Individual Tuition

Instruction, exploration and discovery aligned to the vocal and energetic requirements of each individual. Everybody has an inherent vocal ability which is their natural birthright. However we often feel restricted in our confidence and ability to communicate with ease. We can become frustrated when we want to express emotion coherently and with clarity. Diverse activities such as singing or speaking or public speaking in a meeting and any spotlighted public appearances, can highlight the need to have a sound understanding of how your voice works. Professional singers can reach a plateau and require a more indepth understanding of their technique and the synthesis with their musicianship when performing challenging repertoire and dealing with vocal limitations.

Individual tuition for adults £85 per hour. For further information, enquiries about tuition for children and to book a session, please phone Martisse on 01892 752 237 or email alice.tierney.tw@gmail.com.

The Foundation Course

This profoundly rewarding course is in a modular format of ten weekends spread over a year. The aims of the course are to explore the benefits of conscious sound in healing and for personal integration - balancing physical ability and individual expression with an integrity and ease of communication.

The Foundation Course provides a solid foundation in discovering and claiming each individual’s true voice. The course emphasises the development of essential technical skills and vocal stamina, combined with a physical and energetic self-awareness. Each student focuses on developing a versatile and flexible vocal instrument and the self- responsibility to balance vocal expression so that using his/her voice is never at the cost of personal growth and stability, but a rewarding and joyous contribution to their whole life.

Ten intense and life-inspiring weekends held over a year, in an inspirational venue, soon to be announced. Explore within a small group, the inspirational and healing properties of each voice as a vibrational instrument of spirit.
