Create sound for the soul
Vox Voices is a course of relaxed and playful vocal workshops, with body percussion, movement and uplifting world, folk and jazz melodies learnt by ear. Held in a new, inspiring location each term, Vox Voices is about the joy of making a collective sound, swopping from harmony to harmony and exploring improvisatory ideas together. Vox Voices is for all singers and would-be singers, regardless of experience or talent!
Workshops are run by Tara Franks, each term joined by a guest connected artist to host one session. Singers can turn up and pay on the door for single sessions (spaces allowing) or book in advance on to the full course for a discounted rate.
When and where?
Vox Voices runs in nine-week courses during term time on Tuesday evenings (8 - 9:15pm).
The spring term will be held in neighbourhood venue The Green Room N16.
Sign up for the whole season at a discount price or drop in any week and pay on the door.

“I have found it liberating to learn everything by ear…and then the skills to allow us to swap effortlessly between... It's the highlight of my week" Amy
“I can't tell you how uplifting and magical a thing it is” Kate
"... No matter how big or small the group is, the way we learn never fails to produce a beautiful and extremely satisfying sound almost immediately. Tara's emphasis on every choir member learning melody and all the harmonies creates an extremely empathetic group, which listens intently to the overall sound much more than any other choir I have experienced..."

More about the songs...
Tara carefully selects and arranges part songs that everyone can learn, whatever level of singer you are. Some of the songs are jazz arrangements she has dug up from her childhood, or great soul tunes she arranges especially for the mixed voices of Vox Voices, many are folk songs from around the world learnt from fellow musicians or on travels.
