Gateshead International Jazz Festival 2018 Presents

Big Sing Workshop led by Pete Churchill

Booking Information

Open to all ages

Venue: The Barbour Room

Tickets: £12.50


Pete Churchill is a hugely experienced jazz educator with a particular specialism in running vocal worshops and ensembles for all ages. This workshop will focus on moving in a way that informs music making connecting the body and the text. If we learn to move well (if our body is our metronome!) then we will be ready to explore the rhythm of the words and to rediscover the phonetic power of our own language…get the ‘sound’ right and the meaning will follow.

This workshop will also focus on learning by ear and developing the memory enabling singers to learn an astonishing amount of material in a very short time. So come and prove you groove!

Workshop participants will also have the opportunity to share what they have learnt on the Concourse Stage at 1pm (not compulsory – but will be a lot of fun!)
