Term One 2020

Special announcement

We have a very special guest conductor to take choir for the first 8 weeks of choir this term.

Shelly Brown is a brilliant singer and teacher, and I am thrilled that she has agreed to teach for 8 weeks while I’m in Brisbane doing a theatre course.

Shelly will teach a bunch of great songs, including an Irish pub song, a Hawaiian protest song, some gospel songs and a couple of very cool pop songs.

You can find out more about her here:

I will be back from Monday 30 March, for the last 2 weeks and we will then perform (with Shelly) at the Song Dynasty Music Programme Launch at the Brunswick Picture House on Thursday 9 April at 5pm.

It is important that I know who is coming back to choir this term, so please respond to this message by Monday morning.

Once I am sure we have enough people, I will send another message tomorrow about fees.

Fees are $180 or $150, depending on your circumstances. Please pay for the full term upfront.

(Janet’s Big Sing classes in 2020 – Brunswick Heads on Monday mornings at 9.30, or Marvell Hall in Byron Bay on Fridays at 5pm. Or private lessons (or a small group if you would like) on Thursdays or Fridays.)
