This course will explore the range of the human voice in all its manifestations from deep guttural groans, to Tibetan chanting to singing the most celestial notes

Participants will be encouraged to find their own voice or sound with gentle exploration and lots of laughs

This should be a fun class with no emphasis on singing per se but rather exploring the possibilities of the human voice.
