“Un-Mute” Your Heart, Your Soul: Your Voice

Week of December 21, 2019

“Un-Mute” Your Heart, Your Soul: Your Voice
A series of about 8 sessions

Many of us were discouraged from telling our stories along the way. Whether it was being dissuaded from taking on that fine arts degree in college, or being told not to “ruin” the music on the radio by singing along at the top of our lungs when we were “tweens.”  For the voice inside of you that was quieted against its will, we set the stage for you to “Un-Mute” Your Heart, Your Soul: Your Voice.

The week’s program:

We’ve come up with five ways to make your “un-mute” a blissful and peace-steeped experience:

  1. Prepare physically and mentally with daily Breathing and Relaxing Exercises.
  2. Overcome the pressure of yesterday’s results and tomorrow’s expectations with The Art of Warming Up: Being Here, Now, vocally.
  3. Find the words and sounds that best enable you to tell your story with Repertoire Selection*.
  4. Craft your story, in sound, with Vocal Style**.
  5. Tell your story with an End of the Week Vocal Performance!***

*If it sounds fancy, don’t worry: it isn’t! Repertoire Selection is about picking that song that notoriously sets you free … and yes, we mean strongly considering your favorite karaoke, shower, and/or highway cruising jam as a study piece.  We offer to brainstorm ideas with you one-on-one, to learn your selection with you, and to help you to better understand and express yourself through that selection.

**Some folks are soft-spoken but wish they were more outgoing; others long to be more intimate, sensitive, dynamic.   Any virtue you’d want to assume in your life, we can help you assume vocally with the full belief that if you can conquer it in your voice, you can conquer it in your life.

Un-Muted! Our Hearts…Our Souls…Our Voices…in Concert!

Thursday 8:00pm Oaktree Pavilion
*** Don’t worry!! The performance is not by any means “mandatory,” rather, it’s a special treat and a supportive stage to be able to share your personal findings with your fellow seekers should you choose to do so.
