AudioVocal/AudioInstrumental Course - AVAI
Spoken-singing Voice and Instrumental Sound
from 21 to 23 April 2017 in Verona
An AudioVocal/AudioInstrumental Course in accordance with the Tomatis Method will be held in Italy, one in July in Verona by Dr. Concetto Campo.
The AVAI is based on Tomatis studies on the function of the phonatory organ and the instrumentalist's motricity under maximum performance and minimum effort conditions. The AVAI helps to put into practice all that Tomatis discovered in his over fifty years of clinical and didactic work with opera singers, instrumentalists, actors, orators and monks who use the Gregorian chant.
The course is open to all those who desire to perfect their own vocal potential simultaneously carrying out a personal growth study by working with the voice in accordance with the discoveries made and put into practice by Dr. Alfred Tomatis.
It is a practical course that aims at helping the student to use his own vocal potential and instrumental potential in a more complete manner by means of particular exercises especially formulated by Dr. Tomatis in order to rediscover one’s own voice and a more economic and efficient personal motricity when playing an instrument.
The AVAI helps to use better your body-instrument to produce a better quality sound with your voice and with your music instrument.
A better use of the body in producing sound leads to a reduction in vocal and playing instrument effort and consequently the voice becomes softer and less tired and musical expression is more fluent and simple. This makes speaking a pleasure while the listener’s attention is held longer. The singer increases the possibility of emitting a quality sound with less effort. The musician improves the mastering of the instrument and the quality of the sound produced with less effort.
The use of bony sound leads to a reduction in vocal effort and consequently the voice becomes softer and less tired and expression is more fluent and simple. This makes speaking a pleasure while the listener’s attention is held longer. The singer increases the possibility of emitting a quality sound with less effort.
