The courses at the North Sea Vocal Academy are very intensive. The singers get daily individual singing lessons, vocal coaching, individual and group movement sessions. The accompanists get daily individual tuition with the vocal coach and coaching from singing teachers along with accompaniment of the singers. All participate in recording workshop at end of the week, including individual recording session with a sound engineer.
Days typically start early with a group movement session where we warm up our bodies with stretching, aerobic exercise and perhaps work on some dance routines. This might be a shock for some of our participants but all agree it gets the mind and the body ready to work! Everybody feels the benefit of it in their individual lessons and coaching.
As well as the group movement sessions, participants get the chance to work one on one with the movement teacher.
Our courses give singers and accompanists a great chance to work on any thing they want to in an intense way but without pressure: a chance to take risks, to experiment and to learn about your possibilities as a performer.
Across the lessons, participants get a chance to combine work on movement, interpretation and technique in a holistic way while having the chance to be inspired by the work of others and by the beautiful surroundings of the North Jutland countryside.
