“When we decide to undertake a practice of any kind, the profundity to which we will delve in is unforeseeable to us. The natural tendency is to think only of the outcome that we seek. When I think retrospectively on my ten years of practicing singing, however, I realize that the real beauty and success is attained not in any end result, but in the moments that I am truly present in my practice. Within practice there is a rare freedom to search for what has true meaning to you. The true purpose of practice is not to be perfect, but to look inward throughout your process and grow. After ten years of practicing singing, I have learned more about myself than I thought there was to learn, but the best part is that I feel as if I have only just begun to come into myself and explore my depth. I will never stop practicing singing because it is not the end result that matters to me, but what I gain from consistently putting my heart and soul into something I love. Beautiful insight into oneself is to be gained from dedication to a meaningful practice.”

Have you always wanted to sing but never tried ?
Do you love to sing….in the shower or driving to work?
Do you think you might have a singing voice that others may want to hear?
Do you love music and the idea of singing for fun and joy?
Let’s get together and explore the beginning art of singing: the idea behind it: the JOY of music and self expression: the craft, breathing, sending sound forward, connecting to the body: songs and how they make us feel – the words, the tones and the messages songwriters send us!!
We will spend time in a small group working on some beginning vocal exercises and applying those to simple song examples…We will sing together and maybe alone at times, with piano or without.. We will play and see!
This workshop is safe, non -judgemental, fun and creative and makes us feel great!!
We will speak in Greek and English for sure and if needed, also french..
Open to anyone of any age from 16 and up who is curious about learning to sing or exploring the idea of it!
Also, for more experienced singers.. another level class will form!
Place: Voula by the sea, Nireos 3 on the beach road, first floor
Fee: 8 euros per person per session. Classes are 4 week sessions
Open to 10 participants
Wear comfortable clothing and come with your voice and your curiosity!
My philosophy about practicing and actually about anything is if you start to force yourself or do anything mechanically.. or because someone told you to.. it will simply not work..
“Working with Joy and Focus ” is truly the only way to learn deeply, to retain the meaning of the learning and to apply it to all aspects of your experience!
This pertains to how you do your work, practicing, working on songs ( they must always be songs you at least like)… how you kiss, what shoes you wear..what you eat and so on!
