Developing a Vocal Style with Colleen Eccleston

Are you locked in to one vocal approach when you write songs? Would you like to expand your singing style? Through vocal techniques that can be used to expand your range, and an analysis of language from a singer's perspective, Colleen will open up vocal possibilities to writers so that they can take advantage vocally of their lyrics, and explore emotional connection to give greater dimension to their songs.

All About the Beatles with Colleen Eccleston

The Beatles are the stuff of legend both in the timing of their appearance on the planet as well as their ability to write and perform songs that have influenced every musician since. It is fascinating to look into their journey from bombed out Liverpool to their meteoric rise to fame. By discussing their wicked sense of humour, one of the best soundtracks you will ever hear, and the guidance of one of the best producers and managers, this clinic will take you through their story and leave you loving them even more.
