Sound and Song — Term 1
Sound and Song Sessions
Intimate small group singing sessions, allowing students to connect to song and sound in an environment that nurtures exploration, fun and self expression. The ethos of these classes is underpinned with notion that we all can sing we just have to allow ourselves to breath, be present and welcome the moment.
Song and Sound sessions will focus on the simple joy of singing together in unison, harmony, rounds and vocal percussion. Songs will be chosen by individuals in the group, or the group as a whole.
WHEN: Wednesdays, 7 February – 28 March, 6.30pm – 8.30pm
VENUE: FCAC Basement Theatre
COST: $250 per term (8 sessions)
About FCAC Tutor: Jacinta Percy
Jacinta’s love affair with the voice, sound and music began as a wee babe, with Richard Clayderman being the only medicine that would lull her to sleep. It was an inevitable journey with a piano playing songstress for a grandmother and a great great aunt, dubbed “Queen of the Irish Song”, in her family lineage.
Her deep love and passion for voice, sound and music has led her over the past 14 years to work with profound teachers in Australia, UK and India, criss crossing genres from Classical to Jazz, Folk to Improvisation, Dhrupad to Carnatic.
Her deep knowledge of her own voice, her open heart and listening ear, allows her to facilitate with a gentle grace that allows others to uncover what they are seeking.
Her belief that we all need to sing, sing with courage, sing with joy, sing to mama earth, uncover our greatness and shine forth our potential into the world is what inspires her to share her love and passion too all.
