Free class: SING A SECRET

"Sing a Secret" @ Judson Memorial Church, NYC (FREE)

Whether you are a seasoned professional, a proud shower singer, or someone who has never opened their mouth to sing, Inside Voice allows singers and non-singers alike to uncover the power and beauty of their full 5-octave range while developing a deep, emotive connection to their own unique sound. Through exercises and group songs that are as silly as they are revelatory, Inside Voice shows that the only limits on our voices are the ones we impose on them and that to work on the voice is to work on the self. You’ll learn to harness powerful, heartbreaking, visceral, fragile, and otherworldly sounds you never dreamed were inside you all the while dramatically extending your range, building your confidence, and strengthening the emotional links between you and your voice. Inside Voice synthesizes Jon Stancato's research and training in the extended voice techniques of Roy Hart/Richard Armstrong and Thomas Richards/Grotowski Workcenter.

(Read a review of the class from Brash Pursuits' Timothy French)

Classes are 100% free and are held other Saturday, 10am-1pm at Judson Memorial Church.
