    Learn singing with an experienced singing teacher

    Barbara has been singing in public since age 6. With a business consultancy background in team dynamics Soundworkz can offer a series of team building, conference and event opener packages designed to meet your goals. Need a fun, interactive and relaxing experience that can loosen up the group and create rapport? Soundworkz has the right package for you. Need a targeted session to address issues around communication, collaboration and/or creativity? Soundworkz has the product for you.

    Vocalising together is the perfect metaphor for how to create group harmony. Sessions provide huge scope to open up issues in the team dynamic in a relaxed and non-threatening way and address them positively and productively.

    Barbara says, “the great thing about working with the team dynamic in this way is that it’s not at all heavy-handed. When a group sing, themes around how we share, interact and communicate effectively with others just naturally arise. Usually there’s so much laughter it’s quite hard to move the group on to the next activity! It’s such an incredible release for people to share singing together! I love that group participants can be completely unaware of what is being addressed but the shift still happens!”

    “The amount of laughter and fun we all had participating in Barbara’s workshop was fantastic. This was the ideal exercise for a team such as ours that is based in different locations. Barbara amazed me with her ability to coax even a staunch non-singer like myself, out of my comfort zone.”

    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? This is something that quite frequently preys at the back of my mind […]
