Teaching content

We will begin with a set of exercises helping us to practice ways to eliminate unnecessary tensions in the body, which can be a source of hindrance for free sound making. This will also guide us towards a more accurate awareness of the relationship between breathing and body posture. We will work on the vocal range of each person and we will refine the act of listening using imitation games, rhythmic exercises, invention games within melodic forms and imaginary language. We will practice vocal technique exercises in fun and dynamic ways so that to explore different modalities. We will make connections between the speaking and singing voice, increase one's vocal extent and develop one's power. We will also explore one's relationship to the group and one's place within the group through all kinds of set-ups (in a circle, with a partner, in small groups), which will lead to assert each person's uniqueness.
