Helena Softley workshop
Helena’s workshops are informal and great fun! Her relaxed style of teaching is easy to follow. And there’s no need to read music as all songs are taught by ear. A professional singer/songwriter all her life, she covers all styles of music in the workshops; from Folk and Blues, Rock and Gospel, to pop songs you know and love. COME AND JOIN THE FUN!
Quotes from participants - “Helena can get anyone to sing” “The best time I've had in ages!”
