Classes and workshops in France and UK (London)
Basic Course Content
In my classes after a short physical warm up we work with structured exercises and with group and individual improvisations. Students are invited to explore and develop:
– The voice’s roots in sung, spoken and preverbal sound.
– The dynamic sources of the voice in the body and in the imagination.
– Deep and ample breathing.
– The application of these discoveries to spoken and sung text.
– Listening actively to others.
– Learning some easy songs with 3 or 4 simple harmony parts.

6 DAY RESIDENTIAL WORKSHOP: 17 – 22 August 2019
VOICE-BODY INTENSIVE 36 hours
At the Hameau de l’Etoile (25km north of Montpellier)
in a wild and beautiful setting
(Intermediate / Advanced level)
This workshop is open to participants interested in the Wolfsohn/Hart approach to developing the range of vocal expression and who have some experience of voice and body work.
Neil Paris, performer, teacher and director of Smith Dancetheatre Company, will lead the workshop with Margaret.
This intensive workshop is practice-based. Guided by two very experienced and supportive teachers, participants will explore and develop awareness of the dynamic sources of the voice in the body and the imagination. Through the use of improvisations, disciplined and playful exercises this workshop aims to give access to the body as a vivid space of living vocal qualities. There will be focus on individual voices, texts and songs as well as group work, sounding and singing.
Awakening awareness of the body as a space of living qualities, frees the voice to become a medium for transmission, nourished and fuelled through genuine connections to its roots in the body.
Full board and lodging must be booked separately at the Hameau de l’Etoile, prices starting from 67€ per night. Participants will then be able to relax between classes in a beautiful, wild setting, enjoying comfortable accommodation, excellent food (full board) and unlimited use of the large swimming pool. (Having this time and space to absorb the day’s work, can be particularly helpful on such an intensive course.)
