Releasing the singing voice

There are, of course, very good reasons why the voice doesn’t open like this all the time. If there are old emotional issues, bodily tensions, stress or a real fear of expressing ourselves, this can inhibit even professional singers from really letting go.
It takes courage, presence and openness to the process, to sing. Reaching those high notes can feel quite daunting and challenging and it can take a lot of trust in yourself to learn to master them!  Finding that courage is part of becoming the singer you want to be. It is exciting and very rewarding.

Some students have individual sessions purely for their personal development, to explore those challenges in speaking up and expressing themselves, Sandra is happy to work in this way too.
