Join composer/performer Rylan Gleave in an inclusive workshop for trans and queer voices. This session will give singers, from beginners to more confident performers, the opportunity to learn and make new music together in a trans/queer led and supportive environment. Singers will work in groups exploring new ideas and techniques, and have the opportunity to learn from accomplished vocal leaders about collaborative singing, vocal health, and well-being. Experience not required – willingness to make noise appreciated!
This note that this event will be a dry bar.
About Rylan Gleave
‘When my voice was breaking, there were no resources available to me, or an understanding of what was happening. I was just told my voice would get lower. As a singer, this was confusing, and I couldn’t see progress in any way. I had no idea what my ‘end result’ voice would look like.
That’s why I lead workshops and teach now; so that other trans and non-binary singers can reclaim their voices, and not feel as overwhelmed with either vocal changes or dysphoria. Sessions are created with fun and accessibility in mind, and aim to foster a sense of community with passionate singers of all abilities in the same space.’
