For most of us, singing doesn't feel natural.
Unless you're hidden away in the comfort of your own car, or belting out 80s tunes in a karaoke bar, singing is very nerve wracking. And so, the fear of humiliation and embarrassment keeps our mouths shut. So, what shall we do about singing?
Joining me this week is director of Pub Choir, Astrid Jorgensen. Pub Choir has become a monthly ritual for many in Brisbane - where Astrid teaches average singers like you and me a three-part harmony, which is sung before the end of the night with voices a thousand strong. It's a really cool idea that encourages everyone to sing loudly and proudly. Astrid shares the importance of using the instrument that we all have inside of us - our voices.
You can find Astrid on Instagram and Twitter, and more information about Pub Choir is at pubchoir.com.au.
Pub Choir is also coming to Sydney for a special show at the Metro Theatre on Monday 20th April. Get tickets here.
