Vocal Workshops

Tamara Lea has also created a 5 Wednesdays to A Great Soloists Voice Workshop.This workshop is a wonderful way to experience singing as a solo singer in an inclusive environment with people like you who are wanting to get a little bit out of their comfort zone!

These workshops are for people who have little or no experience as a solo singer as well as for those who already have experience and are ready to move to another level of performance. The purpose is for us all to see where our voice can take us.

Many people think they can’t sing. They may have been told that by some “expert” or been shut down by a deprecating comment from a peer or family member. Stories like these keep many people away from the joy and beauty of singing. Even those who have found their voice in a choir are sometimes fearful of singing solo. Is it time to free yourself from those old, negative stories and allow the gift of singing and music to flow into your life?

Everyone can sing…you can sing…no one is tone deaf! It takes practice, repetition and supportive guidance…..that’s all!

Other workshops available:

Learn to Sing the Blues level 1 & 2
Singing for Beginners
Riffing and Runs
For Men Only
Weekend Recording Workshops

Location of Workshop will be determined.
