SINGING WORKSHOP & MASTER CLASS
17-18 JUNE 2017 in HANNOVER

With BiPTM Voice Training

AN INVITATION

I am delighted to invite you to a singing workshop and master class that will be given by Helene Lux Dryselius, Certified Course Instructor in BiPTM Voice Training, from Stockholm, Sweden. This two-day course addresses singers and teachers who:

  • Are experiencing or have experienced voice problems, have tried different methods and have not yet found a satistying solution to these problems, or
  • Are experiencing limits to their vocal capacities and are looking for new ways to expand these capacities, or
  • Are curious to broaden their knowledge and to learn about a method that is based on a more body-connected technique.
BiPTM VOICE TRAINING

The BiPTM, short for Balance in Phonation, consists of 5 fundamental functional elements (see further details below):

  • The balanced posture,
  • The difference between normal and phonation breathing,
  • The collaboration of four diaphragms,
  • The functional reactions and natural reflexes in voice production and
  • The functional separation of articulation and phonation.
YOUR GAINS

According to our experience from previous courses, we can describe some of the gains that you will obtain from participating to the course:

  • An optimal body balance that will allow you to reach a voice range and quality that you may not have known so far,
  • An encounter with the autonomous breathing and the difference between normal breathing and phonation breathing,
  • The distinction between active reactions respectively autonomous reflexes for voice production,
  • A softer voice that sounds natural due to the separation of the phonation and the articulation,
  • A discovery of your own unique voice in a respectful, safe and empowering environment,
  • A holistic method that ensures a healthy, sustainable and stable use of your voice, regardless of how long you have to sing.
THE BALANCE IN PHONATION VOICE TRAINING (BiPTM) IN MORE DETAILS
The BiPTM is derived from the old bel canto tradition and developed by the Finnish voice therapist and pedagogue Ritva Eerola from Finland and its goal is to develop every singer’s unique voice. By balancing the posture and defining the autonomous body work, the BiPTM achieves balance in phonation, which in BiPTM equals to an optimal relation between the adduction of the vocal folds and the subglottal pressure. When this is happening, the vocal folds begin to vibrate with smaller pressure and, hence, the same air pressure can achieve larger vibration and more volume in the voice. The vocal folds adduct faster and the glottis closes tighter. The onset of the voice starts softer which is a premise for stable vocal folds and a sustainable voice.
By defining and understanding the autonomous function „phonation-breathing“ the „appogiatore“, or support, will be connected deeper into the body and hence relieve the pressure from the vocal folds and the larynx area. Through this connection, the bel canto criteria, „inhalare la voce“, „mezza di voce“ and „chiaroscuro“ are possible to achieve in a healthier way. This is the technique used by the old singers from the „golden era“ and we all appreciate their rich timbre and their softness in the vibrato, which they reached without vocal fatigue.
BiPTM will also be presented at the large International Congress for Voice Teachers (ICVT) that takes place in Stockholm in August 2017, see www.icvt2017.com.
