About the Workshop

The Workshop, with a limited number of participants, led by the extraordinary british vocal coach COLIN VASSELL, is for those who want to approach or improve vocal technique for gospel genre. Divided into 5 sessions, it provides an educational approach based on training, as is the tradition of the best British and American Gospel Vocal Coaches.

At the conclusion of the training course, directed by the same Colin Vassell during the Novara Gospel Festival, the participants will have the opportunity to concretize and appreciate what they have learned, by exhibiting a few songs on the second concert evenings of the festival in october. A unique and unforgettable experience ... a mix of quality, energy and exiting moments!!!

The programming of the workshops on separate/single whole day sessions spread through between April and October is unique in Italy and is the result of experience gained from previous editions. Participants in this way have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of vocal techniques typical of black music, assimilating concepts and best songs and experimenting on how to approach the stage and improve harmony among the participants, paying particular attention to the qualitative aspect of the vocal.

After each training, audio materials specially recorded during the sessions will be made available, to facilitate review and solidification of what has been learned whenever needed.
