Scared To Sing?

About Scared To Sing?

Women Only

Back by popular demand after last year's fantastically successful workshop. Come and explore your voice in a friendly, safe space. No previous singing experience needed.

Have you ever been told you can't sing? Not good enough for the school choir? Or asked to mime? Unfortunately this is the reality for a huge percentage of adults which has resulted in people believing their whole life that they can't sing or have been too frightened to sing.

This workshop will be a fun way for women who would like to sing to get an opportunity to do this without fear of criticism.

Participants are invited to come and show off their new found voices - or support and enjoy other women sharing their audacious acts - at the open mic immediately after this workshop. The open mic will provide a safe and supportive space to try something new. There will be a small audience of women who have attended other AWF events.
