About this Airflow and Support Core Component Workshop
This Airflow and Support Core Component Workshop will focus in on two of the core components of the Classical Voice Training Teaching Model: airflow and support. Through practical application, the Model gives the singer and teacher the skills they need to develop their classical singing technique. We have designed this workshop specifically for singers and singing teachers.
Airflow & Support are the focus for this workshop. Let’s explore, through evidence-based research and practical exercises, how singers and teachers can use the deep connections between the emotional motor system and the respiratory system in singing. We will investigate primal sounds as triggers for emotional vocalisation and how they recruit the respiratory system appropriately. We’ll also learn how to assess breathing and support and set up the vocal tract for different primal voice qualities, and the relationship between them. You’ll learn how to find and maintain efficient breathing, airflow and support strategies during singing. This course is packed full of practical exercises and techniques, giving both singers and teachers powerful tools for their own practice.
Taught by Opera Singer and Vocal Craft and Classical Voice Training Director James Platt and Professor Janice Chapman, author of the acclaimed textbook Singing and Teaching Singing: A Holistic Approach to Classical Voice, this workshop is the third session of a complete series of in-depth explorations of the full SATS Model.
