Knowing Your Voice
This course is designed to help singer-songwriters or anyone who is passionate about singing learn more about their voice and how to maintain optimal health while maintaining a performance schedule or working as a professional musician. It will use a combination of lecture-style and workshop-based presentations and to give singers practical application of the information presented. Jenee and Josh aim to help attendees understand vocal effort, vocal exercises, and what to do if they believe they have a vocal issue. The course will last eight hours with a lunch break and will combine the latest evidence-based research in voice and speech science with applications to the singer-songwriter’s own songs.
All levels are welcome and you do not need to be a professional singer or songwriter to enjoy the benefits of this workshop. We welcome everyone.
