We're happy to be returning with our ongoing vocal series. This is the first one Terri Hendrix will lead.

Here's her story about her voice. 

 

Terri uses all sorts of tools to get her voice to function. In this class, she'll provide a list of what works for her and what has been problematic. She'll also go through vocal exercises that have helped her mask her essential vocal tremor and vocal dystonia, online tutorials that have worked, and all of her research.

 

Get more power when you sing. Sing with less tension. Learn how to work out your voice so it's strong for a lifetime. Terri's not a vocal coach and does not usually offer vocal lessons. But this class will help you keep your voice safe and or set you on a path for wellness with your vocal folds. We welcome everyone including those with essential vocal tremor, spasmodic dysphonia, vocal atrophy, or weak voice to join us. It's gonna be a super interesting workshop!

About Terri Hendrix:

Recognized by Acoustic Guitar magazine as one of Texas’ 20 essential contemporary singer-songwriters, Terri Hendrix has earned fans worldwide for her singular fusion of folk, pop, country, blues, and jazz, delivered with poetic grace, melodic flair, and plenty of wit and wisdom. Along the way, she’s also co-written a Grammy-winning instrumental (the Chicks’ “Lil’ Jack Slade”), and garnered such honors as a star on the South Texas Music Walk of Fame, the Art of Peace Award by Saint Mary’s University in San Antonio, the Distinguished Alumni Award at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, and induction into the Women’s Hall of Fame in San Marcos, Texas. Her master recordings and archives are housed at the esteemed Wittliff Collections at Texas State University. Embodying Texas’ independent spirit, this classically trained vocalist and virtuoso guitar, mandolin, and harmonica player has done it entirely on her own, releasing every album since her 1996 debut on her Wilory Records label — often using a fan-financing model she developed years before crowdfunding arrived.

"The Artist Way," by Julia Cameron is not exclusively about writing! It is about discovering and developing the artist within whether a painter, poet, screenwriter or musician but it is a lot about writing. If you have always wanted to pursue a creative dream, have always wanted to play and create with words or paints, this book will gently get you started and help you learn all kinds of paying-attention techniques; and that, after all, is what being an artist is all about. It's about learning to pay attention." — Anne Lamott
