Monthly Workshops with Jenny Miller

5 October, 2020 - 14 December, 2020

6:15 pm – 8:30 pm at Barefoot Studio in Brockley London.

Jenny Miller is running her Monday evening Informal workshops twice a month rather than once a month, to allow for social distancing (only 3 per session allowed). Richard Black will be accompanying.

Line, Projection & Intention (Online)

Thursday, October 15th, 5:30 – 7:00pm

Jenny Miller, Dr. Alexandra Baybutt

Jenny as a voice specialist and Alexandra as a Laban/Bartenieff practitioner explore how a singer creates line, projects sound, and conveys intention with breath and body-shaping. We will look at the body/mind response to narrative – how do we captivate our audience with the story we want to tell and how do we tell it expressively?

Refresh & Reboot (Online)

Wednesday, Oct 28th, 5:30 – 7:00 pm

Penny Randall Davis, Evelyn Freebury

Explore ways to refresh your existing vocal technique and all it includes: your breath, your body, yourself. Barefoot movement educator Evy Freebury and vocal tutor Penny Randall-Davis come together to offer their practice and experience in finding vitality from within, and resilience in action-exploring stillness, vibrant movement, and vocal exercises.

Vocal Colour (Online)

Wednesday, November 18th , 5:30 – 7:00 pm

Jenny Miller & Evelyn Freebury

Classical singers want to ‘sound beautiful’. This can become conflated with ‘monotonous consistency’. What is vocal colour in classical voice and how can we find more colours to use? Jenny Miller and Evelyn Freebury will explore ways to liberate colour literally from the inside out.

All Things Coloratura (Online)

Wednesday, November 25th, 5:30 – 7:00 pm

Penny Randall Davis

How do we scale the heights, and maintain optimum flexibility whilst singing with our freest sound? A fun exploration for all voice types of the fascinating art of coloratura.

Introducing Dalcrose – Shaping Phrases (Online)

Thursday, December 10th, 5:30 – 7:00pm

Naomi Burrell

Brilliant solo violinist Naomi Burrell is also an expert Dalcrose trainer, and we thoroughly recommend that you dive into this exploration of movement phrasing, based on the pioneering work of Emile Jacques Dalcrose, himself a student of Fauré, and Bruckner. A deeply refreshing way to connect to music.
