Discover your voice with Josephine
In my practice, I work with actors to open to their singing voice whether it is familiar or a new exploration! My lessons invite folx to make space for joy and gentleness, rather than rigidity. Singing is allowed to be fun and playful and I hold my students in deep encouragement. I believe strongly in the therapeutic benefits of singing and voice work, as this practice is a way of connecting deeply with ourselves and our bodies. I am currently a student of various movement and somatic psychology modalities and love to educate my students about the way that the nervous system impacts our bodies as actor/singers. There is empowerment to be found in finding greater space in our bodies to express ourselves through music!
