In a dynamic learning experience, the development of the voice is not an exercise carried out in order to improve that which is always produced or to refine one’s own technique, but to open oneself to new possibilities through change. All voice exercises are concerned with isolating, developing or integrating registers.
Cornelius L. Reid (1911-2008)
The practice is based on “Functional development of the voice”, which follows the teaching of Cornelius L. Reid.
Voice training is helpful for
- those who want to try out their own singing voice and be amazed at their own potential
- choir members
Voice training provides new ways to enjoy your relationship with your voice
- stimulating range, increasing your capacity/capabilities and experimenting with new directions
- understanding the natural functions of your own voice
- helping, if necessary, to isolate, develop and integrate the registers
Vocal training gives speech therapists the opportunity to
- understand vocal functions more easily, based on intense personal experience
- stimulate breathing
- develop a more sensitive ear
Voice training helps all those working in fields where speech is important, such as teachers, consultants and actors, to use their own voice effectively.
