‘Harmonic Overtone’ & Wellness singing workshops – a 1st for the Riverina region

Bukhi Picture 952 Prashphutita2013-03-02_14225500DeanFrenkel[OvertoneThroatSinger Didge]_IJFR_4X6

These FREE workshops are open to novice, amateur and professional singers, musicians and actors from ages 12 to infinity!

Basically if you have interests in either singing, wellness, breathing and exploring other musical traditions, you are welcome to attend.

During the workshops participants will learn various harmonic overtone (aka ‘throat singing’) vocal techniques and, with Bukhu and Dean, you will work towards developing a performance that will be presented at ‘Wired Open Day’.

The workshops will not only expand your vocal technique(s) but will also encompass wellness and breathing, fortifying your breath and respiratory muscles. This aspect of the workshops will ultimately lengthen your breath duration and tap into all your breath and vocal abilities.

WORKSHOP INFORMATION
