About This Workshop:
Singing is a fun, healthy, creative and often social activity. What a great way to spend your time! Research supports the health benefits of singing for all aspects of our lives – spiritual, emotional, intellectual, physical and metaphysical. Those who love to sing are often miserable if they have to stop singing. Good vocal habits can enhance your singing, your teaching and the vocal health and voice quality of your students. Challenges at different stages of life can interfere with singing. Such problems include voice overuse, vocal fatigue, aging, puberty, vocal nodules, allergies, asthma, de- conditioning, pregnancy, whiplash, emotional trauma, and different diseases, etc. This presentation will demonstrate techniques that can maintain vocal health at all ages and show how singing can help enrich and extend one’s life.
"Make and Take": Hosted by Jamie Popowich and Anita Perlau
