Have a workshop with a TRG member - for free! During the spring of 2009, the Real Group tests a workshop session concept, where they set up a video conference call over the internet. Common equipment is used, which means that basically any vocal group in the world can have a try! You need a broadband internet connection, and some audio equipment. Your teacher will be one of the Real Group singers, each of whom has extensive experience in teaching vocal ensembles.
