Somatic Voicework™ is a body-based method of vocal pedagogy that incorporates physical awareness, aural acuity, kinesthetic development and vocal freedom. It is supported by voice science, vocal hygiene and medical information. It promotes technical security, stylistic accuracy and personal satisfaction. It honors the wholeness of healthy vocal use and the individuality of every vocal artist. It was developed to address contemporary commercial music but encompasses all styles. Past participants have come from all vocal disciplines and nearly every state as well as 13 foreign countries. Participants have remarked that the work is different, new, unique, powerful, honest and open-hearted.
The three-tiered course of LoVetri’s method, Somatic Voicework™, is comprehensive but accessible to everyone from singers not yet teaching to those with decades of experience. Vocal function is clearly explained, and the exercises presented are designed to empower teachers to create solutions for a wide variety of pedagogical needs. Since 21st-century music continues to diversify, the need to understand vocal function, vocal health and voice science has never been greater, and new tools are needed to supplement those that were used for the past two hundred years. These tools are found in Somatic Voicework™. There is no special jargon, nothing to prepare, and it avoids any direct manipulation of the structures in the throat. It has the honor of having had 12 nationally recognized laryngologists as lecturers and four highly acknowledged speech language pathologists as faculty over the past decade. The training days are filled with information, demonstration and application balanced with camaraderie, networking and social interaction among participants at all levels.
