Voice time for all - with Uli Führe

Voice training and singing
for music teachers and choir leaders from children's choirs to church choirs

With suitable canons we expand the possibilities and stylistics of the voice. These are canons penned by Uli Führe that bring people together, are both playful and witty, and fulfill the range from classical approach to popular music. Simple choral settings expand the program.

In this workshop, we will first do a thorough embodiment. Then the voice will be built up little by little. In particular, the six articulation gates (according to Sundberg) will be examined for their tonality. When do you use which resonance spaces and how do you do it?

At the same time, everything is always tested and implemented on respective short pieces. Methodically we work with the Stimmicals. Multi-voice singing in, where technique meets sensuality and joy.

A folk song requires a different vocal fit than a pop song, a classical movement a different mouth opening than a gospel. We learn all this effortlessly and with a lot of humor. How do you deal with modal voice, middle register and head voice?

And the whole thing is always done with the supreme commandment: the voice must always be fine. No one should ever become hoarse!
