alongside jazz composer and educator Pete Churchill. She is also musical director of The Cambridge Jazz Festival Choir, Suffolk Soul Singers and Suffolk soul singers youth.

We hope to perform the pieces we learn later that day at Andi's festival gig with her trio at Hot Numbers (3:00 - 5:30pm).
