Singing my way out of muddles

It looks as thought this will be my online home for a while yet.  Here’s a song I’ve just written, it’s my version of a Stoical take on life, Jim, as we know it.

And she’s back again

Problems over at my fully-grown-up website, so I’ll hang out here for a while till it’s fixed. Hacked! At my time of life!! Who knew?  And it wasn’t Being in Voice that was hacked, but my jewellery website, so the server has shut all of my sites down till its fixed.

Liverpool is on its best behaviour this morning, blue sky, seagulls chirping (as against howling), traffic fairly quiet, so I’m going to get my head down to prepare for the Voice of the Clown – Literally! workshop that I’m running at the end of the month for Edgehill University’s Clown Symposium.

Weird noises are bound to ensue – if they’re not weird they are just what we do ordinarily, and who want an ordinary clown?

Warm Up Your Voice with an App

Being in Voice, the Warm up App, is now available for download, here in the App Store, in iPhone and iPad versions.

I am very excited about this, because it means everybody with an iPhone or iPad can now enjoy warming up their voices gently and safely, whether they want to use the voice for speaking or singing, professionally or for fun. The warm ups are suitable for beginners, and for experienced professional voice users (actors, singers, choristers, public speakers, teachers, lawyers, politicians, entrepreneurs, startups, 5 minute pitchers).

The App contains the Mini Vocal Warmup, my own short and snappy version of the Vocal Function Exercises. This warmup takes less than a minute, yet it contains all the elements for a full training program. Once you have learnt this warmup, you will be able to extend it into your own personalised, dynamic, Vocal Gym.

4%22 retina display welcome

PreparationThe General Vocal Warmup is the full set of Vocal Function exercises, plus a resonance and articulation workout.  There are audio files, with me talking you through the exercises, and documents with lots of information about how to prepare your body and your breath for vocal training, and about the voice and speech.  Not bad for $0.99! Enjoy.

2011 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,300 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 22 trips to carry that many people.
