Major: Singing with Soul: Your Body Is Your Instrument
Level Beginner to Advanced.
“The voice is the organ of the soul” – Longfellow

Singing is all about breath, as breath is the power source of the voice. In this class we will look at letting go of some of the holding patterns that impede the breath and explore a whole body approach to singing. We will look at ways that we can unstick the voice and access higher highs, lower lows and new colours and textures with ease. We will be playing with different styles of singing with a lean toward gospel blues and soul, working toward performing a collaborative song. There is room for both soloists and doo-woppers!
