Shannon Boyce, certified Uncovering the Voice teacher, will offer Foundational Course #1 from The School of Uncovering the Voice.

“Awakening to the Breath” with the exercises to Forget the Breathing.

Online this summer starting June 27th 2022, 14 lessons over 5 weeks.

No previous experience required.

All are welcome whether you love to sing or long to sing.

There are multiple sessions offered to cover different time zones.

This course is offered live online to those who are interested in exploring “Uncovering the Voice”, an artistic and therapeutic impulse first developed by Mrs. Valborg Werbeck-Svärdström under the guidance of Rudolf Steiner.

In this work, the singer and the process of singing are viewed holistically, inviting the singer to pursue a deeper self-awareness through moving with confidence and joy toward discovering his or her own voice, with the aim of the natural opening and balance of the voice.

It is a gentle process, and the voice is never pushed along but develops slowly through the engagement and active participation of the singer, who gains a deeper understanding and manifestation of the truly free voice.

A wide range of specific singing exercises will be developed together along with a comprehensive study of Chapters 8 of Werbeck’s book, “Uncovering the Voice: The Cleansing Power of Song”. Werbeck calls this chapter, “Exercises to Forget the Breathing”.

The course will be offered online over 5 weeks broken into 14 lessons. All lessons are also recorded and available for later viewing should you need to miss a live session or it works better in your schedule to take the course through watching the videos.

♫ Three 90 minute online group lessons per week a total of 14 lessons over Five weeks. See schedule below.
