The Gospel Influence
Ken Burton’s workshop combine education, inspiration and entertainment. The workshop will commence with a series of what he calls ‘rapid fire’ songs – short, infectious pieces to get everyone enthused – ranging from African pieces to gospel songs. These are followed by larger scale gospel or gospel influenced pieces ranging from enthusiastic songs with opportunities to improvise, to songs with more complex harmonies – both a cappella and accompanied. Participants will leave with a few more tools relating to accessing vocal range, pitting heart and finding meaning in songs, exploring vocal colours. The workshops are flexible and organic enough to adapt to the needs of the participants, regardless of experience.
