Somatic Voicework (TM) - The Lovetri Method

21st Century Vocal Training with Jeanie LoVetri!

If you have ever studied singing, you are probably familiar with the concepts of “breath support” and “resonance”. Those concepts go back to the earliest days of singing voice training in the 1800s. In more recent years you may have encountered methods that teach deliberate constriction, tension and squeezing as methodologies. It’s time for something really different.

Somatic Voicework™ The LoVetri Method is a body-based approach to training, incorporating a wide swath of new tools. It is aimed at those who sing and teach Contemporary Commercial Music.

Based on Ms. LoVetri’s more than four decades of experience as a singer and singing teacher, as well as her years of work with experts in voice medicine, vocal health, and research, it draws from multiple sources including traditional classical vocal pedagogy, theatrical speech work, age-based parameters and knowledge of many diverse musical styles.

Somatic Voicework™ increases auditory accuracy, kinesthetic awareness and personal satisfaction with the process of singing and facilitates balance in the voice and body. It uses clear, simple terminology, functional concepts and cultivates unique vocal expression in each singer.

Somatic Voicework™ was the first-ever course of Contemporary Commercial Music Vocal Pedagogy in the United States. Over 1500 teachers of singing, music educators, choral conductors, singer/songwriters, vocal coaches and singers of all styles have been through Somatic Voicework™ courses, in the USA, Canada, South America and, in 2017, Australia. The method avoids any and all manipulation of the structures within the throat and mouth.

All levels of teachers of singing are welcome, from beginners to those who are highly experienced, as the materials are flexible and adaptable to a variety of needs and populations. Ms. LoVetri will be assisted by Brenda Earle Stokes, who is trained in her method and has worked with her for over 12 years, and Heather Keens, who is an accomplished teacher, performer, and voice researcher and resident of Australia.
