What is Gender Affirming Voice Work?
Gender-affirming voice lessons provide an individual with exercises that are designed to help develop and support a voice that is in line with their gender expression and identity.
This can be done with the objective of "feminizing" or "masculinizing" your voice. Another option is to create a blend of both "masculine" and "feminine" voice qualities, creating an "androgynous" vocal profile.
I put the words "masculine" and "feminine" in quotation marks because many of these vocal qualities are based on the perception of gender and can easily be shifted through practice. At the end of the day, it is just important that your voice is your own and you have the tools to make that happen.
Gender-affirming voice lessons consist of exercises and activities that help you explore your voice and shape your vocal tract with control, avoiding tension and strain. The goal is to make your voice practice sustainable, mindful and empowering.
All individuals are welcome, I have experience teaching both cis and trans individuals. Lessons are open to anyone looking to build a relationship with their voice.
