House of Song, Geelong presents:
Professional Development, 'Build Your Voice' Workshops with Marcia Howard. March 28th, 2019 6.30-8.30 pm.
I will be running the workshops every fourth Thursday of the month until November 2019, 6.30- 8.30 pm. Bookings can be made for these sessions on Thursdays during the year at the Eventbrite link.
This session is suitable for audience members, singers with no prior experience including classroom teachers, public speakers, actors, music educators, students and anyone who relies on their voice professionally. Participants will receive a certificate verifying completion and attendance of the training workshop. Completing the course teachers will contribute two hours of PD addressing the standards as listed from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher registration in Victoria. Teachers who complete the modules / professional development will understand that this learning will assist in addressing the following Australian Professional Standards for Teachers: 2.1 3.2. 3.6 2.1 2.4 3.5 4.1 6.3 6.4 7.4
The Feb 28th PD, Build Your Voice Workshop went really well at House of Song, Belmont, Geelong. The attendees really enjoyed the session and said they learned a lot from it and received their own individual House of Song PD certificate. We had teachers and public speakers and singers at the PD. A great mix!
"In my 5 years as Casting & Music Producer on The Voice Australia, I've come across thousands of Australian singers, and Marcia Howard is among the finest of them all. Her musicality, connection and depth of experience are beyond comparison. It was an absolute pleasure and delight to be able to meet, work with and learn from Marcia during her time on The Voice Season 5."
Rachel Rigg, Music Producer, The Voice, Season 5, 2016.
"Marcia's voice workshop was great. Pre-service teachers need to learn to use and care for one of their most important teaching tools – their voice. The Victorian Department of Education and Training recognises that voice care is essential to teachers’ professional and personal health and wellbeing. However, voice projection and protection is sometimes a neglected aspect of teachers’ professional learning. This workshop enables pre-service teachers to practise using their voice in different ways, understand how the voice works and how to care for it and learn how to use the voice and non-verbal communication to develop a safe and supportive learning environment (AITSL Standard 4). It does this in a fun and interactive way."
Rebecca Cairns, Deakin University, MALT Education Lecturer.
A busy festival season has begun with my band playing my songs at The Port Fairy Festival this weekend where I will be joining American 70's artist Melanie on stage. The Blue Mountains Festival in Sydney is the weekend after and then I play the Yackandandah Festival the weekend after with special guest, Pete Denahy.
I will be doing a preview of my new one-woman show, House of Song at a private house concert in Torquay on April 27th and then in Fyansford, at the Door Gallery Geelong in May, so I will keep you posted about that and my website has details:http://www.marciahoward.com.au/tour-dates.htm
