The Vocal Artistry Workshop is a training experience divided into four sessions -Freedom, Strength, Expression, and Style.
Freedom: Discovering Vocal Freedom
Every singer should know the confidence that comes from vocal strength and control, in order to experience the thrill of connecting their heart to their songs and discovering the freedom of true vocal expression. This session will help you to identify the areas of vocal tension that are limiting your vocal range, strength and flexibility and will provide practical exercises that will help you to move beyond the barriers holding back your vocal potential.
Strength: Increasing Vocal Range
Do you feel like your upper range has a ceiling? Are there parts of your range that frustrate you because you just can't get your voice to do what you want it to? And what do you do with the break? This session will simplify the complexity of developing the fullness of your vocal range and provide you with practical exercises for ongoing development.
Expression: Stage Presence and Communication
Connecting the Heart to Physical Expression. Effective singing for ministry requires that our communication is both authentic and compelling. This session will walk you through the process of "unpacking" the content of a songs lyrics, identifying areas of your "story" that intersect with the message of a song and then authentically expressing your response through the song. We will also highlight some common mistakes that get in the way of authentic expression.
Style: The Art of Vocal Style
A Singer has countless ways in which they can "color" a song with nuance and stylistic interpretation. This session breaks down some of the mysteries of current Vocal Styles and provides you with practical tools that will allow you to express your songs with relevance and authenticity.
