Nancy Salwen, a music teacher based in Keene, N.H., will introduce her new book, "The Fear of Singing Breakthrough Program: Learn to Sing Even if You think You Can't Carry a Tune!" and lead a mini-workshop at the Keene Public Library on Saturday, February 4, 2017 at 1 p.m. The Keene Public Library is located at 60 Winter St.
Many people who think they can’t sing have had some kind of experience that shut them down (a criticism at an early age, a sense that someone else was the “the singer” in the family, an insensitive music teacher!) It isn't too late. Everyone deserves to sing. This fun and supportive group experience led by Nancy Salwen is a good way to begin. Teens and adults will play games with singing and rhythm, do some toning and rounds as a way of exploring harmony, move and stretch and explore different vocal placements and styles, and sing simple, accessible songs from different cultures to experience how these vocal styles can be used in a new context. "The Fear of Singing" is specifically geared toward "non-singers" who wish they could sing, as well as anyone who would like to feel more comfortable and freer using their voice.
The Friends of the Keene Public Library sponsor this program. All library programs are free and open to the public. Please call the library at 603-352-0157 for more information about public programs.
