Due to the success of Michael’s last year’s workshop here – he is coming back

’Michael made me more aware of how the voice is linked to my general well-being. The workshop helped me to be more in control of my voice and I had a wonderful day attending it!’

 

Have you ever wondered how your voice works? How to get the most efficient use of it when singing or speaking publicly? How to use your voice for singing?  Avoid hoarseness?  Be expressive with your voice?

 

During this workshop, through gentle physical, breathing, and vocal exercises, we will explore freeing your natural voice. We will use techniques for good vocal health and thus help develop more confidence in your singing and speech.In the morning, we will explore exercises that can release us physically and vocally, and the afternoon will be more dedicated to individual work in front of the group.  The workshop will offer a very supportive environment enabling to bring the best of each of the participants.

 

Please wear comfortable clothes.
