I know what it's like to struggle for years and years in hopes of commanding the support, flexibility and stamina necessary to resonate freely.
I spent over 30 years singing and giving up, soul searching, "attitude adjusting", addressing my internal voice, singing and giving up, redoubling my effort to follow master teachers' time honored instructions in hopes that this time the best technique would work for me, and giving up again. Well meaning self help practitioners told me I'd have a world class career if I'd just get a handle on my resistant ego. I regularly found myself in pain (during and after singing), experiencing frequent emotional lows, and being vocally compromised for up to a week after every lesson, master class, rehearsal or performance. It was soul killing and career stalling.

It was clear that technique as traditionally taught and how my body works were out of alignment with each other.
I had to search "outside the box". The clues had to be there!
And they were - hidden in plain sight..
You see, my body can be described as hyper mobile. Mismanaged, this paradoxically causes imbalance and tension in my whole body and by extension in my vocal production.
Wait! Wait! Wait!
"Monica, what does this
have to do with me?!!"
What if I'm not hyper mobile?
I'm glad you asked.
My hyper mobility revealed what other vocalists are "getting away with".
Are you a
"HYPER MOBILE" VOCALIST?
Do you find it difficult to find a consistent stability as you pursue your fully, individually resonant sound?
Do you feel you may get side-lined
as just not having what it takes, not working hard enough, or having self-sabotage issues?
It's likely the elements of your vocal support are not being "normally" recruited and
you'll need to get your support in a different way.
