Day 1 – The Therapeutic Power of Vocal Connection and Expression

We will explore different exercises to develop the voice and uncover hidden vocal potential. We will also work with fun, creative and interactive vocal games, warm-ups and ice-breakers to enable groups to experience the therapeutic power of vocal connection and expression. Improvisation is an important part of life – we will look at what’s going on in the brain when we improvise and the therapeutic benefits of vocal improvisation.

Day 2 – ‘Songlines’ – Telling Stories Without Words

Tone Poems are a modern-day representation of the ancient practice of sharing language. We will discuss the therapeutic application of tone poems and also looking at singing our stories and bringing gentle movement and voice together as a creative and expressive therapeutic art-form.

Day 3 – Voicescapes and Voice Art

Voicescapes are a way of painting pictures with the voice and can be direct representations of an art piece or they can tell a deep and meaningful story. During this day we will be learning about the therapeutic application and benefits of voice-scaping including notation and how to translate two-dimensional art pieces into a four-dimensional voice-art pieces. We will explore different types of voicescape from abstract vocal pieces to dynamic and creative spectacular performances.successful and transformational groups.
