Kathryn Armour has integrated her knowledge of the Alexander Technique into her voice training. She can help a singer find structural support in standing and movement. Through this, a singer can find freedom, ease, and truthfulness.
Kathryn helps the beginning singer develop good technique—physically, vocally and musically. She enjoys helping an advanced singer eliminate unhelpful or unhealthy habits, solve problems which have crept into their work, or resolve repertoire challenges.
Kathryn approaches each person and each voice individually. She was trained in Italy, and uses the Italian understanding of “one voice,” rather than the typical head voice/chest voice dichotomy.
Kathryn’s students learn physical coordination, the balance of the larynx and the breath, and clear vowel production. These principles can be applied to whatever music the singer chooses.
There are many benefits to working in this integrated and artistic way, but perhaps the most important is that you can integrate your singing and acting. You can communicate, and not be featuring your “vocal technique.” You will find your authentic expression, your “own” voice.
My summer programs are an ideal opportunity to work with me if you do not live in New York City or Wilmington. They provide an intensive, safe and aesthetic environment to make vocal change, without having to leave your current teacher.
