Your private session will focus on your unique needs and will include some or all of the following steps towards freeing your voice and imagination:
Physical release work: releasing your unnecessary tension through a multiplicity of mind/body/voice exercises.
Alignment: centering and grounding yourself so that the voice can be centered and grounded even under the pressure of performance.
Breath: exploring the spontaneity of the breath while encouraging diaphragmatic breathing.
Resonance: exploring and balancing your chest, head and mask resonators.
Range: while keeping your voice grounded, you will explore your range venturing outside your usual “comfort zone”.
Articulation: releasing unnecessary tension while exploring the coordination of the jaw, lips, tongue, and soft palate so that clarity can be achieved.
Contemporary/Classical Audition Monologues: incorporating vocal practice and script analysis into text work.
Private lessons are one hour long and can be recorded.
