Combining a cutting edge system of neuro-muscular, sensory based exercizes with a selection of only the proven traditional practices of voicework, PERFORMANCE TRAINING FOR THE VOICE BUILDS A TECHNIQUE THAT –
MAXIMIZES – the capacity of the voice
CREATES – vocal change immediately
ADAPTS – the individual voice to the demands of the material
INDIVIDUALIZES – a program that sets the elements of the voice in the correct balance for optimum response.
DIAGNOSES – at the outset a regimen that works right now to meet the needs of the singer.
WHAT CAN PERFORMANCE TRAINING DO FOR THE VOICE?
TONES, STRENGTHENS & FREES – the larynx to achieve power, clarity and flexibility,completely eliminating vocal strain.
PLACES IN THE BODY – the physical sensory cues that are the “key” to unlocking the voice, opening up the often hidden pathways to the desired sound.
CREATES – a vocal toolbox, giving consistent control to the singer.
ENERGIZES – the voice without pressuring it, creating vocal excitement in a weightless effort.
RESTORES & REHABILITATES – the damaged or misused voice.
WHO USES PERFORMANCE TRAINING FOR THE VOICE?
PERFORMERS WHO NEED TO –
MAINTAIN – range or access a vocal quality – in the moment.
REROUTE – from one vocal quality to another
ACCESS – vocal change without relinquishing a personal, distinctive vocal quality.
FULFILL – a producer’s vision
DEPROGRAM – the misuse of breath and overly contracted muscularity, all of which lead to vocal fatigue, tension and hoarseness.
DEVELOP – laryngeal support, which grounds the voice deep in the body producing brightness, resonance and flexibility without effort.
NAVIGATE – smoothly through the registers of the voice.
