Freeing Your
Natural Voice

with Anne Louise White

Our bodies were built for singing, for dancing and movement. Sometimes we bury these natural abilities under a lifetime of acquired habits and constraints. When we become aware of those habits that limit freedom of expression and shed those inhibiting patterns, we can regain our inherent flexibility.

Anne Louise White offers individual and group voice lessons. Inexperienced singers will quickly be singing with ease and confidence. Experienced singers can learn vocal techniques that will improve their projection, resonance and performance skills.

During voice instruction we can explore:

  • Breathing without tension
  • Maintaining physical ease as we sing
  • Moving through our full vocal range
  • Musical phrasing and song interpretation
  • Vocal projection and resonance
  • Ear-training
  • Performance skills
  • Building your repertoire

“My approach to teaching voice includes body and voice integration, drawing on elements of Alexander Technique and Feldenkrais to focus on breath, ease of movement and a supported, natural vocal tone.”

Anne Louise is experienced in coaching singers in a variety of musical genres including jazz, folk, pop, gospel and classical.
