Covid-19 update: I am currently offering sessions in vocal development using the Alexander Technique via Zoom. Due to Covid-19 I am at the moment not offering any face-to-face voice sessions. Please contact me for more information.
“There cannot be any sound …where there is no instrument. There cannot be any instrument where there is no body” (Leonardo da Vinci, artist, scientist, inventor)
With the help of the Alexander Technique lessons you can learn to use your voice with more impact and less strain.
You can develop a richer, fuller, freer sound. Your voice becomes a flexible and highly expressive part of your own self.
I offer individual coaching sessions and small group workshops which are suitable for anyone wishing to explore and experiment with both their speaking and singing voice.
In addition to coaching individuals I have also run vocal development workshops for institutions: for opera singing students at the Music University of Vienna, for teachers as part of their professional development programme run by the University of Education Vienna, for singing students in Zagreb (Croatia), to name a few.
“The voice coaching I’ve had from Harriet Anderson … helps me to use my voice more efficiently and with greater ease.” Gunther Kaltenböck, University Lecturer
In the sessions and workshops we will:
- take a practical look at the living anatomy of breathing and voice use
- consider voice placement * pitch * volume * resonance & voice quality * articulation & speaking skills (Presentation Skills)
- experience how the principles of the Alexander Technique can be beneficially applied to body, mind and emotions in connection with vocalisation
- experiment with a variety of vocal exercises and simple songs
The emphasis is on enjoying your voice while meeting your professional or personal vocal needs.
“I cannot imagine my daily life as a university professor of singing without the Alexander Technique.” Regine Koebler, University of Music, Vienna
