Holiday Tutor: Faith Watson
Faith has been running Harmony Singing workshops since the late 1980s and is an original member of the Natural Voice Network. Working under the company name: Singing for Larks, Faith runs 2 regular groups: Manchester Larks and Shylarks, as well as a programme of one-off days and residentials around the UK. She also delivers tailor-made workshops and training for social, health, educational and corporate organisations, as well as for choirs, and theatre groups. Faith worked with the special interest holiday company, Authentic Adventures for 10 years, delivering singing holidays, including one in Taroudant in 2009, which included a wonderful evening hosted by La Maison Anglaise.
Faith always brings a wonderful variety of songs to her workshops, including some of her own original songs and arrangements, and she is particularly known for her love of crunchy jazz harmonies. She is passionate about making her workshops accessible to everyone so she tailors her choice of songs to suit the group on each holiday. There are always some short, simple songs, offering a quick reward, and some ‘meatier’ songs that take a bit longer to learn, giving those who want it an opportunity to stretch themselves and giving the whole group a tremendous sense of satisfaction when it all comes together.
Faith is a member of the acapella group “The Lovenotes”.
At the heart of all Faith’s work there remains a love of acapella singing and the belief that everyone, no matter what their level of skill, confidence, or experience, can enjoy the thrill of singing in harmony.
