Bridge Over Troubled Uvulas

Teaching resonance to a choir involves many words and sometimes many fewer results. Come find out how to do this easily and quickly with a choir of any age, using inexpensive materials and lots of laughter. This session will provide exercises and demonstrations that will release laryngeal tension, relax the vocal folds, improve breath flow and assist phonation. Find out techniques that students can do on their own to improve their sound safely and efficiently. Learn what a uvula is! Participants need to bring a pencil or pen, their own power supply (preferably a respiratory system), and a sense of humor.
