Fantastic New Sense of Freedom

Fantastic New Sense of Freedom

My Focused Voice Session with David has had a profound effect on my singing. Before my first session, I had been struggling with recording a high vocal. After our session, I was able to record it with complete ease. I was able to sing much higher than usual (up to an Ab which is thrilling for this alto!), and felt a fantastic new sense of freedom in my voice that has continued even until now, more than a month later. David’s intense work addressed the source of the tension (not just the peripheral, outer muscles), starting with my abdomen area and a loosening of rib tension, and finishing with a gentle massage behind the voice box itself! Our sessions are not only physical experiences, but intellectual ones as well that extend into my daily vocal practice and teaching. David’s kind and highly detailed explanations of the body and what he’s doing give me a new understanding of myself and my anatomy. Specifically, his visual description of the diaphragm and how it moves with the breath helps me literally every day. I honestly didn’t know that this kind of focused massage work was possible, and I’m so glad to have found David.
