The exercises of this system are aimed at releasing the voice from tension, at developing and strengthening it, primarily as a human tool and as an actor’s tool. It is, rather, the release of a natural voice, rather than the development of voice technology. (But I think that it will be very useful for the vocalists to get some relaxation, release from the clamps.)
The goal of the Linklater method is to force the intellect to form a voice in direct contact with emotional impulses, without being an obstacle. Since the sounding voice is the result of physical processes, the muscles of the body must be free of tension in order to become susceptible to the impulses of the brain that generate speech. The natural voice is most noticeably blocked and distorted by physical stress. He also suffers from emotional, intellectual, and emotional stress. All these interferences are of a Continue reading

You can get involved in singing at any age. It is desirable – in the young, even … in the womb (scientists have shown that the fetus responds to music by changing the rhythm of its heart!). Let the child “sleep at the piano” when parents play music. The future singer, even before the “adult” classes, it is desirable to form musically. This will accelerate future vocal-technical development. Children’s impressions are strong and create the foundation for the upcoming profession. Many prominent singers began to sing in the children’s choir, observing a moderate voice load. If after a mutation (in boys, in the process of maturation, the voice can become lower) a professional voice is formed, then singing in childhood will be a significant contribution to the formation of a vocalist.
