Opera and vocal workshops are offered throughout the year by Gwyneth Lloyd. Her in depth group and individual vocal training is based on the tension-free principles of the Alexander Technique. Gwyneth's extensive experience of not only running and musically directing East Cape Opera Company, but also creating brand new works for opera ensembles, gives her great insight into workshop facilitating from both a technical and creative perspective. if you would like to be involved with east cape opera or if you have a group of singers who would like to work with Gwyneth, please contact us.
Song writing and composition workshops are available through Eliot Lloyd Short when he is resident at Starways. inspiration for musical creations is plentiful while up in the forests and the mountains, but a song writer and composer's task is to channel this creativity into a structure that can be performed and shared with others. the satisfaction of creating your own music from scratch is almost unbeatable and Starways is ideal for facilitating the creative process. Eliot's next residence at starways will be either in March 2019. Please contact us if you'd like to arrange lessons or a workshop.
African Music workshops are available throughout the year from visiting artist Anthony Caplan. Private teaching and workshops are also available from his home in Bathurst.
