In Good Voice - Jenny Goodman Jenny Goodman - In Good Voice

Jenny Goodman is one of the most experienced community singing leaders in the UK. Since 1992 she has been running community choirs, workshops and singing projects across the UK and internationally. Jenny is committed to the principle that singing is a human birthright - it is part of being human to sing and vocalise. She also believes that singing is a powerful tool for bringing people together and building community. Jenny specialises in acapella harmony singing for all drawing on oral singing traditions from across the world as well as contemporary and popular songs and her own material. Jenny teaches orally - all songs are taught by ear - ensuring that her groups and workshops are genuinely open to all. She is also an experienced voice specialist and believes that the body and voice are intergal to each other so her work always includes careful warm ups. Jenny draws on her 30 years experience as a community and group worker to inform her singing work and has worked in a wide range of community settings and with a wide range of groups including hospitals, prisons, arts centres, mental health settings, primary schools, nurseries, universities, local festivals, women's groups, older people's groups, black and minority ethnic groups etc. Jenny currently runs acapella performance group Far Cry at Lawrence Batley Theatre and a regular daytime singing group for all in Honley (Harmony@Hope Bank) plus many other workshops and projects. Jenny is a founder member of The Natural Voice Practitioners Network and has completed training with Frankie Armstrong, Guildhall School of Music and Central School of Drama and holds a Post-graduate Certificate in Community Education. In addition to her teaching Jenny performs with acapella duoThe Blameless Hussies and Jenny and the Good Men roots/acoustic quartet. You can check Jenny out on Facebook at Jenny Goodman: In Good Voice for her teaching work, Jenny and the Good Men and Blameless Hussies for her performing.
