Friday 13 – Sunday 15 February 2015
Course No. 3124
Accompanist: Colin Hunt
Solo Study Course
For advanced singers and singing teachers, Joy’s course works on the voice, body and mind as she considers the philosophical needs of each singer. We will use your imagination and inherent musicality to sing with beauty, confidence and freedom and remembering, above all, to listen. After investigating the different possibilities for musical expression you can sing with the confidence that there is no opportunity which has been left unexplored.
Joy’s training is centred on the Bel Canto principles of beauty, quality, legato and freedom of voice, body and spirit; she believes singing to be the voice of the soul. Her teaching is built on the teaching of Frederick Husler, with whom she studied for nine years and who maintained that teaching is a relationship between pupil and teacher with respect and commitment on both sides.
Prepare two pieces from any area of 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, roughly 30 minutes drive from Bath. Frome Train station is roughly 2.5 miles from Jackdaws with direct trains from Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and London.
