From Solo to Duo Performance Workshop- How to?

April 20 @ 12:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Are you looking to collaborate with another and just don’t know how?

Do you already have a singer or another musician and you want to get better at performing together?

Would you like to learn how to write your own songs together?


This workshop will specifically work on taking your performance from solo to duo. In less than 6 HOURS you will get the opportunity to learn how to collaborate in the best possible way with another, develop a new performance style together, write a song together and most importantly find ease and confidence in performing together. Using our Simply Sing method we will explore:

  • How to collaborate with another singer/ performer and find your duo?
  • Physical and Vocal Awareness exercises to enhance your voice
  • Solo Singing Natural Confidence Techniques
  • Singing & Performance Improvisation
  • Performance style and technique
  • Songwriting
  • Vocal Mindfulness

…and lots more tricks to get you fully immersed in enhancing your duo performance.

By the end of the workshop, you will have either found yourself a new duo, improved the duo that you already have or know all the ways possible to go find yourself another person to perform with. You will also have written your own song together and have developed a more natural performance style that suits you both.


“If you have heard or read about Simply Sing, please don’t put it off any longer sign up, I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed. After having the courage to sing at the Open Mic Session I felt a bit like when I had climbed Croagh Patrick, what an experience, I was on a high afterward and I even found it hard to get to sleep I was still buzzing hours later. ” ( Participant Nov 2017)
