Singing is a unique form of communication. It is large scaled and overtly emotional. Singing sets into motion and coordinates vast muscle structures of the vocal instrument and puts great physical demands on the singer; like a top athlete. Our desire to communicate is the reason for singing. It is easy to lose sight of what is important in singing when we concentrate too much on learning a new skill. The course format includes lecture and demonstration on "how the voice works" (anatomy and physiology) primal voice (communication), and vocal health and habilitation (maintenance and individual voice care planning).
