Workshops

We offer workshops for the general public as well as for singers and choristers, and music specialists. Workshops are taught by our director with the participation of our singers to support participants. No previous knowledge of chant, Latin, or music notation is required.

Workshops usually last between one and two hours. Longer or more specialised events can be arranged by request, for example for music students or experienced choristers wishing to explore chant in more depth.

Below are some testimonials from a recent workshop given in Dublin in April 2017 under the auspices of Amra.

Thank you so much for the workshop last night. It was really interesting and I enjoyed learning the beautiful chants. My students really enjoyed themselves and I know for sure that the big Tallaght Choral Society group absolutely loved it! It was so accessible to everyone with such a variety of experiences. Thank you for involving me and my singers.

I must say that I found the teaching method used by Dr. Lochner very interesting. The use of the body movements and conducting helped greatly in the learning process. I hope that I can apply these methods when learning chant in my Church Choir.
