If you want to sing, We want to have you!
Singer, songwriter and voice teacher extraordinaire Lisa Richards will introduce you to your singing voice in a fun, critique free group singing environment.
You need ZERO experience singing and ZERO belief in your ability to sing. All songs are taught in a call and response format with lyrics provided. Just Bring yourself!
To Join Zoom Meeting click on this link on your Desktop, iPad, laptop. You can use your phone, but I would use something easier to navigate on for your first couple of sessions. Try the link out in advance and practise with a friend. I won't be there, but you will get an idea of what to expect.
A message come up that asks, Do you want to allow this page to open “zoom.us”?
It may ask you if Zoom can use your camera and your audio
Click "yes " for all of these things.
Move your cursor to the bottom of the screen that opens and you will see a 'mute' button in the bottom left hand edge.
You can chat at the beginning of the session, but once we begin, I will ask you all to hit "mute" to mute yourselves.
The experience you will have is of singing one-on-one with me. No One else in the group will be able to hear you, Not even me!
WHY? Internet signal time lag makes it impossible to have the regular SingFling experience where we all sing together at once. It simply doesn't work.
Although initially this may be confronting, as you will be able to hear yourself more, you will also hear me more so it will be GREAT for learning to match pitch in a way that doesn't happen in Singfling now. I urge you to give it a try.
Other zoom features we will use ARE "Chat"
Scroll along the bottom of the screen, towards the right and you will see the word "chat" with a little bubble above it.
Click on "Chat" and a chat window will open up. You can type in messages and questions and chat with each other and me. There is also a feature (a little hand at the bottom of the screen) where you can raise your hand if you have a question or want clarity on something.
Please be aware you will need to be able to hear me and see me as I lead you by singing and playing guitar as I always do. So you might want to connect speakers so you can turn up the volume on your computer.
LYRICS: I have created a shared Folder on Dropbox. I uploaded a small selection of lyrics for our first session. Here is the link. PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE LYRIC FOLDER BEFORE SINGFLING BEGINS, by clicking on the link and following the instructions, and the lyric documents are all in pdf format.
I am asking for a suggested contribution of $10.00 per session but no one will be excluded for not paying.
Payment can ONLY be made at the following Paypal link/address
Love to all
Drop in for a song or stay for the whole hour.
