Vocal Camp

with Ralph van Manen, Esther Hart and André Bijleveld

Las Negras, Andalusia, Spain |  -

Introduction

A summary of this week.

If singing is your passion, this is your week!  Expect to do a lot of inspired singing.

But also zoom in on vocal techniques, items as ‘how to keep your voice in shape’, ‘how to overcome stage-fright’ and ‘how to stretch your vocal abilities’. Start off everyday with the goodmorning-choir, straight after breakfast.

This camp is for both non-pro’s ánd professionals, but not for absolute beginners. Reading music is helpful, but not a must. Having some good tone-memory is definitely handy!

Ralph van Manen is your “host” this week. He is an international ASCAP and DOVE awarded singer and songwriter in his own right (he co-wrote the huge USA hit ‘Testify to Love’, but he also wrote for the likes of Cliff Richard, Taylor Dane, Wynonna Judd, Jacky Velasquez and also for Dutch artists like Willeke Alberti and Danny de Munck. He has a lot to tell about how you can develop yourself as a singer, how to stretch your limits, how to overcome stage-fright, and how not to overthink and lose the sheer fun of singing.
