    Singing: Freeing the Singer's Voice

    Singing like Elton John requires a lot of time and patience. Because of this, The Linklater Center has created a workshop to start you on your way! Freeing the Singer's Voice is designed to help any level singer sing more expressively and aims to loosen and control your vocal chords, ensuring a full range of depth while singing. The workshop begins with exercises to develop resonance and loosen your throat, tongue, and jaw. Once loosened up, you'll begin range-building triads and arpeggios to stay loose. The final portion of the workshop consists of singing - harnessing your range and holding the depth and meaning behind your voice, as you express yourself via song. With this newfound control of voice, you'll be sure to rock your next shower jam session!

In addition to partying at Minton's Playhouse, you'll pay homage to some of the great musicians enshrined on the walls of the landmark Apollo Theater. While these two destinations are must-stops, your tour guide might elect to spontaneously divert you to one of the many local dive bars in Harlem if she catches word of an impromptu jam session breaking out that can't be missed. This is a Harlem experience you won't get through any travel book!
