Let your voice fly free
Would you love to be more free, confident and expressive when you sing?
If you long to share more of your unique self-expression through your singing voice, but are held back by nerves, inhibitions or self-doubt, a Free Your Voice vocal improvisation course could help you unlock new possibilities.
We (Lise and Danielle) invite you to join our supportive singers’ circle for a weekend of empowerment. Come share in the magic of creating spontaneous a cappella music – and find new ways to set your voice free.
Free Your Voice Level 2
You’re a singer who’s ready to do a deep dive into the art of the improvised solo. You’ve already got experience of improvising and being creative with your voice, and you can sing in front of others without nerves completely overwhelming you. However, in the moment of stepping up to improvise a solo you still feel underconfident and inhibited.
You’d love to be able to vary your solos more, and have more artistic choice over how they sound. You want to experience yourself as a free, confident and expressive improvising soloist.
Improvise solos with greater artistic freedom and confidence
On Free Your Voice Level 2 you’ll learn how to practise and prepare for improvised solos, so you can really own them!
This weekend will give you the rare opportunity to focus on improvising solos, within the context of Collaborative Vocal Improvisation. You’ll get the chance to practise being heard soloing within a safe and supportive group. We’ll use embodiment tools, combined with a gentle, playful approach, to loosen your inhibitions and pave the way for a positive experience of the soloist role.
You’ll develop your awareness of the creative choices you can make during an improv solo, and learn what it takes to structure and develop a great on-the-spot melody.
By the end of this weekend you’ll have a clear, step-by-step process you can use to continue to develop your artistic voice, move beyond your ‘go-to’ sounds and blossom into a free and confident improvising soloist.
How will the Level 2 weekend flow?
Your weekend will begin with a warm welcome into our singers’ circle. We’ll lead you through a process to settle your body, before introducing you to the other singers who’ll be sharing in this soloist’s journey. We’ll then get some group agreements in place to help everyone feel safe.
After warming up your voice and sense of rhythm, we’ll start to expand your vocal and musical palette by exploring different ways to create vocal colours and textures.
On both Saturday and Sunday you’ll have the chance to play with a variety of improvisation techniques. These will focus on developing your individual voice as an improviser, but also bring in Collaborative Vocal Improvisation so you can feel supported by the voices of the whole group.
By Sunday afternoon we’ll be focusing on putting our new learnings into practice creatively, weaving together beautiful a cappella layers to inspire each soloist to ‘take the stage’ and enjoy their moment to shine!
