Learning to release unhelpful physical tension is key. Every day we carry around huge amounts of tension in our shoulders, necks and jaws, which affects vocal production.

Nerves can make this even worse!

Freeing the tension results in more efficient use of breath and greater stamina when speaking.

The exercises I use can be repeated throughout the day and it is easy to make them part of your routine.

In our sessions I will show you several different techniques that will help you to release, and eventually eliminate, unhelpful tension.
