'OPEN YOUR VOICE' CLASSES

IN WARSAW

Join us for the next semester September 2024 - February 2025.

The enrolment starts now with the early bird offer.

 

The foundation of the workshop is the belief in the immense power of effortlessness. We work on softness and allowing ourselves to produce a full and strong voice. We search for physical and mental support to release the sound.

 

The workshop consists of relaxation exercises, energetic, physical, and mindfulness warm-ups, activating resonators, techniques for safely releasing calling and screaming, working with speed, volume and melody of speaking, learning traditional songs, and more.

 

The OPEN YOUR VOICE GROUP is aimed at everyone who would like to work on freedom, control, and pleasure in producing sound. Through a series of activities integrating voice with body and emotions, we will build a solid foundation for speaking and singing – we will look for supports for a full, open, and strong voice.

 

Join us to discover or further develop your voice abilities in a community that fosters growth and creativity.
