COACHING REACHES SINGERS ON A SENSORY LEVEL

 


Singers respond to coaching on a sensory level, as they work through arias, phrase-by-phrase. The goal - and thrill - is to sing the entire aria in one seamless line.-


Like conventional vocal coaching sessions, we pick apart an aria to reveal exactly what needs work: common issues are placement, breath, alignment of voice to body, along with issues of character, mood, music and meaning, etc.


The primary focus is the physical act of singing... connecting how it feels while singing (a particular note, measure or phrase) to how it sounds.


Singers refine their sound as they are guided to (for example):

feel resonance in the fascial mask

calibrate how much breath to take for a given phrase

re-align their spine

re-distribute body weight over the feet

 

 

By the end of each session, the work results in overall improvements, including clarity of tone, intonation, dynamics, expression, and interpretation.

· BREATHING lower and more efficiently with less breath  so you never run out mid-phrase.

COACHING BRINGS LASTING RESULTS


Participants make significant progress in each session; additional sessions build on past progress, which hastens results.

Each session brings revelations at an increasingly fast and steady pace, as participants hear and feel what it's like to sing with new efficiency, strength and clarity of sound.
