GOALS/ PLANS.

Training/ workshop CE Mafoluku Group church in raising their choirs.

The CE Mafoluku training of the Choir started in January with 6 facilitators and 2 sessions.

The LMAM missions’ team began series of prayer and planning with the choir heads from the 4th of January 2016. This prayer and planning meetings were held 4 times a week in lieu of the training program that started on the 11th of January and ended on the 12th of January

We had 101 in attendance on the 11th and 137 in attendance on the second day.

Facilitators were; Bro Isaiah Samson, Bro Obi Shine, Bro Sam Jamz, and Bro Protek

After the training, there has been a remarkable improvement in their level of musical confidence as regards their expression and communication of music.

Sent monitoring units to continuously ensure that all that has been learnt is being utilized.

Followed up on the proposed concert and carried out a praise unplugged on the 21st of February.

Training/ Workshop series for CE Lekki Zone 5 church choir

We carried out 8 workshop sessions for the choir and also addressed the instrumentalists. The prayer and planning meeting for Lekki held 5 times in the course of the month

The creative use of lyrics, phrases and the general composition and artistry of lyrics was also enhanced.

 

We had a practical situation whereby after a particular lyrical workshop the choir was told to practice what they had learnt.

 

The voice or the place of vocals cannot be over emphasized. We had vocal appreciation exercises, which are boosters to any serious minded vocalist. Practical exercises were taught and the exercises were carried out.

At the end of the exercises they learnt breath control, how to breathe properly, how to work their ‘diaphragmic’ muscles, they learnt how to sing through the mix of transitions with the diaphragm, the chest and head tones also known as falsetto.  In total, we had 200 participants for the 8 times we have gone there.

Training/workshop series for CE Isolo Zone 2 church choir

At the end of the exercises also in Isolo they learnt breath control, how to breathe properly, how to work their ‘diaphragmic’ muscles, they learnt how to sing through the mix of transitions with the diaphragm, the chest and head tones also known as falsetto.
