Our Sing from the Heart singing retreat holidays in France are run by Peter Evans - who had over 25 years experience as a singing teacher and vocal coach in the South East of England before moving to the beautiful Limousin region of France. Peter was taught by renowned vocal coach and authority on the voice Tona de Brett.
Find your voice and sing from the heart
Our singing retreat holidays in France focus on positive group learning and interaction. Our breaks are a great opportunity to meet new people whilst sharing a fun and creative activity. Many lifelong friendships have been formed on our singing workshops and holidays throughout the years.
As well as teaching good vocal and performance techniques Peter also works with the emotional blocks, fears & negative voices people can have that stop them from singing wholeheartedly & fully, or even perhaps from singing at all. So if you haven't sung since school or only sing in the shower don't let that stop you. This is the week for you too!
In recent years we have sung songs by Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Lou Reed, Coldplay, Adele and Tracy Chapman to name but a few, as well as songs from the traditional and world music repertoire. Group song suggestions are always welcomed too.
We will wake up to the sound of the birds in the many trees around the house singing their little hearts out, before breakfasting & then heading off to our large 'workshop barn' to sing our own hearts out for 2 hours.
Afternoons are spent on individual vocal sessions with Peter & doing whatever else you fancy. Enjoy a taste of French life – with good food, wine & beautiful walks in the Limousin countryside straight from our front door.
Do as much or as little as you would like; from sunbathing & swimming on one of the beaches at Lac De Vassiviere, to mountain/road cycling, horse riding, art galleries, live music and regular local food and craft markets, there is much to discover and explore in your free time in the Limousin.
Our end of week performance
The group songs we have learnt during the week, (plus individual pieces from any students who are drawn to doing one), are showcased in the Performance Night Show at the end of the week, where a friendly gathering of Peter's local students & our lovely neighbours will make up our guest audience. A great chance to share what you have been working on during the week.. An informal and fun evening of singing with a supportive and appreciative audience. A chance to face your fears and sing a solo song if you would like too or just enjoy joyful singing in a group.
Group singing has been scientifically proven to lower stress, relieve anxiety and elevate endorphins. Singing is joyful and benefits our health and wellbeing too. Singing changes your brain. Read more about why you should sing - the joys and benefits.
