Your Vital Voice - Lessons from Surya

Vital Voices is about a new way of learning to sing, taking your voice in a new musical direction; it’s not something you may have experienced before, or seen on TV. It’s not Glee, nor a church choir or a community sing-song but a way to give ‘Voice’ to the music inside you, and share it with others in a relaxed setting. We not only sing part-songs but also work on developing range and tone. We learn to improvise and harmonise, playing with and learning how to care for our voices. Our group also uses percussion to enhance our musicality.
