I’m off to teach in Poland in July at the Vocal Camp.

I am very excited about this summer as I am off to Poland for the first time to teach and hang out with a bunch of singers who want to work on their voices and learn more about different styles. I can’t think of a better way to get to know another country and culture than through music! I’ll be running the jazz class and teaching 1-2-1, but am sure I will be learning just as much.

London based teachers Julie Gossage (MT/Classical) and Matt Colthart  (Gospel/MT) will be coming over with me.

This Vocal Camp has been organised by the wonderful Andres Martorell (Ireland) and Magda Navarrete (Poland). If you are interested in joining us and exploring jazz, musical theatre, gospel, Indian improv, songwriting, latin singing and more, then click HERE.

Vocal Camp is divided into three modules:

  • Morning – Training your voice – everyone will get a daily one-to-one lessons
  • Afternoon – Working on styles – you will participate in 4 daily workshops. All camp members attend the Gospel Choir workshops and also attend 3 other daily workshops chosen from the program.
  • Night – Using your voice – we will prepare karaoke evenings, concerts, educational movies and music movies. On Tuesday there will be a party at the bonfire area. Vocal Camp will finish on Saturday with the final concert.
Go direct to the website to check out the details and to book.
PS. To reassure you all classes will be given in English (or I’d be in trouble!)

Testimonials from last year

The promising content of the workshop leaflet turned into reality and in the end, it was even more that I’d expected. Teachers who not only teach but also inspire, fabulous picturesque site, great atmosphere and people – with some of them I’m still in touch:) The workshop brings fond memories and I’m looking forward to the 2012 edition! Anna Brzozowska

Great vocal lessons in the morning and great parties in the evening. The atmosphere was unique. Vocal Camp took place in a very peaceful green area. It was quite normal to wake up in the morning and spot great singers vocalizing in the garden, in the restaurant, in the swimming pool… anywhere! Most of all it was a unique opportunity to meet valuable friends. Matteo Mazzucca
