Singing is a way of discovering oneself, a dialog with our inner self and an experience of communicating with others. The voice can take us to a deep journey of sounds, qualities, styles and expressions. In order for this journey to be healthy, energetic, and artistic, one way to approach it is by working with the voice as an instrument: we learn from it and about it.

This weekend intensive workshop will focus on the three overall principles of singing to ensure healthy sound production: support, necessary twang and jaw-lips use. This principles include working on posture, breathing, pronunciation, position of the tongue, voice volume, pitch, range, and tuning.

Open to all people interested in developing their singing voices.
