The Essex Association of U3As is holding 4 individual study days over the next six months.
Music Workshop, Tree Study Day, Advanced Genealogy, Geology
The first of these is the Music Workshop and will be held on Sunday 24th November 2019 at Broomfield Village Hall, 158 Main Road, Chelmsford CM1 7AH at 9.30am
This is what Shirley writes about the day:
I would like to invite you to expand your horizons by participating in my “Singing for Physical and Mental Wellbeing” workshop.
My name is Shirley Masterson and I am an experienced singing teacher who has led many choral workshops in Essex and who runs the South Woodham Ferrers U3A “ Find Your Voice” choir.
This is a day for everyone – if you can sing or not. The workshop will include brain-training, work on breathing techniques, co-ordination and communicating with others but most of all singing!
You’ll leave with a sense of euphoria and achievement and hopefully, a willingness to carry on singing.
