Calling all singers, teachers, lecturers, counsellors, sales people, telemarketers and entertainers.

You can join Brian Martin and Imogen Wolf at Coolum for a weekend of voice training workshops.

With more than 20 years of experience in music and voice, Brian has spent the majority of his musical career helping people find their voice through lectures, seminars and workshops.

Imogen has been entertaining audiences with her smooth, dynamic vocals for seven years. She has performed with various bands including chick rock outfit Frock, funk band Fungoo, three-piece JIP, duo Bluetone and a cappella quartet Velvet Groove, but is now focussing on solo performances. She is also assistant director at the Con in Lismore and musical director of a cappella choir Choir, Baby in Bangalow.

Brian, a trained Neuro- Linguistic Programming Practitioner (NLP), together with Imogen, winner of the Dolphin Award for Best Female Vocal in 2005, is holding the voice training this weekend at the Uniting Church Hall, Coolum Beach. Aside from building confidence in workshop participants, Brian and Imogen will also show them how to develop vocal power and projection.

Through the workshop participants will also increase their range and flexibility, clarity, volume, depth, durability and rapport. The other areas which will be looked at include voice maintenance, pitch, rhythm and posture.

Participants of the highly anticipated workshop will also learn techniques such as blending, tone, and harmony using music of ethnic cultures and other contemporary influences.

To be part of this fun weekend, please contact Fiona for more information on 31033074 or email
