Using experiential exercises, anatomical studies, and journal processes, this course will improve students' kinesthetic awareness and conceptual understanding of the process of respiration as it relates to movement and vocal production. Through experiential explorations of breathing students learn to sense, feel, and differentiate the physical components of respiration. As they improve their kinesthetic understanding of breathing, their ability to use breathing responsively and appropriately for the vocal task will improve. Additionally, students will become better able to respond to directions about breathing from private lesson teachers. Classwork will consist of experiential Awareness Through Movement lessons with some time for discussion.
