Voice Workshop: Vocal Tips, Tricks & Techniques
This workshop aims to educate singers on how to keep their voice healthy on a daily basis right through to coping with sickness, long studio sessions and live performance. The workshop is especially designed for the more informally trained singer/musician who would like to learn the basics of good, healthy singing technique.
Kristina will take you through vocal anatomy, proper breathing and balancing tone, as well blending your registers and giving you tips for using your voice more effectively and safely. The workshop will also help singers optimize projection and minimize vocal fatigue. Kristina would also like to invite two singers to prepare a short excerpt of a song they are currently working on to be masterclassed in front of the group.
You will need to provide a backing track in advance.
