The common definition of respire is to breathe; a lesser-known literary definition means to recover hope, courage and strength after a time of difficulty (OED).
The intention of my practice is to relieve tension, fear, and fatigue, in the vocal mechanism so that the singer can progress with hope, perform with courage and find strength in their unique sound.
Whether you are interested in furthering your vocal study, struggling with a voice disorder, or exploring sound as a restorative pathway, my mission is to cultivate:
- vocal health by restoring and maintaining vocal function and quality
- vocal mindfulness by bringing awareness to body and breath
- vocal authenticity by discovering and celebrating your distinctive sound
