A voice that directly and spontaneously reveals your inner life, free of strain.

About The Class:
In this class you will begin with physical awareness and specific relaxation to release trapped energy in the body, creating a lively state of awareness. Next you will free your breathing musculature to release initial vibrations of sound. Through humming, you will develop resonance and spread the feeling of sound vibrations through your body. Then you will open the throat, addressing tension in the jaw, tongue and larynx and awaken the soft palate. You will then explore the resonating frequencies of the first three rungs of the resonating ladder— the chest, the mouth, and the teeth — to strengthen the voice and begin to rediscover the 3-4 octave range you were born with.
