COURSE :: 30 HOURS :: MADRID :: 9 PLACES

PRESENTATION

  • Theoretical and practical workshop aimed at those who are interested in a conscious and unprejudiced vocal practice, either for the simple pleasure of singing, exploring and experimenting with their voice to enrich their everyday and creative processes, or for those interested in pursuing musical, theatrical, poetic or pedagogical professional development.
  • Groups will be limited to 8 places in order to guarantee personalized attention.
  • The workshop is open to all levels of vocal training or experience.

CONTENTS

Here we will tackle the subjects mentioned in the contents page that introduced this section.

This course is different from the 22 hour one in that it includes aspects related to the voice that could only be mentioned or touched upon in the 22 hour course. This course devotes 8 of its 30 hours to:

  • An introduction to the vocal techniques and resources derived from other cultures: yodels, diphonic chant, inuit, ululation, throat singing, guttural timbres, different resonators support, etc.
  • The Holistic Voice: vocal tract health, recommendable protocol and procedures on the day before a concert, on the day of a concert, and in the hours leading up to a concert, dietary advice, simple and effective remedies for vocal fatigue, throat and respiratory tract irritation, kriyas or cleaning for nose, pharynx and nasopharynx, etc.

AIMS and GOALS

  • Identify the right breathing patterns and learn to regulate air intake as the foundation to mastering vocal release.
  • Liberate and reCreate the voice, exploring concepts from abandonment and intuition to conscious technical control.
  • Increased ability for deep listening and to recognise overtones and microtones.
  • Increase the confidence of all students by promoting their genuine attributes, encouraging self-reflection and critique to avoid gregarious attitudes.
  • Encourage students to develop working practices aligned with their interests, qualities, preferences and nature. This will enable students to see the results of regular and conscious practice in the medium term.   
  • Learn to recognise bad habits so that they can progress and correct themselves independently using simple practices and guidelines.
  • Increase the vocal, musical, poetic and performance potential of students by enabling them to experiment with new sounds that they find attractive, however strange or wild they may seem, while protecting their vocal tract.
  • Learn to find inspiration in other vocal cultures, practising them through deep listening rather than mere imitation – with the aim of breaking them down, transcending them and turning them into something new and personal.   
  • Use group exercises and improvisation to help students reach and recognise a sense of creative enthusiasm.
