10-DAY INTENSIVE TRAINING WORKSHOP

Building on over 40 combined years of working with singers, Ann Rodiger and John Norris have put together a unique 10-day intensive training workshop, which teaches singers to integrate vocal technique with expressivity and communication; Performance Practices Workshop focuses on truly integrating body, mind, and voice.

We create a safe environment for exploration, growth and change in the physical aspects in the art of singing. Students develop a dynamic stage presence and learn how to connect with the audience and capture its attention.

At the Daily Warm-Ups, the most important part of the day at the workshop, singers practice integrating what they’re discovering throughout the day, and experience greater awareness of themselves and how to connect with their environments. And by focusing on connection to breath and the resonance chambers of the body, participants experience singing and performing as a full-body activity.

The Warm-Up sets the tone for the rest of the day, which includes Vocal Technique, Musical Coaching, Alexander Technique, Dramatic Coaching as well as Subjective Learning Training (NLP), and a variety of evening events including a Mock Audition, Master Classes and a Final Public Concert.

Performance Practices Workshop is offered for Professional Singers, Young Artists and Conservatory Students showing career potential. Individualized programs are available for professional singers. Participants come to us by the recommendation of their voice teacher, coach, or other program faculty members.
