In class I work on the development of the singing voice through body awareness—applying the Feldenkrais Method—and voice techniques from the worlds of classical, jazz and contemporary music. Aural awareness is improved through ear exercises & singing. Techniques for performance practice and dealing with performance anxiety are addressed. During the work process students work on individual song interpretation/presentation and on individual improvisation (if the student is interested).
The lesson starts with Awareness Through Movement (ATM) —applying the Feldenkrais Method— to get the student in a state where the mind-body learns new possibilitites of movement, making the body feel more comfortable and expanded. It is a first "tuning" before working directly with the sounding voice. Breathing excercises and vocal technique are to continue. When the student is warmed up, we work in the learning and development of a specific song and/or vocal improvisation.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
