GROUP MUSIC WORKSHOP 1: “Make Noise Workshop” with ELANA STONE

Monday 21 June: 3.00pm – 5.00pm

Join ARIA Award-winning artist Elana Stone in a FREE vocal workshop. Breathe! Get moving with rhythm, take sound bath, improvise and freestyle as you learn some unforgettable tricks of the trade in this special Make Music Day 2021 event @ AIM Sydney. You don’t need to read music, just bring yourself, your willingness to step forward, and your voice! The Make Noise Workshop runs for 90 minutes with refreshments served after. Places are limited to 30 and registration is essential.

Singer/songwriter Elana Stone is an ARIA Award-winning vocalist whose style combines instrumental invention with eccentricity, and inclines to write pop that is by turns exultant or introspective. If Ella Fitzgerald met Dirty Projectors and Joni Mitchell, you’d have an idea of how Elana might sound, but you’d be missing the country and folk influences too!
