KEEPING THE CHANGE: Experiencing Strategies for Long-Term Integration in the Voice Studio Using the Tongue/Breath Connection

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For better or for worse, any vocal exercise we work on with our students or clients (or even with ourselves) will produce a result, but has learning, and most importantly, integration occurred? All too often, the answer is no. We can have the most up-to-date information and use the best techniques and exercises available to us, but without a process for integration - so that the nervous system can accept, use and keep these new patterns available for us as needed - we tend to fixate on the exercises, waste physical and mental energy and, sadly, create new problems in order to suppress the old ones. In this “Experiential Lecture,” Robert Sussuma, singer, voice teacher and Feldenkrais® Practitioner, will guide you through a learning experience that illuminates the many connections between the tongue and breathing in singing while employing various strategies from the fields of Experiential and Somatic Learning. Once experienced and understood, these strategies can be applied to your work in the voice studio in order to increase the long-lasting effectiveness of any vocal exercise, technical improvement or practice session. These practical strategies will show you how to move well beyond the “quick fix” mentality and expand what is already known from the field of Motor Learning.
