Dory is a hard combination to find: she pays careful attention to vocal technique and general musicianship, but is supportive of work in any genre, not just classical.
- Colleen Swanson, Mezzo Soprano
In our first sessions we will establish your goals for the term in several categories, then create your individual course of study.
Elements of focus
Body - Movement, Breath, Stage Presence, Voice
Mind - Technique, Diction, Memorization, Practice Routine
Heart - Emotional Availability, Character Work, Expression
Each student comes to voice lessons with their own vocal experience, so individual lessons will differ. However, there are some basics every student will engage with in the lesson: movement and breathing exercises and a variety of vocal warm-ups, then strengthening whichever aspects of your technique need attention. In monthly studio classes you will have the option to perform a song for the group in a kind and supportive atmosphere. We work together on the song in class and everyone benefits from hearing their peers work through technique.
We will explore your needs based on the following areas;
Classical, Jazz, Musical Theater, Folk Repertoire
