SOUND, VOICE, AND MUSIC FOUNDATION

Through an innovative, cross-cultural, and integral approach to awakening one's musicality, this weekly class will provide a framework for understanding how sound, voice, and music can affect one's state of consciousness, promote relaxation, and assist in the process of healing. Students will learn how to implement sound, the voice, and music for personal growth, and in a variety of clinical settings. This class will introduce techniques from The Yoga of Sound and the VoiceTM, a system for sound and voice development that incorporates breathing, tone range, and vocal practices including seed-sounds, invocations, lullabies, storytelling, jazz, choral singing, indigenous and classical styles, sacred mantras, and overtone singing, and devotional chanting from spiritual and shamanic traditions. Students receive music theory, improvisation, steps for cultivating intuitive playing skills, and instruction on the use of simple instruments.

One's musicianship will be enriched by integrating the contemplative to the expressive, the shamanic, and the ecstatic. Students will gain understanding of the use of sound in alternative medicine, as part of energy healing, music therapy, and as spiritual practice.
