Workshop in Belgrade for women working with post-war trauma victims in Serbia and Bosnia
At the beginning of the term Birgitte Grimstad has for several years held 3-day seminars in vocal technique and voice liberation for our students at the Musical Theatre Dept.
Birgitte’s work establishes a basis for our work the rest of the year.
She works with the whole voice as an instrument and is not tied down to any one method.  She is very flexible, and focuses – even in large groups - on the ability and potential of each individual student, and gives positive and creative feedback to each one. She has a profund knowledge of people and a great ability to communicate, - which means she gets a lot done in a short time. I give my warmest recommendations for Birgitte Grimstad as a workshop instructor.
