Courses and Workshops

Saturday Singing for Wellbeing
Singing for Improved Wellbeing session

As well as my private music lessons, I also offer fun and uplifting group sessions and workshops. I have previously ran workshops in ukulele and community singing sessions at various locations in Norwich including The Garage Norwich, Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library, The Forum and Earlham Library. I also run music courses for Adult Learning which include Guitar for Beginners, Ukulele for Beginners and Singing for Wellbeing. For my sessions I have received wonderful feedback:

“This was a great course. I highly recommend Lisa’s teaching” – comment on the Singing for Wellbeing course.

Reviews for ukulele – “I enjoyed the ukulele course which gave me an overall understanding what is involved in playing the ukulele”

A lovely testimonial from one of the students on my ukulele course:
“I joined the ‘Ukulele for Beginners’ course in April after meeting Lisa through the community singing sessions she led at the Forum. She mentioned the upcoming course and, on my way home that day, I spotted a ukulele in a charity shop window. It was fate.
    I had had a particularly difficult time during lockdown suffering a bereavement, and the course was the boost I needed. The ukulele is by nature, a happy instrument and every time I play it, my mood is lifted.
    The course gave me a focus and provided a challenge, especially important now that I’m retired. I enjoyed each session for the social interaction with others, much needed after the feeling of isolation so many of us have experienced through the pandemic. 
    Lisa is a great teacher, talented, knowledgeable, patient and understanding with an enthusiasm that is both infectious and life-affirming.
    Her lessons are well structured and fun. We learnt to play well known, popular songs from the very simple in week one to the more complicated as we progressed through the course. Lisa made sure we revisited the songs we’d learned to play to build confidence, whilst introducing a new song and chords each week. We were encouraged to practise between sessions and I feel I made good progress considering that I truly was an absolute beginner.
    I would thoroughly recommend joining the course in September. I found my experience of Lisa’s ukulele course to be enjoyable and rewarding. It gave me a sense of achievement, as well benefitting my mental well-being through the uplifting effect of music and song in the company of others.” Helen Last, 2022

Also a testimonial for Guitar for Beginners -“thanks for the recent introduction to guitar course, I learned a lot and it has got me back into practising and provided learning materials to keep my studies going. Your friendly and positive approach to teaching made the lessons fun, and it was nice to learn in a group environment.”
