VOCAL COACHING FOR ACTORS & SINGERS Vocal Coaching can support everyone who speaks or sings to develop greater flexibility for their voice, to find maximum freedom within a given structure – a song or a text. Learn how to enrich the vocal sound spectrum and experience it as powerful and fluid. Learn to sing or speak effortless. Right before we creating a vocal sound, our vocal chords reflect the inner readiness by its very subtle, natural vibration. When we do not interfere, compensate or apply counterproductive habits, the vocal resonance unfolds naturally and freely. That's why w fully balanced state of tension and relaxation leads to a good and healthy voice technique. But every voice technique has to serve the expression of content in an authentic way. Therefore we must stay connected to our intention and artistic purpose. I help you to build a sustainable, resonant vocal sound and supported breathing for everyday life or for the stage, by focusing on a healthy physiological use. If you struggle with specific vocal problems like hoarseness, compensatory habits of over pressing, wrong breathing techniques etc. Vocal Coaching will include Voice Recovery. Artistic Speech Training for Actors When we get familiar with the diverse range of vocal expressions, we can voice every identity and quality, every emotional state, every thought, to get in direct contact with our audience and move our listeners. Acting is about using the voice as a differentiated tool of expression of the characters, their history, their statements and emotions. But this will only succeed if the voice "obeys", the vocal subtleties are already internalised and we can retrieve them automatically, so that they serve the content, the story and its say. The artistic speaking training for actors covers the entire spectrum of vocal, speaking and acting skills in the field of performing arts and musical performance in a song. This requires a fundamental, holistic education of the voice. The physiological-functional approach that I offer allows a natural self-regulation of voice and breath as well as maintaining the health of the voice under high vocal demands. This is especially important for continuous speaking over long periods of time. The intense work on a natural approach to the reflexive respiratory function - without deliberate influence - is indispensable and forms the basis of the vocal exercises, which aim at an expansion of the vocal range and opening of the resonance spaces, to the experience of the embodied voice. As a vocal coach, I also work on a connection of the speaking voice and singing voice, so that the voice can develop their richness of resonance and its carrying capacity. This is necessary so that the voice attains the necessary presence for the stage and in front of camera, and can produce quiet, sustained sounds as well as loud, emotional expressiveness. This is done in accordance with the physiological requirements, so that both: a preparation of specific characters, as well as an authentic performance on stage and in front of the camera is possible. Artificially created vocal techniques or blocking patterns prevent authentic processes and limit the vocal possibilities in the implementation of various roles. Therefore, the exemption from such patterns is a prerequisite for access to one's potential. In the text work it is then about integrating the pronunciation, articulation, speech melody, modulation, text design, role work and expression into the vocal process. The goal is to develop a transparent articulation by maintaining the voice quality without losing voice resonance. In this context we explore how the intention affects body tension and sound quality. A balanced state of body tension accompanies the mental process. The special requirements for stage actors as well as film actors are considered in the training. Castings, Auditions & Preparation Apart from the artistic abilities and musical performance many auditions and entrance examinations include tests for the vocal abilities and vocal stability of the participant. If a singers or actors voice does not appear strong and durable enough in the eyes (or ears) of the jury, it can be rejected as unsuitable for that profession. Actors or singers that give the impression that they could face a vocal break down after some weeks or months of intense, daily work, are seen as a risk and may not pass the audition for that reason. In preparation it is therefore recommended to let vocal stability and health be checked by an experienced vocal coach and get the relevant training beforehand to pass those tests successfully. This will also lay the ground for the actual work on the song or scene prepared for the audition. Here I guide you through all aspects: vocal presence and flexibility, the vocal expressions relevant for the character and scene s well as the vocal interpretation of songs. Under the guidance of a professional performance teacher you will also have the opportunity to work on your stage presence, presentation and relevant acting scenes.
VOICE TRAINING FOR PUBLIC SPEAKERS There are voices that we perceive as pleasant, which we like to listen to, that evoke emotional response or leave a lasting impression. Each vocal sound is individually shaped by the physiological conditions and the personal history. The effect of the voice on others, on our professional success and the effect of our mood on our voice is often underestimated. The voice is the immediate audible reflection of our state, one of the most direct means of communication available to us, the bridge between our thoughts and our environment. Does the voice in our professional or personal life reflect who we are or the person we want to be perceived as? Are self-image and public-image differing from each other? Luckily our voice can be trained and even changed. In professional life, voices that are anchored throughout the body often appear to be well-sounding, reliable and confident. Such voices are often described as clear, deep, strong or warm. This impression is not only due to the given pitch of the voice, but results from a combination of body, breathe and voice and is supported by an optimal posture, a balanced body tension state, free respiratory function and open resonance. Our voice appears particularly expressive when we are standing "behind it" with our body and inner attitude. Sometimes this condition is also described as speaking "from the gut". Behind this is a physiological, technical but also psychological process, that can be learned and practiced. An anchored, powerful voice influences presence, charisma and retrospectively changes self-esteem. The Voice Training In the voice training for speakers we first explore when and how the voice changes intentionally or unintentionally. We analyse the vocal self-image and public-image, examine respiratory patterns during speech as well as possible respiratory and vocal disorders. The exercises aim to develop a free and supported vocal sound that can effortlessly resonate with both loud and soft speech and can act appropriately. By incorporating exercises rooted in singing techniques, it is possible to develop a rich resonance and sustainability in some time. The physiological-functional approach that I offer enables a natural self-regulation of voice and breath as well as maintaining the health of the voice through the entire professional life. This is especially important when speaking over long periods of time is required. The challenges in everyday working life can have an impact on voice and breath as well. This is manifested, for example, by sensations of lack of breath, powerless dynamic or limited loudness, strained voice, hoarseness, a breaking voice in stressful situations or tightness in the throat. We solve these patterns in a regeneration phase supported by special exercises. This happens in harmony with the physiological prerequisites, so that successful communication is possible. Artificially created vocal techniques that merely simulate certain effects, prevent authentic processes as well as blocking patterns and limit the vocal possibilities. Therefore, the exemption from such patterns is important to access the vocal potential for a well-sounding voice. In addition, we work with breath and voice to use text elements in a creative way and increase their informative value. In the textual work, the pronunciation, articulation and expression then also have to be integrated into the vocal process. Here it is necessary to develop a transparent articulation and to maintain the voice quality without losing the voice resonance. In this context we explore how the intention affects body tension and sound quality. A balanced state of body tension accompanies the mental process. In the long term, we develop a professional speaking voice that transports content and statements in a coherent, effective and consistent manner with the intention of the speaker.
