Our studio is designed to equip vocal performers & public speakers for effective performance stamina & longevity. The vocal student must acquire and nurture knowledge of healthy vocal practices so to sustain the vitality and inherent resonance of the voice – regardless of genre.
Vocal Health is fundamental for the vocal performer since “the human body is the instrument.” Therefore, the development of physical stamina within the “body core” and “oral cavity” is essential for performance longevity. Clients are given an understanding of the factors that contribute to the well-being and/or detriment of the physiological characteristics that impact the quality of their vocal sound.
Quality vocal production is developed as the singer incorporates natural techniques of relaxed breathing and phonation. Once the client is aware of his or her natural physical capabilities and how to cognitively connect them, the process of effectual vocal production is continual and increasing with time, practice, and consistent application.It is essential to acquire and nurture knowledge of healthy vocal practices so to sustain the vitality and inherent resonance of the voice.
