Free Course: Singers in Isolation
Singdaptive recently contacted eight instructors from around the world and asked them to contribute to a course to help singers during this time of isolation and cancelled performances.
They all jumped at the chance to help singers! The course they created is called, “Develop Your Singing in Isolation” and is free for everyone.
While you are stuck at home, how do you continue to work on your singing? Not only is it difficult to stay motivated, but a lack of accompaniment, space and privacy may be making it extra hard for you to do any singing these days. As much as this pandemic has robbed us of our opportunities to perform, it has also created some unique opportunities for singers to grow their skills, foster creativity and even connect with their communities in ways that they might not have done otherwise.
Find out from a team of instructors including Mark Baxter, Juliet Russell and Kerri Ho, the many ways you can grow, thrive and create as a singer in isolation.
