As singers, we often hear terms like belt voice and mixed voice but may not fully understand what that all encompasses. More and more singers are learning that there is a demand for this type of singing and that it’s important to approach these styles with safety in mind.  The goal of this masterclass is to encourage participants to discover how to make these sounds themselves in a friendly environment and leave with the tools to create a healthy and powerful performance for a demanding concert/show schedule.
