Voice Integration Workshop
This is an introductory workshop to understand how voice works and how to improve it by relying on your inner sensations, your own observations and your own thinking as you go through a series of lessons. This workshop is an overview to vocal functioning applying the principles of the Feldenkrais Method. Reprogramming the neurological patterns that build our vocal function, will give the opportunity to improve the foundation upon which your voice is build on and therefore, naturally, because there is a natural process, your voice will re-emerge with new qualities and possibilities.
We start working in Awareness Through Movement (ATM) lessons applying the Feldenkrais Method, to get in contact with the feelings/sensations of your body. A body with no muscle tension and a functional use of the breath allows vibrations to travel with no constrains, facilitating the voice to fully emerge. This workshop explores some of the movements and sounds that we used in our childhood to develop our voices, and we will take advantage of them to expand our vocal abilities.
The workshop continues with the stimulation of the intuitive, emotional and conceptual aspects of your voice through exercises, using texts, wordless sounds and collective voice improvisation. This process gives a time for experimentation in order to discover the flexibility and capabilities of the voice as a sound source. The workshop also helps to develop voice's expression and creativity.
This is a one day workshop (4 hours total) and it is recommended for all those interested in the health, quality, power and expressivity of the voice in singing and speaking (in the areas of performing arts, personal growth, health, and all people using their voice as a tool in their professions).
Handouts will be distributed during the workshop.
