MIRI’s vocal and songwriting group workshops and one to one sessions offer a nurturing space to build confidence and explore. MIRI has previously run workshops for First Timers Fest, WriterznScribez and LIPS Choir. MIRI is also a facilitator and mentor for many grassroots community organizations and has run music sessions in mental health hospitals; Acute and PICU wards.
MIRI’s ‘Find Your Voice’ group vocal workshop is an opportunity for people to receive guidance and support to find their true voice melodically and holistically as well as practical vocal skills and exercises. This vocal introductory workshop aims to build on confidence and vocal exploration.
“I’ve found the sessions have not only made me feel more confident about my ability to sing but also helped me stand a bit taller and feel more relaxed. MIRI is always friendly and thoughtful and never judgemental.” Pippa – One to One
“The workshop provided a safe environment that helped me to manage my anxiety and feel comfortable enough to try singing with other people. I went from being so anxious about my voice that I nearly didn’t go to the workshop, to feeling empowered and confident enough afterwards to try singing some backing vocals and eventually even some lead vocals with my band.” Ripley (Group Workshop)
“Sessions with MIRI have really transformed the way I relate to my voice, and helped strengthen my mind-body connection as a way to improve my singing. MIRI creates a relaxing, supportive atmosphere that really brings me into presence – I love it!” Janey (One to One)
“MIRI makes music accessible and helps to quieten the insecurities. She helped me drop my self doubt for long enough to reach for what I am really capable of and rediscover my uniqueness… and my fire! Thank you for that experience MIRI. I plan to repeat it several times over.” Deeny (Group Workshop)
