THE SINGING BODY Workshop, specifically for singers, focuses on the physicality of singing. Learn how to bring more vitality and freedom into your singing by freeing the body. Dynamic coaching by an outstanding bodyworker who is also a holistic vocal coach, Richard Gordon, will make this an experience that makes a lasting impression. He uses his well-studied background in Feldenkrais, Alexander and other bodywork and movement modalities, along with his innate intuitive skills and understanding of anatomy, to support the singer in finding freedom with their singing.  Elena Greco brings her holistic approach to healing to singing, as well, and will present ways to be fully present in the body, even in the face of performance anxiety, and bring a relaxed, focused mind and energetic physical presence to singing. Everyone will have an opportunity to sing and to receive coaching if desired. Auditors in the vocal music field are welcome, as well.

As guest artist, he has conducted performances or led masterclasses in body awareness for singers at Westminster Choir College, Shenyang Conservatory (China) and Dalien Music Conservatory (China), among other institutions. Also a vocal coach and arranger, Richard has a special gift for bringing out the very best in singers and instrumentalists.
