Vocal Workshops

Even if you don’t sing yourself, you will find these workshops a fascinating insight into the craft of singing and musical interpretation. If you do sing, then this is an unrivalled opportunity to learn from an inspirational and supportive teacher, whose wit and humour ensure that lessons are always fun.

Remember too, that you can learn just as much by watching Paul work with other singers, so these workshops are incredibly good value for money.

Singers should email the name of their song, and if possible images of their music, to vic@armaghbanbridgecraigavon.gov.uk by Friday 20 July.
