'Introduction to Fitzmaurice Voicework and Pedagogical Connections' with Jedd Owen-Ellis Clark
Thursday 14th January, 5pm (UK time)

This is a 2 hour introductory session into Fitzmaurice Voicework®, aiming to help you sense the fundamentals of the work, connect to your own learning and experience of the body:voice, and give you possible openings of curiosity into allowing the voice to be unique, authentic, present, resonant, alive and communicative.  Fitzmaurice Voicework combines adaptations of classical voice training techniques with modifications of yoga, shiatsu, bioenergetics, energy work, and many other disciplines. This integration serves to harmonise the voluntary and involuntary aspects of the nervous system which can affect the voice.

Through deep and practical explorations of the dynamics between body, breath, voice, imagination, and language, the work develops vibrant voices that communicate intention and feeling without excess effort.

'Shouldering The Blame - Exploring the Upper Body In Voice Training & Rehabilitation' - With Chris Johnson, Tuesday 16th February 5pm (UK Time)

One reasonably well explored principle in voice production is how the breathing system can and does adapt to the larynx, be it the register, resistance or possibly a pathological problem.

As we explore this principle, there are common adaptations that happen in the upper body that can be assessed using the arms.

This makes the arms and shoulders a valuable part of assessing singers understanding the singing ‘system’ and eventually deciding the training route.
