A voice intensive is a multi-day, multi-hour curriculum set up to meet specific needs of the singer. The sessions can range from a 2 day/2 hours per day mini-intensive--to a 7-day or more/several hours per day rigorous type of training—a voice and performance boot camp.
Singers attempting to break free from old vocal habits and those desiring to bring their performance up to a “next level” will do much better with a longer intensive.
We will decide together regarding the proper length of the intensive and the topics to be included in the study.
The idea of an intensive is to exhaust default technical memory on every level—physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual, so new and more natural defaults can be reset. An intensive allows the singer to get out of his or her own way so the true musician can take over! The goal is to become a pure channel for truly inspired music.
We will agree on a curriculum before you arrive so you will have a clear and ready mindset for the work.
