Finding Your Voice! FREE Class
January 25 ~ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Six Week Session:
Every Thursday, January 25 – March 1, from 6 to 7:30pm
Classes held at Cambridge Hills in Pittsboro: 140 Brookstone Ln, Pittsboro, NC 27312
All experience levels welcome in this FREE class open to the public (donations appreciated). Marie Vanderbeck will cover songs from Folk, Country, Blues, Appalachian, A Cappella and Gospel. Class is for adults only.
Each class will start with vocal exercises. It is important that vocalists use every muscle to achieve the sound they want. We’ll do full body stretches, facial gestures, tongue exercises, lip trills, tongue trills, head and neck stretches, etc. We will learn how to “place the sound forward” to get the fullest sound using concentration on diaphragm and other anatomy.
To add to that there are tongue twisters, catchy songs and harmonic exercises.
Then we get into the good stuff – the song.
Marie will teach one or more songs the first day. On each following session we will review what we have learned and then proceed to learn new songs. Our rate of advancement will be determined by the group’s comfort level and participants are encouraged to provide input about what they’d like to learn.
