Oh my gosh! I didn’t see this reply. Thank you so much Kat <3
I do do a lot of Italian vowel work with her – and she is a very smiley individual haha 🙂 So we work a lot with yawny, relaxed facial expressions in warm-ups to try and stretch out any tightness that she may be creating in her every day life.
She used to be very quiet and sigh-y but I’ve managed to get her singing at a varied dynamic range which is brilliant. Her posture and breath control are also really strong now and pitch wise, she’s always on the money! It’s just her tone that I worry about.
I have thought about inspiring her with a few lower tone voiced singers like Des’ree, Lorraine Ellison and Anna Calvi. Have you found this to be a useful tool in the past?
You super star, thank you as always x
