Singing Lessons and Courses
Singers learn to use the voice to transform physical, emotional and mental states so that what they are expressing aligns with their true intentions as well as the demands of the repertoire.
The practice refines deep and embodied listening, which enables singers to tune into both the audience and internal inspiration resulting in creative, charismatic communication. Mastery results in feeling as if we are being sung.
More Than Singing courses are tailored to serve participants with diverse backgrounds and needs, both professional and amateur. Depending on the number of participants, sessions may include group vocalizing and singing or individual work within the group.
Private Lessons are tailored to each student. They focus on personal goals for vocal mastery, performance or singing as a transformational modality. Typically they begin with techniques for various elements of vocal development including alignment, breath management, phonation, resonance, development of range, dynamics and flexibility. If desired, they continue with repertoire and expressive techniques including musicianship, poetic and dramatic interpretation, and performance skills. In support of vocal practice as a means of personal transformation and expression, lessons also include information about the Communications Network, Tonal Cosmology and complementary practices.
Phone/Skype Sessions are private lessons taken remotely. For skype a solid, high speed internet connection is needed. We can also use google hangout and ichat. Telephone lessons require more independence as there is no visual support.
