Harnessing Extended Vocal Techniques
PRICE: Pay What You Want
DATE: December 14 | 7:00 pm ET
DESCRIPTION: Learn the basics of expanding what your voice can do in a healthy way from "one of New York's most adventurous musicians" (NYT). This workshop offers tools for how to discover a wider range of vocal possibilities by focusing on extended vocal techniques such as ululation, multiphonics, overtones, ingressive singing, and vocal clicks - includes the wonderfully weird sounds that Bell performed in Broadway's Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812, Ghost Quartet, and This is Not a Land of Kings. All types of vocal performers, composers, and songwriters are welcome - no prior training is necessary.
