The Voice is the Muscle of the Soul 

This short phrase eloquently sums up the practical philosophy of Richard Armstrong’s 40-plus years of work on human sound: the voice as a manifestation of the psyche. The conscious return to the uninhibited sounds of the newborn baby, with its dynamic unraveling of the repression imposed by the conditions of growing up, leads to an unchained voice.

This 6-day voice workshop will focus on exploring and expanding vocal range and character, with an emphasis on good use of breath, body alignment, and physical grounding, as well as on the connection between the voice and the personality of each participant. The workshops will include the development of original material through improvisation with scenes, text, scores, songs, and space.
