Vocal workshops

1990s-present. Wide variety of vocal workshops, including those offered through the Lotus World Music Festival (Moira SmileyTim EriksenAsia Pacific Performers Exchange, etc) and the National Women’s Music Festival (Kay Gardner, Margot Adler, Ysaye M. Barnwell). In 2005, I attended a lovely women’s retreat/singing workshop with Sue and Marytha of Libana, with a follow-up Balkan singing workshop they created specifically for Kaia.

I always take a handheld digital recorder with me to workshops to capture cool songs, teaching tips, or ideas that come to me mid-stream. Workshops are a fantastic way to learn a large number of songs in a low-pressure environment. For me, they inevitably lead to hours of Web surfing (especially YouTube and Wikipedia) to find out ever more about the topic.
