Music and singing are pivotal in the course of human evolution. Since its emergence, singing has created social bonds between groups of limitless size. And through the experience of shared song, the production of endorphins can lead to greater mental health.


This workshop is led by professional operatic tenor and choral veteran, Chris Elliott, who will be accompanied by a classical pianist.


Chris will lead us through a transformative musical experience, guiding us along a journey of self-discovery, allowing us to find our own voice or to find a different voice within ourselves. We will be encouraged to express ourselves in new and exciting ways.


Families and children will gain a greater understanding of how we express ourselves vocally and how to promote wellbeing.


The workshop includes looking at language acquisition and differentiation, including aspects of foreign languages. Part of this overall musical journey will include mindfulness techniques.


Chris first came to Melbourne in 2016, when Independent Schools Victoria brought to schools the Art of Listening from the Edinburgh International Festival.


He made a big impact, and is now returning with his own program for the Arts Learning Festival.
