I will be hosting two workshops which will help kickstart (or remember) your understanding of the fundamentals of voice. How it is supported by efficient breath use and how you can learn to rely on your voice through simple, daily techniques and exercises to grow your voice.
Over 3 hours we will playfully challenge your voice: using breath, music and your imagination.
Bring an open heart, water and loose clothing.
