Don’t miss this rare opportunity at BATS School of Improv!
Joseph Bates, nationally-known musical director and singing coach, is holding a day-long singing intensive.
If you would like to sing with more ease and fun, and with less fear and anxiety, this workshop is for you! If you’ve ever been told that you need ‘breath support’ to sing better or louder, this workshop is for you. You will learn what that means and how to get it yourself!
You will learn how to make sound more efficiently using your whole body. You will be more present with your own body while singing. With Joseph and Patricia’s coaching you will experience your body functioning as the musical instrument it is.
This workshop will focus on learning to use your own breath and body to open your voice for performance.
We’ll be using improv singing, so no sheet music is needed and our own David Norfleet will be in the class providing the keyboard music and improv singing direction.
Singing is the focus of this workshop, but the ideas and techniques from this deep and powerful work can be used for speech performance too, as many of you already know from the classes that Patricia Pearson has taught at the BATS School.
Please join us for a wonderful day of supportive exploration, learning and singing.
Joseph (Joey) is a Master Level Fitzmaurice Voicework ® Singing and Speech Coach and he uses this approach to guide people to achieve vibrant sound and emotional connection to characters in song and text. He makes this wonderful work immediately available to all who want to gain from it by applying his deep knowledge and experience, as well as his warmth, good humor and sensitivity.
