Core Concepts

Anatomy & Function | Breath Intake | Zones of Pressure | Phonation & Movement

  • Students are invited to explore the relationships between the voice and surrounding anatomical structures. The educational portion of this course puts into layman's terms the relationships between the voice, body, and breath.

  • Exploring the current quality of one's breath is key to warming up the body and voice. Through visualizations and keen awareness practice, students deepen their mind-body relationship through breath.

  • Healthy phonation occurs through proper management of breath pressure within key anatomical regions. Students will explore breath practices within each zone of respiration.

  • The pinnacle learning objective in Vocal Warm-Ups is to integrate phonation and refined movement patterns with dynamic breathing. Improving the movement competency between each respiratory zone and support breath pressure ensure the vocal folds are acclimatized, pliable, and primed for injury prevention and long-term vocal health.
