Acclaimed Paris-based choral and orchestral conductor and music therapist Martina Niernhaussen has been a frequent visitor to Cantóírí Choir over the past 10 years. This time we thought we’d share her!
In this 2-hour seminar, Martina will share her unique insights into unlocking the potential of your singing voice through an appreciation of vocal anatomy, breathing, posture, warm-ups, your singing resonators, singing and health.
