Workshops – Dan Cooper | Vocal Coach & Choir Leader

Singing should be for everybody, regardless of ability or experience. That’s what these day-long group singing workshops are all about. They’re standalone, one-off sessions, with a theme.

These workshops start with introductions and a brief ice-breaker activity before getting stuck in learning a few songs in harmony based on a specific theme. Not only is it a great way to spend a day but it’s also an amazing opportunity to socialise and mix with other like-minded people. We have lots of fun too. We spend a little time in the afternoon recording the songs so that you can take home an mp3 of the group singing. The workshops are accessible to anybody over the age of 18. To book your space on the next themed workshop, click below.

I had not been taught by Dan before and was really nervous about the workshop. My tummy was churning all the way there. Absolutely no need! It was relaxed and fun and Dan taught in a very comfortable way. Everyone there was really friendly and I met some amazing people with lovely voices. Song & laughter – how good does life get?

I attended the Grease workshop and had ‘the best’ day. It really was a great experience and can totally recommend. We certainly made a great sound at the end of the day, all thanks to Dan’s expert instruction. On the day I made new friends, we sang loads, stopped for lunch, and performed the whole repertoire at the end of the day. The day whizzed by. Time really does fly when you are having fun! If you are undecided about whether one of these workshops are for you, I would not hesitate, come try it, and do it.

Dan’s Grease workshop was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. The environment Dan created was hugely uplifting and one in which you could sing and express yourself freely. Learning the harmonies of the classic songs was both challenging and so much fun; the arrangements were unique, and I think the whole group felt a sense of achievement by the end of the session. It was a perfect way to spend a Sunday!

One-off Sessions

If you’re a teacher at a school, maybe you run your own choir or just want a session for your team at work. Whatever you’re looking for, Dan can provide one off sessions through one of his organisations; SingForce or Sound Pop Academy. These stand alone sessions are great for inspiring, entertaining and getting the most out of the participants. The sessions can be tailored to suit your requirements but generally consist of ice-breaker activities, vocal warm ups and then song learning. These sessions are great for boosting morale, having fun and for inspiring all sorts of singers.

We had a great evening learning about the physicality of voice coaching but also practicing techniques together as a group of swimming teachers. Dan was able to bring everyone together to perform a song at the end as a choir – we couldn’t believe how good we sounded! We’ve since been able to use his techniques in the water and I’m really pleased with both the improved voice protection but also sound quality that has been noticed by my team. Thanks Dan!

I will definitely be using some of the skills Dan taught us in our school choir now!
