Working with Community Choirs and Singers in an Online Space. 

An international pandemic has created many challenges for delivering effective voice education. We can agree that online instruction in singing is not ideal. However, if we start with the premise that people need to sing, then the benefits of singing to individuals far outweigh the inconvenience of working online. 

In this ANCA workshop, Darren Wicks will create a dialogue with you on how we keep people singing. Darren will demonstrate the equipment, materials, and strategies he's using to keep a 100-voice community choir and private singing clients engaged and singing during the challenges of the international pandemic. There will be an opportunity for you to share what's working for you and to ask questions. 

This workshop is co-hosted by ANCA VIC-TAS, NSW-ACT and QLD-NT and is open to all ANCA members and friends Australia wide. 

This event will be followed by the NSW-ACT Annual Chapter Meeting from 5:00-5:30pm AEDT.
