Singing: The key to a long life

Brian Eno

“ I believe that singing is the key to long life, a good figure, a stable temperament, increased intelligence, new friends, super self-confidence, heightened sexual attractiveness, and a better sense of humor. ”

“ I believe in singing to such an extent that if I were asked to redesign the British educational system, I would start by insisting that group singing become a central part of the daily routine. ”

Singing on Eigg 2016

SPACES STILL AVAILABLE

Saturday 21 May — Friday 27 May 2016
Glebe Barn Hostel, Isle of Eigg, Scotland
Fully catered 7-day singing workshop/holiday on a wonderful Hebridean Island

This week in May 2016 will be the 10th year of this singing holiday on the wonderful Hebridean Island of Eigg, one of the Small Isles; a week of singing, walking, laughter, merriment and, of course, delicious fully-catered food.

This week is open to singers of all levels, and I will suit the repertoire to the ability of the group. Teaching will be mostly by ear so you do not have to read music.

I use music in many different settings to create community, to foster harmony, to bring people together, and above all I encourage people to use music as a tool of empowerment and self-discovery.
