Voice workshop with Moya Simpson

One of these workshops is Play With Your Voice, led by Moya Simpson.
Rediscover your voice in an atmosphere that is entertaining, funny and full of joy. Starting with physical and vocal warm-ups, Moya will lead you into learning short chants, calls and songs from a variety of cultures, where singing is as natural as talking. Moya encourages singing together to create an uplifting and exuberant atmosphere and believes singing is a human right.
