Amazing voice, ease, total engagement... Lindsay Mendez.

NEW SONG!! We were so honored to be able to work with Lindsay Mendez on this song -- she's such a brilliant actor and singer and we're over the moon with the amount of emotional vulnerability and storytelling she brought to this recording.

Same goes for the incredible band who sound fantastic. And a special shout-out to Payson Lewis, who did an awesome job recording the video. Hope you enjoy!

I've been working with over 200 singers over the past year in sessions, workshops, lessons, and classes-- and there are so many different objectives! Live performance, musical theatre, songwriting, recording, pure fun, concerts, choirs and more, and they all require some real planning and thinking to achieve the desired expression. Making an objective - recording, performance, new songs, new styles, or just singing everyday - can make such a difference - and also, making your statement known is so valuable.

The evening will be a combination of you singing, processing, and discovering possibilities and creating objectives for the coming year. $15 commitment requirement!

With my other work in creativity coaching/ and in my own work, I've always found that concrete objectives and a strategy always make the dream into the possible. I'll have a few templates and guidelines to offer, and also welcome new possibilities.

This is it. Want to sing...?

Whether you like it or not this satiric and extreme representation she is one of the most talented and refined singers of our time. Being able to sing with such perfection notes with those so dissonant chords and with absolutely unusual and so distant intervals is not for everyone. Listen to her, how she is immense!

A Glorious Week of Singers: Opera to pop, Musical to Blues!! Tapings for auditions, technique dives, song prep, exploration of form.... You singers are too fabulous!
August 21st! Singer's Workout 4-6 at Sacred Fools. Must email to reserve a spot: [email protected] Come try out your voice (new song, old, audition) SING small.jpg SF singers...This Wednesday - 4-6. Black Box. No charge I do lots of workshops/coaching and some college workshops in the singland. But one thing that I've been doing for 2 years is a regular weekly 'workout': usually a focus on some particular aspect of technique - and then a chance for all participants to present one song for the group (mic/no mike). Physical-vocal warm up and then about 10 minutes per person, and then depending on the numbers, everyone does there song again. DM -- I try to limit to 10 max...would love to hear your voices as I start to get future projects together.... Sign Up! [email protected]
Challenge of the Day. 10 minute vocal warm up...this one is simple, but effective!
An amazing audition...unique rendition of "Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing" Savannah!

Speaking of Your Voice: 3 tips for accessing your sound... 1) Experience your relaxed speaking voice: no whispers, no strain -the voice resting in a comfortable present way with friends 2) When you note this, engage your abdominal muscles in a light laugh - not forced - and feel the connection between source and sound 3) Keep the relaxed and the support, and do your vocal exercises without adding tension. Let that 'laughing relaxed sensation' move through your resonance areas and experience that free voice (without all our usual constraints!)
Sound Lesson #1: you may already know this, but finding your tone in a unpushed volume, but not whispered, is the best place to start. Your voice is literally an instrument buried in you body, so to optimally finesse the instrument, it's best to let go of tension, and find that unique pure sound that is yours. Without the frills, the face, the strain - or finding ways to hide! Sometimes when we do this, it doesn't sound like you to the outside ear - because you're used to manipulating, or pushing or straining...but letting this resonance happen is key to building your real tone!
REHEARSE, RECORD, PERFORM! Hey All - Are you down or up to sing??!! There's people ready to start up in the New Year, with an eye toward getting songs recorded and with a final performance night. This Is The Time! Another 6 week session coming up - and looking at a couple of different times: Seems like Wednesday or Thursday Evening are the best times, starting the week of January 21st. Session Cost is $375, and we will record one song in class with tracks, but we will also have the opportunity to do a 'studio day' for additional fee (depending on the number of students enrolled and the musicians). A performance would also be scheduled - with musicians! - for an invited audience at the Lyric Hyperion or other theatre depending on schedule. I'm leaning towards the Wednesday night...but open to the crowd suggestion! And Singers Workout folk continue to cast and sing around town...La La La! Would love to hear you swinging and singing through! Brenda Singers' Workout LA 213-399-2006
