Big Band Singing Summer School  - Benslow Music Trust
Monday 24th - Saturday 29th July 2017

A rare and exciting opportunity to sing with a big band - provided by the course running alongside - under the guidance of big band singers Anton Browne and Jenny Howe.

A big band song will be allocated at the start of the course; after your voice has been assessed. A link will be given to download your track in MP3 format to your phone or other Wi-Fi equipped device - they could also be transferred from my laptop - some sort of recorder will be useful. If you have contemporary singing experience this is an ideal course.
