Fabulous holidays in two of Europes MOst stunning locations.
The Italian Riviera & The South of France.
Your Host & Singing Teacher,
I have sang and played my way around the world for over 30 years and have taught piano and singing to all age groups, privately and in schools, and I am delighted to be offering Singing Holidays in two of my favourite places.
I have lived in both of these locations and know the areas well and I am very fortunate to have two venues for my singing classes that I am proud to offer, the Scuola diMusica 'Ottorino Respighi' in San Remo, Italy, and the Chateau du Puits es Pratx in Ginestas in the Languedoc Rousillon area of France.
After studying music with the London College of Music I later progressed to specializing in Jazz. On these holidays I have included a cross section of styles to my syllabuses which I feel will appeal to the mass. I include Acapella singing, Big Band Swing, Latin and Jazz.
The concept of the holidays is to combine the joyful art of singing whilst exploring these two beautiful locations.
I will be teaching you how to sing in Italian and in French. You will learn basic singing techniques and simple harmonies and we will have a lot of fun learning a small repertoire of songs that we will perform on the finale day.
You will learn how to pronounce the words and phrases of well known popular Italian and French songs. So, if you would like to sing 'Volare' and other classic Italian songs and soak up La Dolce Vita in San Remo then I hope to see you in Italy. If you would like to experience singing in a lovely chateau in the South of France and spend a week immersed in the Beautiful Languedoc area then I hope to see you in France!
Both of these locations have a lot to offer and I'm sure
you will find plenty of things to occupy your free time. San Remo has it's beautiful Casino and a wealth of old and new interests to explore. In the Languedoc in France you will be surrounded by vineyards and the beautiful Canal du Midi, a stunning area to discover!
I have been teaching for many years and I find no greater pleasure than to see people enjoying singing, especially in a language they are not used to!
The classes in Italy are arranged for no more than ten people, a nice small number to work with in the cosy music school in San Remo. Workshops and classes held at the Chateau du Puit in France can accommodate up to twenty participants. The Chateau offers a wonderful space to work in and is a perfect venue for residential singing holidays.
We will sing as a group and you will also have the opportunity to sing harmonies and solo lines. So regardless of your ability I hope you will consider joining in the fun on these singing holidays, which are open to adults of all ages and abilities, it is a fun learning experience to be enjoyed by all.
Thank you for your interest and I hope to meet you soon!
