The workshop will cover the basics from warming up to relaxing the body in order to open it up and create a safe space for the voice to sing. You will also learn a song to sing using the techniques learnt! Start off on the right foot to get your vocals just right!

There are 15 places for this workshop. Book a place in advance to avoid disappointment. Tickets are £5 (+booking fee). We aim to make our workshops as accessible as possible, so if you would like to come but cannot afford the ticket price, you can reserve a place by emailing firsttimers@diyspaceforlondon.org

Tickets are priced at £5 and available here.

About First Timers Fest
FTF is a season of workshops followed by a two-day festival where every band plays its first show. FTF is about getting new faces and voices in bands, and doing something about the lack of diversity in the make-up of the DIY music community.

As a direct way of addressing the lack of diversity in the make-up of the DIY music community, our workshops centre people who are disabled (visible or non-visible), LGBTQIA+ folk, people of colour, and women. As well, we are here to support people who have never played in a band before // never played the instrument they’ve always wanted to learn before because of their class, race, gender, mental health, etc.

Our 2019 festival will be taking place on May 4th & 5th 2019. Applications from new bands to play are open, to apply please email us at firsttimers@diyspaceforlondon.org
