Online Sessions with Maureen
I am here for you for your continued work or to help you explore and play! As with many, I am among those losing work during the upcoming months. This means I have more time to offer online sessions for you. Yes, you! And you can do this in the comfort of your own home.
Book and enjoy your sessions now – but pay later, WAY later. I will accept payments via e-transfer any time for the rest of 2020. Email maureenbattsoprano (at) gmail (dot) com for more details!
Sign up for any of the following:
Singing lessons (all genres, all ages, all levels) – Online singing lessons. Work technique, talk repertoire, talk technique, develop practice plans, hone storytelling, explore colours.
Grant writing consultation – Let’s talk grants! There are a bunch of deadlines coming up – get in touch for some extra help, or help getting started! Your best bet is to meet with your program officers, always. And I do not work for any of the granting agencies. But I do have a lot of experience writing (and getting) grants. I am happy to read drafts, help direct you to the right granting/investment body, or just give you a basic overview of how grants work!
Lyric diction – French, Spanish, Italian, German, English. Extra materials needed: a copy of your texts and songs.
Voice, breath, body work – This type of work is available for singers and non singers! It can be as simple as wanting to speak more freely for your newly-found longer hours of daily voice use, or as specific as working on texts/scripts. Optional additional materials needed: yoga mat/aerobic ball depending on the type of work you want to do.
Play – This will include vocal improv games and singing a little outside of the box. Like traditional singing lessons, this is open to any level of singer Unlike traditional singing lessons, it has no specified repertoire or genre. It’s all about exploring your instrument and having fun while sound making.
Materials needed for online sessions:
-device such as a phone, tablet, or computer
-good wifi connection
-separate device if playing accompaniment tracks in voice lessons
-area to work with minimal external noise/distractions
-FaceTime, Zoom, or similar platform (we’ll determine this together and use the same platform)
Make-up – One-on-one or small group make-up sessions. This will take place in the form of a tutorial, but tailored to you and your current products. Whether you want to learn a smokey eye, a super glam look, or want to find a minimalistic routine, I’m here for you! Make-up is a passion of mine and I’d love to share some of that joy with you while helping you with your goals (even or especially if it’s just for playing around).
Voice and Movement Play with Alison Taylor and Maureen Batt
Have you been sitting for hours a day recently? (Yes, yes I have.) Is your body a bit heavy and your voice a bit stuck? (Yes, it’s like you’re reading my mind!) Come and play with us!
In this light and playful 60min session, you will get a taste of the voice and movement integration work that Maureen and I have been co-creating over the past several years. There will be a short physical warmup, followed by some sensory and listening explorations. Next we will play some voice and sound-making games and create a beautiful, joyful, messy, and cacophonous ruckus together.
