Zoom Singing Sessions
Now more than ever I believe we need to be singing.
There is nothing we can do that will truly replicate singing together while we are flattening the curve. Until such time as we can get together again, I will be setting up Zoom meetings each week for those who want to sing along with me, in front of your computer or phone, in the comfort of your own home.
I am offering hour long song leading on line with a focus on
- breathing deeply,
- listening and ear training,
- strengthening our voices
- confidence in singing,
as well as learning new songs to take us through the rhythm of our everyday lives… as different as those days are right now.
All indications are that we will not be singing in close proximity for a while. I know I will really miss the connection and community I feel when we all sing together.
Zoom sessions are not a substitute for singing together. It will feel quite different singing this way. You will have my voice to follow, and a wonderful opportunity to really hear your own voice and learn to play with it and expand on what you can do with your vocal chords. For those of you new to singing, you can follow along with step by step in the call and response fashion of oral learning. If you are a confident singer, the hour can be a time to work on the sound of your voice and playing with the tone and quality. Each song will have different levels of complexity to explore according to your confidence in singing.
If you would like some new songs to carry you through the day, or feel like an hour of deep breathing might be what you need, or if you like to see the faces of the other choir members singing along all over the Comox Valley and beyond, you might want to give this a try.
It is really different, be sure to be prepared for that. We are all learning as we go so expect the session to continue improving.
The best part of a Zoom session is seeing everyone else singing along. Though different and strange, there is something kind of cool about watching everyone at that moment, singing the same song, from nearby and afar.
There are three sessions each week:
Monday at 7:00 pm
Tuesday 10:00 am
Wednesdays 7:30 pm
You can come as many times a week as you like.
The only prerequisite to joining a sessions is to be on the Letz Sing Zoom email list. You can sign up on the Contact page and send a message stating you want to be on the zoom list. Your name will be added to the Zoom list and you will get links to the weekly sessions.
For those able to pay fees see the Fee tab on this page. If paying fees is difficult at this time, no sweat, just come and sing.
