A professional development opportunity for singing leaders.
Join vocal coach and MD Nicola Wydenbach for a one day introductory training session into leading singing for people with Parkinson's.
Sunday 17 November 2019
10:00 - 16:00
Studio 2, Laban Building, Creekside, London SE8 3DZ
Trinity Laban are offering community choir leaders, vocal teachers or music therapists confident in group leading the opportunity to find out more about leading singing for people living with Parkinson’s disease.
You will be an experienced singing leader, with a core repertoire which can be taught by ear, simple breathing and vocal warm up exercises and a basic knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the voice.
Led by Learning & Participation Fellow, Musical Director and Vocal Coach Nicola Wydenbach, the training day will offer an introduction in how to adapt community singing specifically for people with Parkinson's. As the condition progresses, the larynx becomes weaker which impacts the volume and strength of the voice. Singing has been found to alleviate some of these symptoms and improve the voice. This course will give you an insight into exercises, warm ups, songs and the necessary skills to begin working with People with Parkinson's.
