The course 10-week aims to help students to gain a better understanding of your voice, and most importantly, to sing healthily with good breath support.
The first half of the course covers the mechanism of production, phonation, and resonance. It also includes basic diction, which is a crucial but easily overlooked aspect to develop a clear and powerful tone.
The second half of the course will be devoted to song-based sessions that focus on performance practices, and the integration and application of the singing skills covered.
