Course Description

Based in the Visconti studios here at Kingston University, this practice-based course is led by two specialist practitioners to focus on personal set up and tools for singers. Through embodied, experiential learning and shared practice, individuals will develop an awareness and greater appreciation of the range of approaches to deliver chosen songs with ease, proficiency, and enjoyment.       

The two-day course will focus on the connection of mind, body and voice using the Alexander Technique and strategies for storytelling to perform with ease, proficiency and enjoyment. 

Participants are invited to bring a song of their choosing (in English, with piano accompaniment) to be worked on in an informal masterclass format and shared at the end of the second day with the group. 

A “toolkit” of strategies will be acquired through embodied experiential learning, observation of others and reflective discussion. Students will gain a greater awareness of how the mind, body, and voice are interlinked and a personal understanding of the impact of personal habitual patterns on our delivery. Students will build an understanding of technical elements in a song to develop a confident delivery of their material. Individuals will have the opportunity to share practice and develop agency in their creative work. 

Day One — Introduction 

On this day we will explore and put into practice what we require to sing well, introducing Alexander Technique for Singers, Articulation and Breath, and approaches to mapping out a song in shared practice.

Day Two — Mind, Body and Voice

Day two focuses on Mind, Body and Voice, building on the techniques from the first day. We will examine Story Telling in Song, exploring narratives. The day will culminate with a warmup and sharing of work, and end with Food for Thought, ideas to take forwards into your own practice.
