David's vocal lessons and workshops are unlike any other. You will learn his groundbreaking discoveries on the effects life-based physical tensions have on vocal production, the support system (appoggio) and your respiratory system. His innovative and revolutionary process reverses these tensions, uncovering a more free, powerful, resonant voice than many ever thought possible. The integration of Bel Canto singing techniques, restorative yoga, movement entrainment, functional core support system work and breath therapy make his workshops an unforgettable experience. The Wilson Method for Voice is for all singers, from beginner to professional.
We are all born singers. Societal conditioning says otherwise. Therefore there is no such thing as a vocal problem - vocal pathology is symptomatic of issues elsewhere. Virtually all vocal problems are related to physical tension, postural issues, respiratory distress, doubt, fear and lack of permission. Therefore we should be looking to the respiratory system, diaphragm, posture, fascia and thought processes first, and the larynx last. The Wilson Method is in the process of revolutionizing the art of teaching singing.
There is too much efforting going on in singing and in singing lessons. Singing should feel easy - like the song is being pulled out of you... like you have no choice but to pour forth your ease of expression. This process is only work if we make it so.
Singing is much easier and more rewarding than it often feels. Stop trying to fit in or trying not to stick out. Stop holding back, give yourself permission to let go, and singing turns into a joyful imperative.
We are all holding our breath and tightening our sixpacks to deal with the rigors of life. These actions affect our voice and ability to express. Fix these issues, and we find the Big Voice was always there, just waiting to be unleashed.
