MY APPROACH TO VOICE COACHING
We work together to clarify your needs and how to address those needs. Rather than “fixing” your voice, I help you find a richer, healthier access to your voice while you learn to use it more effectively.
Depending on your needs, we can focus on these and other areas:
Your Voice: find and use your voice in healthy, clear, and creative ways.
Vocal Power and Freedom: strengthen your voice, increase resonance, and reduce vocal fatigue. Free a high, tight, or monotone voice.
Stress and Anxiety: learn to feel better and express yourself more effectively under stress.
Presence and Embodiment: learn to take up space, develop greater vibrancy and receptivity, and speak in an embodied way.
Communication: develop your ability to communicate clearly and expressively in a variety of contexts.
Individualized Vocal Warm-ups: develop personal warm-ups that address your needs.
Harmful Habits: learn to speak or sing in ways that prevent or heal vocal nodules. This is done in conjunction with medical professionals.
Breathing: learning to breathe freely can support all of these areas of focus. See also My Approach to Breathing Coaching.
Approaches to Learning
The work will be conceptual, experiential and practical, and the emphasis will change as needed.
Why Conceptual? Because how you understand something affects how you do it.
Why Experiential? Because it’s not enough just to understand something. In order to learn something deeply, you also need to experience it directly.
Why Practical? Because it’s important that our work is useful outside of the studio.
