Tuition in Voice, woodwind,
piano & guitar

with Rob & Jill Oats

Everyone can enjoy the feeling of singing.
Reconnect with your voice.

The whole aim of singing and toning is to have fun, relax and relieve stress.
Through the ages people have been "singing the blues away." That is what singing is all about.
We sing for joy, we sing with grief, we sing to show our emotional state of mind.
With that in mind I run these events in a casual relaxed atmosphere where people can remove the barriers and be themselves.

Learn to sing from the Heart
and unfold your own wonderful voice.
It helps to reduce stress and tension

Available for Resonant Sings and Voice Workshops

The Details

Resonant Sings: These sessions have been run at festivals and conferences around the state. We take you through a series of simple breathing exercises to loosen up the body and get the energy flowing freely. A guided relaxation using harmonic voice and Tibetan singing bowls and bells calms the mind, allowing the body to be open to creating the resonance of the voice. Then we sing a few songs, experiment with rounds and harmonies and generally have fun with the voice. This all results in improving the energy levels and is a great way to energise the body, get the voice humming and have a bit of fun. If done first thing in the morning they will give people energy to get through a day's hectic scedule or during the day to recharge the batteries..

Sessions are usually 1 - 2 hrs.

Voice Workshops: (limit of 6 - 10) Aimed at developing the voice by integrating the whole body into the creation of the sound. I assist people to hear the sound of their own voice and identify which area is under strain and thereby making adjustments to alleviate the tension. This culminates in a totally relaxed full resonant voice. You are guided through various exercises designed to give you the tools to be able to sing with confidence and enjoy your own resonant voice. We also touch on the healing aspect of vocal toning and singing as a way of releasing emotional blocks.
For song practise during sessions I now have the use of CD backing to provide better accompaniment.
The following things are introduced:

The Workshops can be over one or two days and allow you to focus for a longer period and therefore clear the barriers that are locking up and blocking the voice. There is plenty of 'one-on-one' time as well as partner and group activities. When the commitment is given the results will come. This is a fun way to get the most out of your voice and really experience what an open and resonant voice can do for you. The workshops are aimed at all levels so that the more experienced people can 'fine tune' what they have learnt in previously.

Development of the voice is a never ending journey so you may as well take your time, relax and enjoy the trip!

You will learn how to use your voice
without losing your voice.
