About Wild Voice, Solid Roots
Vocal Improvisation is a thrilling, challenging, profound approach to singing. It’s not usual in UK music culture, but it is, I believe, both ancient and very contemporary. It can be applied to performance, recording, community music, music learning and teaching, ritual, personal growth and healing, spiritual life, nature connection, birth and death. Wild Voice Solid Roots focuses on cultivating vocal musicianship while making room for these other dimensions of the art form, building up rigorous technique and excellent musicianship, and supporting each student to further their personal path as a vocalist.
