Some of my most useful websites, and favourite activities. As a singing teacher, I appreciate how important it is to be present in your body, and do healthy activities. So dancing is a wonderful companion to singing.
BC Choral Federation: Information about Vancouver and BC choirs.
ChoralNet: Lots of interesting resources for singers and conductors.
Contra Dancing: Dancing is good for singers, and helps you develop your sense of rhythm. Contra dancing is easy, friendly and fun - a great low-cost community activity where you can go with friends or on your own. Maybe I'll see you there!
Nia: Dance barefoot to diverse and inspiring music - Nia is a transformational movement practice that teaches you to be more JOYFUL, EXPRESSIVE, and ALIVE in your body
Moveable Music School: Lots of lessons for adult players and singers of many types of music: folk, country, roots, blues, vintage rock, swing, jazz, R&B and original songs. In living rooms in Metro Vancouver
Lung Association: Information about perfume, and why I ask singers not to use it in choirs and lessons.
The Mudcat Cafe: A good source of lyrics for folk music.
Sheetmusic Direct.com: Download songs and their music for a small cost.
Northwest Folk Life: - a free festival in Seattle every May.
Vancouver Folk Festival: and of course you know about the Vancouver Folk Festival.
All musical people seem to be happy; it is to them the engrossing pursuit,
almost the only innocent and unpunished passion. - Sydney Smith
