Her training interest is to help her students rediscover all the parts of the unique instrument we’ve all got within us, the human voice. Margaret’s training emphasis is in mechanics, voice science, as well as playful and primal sounds, which helps students regain their performer’s impulse, remove mental blocks and be able to utilise fully the entire musical and emotional range of the voice, just as nature intended.
