We will do extensive and fun warm-up techniques-including breathing, vowel and consonant work and pacing. We will learn how to use the diaphram and support the flow of sound with the tongue and jaw to realize your actual ability to project. We will aslo work on resonance and vocal vibration by allowing your instrument to connect with the emotions of a given character.
