Zulu Accent and Dialect Coaching
(For Choirs, Ensembles, Auditions, Competitions, Concerts, Theatres and Films)
Songs have been an essential part of our language experience since time began and used in conjunction with spoken language, can be a most powerful tool. No need to look any further than Shakespeare!
Music can immensely enhance multicultural understanding particularly in an age of cosmopolitan diversity. Our courses assist significantly in bringing together and teaching one another about peoples’ of different race, religion and culture with the objective of significantly increasing knowledge of other cultures.
Music is therefore a means for teaching languages, especially to children; it can also be used as an ‘icebreaker’ in our modern society.
Considerations for selecting appropriate music for learners and experts:We can offer a multitude of different types of songs, ranging from nursery rhymes to contemporary pop songs, all being easily comprehensible by all ages.
We select the songs in line with what you sing in a choir and - why not select a new one to introduce to them.
Lessons are implemented appropriately and if required I can be present to assist during choir practices.
After tuition, students have the opportunity to sing in public with their choice of song - goodbye to ‘embarrassing’ karaoke!
