We would first work on awareness of alignment/posture and promoting relaxation of the muscles around the vocal mechanism that cause tension. Proper breath support is crucial to sustaining the voice freely and improving tone. We would learn about the mechanics of the voice, so we know what is happening and why. We would sing varying vocal exercises to build stamina, awareness, and control, and then put that to use in a song of your choosing. We would start to analyze the lyrical and emotional content of your song, so as to connect to it, and help you become a more effective communicator.
