Looking forward to my lesson with Leland this evening. Haven’t gotten around to asking him more in-depth questions about freeing the voice — in particular, ones related to The Whispered ‘Ah,’ an Alexander exercise I’ve read about but don’t quite grasp. As I’ve said, as a singer I’d like nothing more than to get out of my own way — but I did read one of Leland’s articles that dealt with the topic. I do often experience tension in my jaw while singing, and suspect that I could achieve far greater vocal resonance were I to lose whatever habits I’ve developed unknowingly.
Staying open to the possibility of a new awareness.
