book a workshop for your group

Calendar Chris runs singing workshops open to all and is able to create beautiful harmonies with any group of people in a short space of time. No experience is necessary to join in these workshops, and all songs are taught by ear.

"An excellent day of hard, rewarding work proving that 50 strangers can blend very well indeed in close harmony."

A range of workshops on specific themes is available, but Chris can also design a workshop for your specific interests. He can work with groups from 10 to 100 and everything in between.

Email Chris to enquire about booking him to run a singing workshop for you.

Chris's special interest is in World Music, in particular Eastern European and African song, but he also runs gospel, sacred songs and British folk workshops amongst others.

Chris also offers several specialist workshops for more experienced singers, and can design a workshop specially for your group. His workshops regularly attract a minimum of 40 people wherever they are run. He is a charismatic workshop leader with a relaxed style and fine sense of humour.

Chris is available to work anywhere in the UK (and beyond!) and is open to booking inquiries at least six months in advance. He can assist with publicity ideas and copy. He is also available for shorter workshops, but they cannot be too far from Ipswich where he is based.

Please note that Chris does not work with groups of under 16s.

The usual fee for a one-day workshop (six hours, including a one-hour lunch break) is £450 plus travel expenses, although there is often scope for negotiation depending on your circumstances. For any venues more than a two-hour drive from Ipswich, overnight accommodation will need to be provided. For shorter workshops fees start at around £80 per hour for up to two hours, to around £200 for half a day (2.5 hours).

See the list of forthcoming workshops for current dates and details.
