Dartford Township Choir - Interpretation and Performance Workshop
with Mike King
Once again we have had an exceptional response from people who took part in this workshop. Below is a small selection (names omitted and minor editing):
it was a good workshop, Mike made it relaxed and a safe environment as always. Although it was a bit nervewracking at first it didn't take long to feel comfortable with each other. I was amazed how quickly the time went.
I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and learning how to interpret a song is so valuable
and really enhances a performance. Mike is a great teacher and he really inspires
people to deliver a song and connect with an audience.
I'm sure everyone else would agree with me - I had a great time at the workshop. There was such a lovely supportive atmosphere. I think we all learnt a lot and especially gained confidence. I'd love to do the whole workshop again. Brilliant. Thanks for organising.
Since the workshop, I've been listening to music in a different way, noticing the
rifts and style and back phrasing - I think I got a lot out of the afternoon, and
I really did enjoy it!
Thanks Mike and DTC for arranging it.
When I heard just a few days before that there were places available it seemed an awful waste of a great opportunity [not to join]. I thought at least I might learn something on technique and anyway singing is always a pleasure. What an understatement!!! I won't go on about Mike's talents; you know them well. What helped to make the day such an enjoyable experience was the encour- aging attitude of the rest of the group. What a lovely lot DTC members are! And yes, not only was it great fun and went far too fast but I did learn a lot.
