At the weekly Zoom sessions we will focus on
- building vocal capacity,
- becoming comfortable with singing on our own,
- expanding our repertoire,
- exploring and learning new harmonies
- learning some basics of how to harmonize spontaneously
We will also have a chance to relax and have fun together.
Letz Sing will offer three, one hour sessions of focused singing every week. Each session includes a warm-up, the learning of new material, and time to just sing from a growing repertoire of favourite songs. All songs, chants, and rounds are still taught step by step in the age-old tradition of call and response.
Since we have began gathering in mid March, many members of Letz Sing who have cast aside their fear of singing on their own in a Zoom session and are enjoying singing with comfort and ease each week. We all had to adapt in order to carry on singing and we managed to do that and have fun.
If you consider your self a non-singer come and give this a try. Those who are already singing with ease will find that they have to adjust expectations, but their is still a lot we can learn together gathering online.
At Letz Sing fall sessions we will focus in on listening, and skill building. The lessons are step by step and easy to follow. When you become a member of Letz Sing you are given access to the membership page where you will find song files and words to refer to.
Many of the benefits of singing can be accomplished in a Zoom sessions. I think those of us who attended regularly were surprised to realize that a sense of community was established after a few sessions of seeing familiar faces every week. Some people reported that they were singing more at home and singing on their own realized that their voices were becoming stronger and they were feeling more confident when singing. I as well as others also reported that they felt a lift in their spirits by the end of the session.
Nothing can replace singing in harmony in a large group of people. I know I am missing that connection on so many levels, but for now this is what we can do.
Singing is better than not singing!
