–In group dynamics and sharing we discover how the release of muscle tightness restores the natural effortless voice.
–In discussion, hands on demonstration and body awareness skills (body mapping), we learn to express the easy flow that transforms the whole voice/person.
Working with F M Alexander’s vocal discoveries we uncover unnecessary involuntary muscle tensing of head/spine that interfere with the smooth, clear, powerful voice.
Natural Vocal Freedom is a modern and multi-faceted approach to singing and vocal training using Alexander’s discoveries. Jann McMichael – Director and certified Alexander Technique teacher.
