    Time to have a singing lesson

    Barbara Ann says, “after all the years I’ve spent training and teaching singing technique the thing that amazes me most is this – kids love to sing, but what happens to us when we grow-up? Somehow we loose permission to use our voice and just close down the part of ourselves that loves to spontaneously music-make. My mission is to loosen us all up so we can experience the laughter and joy that comes with singing for the pure pleasure of it.” 

    “I was always told I couldn’t sing. Thank you for proving them all wrong. You’ve helped me find my voice and a big part of myself which means so much to me.” Jan, 53, Nurse

    “You really took us out of the comfort zone, but with you it was ok, I never thought I would sing like that!” Rene, 36, Home-maker

    “I’m shaking right now, I haven’t let myself be heard like that since I was a boy. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to let something out I’ve been holding inside for a very long time.”
     Trevor, 38, Builder

    “Wow, Barbara you are a natural born teacher!”
    Yvette, 52, Office Administrator,
    Singing Workshop Participant

    They’re singing so out of tune . . . they could be a big star!?

    Tweet Bad singing technique – is it really such a barrier to making it big? Have you ever noticed how many singing stars habitually and regularly sing, ‘out of tune’, nasally, with shallow gaspy breathing and / or loads of throat constriction?
