About this Primal Sound & Postural Alignment Workshop Recording
This ‘Primal Sound & Postural Alignment Core Component’ workshop took place on Saturday 10th October 2020. The original workshop description is as follows:
This workshop will focus in on the core components of the Classical Voice Training Teaching Model. Through practical application, this 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.
Primal Sound and Postural Alignment 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 singing. We will investigate primal sounds as triggers for emotional vocalisation. We’ll also learn how to assess breathing and support and set up the vocal tract for different primal voice qualities. You’ll learn how to find and maintain efficient postural alignment during singing as well. This course is packed full of practical exercises and techniques, giving both singers and teachers powerful tools for their own practice.
Taught by 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 first of a complete series of in-depth explorations of the full SATS Model.
