"The Basics of Singing for Non-Singers" 3 Week Course with Susan Baum: The Personal Trainer for the Voice
Saturday, September 28, 2019, 2:00pm
Created especially for the Actors Connection, this series of classes is an expanded version of Susan’s recent Free Seminars. The sequence will give you a sense of your own vocal anatomy and how to use your breath for both acting and singing. It will ground you in the exercises she uses to train the larynx in strength and stamina. You will leave the class with a comprehensive, reliable warmup for your voice, and a clarity about how singing training can be beneficial to your career — not to mention your health and well-being. And it’s FUN, too!
Since 1999, Susan has been teaching singing to a wide variety of clients — male and female, from age ten to ninety-something, beginners and pros alike. Based on the principles of classical work begun by the inventor of the laryngoscope Manuel Garcia in the 1800s, she has developed a more contemporary approach to exercising the vocal apparatus, which behaves very much like muscle tissue. Through a variety of simple exercises routinely applied (like push-ups or tummy crunches), anyone can improve the tonal quality and facility in use of the voice. To mark the Twentieth Anniversary of her Studio, Susan is preparing her technique for publication.
Before opening her Studio, Susan had a successful career as a performer in musical theatre and television commercials. She also occupied interesting positions with a number of film and tv companies such as the BBC and Children's Television Workshop (now known as Sesame Workshop). She holds a degree in Education from the University in Florida, which she credits for her singular focus on lifelong learning.
