Local Overtone singing workshop

An interesting proposition that has been brought to our attention by one of our Blokedom, Dr Sweeney. Being always interested in knowing how we might better ourself we thought we should share.

"Dear Blokes, This comes from a lovely man who can do truly incredible things with his noise making organs. I am booked on to the day course and thought others may enjoy it too."

Hello everybody,

LightGarden is offering for you to learn the weird and wonderful technique of overtone singing. Honestly: it's just a knack!

We are often asked, whether you would need to be able to sing. The answer is, somehow the opposite: the main noise you are going to produce whilst overtone singing sounds more like a duck or a frog trying to sing.

This course will take you on a journey to make strange noises, which you would not consider to be pretty. This will establish the "fundamental", the note that will then be (by a simple knack) split into its harmonics, or so to speak into it's rainbow spectrum: that will sound pretty!

We offer a step-by-step learning approach, a mix of techniques to try out, and intuitive learning. So far everybody in our courses has "got it": the beginnings of producing overtones.

We are teaching two different
styles, both suitable for home practise and gentle on the voice. We do not teach the deep growls, that can damage your vocal chords - we leave this to other experts and Mongolian shepherds.....From there you can take it home and keep on enjoying making strange noises. Our body is so clever to incorporate this new ability and develop it over time - through practice.

Because of different demands and time commitments we have decided to offer two different courses:

- One weekend course (a full day on Saturday, 8th October)


- a Friday night course, split into three sessions (7th, 14th and 21st October). These will also be our last courses for this year.

Please help us to make it happen and tell us, whether you are interested. These courses are not established yet, so please don't just turn up on the day.

We can always discuss money arrangements (installments for
example). A booking is made, once you have sent us a deposit of £10 before the 10th September.
