What will be covered in this workshop?

  • Finding and adapting a suitable repertoire and warmups
  • Special considerations for concerns such as dementia, Parkinson’s and lung health
  • Building a concert programme and organising events for your group
  • Enhancing your sessions with elements like movement and reminiscence
