Using Movement to Free Vocal Tension
Date: Tuesday 26th February
Time: 7.00pm GMT
Venue: Online via Zoom
Total Spaces: 100
Have you ever had that experience where you’re singing and suddenly your throat starts feeling progressively tighter and tighter, and it becomes an uphill battle to keep getting sound out?
Or that thing where you have the big gig and you sail through on adrenaline (including the party at the bar afterward where everyone is shouting at each other over the noise) and then wake up the next morning to realize you’re not going to be able to sing or speak for a few days? It’s highly likely you’re experiencing vocal tension.
Fortunately, the fabulous Elissa Weinzimmer will be hosting our February webinar and discussing:
- Why you might be experiencing tension in your neck, shoulders, jaw, and tongue
- How you can modify principles of yoga, somatics, and dance to release vocal tension
- Practical exercises that you can use within your regular singing practice
- When and how to interrupt the flow of your practice (or a gig!) with a tension release exercise.
Elissa Weinzimmer will also answer any questions you may have about the topic.
You will need a microphone if you want to talk to us. Chat also available, camera optional.
- Regular: £10
- Full Tribe Members: Free
