This course is for anyone who wants to become a better listener. We will do vocal exercises to learn how to get in touch with our natural voices – which we’ve not been in touch with since we were young children. And we will learn how to listen to each other. We will end up by creating a piece to be performed at the end of class. This is a ‘doing’ class, so participants should come prepared to move and dress accordingly.

Bring a notebook and writing utensil.
