Spring dates for the Daring and Sharing Laboratories

Dear Improv and Circlesinging friends,

thank you for your sustained interested in these improv and circlesinging sessions, for turning up with enthusiasm and consistency. I feel privileged to be working regularly with such a varied and creative group of singers, and the atmosphere of the sessions has been one of deep listening, curiosity, uplifting collaboration and collective musical intelligence emerging. This is precious, way beyond that I could have dreamed of when this (ad)venture started off last year.

here are the Spring dates for the Daring and Sharing Laboratories upcoming.

Saturdays 16 April, 7 May, 11 June, 9 July
11 am- 2 pm

The core elements  will be Circlesinging and VoiceOrchestra techniques, grooves and harmonic sequences, with two distinct and complementary objectives:
*to create strong, supportive, interesting backgrounds for the singers to explore and develop solo improvisation.
*to empower singers to create, orchestrate and conduct their own circlesongs and other forms of collaborative music.

if you prefer to, you can visit the doodle link below with the dates and let me know your availability (your name won’t be disclosed) .There will be some new dates if these fill up, or  I ‘ll offer an alternative if most of you can’t make one of them.

and if numbers continue to grow, or people want longer sessions, we’ll add the afternoon sessions (I’m aware that some of you would prefer this timeslot)  and also give you the option to stay for the full day for a discounted rate (£40)

where? Bickerton House, 25 Bickerton Rd N19 5JT  (buzzer: studio 22 john oakley)
how much? £25/session. Advance booking for block of 4 sessions: £80

Advance booking per session available at my website:  http://www.guillermo.co.uk/product/laboratory-1-session/

On June 29, I‘ll be running a session on Circlesinging and collaborative music making for Sound Connections, a wonderful organisation that provides training for teachers and music teachers wanting to develop and expand their skills. Here’s the link : http://www.sound-connections.org.uk/events/an-introduction-to-circlesinging

Dear All,

everything else remains the same…

the address:   Bickerton House, Bickerton Rd, London N19 5JT(buzzer: studio 22 john oakley)
the price:  £15/£5 concessions. £50 for block of 4 sessions

the invitation:
the Big Singing Circle is a singing gathering open to all. an invitation to live big, to share and nourish each other through sound. with circle songs, chants and harmony songs from all over the world we will explore voice, resonance and the sacred.

last year’s sessions became a joyful monthly respite for fast-paced London life, a place for contemplation and companionship both in sound and silence. Also a chance to grow in confidence and release sound within a safe and supportive atmosphere for the ones who are newer to singing or might have old ‘ can’t sing’ stories to leave behind. Let’s continue and deepen the exploration together…you are welcome to drop in for the dates that you can make or to join for the whole term. Also to share this email with others who might be interested.

hope to see you there…
love  Guillermo

Regular London Workshops 2016

Group singing can be an wonderful way to enhance well-being and unwind from the pressures of the day…i invite participants to experience self- tenderness, life force flowing in their bodies as sound, and to notice the powerful field  that can emerge when human beings resonate together.

Singing circles are safe, informal singing gatherings. We’ll use sound, voice and rhythm to release stress, build community and have fun.The sessions will include harmony songs from all over the world, breath-work, vocal exercises, chants and games. You’ll leave feeling relaxed, energized and uplifted, with mind and body still and peaceful. Open to all levels of experience, ‘beginners’ are especially welcome. 

I’m currently leading two regular singing groups in London. They are held in different areas of town, from 7.45pm to 9.45pm on weekdays. The numbers are 6 to 15 people per workshop. Most people are regulars but we admit drop-ins.  There’s a Tuesday group in Bounds Green N11 every other week, and  Wednesday group in Barnsbury N1 once a month.

You are very welcome to join, or for more information, fill in the contact form below or email grozenthuler@yahoo.co.uk.

Bounds Green N11:  Tuesdays January 19, February 2 and 16, March 1 and 15, April 5 and 19

Full term ( 7 sessions) £100

Half term ( 4 sessions)   £60

One session drop-in £17.50

Barnsbury N1:Wednesdays January 20, February 17, March 2 and 16

People who pay for half term can attend to any of the 8 sessions until they cover 4 and then pay the drop in rate if they want to come to more than 4 sessions. As usual,  people can pay cash, cheque or BACS.

Sessions start 19.45 (1930 in N1) . They finish 21.45 (2130 in N1)and we generally stay for a chat and shared drink and nibbles…
