VoiceGym exercises for adults
VoiceGym is a complete exercise programme for developing and maintaining the coordination and efficiency of voice, body and brain.
The exercises work all of these together, resulting in a voice with the resonance and power that is only possible when the body has an attractive upright posture and the brain has flexibility and imagination.
VoiceGym is particularly helpful to those who:
Already sing or speak well, but who want to improve
Had a poor vocal beginning from which they would like to escape
Have been told they can't sing
Have a terror of being asked to read or present in public
Are pregnant, or have young children, and do not realise how important a role the mother plays in development of voice, teeth and intelligence (see Early VoiceGym)
Have no maintenance system for their most important professional tool - the voice. Voice loss is not the time to think about that, prevention is better
Whole-body exercises and stretches to connect voice and brain through speech and song:
Fun and energising sessions...the VioceGym exercise book and audio CD provide you with the tools to connect voice, brain, speech and singing.
Exercises to improve and tone face muscles, tongue posture and core:
These are potentially major areas of interference in the voice and in your life. VoiceGym develops them separately before encouraging them to work together. A new attitude to opening your mouth and a strengthening of pelvic and related muscles will bring major improvements to speech, singing and confidence.
Building your vocal confidence and stamina:
Including songs to sing, prose and poems. Develop resonance and pitch range by reading poetry and prose aloud; roll and improvise - the ultimate freedom for voice and body; extend your singing repertoire over a greater pitch range using whole body stretches.
