“Truly expressive singing requires a strong technical basis.” So says Russell Smythe, professor of singing at the Royal College of Music, who can help you build strong vocal foundations during this weekend course.

He will introduce ideas to show you how to work on good physical alignment, appoggio breathing, balanced phonation, and clean resonation, all of which are fundamental for keeping your voice strong and healthy to promote greater expressive potential.

Please prepare two pieces from the classical repertoire.


All courses are held at Jackdaws in the village of Great Elm, a small village to the west of Frome in Somerset, approximately 30 minutes drive from Bath. Frome Train station is just 3 miles from Jackdaws with direct trains from Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and London.
