Rhiannon Santa Cruz mountains retreat
- Taking Flight
a vocal workshop
March 15-16, 2003
10am to 5pm
in the mountains above Santa Cruz, CA
This weekend workshop is a wonderful opportunity for those of you with
good singing skills to spend two days working with Rhiannon at a
mountain retreat close to the Bay Area. The workshop takes place at the
top of a ridge in an off the grid, straw bale house full of light and
good energy. Rhiannon says "The space where we sing is the best I know
of: great shape to accommodate circling, fine sound gear and piano, and
wonderful accommodations so everyone is comfortable and able to dig into
their musical soul. I find this place so satisfying personally, and the
singers we have gathered in our last three workshops there were very
strong and from all around the state of California." There is a hot tub
just outside and plenty of trails for walking and singing. If you have
good basic music skills, a strong love of improvisation and the desire
to get out into the beautiful countryside of the Santa Cruz Mountains,
Come on! We look forward to sharing music and nature with you at Skyote
Mountain in March.
For singers who have developed basic skills in rhythm and pitch and are
comfortable singing in a group setting, this weekend is a supportive and
inspiring environment for exploring the rich and alive world of
improvisation. Working alone, in pairs, and in ensemble, students
strengthen skills in rhythm, vocal technique, body integration, harmony
and ear training. Improvisation exercises put these tools into context
and encourage deep listening, musical awareness and expanded creativity.
Tap into new levels of personal expression as Rhiannon's innovative
exercises guide you to expand your musical horizons!
Rhiannon is a vibrant, gifted singer and master teacher who has been
bringing her unique and potent blend of world music, jazz, improvisation
and storytelling to students and audiences for three decades. At the
center of Rhiannons teaching is the integration of the breath, body,
and voice. Her workshops provide a wholistic and challenging environment
for singers to let go of the known and discover a more spontaneous
musical expression. Her strong, compassionate, and constructive guidance
encourages participants to step beyond their edge and fly!
