The techniques she teaches will give you:
1. Dramatically Increased Range - by giving you the ability to sing higher and lower notes than you ever have before.
2. Amazing Breath Control - increasing power, length of notes and phrase, and control over dynamic nuance (loud and soft) and vibrato.
3. Full and Rich Tone - learning "open vowel" techniques that create gorgeous color and spread of the actual sound of your voice.
4. Control over your "Break" - (the spot in your voice where you transition between your "chest" voice and your "head/falsetto" voice) You will learn how to transition between the two registers seamlessly in addition to increasing your "chest" or "core" voice.
If you've ever felt like your voice was a beautiful bird locked in a cage, the Joy Graysen philosophy and techniques will open the door to that cage to free your voice allowing it to soar the way you've always dreamed it would.
