Service Description

In this 3-day voice workshop intensive, participants will be introduced a series of exercises and techniques designed to lay the foundation vocal support, vocal clarity, and vocal health. What will I learn? Participants are made aware of the importance of breath (support and release), resonance (balance and placement) and vocal presence. Individual problem areas and habituated vocal patterns are identified, and specific vocal needs and capabilities explored. Participants will discover the interdependence of the voice as part of the body. They are introduced to the anatomy and physiology of the voice to healthy vocal production. What is Fitzmaurice Voicework®️? The release breath work of Fitzmaurice Voicework®️ was created by Catherine Fitzmaurice and influenced by the work of Alexander Lowen's Bioenergetic Tremors, yoga stretches, shiatzu, and reiki. There is an expansive release of the respiratory system, vocal tract, and accompanying skeletal musculature with the aid of physical ‘dynamic efforts’ and is where actors are introduced to the energy of the breath. Participants will begin to experience the power of a free torso while discovering the different passageways of breath throughout the body and how they connect to the imagination and holistic vocal resonance.
