Workshop: Singing with Alan Law

How to Make Yourself Heard

There is more to a song than notes and words. How often have you listened to a singer who had a good song to sing, but you found your attention wandering ? The singer failed to connect with the audience, and there are some simple ways to fix it.

This workshop will focus on presentation - techniques and tricks to give your singing more impact. We'll talk about melody, phrasing, dynamics and other aspects of performing songs. All singers welcome.

Alan Law is a stalwart of the local bluegrass scene, notably as lead/tenor singer in the Clover Point Drifters. He has also produced and engineered many recordings for local musicians.

Workshop starts at 6:30pm sharp, duration 1 hour. After the workshop, participants are welcome to join a VBA jam which will begin after the workshop. Regular jam fees will be waived for workshop participants.

Fees: $15 payable at the workshop
