Ballad workshop, May 2013, with Lauren McCormick

In this workshop Lauren delved into the wonderful world of traditional ballads and the stories within them, exploring interpretation and touching on techniques that can be used to inform a performance and enhance communication with the audience.  We listened to some ballads being sung, tried out a few ideas, and split into pairs to do some detailed work on the songs we had brought along.  

 Here's some of the feedback:
  • Lovely day – thank you so much
  • A very enjoyable and inspiring day.  So useful.  It has given me lots of ideas to improve my ‘presentation’ of ballad songs.
  • Very enjoyable day.  I learnt a lot and will use that in my singing
  • Great opportunity to broaden my repertoire and find more ways to explore different songs
  • Lovely.  Lauren is fantastic, knowledgeable and inspiring.  Even more singing would be lovely next time!
  • Learnt a lot of how to interpret songs.  Layers and meanings.  Thank you.
