BHB presents: Sing-Song Showtime

What is Sing-Song Showtime?
Sing Song Show-time is an uplifting one-day master-class in singing, performance, and courage, with ARIA Award Winning musician Clare Bowditch.

How Does It Work?
In the morning, Clare plies you with tea and cake and teaches you everything she knows about singing, performing, and the cultivation of internal courage.

In the afternoon, you and Clare and your new choir get dressed up and put on a live show in front of an audience of your most supportive friends and family (their entry is included as part of your ticket).

Who Is This For?
The event is designed both for beginners (especially those who doubt their ability to sing or perform in public), and for professionals who want to deepen their ability to connect with audiences and share their voices in a bigger way.

Think one-part “School of Rock”, one-part “The Artists Way”, one-part ninja training, one part heroes-journey, and one part best-friend’s club. It can be for you, or it can be for a friend, colleague or loved one.

In short, it’s for anyone who doesn’t want to die with their music inside them.

Sounds Ambitious. How Do You Know This Will Work?
Because Clare’s done it before. In fact, Clare has been teaching rooms of strangers to sing together in only minutes for over thirteen years, ever since she took “Community Singing Leadership Training” with Faye White here in Victoria, Australia. Since then, she’s had the joy of teaching whole Opera Houses and stadiums of people how to sing songs together in only minutes (as any one who saw her supporting Leonard Cohen in 2010 can attest). The last Sing-Song Showtime was a stunning, sold-out, joyful success. We hope the same will be true for this one.

A Few Words From CB Herself
“What are you going to do with your one wild and precious life?”, so asked poet Mary Oliver.

For years, people have tried to tell me that they can’t sing. In supermarkets, after shows, strangers have told me again and again, “I wish I could sing”.

And I tell them the truth. If you can talk, you can sing. As a child, in fact, that’s how you taught yourself to talk: through singing songs, mimicking voices, experimenting with the sounds that came out of your mouth.

As children, performing our songs in front of other people was a source of joy, not fear. As adults, many of us forget our ability to sing, and our joy of performing. In doing so, we miss out on something very deep, powerful, joyful; something that connects us to the rest of the human race.

To be clear: it’s not your fault some of you feel this way about singing. Perhaps your feelings were prompted by a thoughtless comment from a teacher or family-member, or perhaps it’s your in-born perfectionism that did it: your “not good enough” stories, your fear of being publicly shamed.

Whatever the cause, the longing remains: something in us still wants to sing. I know this because I lived it. Although I always loved singing, in my early career I went through years of truly crippling performance anxiety: so much so, I suspected I would be best giving up my dream of being a singer.

I thought, in fact, that my fear was a sign: a sign that I wasn’t good enough, that I wasn’t meant to be on stage, that I didn’t have what it takes. One day, it occurred to me that my fear of singing in public was really just a metaphor for my larger fears in life: the fear that if I showed you who I was, if I spoke my truth, if I made myself vulnerable, I would be criticized. Learning to share my voice with the world turned out to be my heroes journey.

Places are very limited, and the last one sold-out very quickly.
