Having a reliable technique for any craft is key to the success of achieving a natural effect. Observers would say “that’s effortless” or ask “how do they make that look so easy?”
When it comes to voice, there is no other instrument that could be more holistic. So why not adopt an approach to singing or performing that is as simple and spontaneous as everyday speech?
No matter whether your goal is to build presence, cultivate connection, or enhance your vocal projection and range, aiding the discovery and expansion of one’s potential is a passion that Maurice doesn’t get enough of. You will find him in recent years as a voice tutor and coach imparting the craft of obtaining unparalleled vocal freedom and range of expression for individuals of varying backgrounds and skill levels – it’s never restricted to only singers, anyone can benefit from growing their vocal stature and profile. We all have to use our voice after all!
His method hones in on the mind-body connection and isolates the difference between “habitual” and “natural”. As we grow out of infancy, conditioning, peer pressure and self-consciousness have a direct impact on our physical being and subsequent breath. All of this is then exacerbated by the mental blockages and anxious thoughts that invade our minds. And what does this then affect? Our voice.
Tense body, tense breath – tense voice. No rocket science here!
But it’s not only what Maurice shares which makes the big difference. It’s the open, supportive, and honest environment he offers to optimise your progress and fortify awareness without the need to ruminate over complicated jargon and “exclusive” concepts. It doesn’t matter if you’re seeking to be the best belter in your karaoke gang, the boardroom speaker who presents mic-less, the consultant who aims to better land their message with clients, or the pro singer who sings hours on end free of tension, your goals and needs are specific to you. And it doesn’t need to be a strenuous process, but rather one that is productive and effective. Why work harder when you can work smarter?
There’s no cookie cutter method, quick gimmickry or unrealistic expectations when you work with Maurice besides receiving his undivided attention and acknowledgement of both your achievements and obstacles. What’s more, you’re working with someone who has practical experience in the performance arena who knows how to translate this knowledge into practice and instil enlightening perspectives. More importantly, he will help you discover the importance of emotion and its effect on the voice and how it plays as a major vessel in evoking command and connection with others.
