Do you want to teach singers about their ability to ‘support’ their sound but find that what works in your body doesn’t translate to others? Have the ways you’ve tried to explain it get singer’s tied up in knots? What is ‘appoggio’ anyway?
The typical information in vocal pedagogy books never addresses the interconnections across the body and how they impact vocal production. Some people have told you to feel a bearing down resistance. You’ve observed some singers bulge out in the epigastrium. You watch your students brace as they onset the sound, where it looks like the ribs and belly are locked. You’ve heard about the transverse abdominus, but it’s unclear how it really impacts the voice.
The deep layer of the Functional Reflexive Core (FRC) forms the foundation of an easily produced voice that singer’s can control and finesse. However, when we look at the modern singer’s body, we quickly see that the FRC is just snoozing away, not connected and responsive to breath, let alone movement and singing.
Join me for this 3 hour workshop where we will look at the connections that run throughout the core of the body from throat to pelvic floor and move in ways that address alignment, upper body tension, breathing and waking up the deep layer of the functional reflexive core to build coordination and function.
Attendees should bring their own yoga mat, all other props will be provided by the studio.
