FINDING YOUR OWN VOICE
This workshop provides an intimate group setting where people can share their thoughts and ideas about their experience using their voice. We will discuss common thoughts as concerns associated with singing, followed by standard breathing exercises, stretches, warm up exercises, and then create group harmony, and finally improvisation. In the end we will create our own song, where each voice can be heard, exclaimed, fully expressed or even shouted! Come share your thoughts, notes, song, and find your own beautiful, natural singing voice from within.
LeeLoo is an active performer, singer, dancer and graduate of Berklee College of Music. She has fronted several Boston bands, toured the Northeast, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, and has written several albums. Among many of the competitions and battle of the bands festivals she has participated in, she also took part in American Idol in 2010 and The Voice in 2013.
LeeLoo discovered her love for music and singing at the age of 5, taking parts in many musical theater shows, while gaining a foundation in classical music, and learning songs in 4 different languages. She also has a tremendous dance background having performed in The Nutcracker through Joseph Stanford Ballet Company at age 7. However, as she grew up her passion for music superseeded dance and she followed her voice. She was chosen to sing the “National Anthem” at Shea Stadium in NY, and was chosen to open Adelphi University’s Matriculation ceremonies as the college’s official anthem singer.
Later, she wanted a complete musical make-over, and attended Berklee College of Music, to study contemporary styles including, pop, rock, metal, jazz, blues and R&B. She studied under Gabrielle Goodman, back-up singer to Aretha Franklin and Chaka Khan. Diversity, versatility, and pushing the limits in edgy genres of music have been her primary focus.
LeeLoo draws from a wide range of influences that make her the versatile artist she is today, including metal, R&B, jazz, classical, pop and rock. She continues to work with many different artists, either coaching them on their own albums in the studio, or recording vocal tracks for various records. She is also a singer/song-writer and is available to WRITE, COACH, COLLABORATE OR RECORD on virtually ANY music projects you have to offer.
She will be available for teaching group vocal workshops, performances with Incus, drum circle jams, and general consultation about anything regarding your voice!
