Freeing the Natural Voice: Level 2


Voice 2 – Breath Power and Range

As your habitual tensions and breath loosen and initial vibrations have more resonance, you can begin to strengthen your voice.  Classes will continue to release tongue, throat, and jaw tensions that add unnecessary pressure and effort.  The focus shifts to the vocal resonating ladder and combines it with a more dynamic physical release through arm, leg and full body swings.  We are conditioning your voice to find more freedom at moments of greater demand.  To support larger impulses of thought and feeling you will explore a series of exercises designed to open and increase your breath capacity, as well as prepare it for quick, lively impulses.  This class will begin to bring the voice work onto a piece of text to help you translate the experience of freedom in your voice to your work on text.
