You will gain the tools of healthy singing through breathing techniques and body alignment.
Much of our teaching for voice focuses on building a good base for healthy singing. This means letting go and using your body in the most natural and beneficial way. To achieve healthy singing, you need to learn about using your body in the most efficient way. Your body is your instrument after all. We will focus on various alignment and movement exercises in tandem with breathing and breath control. This leads to tone production and how to achieve a healthy sound without tension or force. The goal of these lessons is how to sing in a free and healthy manner, allowing you to sing for many years to come.
With song comes text. Part of these lessons will also focus on the interpretation and pronunciation of text in song, regardless of the language. We will work on how the sounds we make turn into words, how the various languages may function, and how to interpret and express the music without restraint.
There are many places and ways to sing. To further your abilities, we can also focus on lessons in sight singing, ear training and/or theory at your request. Improving your sight singing and ear training can greatly aid in singing in group settings like in a choir or production. Understanding the theory will help you understand the music. To better understand the change in mood, color, or the style of the songs you are singing. Enquire about different options!
