Your body is your instrument when you sing. Using your voice well comes from an active sense of physical support from foot soles, through the legs and spine to the crown of the head. Awareness of body-alignment and muscle-tone together creates a pattern of breathing efficiently without strain. Beautiful and expressive singing comes from being present and centered in the body.
I understand the physicality of how the body sings. My work with singers is based on my own development as a somatic practioner in the modalities of Eutony, Wild Goose Qigong and Modern Dance. I integrate this approach with my professional training as a singer.
My lessons will show you how to develop your singing body and build practical musicianship. Deep listening, feeling a rhythmic pulse and sensing the shape of words on the tongue creates a feedback loop that allows the voice to be expressive
Embodied musicianship develops a feedback loop between ear and throat that is the hallmark of a great singer.
"I'm so grateful and appreciative for the lessons. My mind was blown when I stepped in the studio after our third lesson and my head pretty much exploded when I sat to write songs and sing during my last night in the Bay. The rhythm work, being comfortable in seeing and hearing myself and the warm-up work created a small miracle!"
