Harmony: The Joyous Science Behind Close Part Singing

Led by Rob Castell

Singing with a choir can be tremendously rewarding, mainly because you get to try out all those magical harmonies! But it can be daunting and it takes some practice. There's also an incredible alchemy that takes place when we bring different frequencies together and create evocative patterns with our voices. So how does it all work? And how can we get better at making it happen? Norden Farm Community Choir leader Rob Castell has been a professional arranger, musical director and singer for almost 20 years. Join him for an exploration of vocal harmony with some basics for beginners and a fun journey through the science of sound.

Acoustic Guitar - Absolute Beginners

Led by Richard Lee.

Always wanted to learn guitar but never got around to it? Want to trade your air guitar skills for real guitar skills? It is never too late to learn. Learn guitar right from the very beginning. This is a foundation course for those with little to no experience of playing guitar. You will learn how to hold a guitar and to make the right noises out of it. The aim of these lessons is to get you playing your first song within 4 weeks of lessons, as no-one takes up guitar to strum random chords, it’s all about the songs.

If you are returning to guitar having not played for some time and can barely remember chords this is a great way of getting back into the swing of things.

Intermediate Yoga

Led by Julie Potter

This class is suited to those who have been practising for at least 6. My intention for this class is to move our practise forward, explore different avenues and approaches to the traditional postures. We will be aiming to be going deeper into ‘awareness’ and ‘noticing’.

The yoga I teach is an evolution of over 20 years of practice and study, perhaps moving away from ‘external’ evaluation of the postures and moving towards an ‘internal’ sense of the postures, moving away from the more used traditional approach of systemised yoga to a more experiential approach. Whilst looking at traditional Hatha Yoga postures and pranayamas, I will be encouraging fun and freedom within the traditional structure, whilst taking into our awareness fundamental anatomical and functional aspects required by our bodies for maximum wellbeing benefits.

Fri 13 Jan - 10 Feb, Fri 17 Feb - 17 Mar & Fri 24 Mar - 28 Apr, exc 7 Apr
£10 per session | or £35 per 5 week course
