John Norton is a professional singing coach and singer and wishes to inspire individuals to open their own singing voice, stimulate their resources and allow their singing voice to release and flourish over time:
„We all possess a voice and by extension our singing voice is an extension of our speaking voice. Singing is a full body experience that engages all the known areas of our mind, body, spirit, energies and emotions.
These sessions unlock and develop your own abilities to know yourself better, know what your voice can do, understand better the sensations around singing and better understand how your body supports and works with your voice sustainably. Singing has been known to help address depression, motivation, wellbeing, concentration, stamina, and mental resilience to name a few.
Additionally, you take away some valuable tools, exercises and expertise that can be used anywhere whether you are at home, on holiday, in a choir or together in groups.
Wishing you inspiration, fun and good healthy voices!“
