Special Singing Course in Rota Spain



  I am thrilled to be able to offer a special intensive course in Spain this September and am inviting a VERY few special students and I would be thrilled if you were able to take part  

Sanlúcar – Bodegas de Barbadillo - Night of Culture


Concert on 29 of September, 2017

  I hope you will take this opportunity to prepare your repertoire for the upcoming audition season and/or upcoming competition in an intensive manner in a very pleasant spot in Southern Spain. At the end of the course we have the honor of singing a concert in Sanlucar de la Barameda’s Festival. So you wlll be also able to try out your new work in front of an appreciative audience.
This course is meant to be a working holiday. We will work hard and will be living in a beautiful place. I hope it will be a positive learning process and fun for us all. Margaret Singer is a wonderful, sensitive pianist and a wonderful, insightful vocal coach and it is a pleasure and a joy to know her and work with her.
The apartments are in a beautiful touristic area, with huge swimming pool, directly on the golf course and a few walking minutes to the ocean. I have two bicycles, which you are welcome to borrow, you can explore the area by bike or else take long walks on the beach. Food is inexpensive there, so your expenses are low. The area is gorgeous. There are plenty of places to eat walking distance from the apartment and we have 2 good shopping centers with a grocery store, also walking distance. Weather at this time of year is comfortable, warm and usually sunny. Temperatures during the day averaging around 18° to 23°. So you can still go swimming and sun yourself on the beaches. There is a wellness spa in the hotel across the road where you can book massages, etc.
I want you to use this opportunity to your own advantage and work on any material you need to polish up and present to an appreciative public.
This is an honor to be invited to sing at this festival. It is a very important date for this city, the southern Spanish are very warm people and you will be treated very well by the mayor’s office
