Welcome to The Musical Body!
Exploring the spaces between life and musical Improvisation. The Musical Body provides a space to cultivate vitality through improvised singing and explore the spaces between life and music.
The Musical Body connects you to your body, voice, place & other people. Through a multi-faceted and responsive process; you cultivate presence, spontaneity, musicality and courage as you develop and transform through your creative-expressive voice. The Musical Body takes place in weekly classes, weekend workshops, residentials, private sessions along with organisations and community groups and events.
Each class is different and drenched in music, nourishment, play and community. In each workshop; there are elements of conversation, somatic practices, voice exploration and processing, reflection, instrumental play, responses to music, body, breath, stories, spoken word and imagination, and the opportunity to co-create something that’s never been made before, express and explore.
You may be an artist, musician, painter, visual artist, dancer, mover, writer, community worker, mother, father, therapist, teacher, or car/shower singer. You may want to create social change, connect to feelings, people and place.
