The “Vocal performance class” Ukulele Workshop
with Daphne Roubini
Saturday February 29th 2020
4pm-6pm   $35
(NEW WORKSHOP!)

Daphne ‘Ruby’ Roubini (Vancouver Jazz Festival spotlight artist 2019, and main-stage performer Vancouver Folk Festival 2019) will share her tools and techniques to enhance and help you connect with your true voice, where you will learn simple effective vocal techniques that can be explored with or without your ukulele. AND how to become a confident singer! Whether you plan to play just for yourself, at a party, or on stage, this is an invaluable workshop for anyone who would like to take their singing to the next level!

Then, based on a jazz vocal performance class format, where  ‘the floor’ is then opened up for participants to perform a song that you are working on, with your ukulele for the class with Daphne giving constructive, encouraging feedback, and tips, on how to get the best out of your voice and performance.

Participants will then learn from each others’ experience through observation. This will  be presented in a fun, very supportive environment where participation is encouraged!!  Tips will be given to help with performance nerves too, if you have some that is!

Daphne found that doing vocal performance classes in London really helped on her journey with her ability to perform in front of others as she was as shy singer once! So this is the perfect workshop for you from if you are just ‘coming out’ as a singer, to those who are thinking of ‘performing out’ more regularly.  As Daphne is asked very regularly to give private vocal coaching lesson she created this workshop, as she truly believes that the best way to learn is from others.

So join us for this very supportive, vocally inspiring workshop. Bring a song you are working on to help you take it, and your sharing of it, to the next level!
