Overview:  This popular day follows on from previous workshops in Europe in response to many requests for further information on the physiology of breathing & appropriate breathing techniques when performing, acting and singing. The teaching of ‘support’ is still an area fraught with misunderstanding and misinformation. The key to effective teaching of this crucial area of vocal technique is clear understanding of the physiological basis for the need to ‘support’, what is being supported and the most efficient ways to achieve this. Building on information given on earlier courses, we will identify which muscles are needed to support the voice by clarifying the relationship between breath and vocalisation. clearly identifying those muscles which undermine vocal support and those which are essential to sustained, vigorous voice use, in speaking or singing. The day will conclude with a short master class, demonstrating the application of the day’s principles in the teaching studio.

The day will include:

•  Defining ‘support’ physiologically

•  Demonstration of teaching techniques

•  Myths and misinformation – disentangling fact from fiction

•  Audio and video examples

•  Short master class

Suitable for: For people both new and familiar with the Model, looking for clarification and consolidation; singers and actors; teachers of voice and singing; students and professionals.
