Drawing on 40 years of vocal training and performance
In my unique approach to finding your true voice I utilize a vast array of exercises and techniques that allow the student to relax into their natural voice and speaking and singing range(s). Having a sense of your center while speaking or singing allows for more freedom and confidence in expression.
The current science around the Polyvagal Theory (Dr. Stephen Porges), unearths new correlations between singing and the downregulation ( calming) of the nervous system. My sessions take into account the importance of a grounded and relaxed physical state while performing, with the addition of breath work, physical movement, and inner work as it relates to singing and speaking performance. Although we will explore exercises that increase awareness of range and space, we will also work on particular projects or skills that you want to improve upon.
My sessions are fun and expansive and tailored to each students goals, moving progressively forward. I enjoy working with all levels of students, even those who claim that they can not sing or stay on pitch. Come see what we can do together!
I also bring over 20 years of music production experience and can help to organize projects for recording, publication, and distribution. My 20+ years as a professional modern dancer brings another component of movement and ability to choreograph live shows.
