Resonance Component Workshop Recording


By: Classical Voice Training

This workshop was recorded on Saturday 20th February 2021

Having already explored the core components of the teaching model in previous workshops, this is the fourth workshop exploring the outer satellites of the teaching model. This component workshop for singers and singing teachers, based on the Classical Voice Training teaching model focuses on the outer satellite of Resonance. Resonance and optimizing it allows a classical singer without straining to be heard over a large orchestra, this happen when we ‘tune’ our vocal tract. This workshop will focus on how to build the singers resonance through developing: squillo or epi-laryngeal narrowing, singers formant cluster, larynx height and ‘collar connection’, an open throat, pharyngeal tuning and resonance strategies for different voice types. We’ll look at the most comfortable and efficient configuration of the vocal tract across pitch range and give you simple practical exercises to start using these concepts straight away to improve your teaching and singing.


Vocal Craft and Classical Voice Training are proud to present this recording of the Resonance Component Workshop. Recorded Saturday 20th February 2021.

About Classical Voice Training

Classical Voice Training courses focus in detail on the SATS teaching model. Key elements include: Breathing and Support, Accent Method Breathing, Postural Alignment, Vocal Anatomy and Physiology, Phonation, Acoustic and Laryngeal Registration, Resonance, Articulation, Mind-skills for Performers, and Artistry and Performance. All of these components will be explored in sequence through this series of component workshops and practise group sessions on offer from October 2020 to Summer 2021.

About this Resonance Component Workshop

This Resonance Component Workshop focuses on the outer satellites of the Classical Voice Training Teaching Model: phonation, resonance, and articulation. 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.

Resonance is 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 resonance in singing. We will investigate primal sounds as triggers for emotional vocalisation and how they recruit efficient resonance. We’ll also learn how to assess resonance and set up the vocal tract for efficient voice production across pitch range and for different timbres. We’ll look at how to achieve chiaroscuro – a sound that has the perfect balance of darkness and brightness in it, which forms the core of the classical vocal sound. We will also explore how to use resonance efficiently in your teaching and 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 eleventh session of a complete series of in-depth explorations of the full SATS Model.
