Pitch to Publishers & Festival Organisers

Christine is a seasoned onstage performer. In addition to this she has worked as a private singing teacher and has held numerous singing workshops in South Africa using her book as the source upon which her workshops are based.  As an attraction in a festival setting, she could offer these voice workshops. There are many people from all walks of life who are interested in using their voices – from professional business men to budding singers. The book would be sold in conjunction with the workshops.
