The human voice is capable of the most intimate, profound, moving, passionate, and emotional expression -- and revelation.
It is the most natural and communicative of all musical instruments
– even without words – requiring nothing outside of the body – similar to an athlete – but the skillful and accurate coordination of body and mind.
All for the purpose of artistic expression and communication.
The training involved in freeing the resonance or “ring” of one’s operatic voice for projecting these emotions
(intimate and grand) to others,
over waves of orchestral tone, into a large theater – without the support of microphones –
is both an amazing athletic feat and a transformational personal odyssey.
Everyone has a voice. One’s voice tells others who we are in many important ways.
Few have truly mastered theirs. And to guide a person to their own “true voice” is an important, thrilling, and frequently transformational and transcendental experience.
AND ALL THE WORK PAYS OFF IN SO MANY WAYS!!
