Mozart Singing Workshop

We thought it might be lovely to brighten up an Autumn morning with some Mozart and maybe some Gruber.

In November, we’re off to Salzburg – not only to douse ourselves in Glühwein at the Christmas Markets but also to sing Mozart with soloists and an orchestra from the Mozarteum. We’ll stay in Hallein, a small town just up the river from Salzburg and the birthplace and home of Franz Xaver Gruber, who famously penned (or should I say quilled) the legendary Silent Night. That must have been a eureka moment when he scribbled that down. Maybe he was also on the Glühwein!

Anyway… we thought it would be a double-whammy win-win if we ran a Mozart singing workshop in October with the brilliant Robert Dean. Those who are coming to Salzburg can get a first taster of the music, and those who can’t come, well, they still get to experience a wonderful morning of Mozart and Robert’s expert tuition. Did I tell you he’s one of the most sought-after singing teachers and conductors in the country? With patience and a warm smile, he can pull every ounce of brilliance from your singing, leaving you exhausted and exhilarated in equal measure. He’s like a fluffy Simon Cowell, only without the Botox and the high waistband. He’s brilliant, so don’t miss out.

We’ll be learning Mozart’s Missa Brevis K192 and some gorgeous Gruber. What better way to spend a morning?

Robert Dean

For nine years, Robert sang principal roles with all the major UK opera companies and abroad, eventually retiring from singing in 1987 to concentrate on a freelance conducting and teaching career. He was Scottish Opera’s Head of Music from 1989-1993, during which time he also conducted over 100 performances with the company.

He has also conducted at Grange Park Opera, Holland Park Opera, English Touring Opera, British Youth Opera, Opera Theatre Company, and with orchestras including The Philharmonia, The Royal Scottish Orchestra, The Royal Philharmonic, The BBC Concert Orchestra, City of London Sinfonia and London Mozart Players. He is a regular guest conductor of opera in Canada, where he has returned to conduct every year since 1993.

Robert was the Artistic Director of The Philharmonia Chorus from 1998-2008, collaborating with the most famous maestri of the day, including Sawallisch, Sinopoli, Gatti, Levine, Rattle, Davis, Muti, Gergiev, Mackerras, Maazel, Dutoit and Dohnanyi.

In 2000, he was appointed chorus master for a memorable performance at the BBC Proms of Berlioz’s Grande Messe des Morts conducted by Sir Colin Davis, which involved all the students of the Guildhall School and the Paris Conservatoire.

In addition to his teaching work at the Guildhall School, he has also been a guest vocal coach at the National Opera Studio, Glyndebourne and at the Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagen.

His students have enjoyed great success in the Kathleen Ferrier, Royal Overseas League and Guildhall Gold Medal competitions as well as becoming members of the Jette Parker Scheme at Covent Garden.

These events are always fun and jam packed with singing. Led by the very talented Lizzie Deane you learn 2 amazing arrangements of familiar songs in under 3hours. I have now been to 3 of these workshops - all different, all so enjoyable, and I will be going again!

These sessions are always incredible fun...whatever level of experience you have with singing and choirs. Lizzie has a unique talent for teaching in ways that connect you to the song, music and lyrics, as if you've known it your whole life. The results are quick and I always come away with a smile on my face and a song or two in my heart.

Are you ever stressed by the end of your working week? Then I have just the antidote: a Lizzie Workshop with Singing Holidays. The evening starts with a Lizzie legendary warm up and you can feel any tension slipping away as you try and fail to keep a straight face. You will have so much fun, learning her amazing arrangements of songs from different genres and the blast you get hearing the voices altogether and realising you are part of this wonderful sound, well that's just priceless.

A welcoming group of friendly singers, mostly soprano and altos meeting from a variety of backgrounds. Lizzie Deane leads us with an adept professional style peppered with encouraging humorous observations, I smiled throughout the 3 hour workshop. Lizzie is a gem! TJ John Hilton

This was my first workshop with Singing Nest and I really enjoyed it. We covered "She Used To Be Mine". Lizzie's arrangement was beautiful and she had a really engaging teaching style. The venue worked well and the group was friendly so don't be afraid to go along if you don't know anyone else - it was fine! We sounded lovely, the only thing I would suggest is a faster follow up with a video so that the happy vibes continue post the workshop.

Singing holidays are simply great at what they do.Alex and Temi ensure everything is in place and you’re looking after from the moment you arrive until it’s time to go.The teachers are equally as good and show real enthusiasm.I recently attended an evening singing workshop with Lizzie Deane. It was a nice few hours with just the right amount of madness thrown in to learn ‘She Used to be Mine’ and finally nailing it all.I look forward to the next one!

Once again had the most wonderful time attending a Singing Nest Workshop last Friday April 21st led by the incredibly talented Lizzie Deane; this time we we were singing one of Lizzie’s stunning arrangements this time of “She Used to be Mine” by Sara Bareilles from the hit Musical Waitress. It proved to be challenging, but with an outstanding and charismatic Teacher like Lizzie who has the ability to get the very best out of her students; we soon began to produce some exquisite harmonies. Thank you to Alex Mills for giving us these wonderful opportunities, they really are second to none; you only need to look around the room to see the pure joy on peoples faces to know that these workshops are an incredible success!; can’t wait for the next one!

Who doesn't love to sing?! Lizzie Dean is one of the best you'll hear so when she does a workshop, it's a calender must go! She's not just a great singer and musician, she's also great fun, full of energy, so entertaining and engaging. I cannot recommend a Lizzie Dean workshop more, and the result?....not only a belly of laughs and good night out, but a beautiful musical arrangement of which you are part.

The ideal Friday evening tonic after a hard week - a musical workshop with the amazingly talented Lizzie Deane. Three hours of uplifting, inspiring and inclusive coaching for any level of singer, learning a song or sometimes two in 3 hours, with incredible harmonies arranged by Lizzie herself. Roll on the next one!
