Exquisite Resonance


Exquisite Resonance

For singers, speakers, and instrumentalists.

Saturday April 20⁠
2pm-5pm Pacific/ 5-8pm Eastern⁠
*This workshop will be recorded if you are unable to attend live.

“What others do with effort, I do with resonance.”

From the most thundering reverberation to the most gossamer pianissimi, resonance is the essence of singing.⁠

When we learn how to call up instantaneous, omni-dimensional resonance we shake each other’s bones. We light up each other’s cells.⁠
We make exquisite singing almost effortless.⁠

No fatigue. ⁠
No pushing.⁠
No pitchiness.⁠

Just a full rainbow of sound.⁠

In this workshop, we will look at the nature of vibration, amplitude, and tuning.⁠

You will learn how the design of your instrument (vocal or otherwise) is conducive to optimal resonance by its nature.⁠

You will learn how to instantly cultivate full-spectrum resonance.⁠

You will learn about the pitfalls of over-brightening or over-darkening, and how to adjust resonance qualities as desired, without contrivance. ⁠


I will individually coach you on precisely what you can do to make every sound fully potentiated, fully rung, fully present, and fully felt.⁠

(I will also teach you how to sound like you never breathe, even though you will be able to breathe anytime you want.)
