Songstress Julia Palmer-Price (alias Ju-la-la) professional cellist, pianist, composer and teacher, came to Malvern after playing Jimi Hendrix with Nigel Kennedy in 1999, the pinnacle of a colourful career. A former resident at 8 Avenue Road, The (then) Grove (2000-2013), Julia and her late-husband Philip often opened their house as a Performance Arts venue and Julia conceived her Cello’ScooL, which, now 16 strong, regularly returns to perform at Elmslie House.
Julia has been singing since the cradle and welcomes All to enjoy SongS P A C E. Intended as a tonic! Classes begin by connecting with the breath adding gentle movements designed to get energy flowing; then, after tuning in with carefully chosen chants, Sol-fa (so good!) is introduced to train the inner ear, refine listening and pitch control; have fun learning well or little known, fave tunes, old and new, with some of Julia’s own compositions thrown in for good measure; till relaxing maybe with a meditation to finish.
As long as we live, there is never enough singing. ~ Martin Luther
