Singing masterclasses at Burnley College
Posted by Darren Leadsom on 29 November 2018
Music students from Burnley College took part in two singing masterclasses this November with Lancashire Music Hub Singing Leader Emma Williams. The masterclasses focussed on harmony singing, vocal health and understanding how to arrange vocals with a band.
In addition to her work with the hub in Lancashire schools, Emma leads LYVE (Lancashire Youth Vocal Ensemble) and gigs regularly in venues across the Northwest.
Emma said: “It was great to work with such a diverse range of musicians at Burnley College. It was the first time many of them had met and they created some nice arrangements. Many are gigging regularly and I’m hoping they were able to take away some tips for their continued vocal health.”
Karl Eden is Music, Dance and Performing Arts Programme Leader at Burnley College. He said “The masterclass with Emma was invaluable for our music students – many of our vocalists are self taught and Emma helped them with the fundamentals of looking after their voice, singing and ‘learning to walk before they can run’”
The masterclasses are organised by More Music and funded mainly by Lancashire Music Hub with a contribution from the host college or school. They are aimed at providing inspiring progression opportunities for FE students in Lancashire.
