Vocal Tai Chi is a form of freestyle, contemplative and high vibrational singing practice that is rooted in the principles and practices of Tai Chi, vocal improvisation techniques and spontaneous songs arising from this.
"It is a great joy to work with someone whose knowledge derives from their own experience rather than from received opinion and information." Sarah Kent -VTC meetup member.
The simple but profound art of vocal improvisation provides a new space for people in Vocal Tai Chi workshops to enter into the process from wherever they are along the path of music, voice, improvisation, breath, body and energy work.
Whether you are an experienced singer or a complete beginner, VTC offers a creative space for you to unfold your voice. You begin to create a wide ranging and unique vocal palette, covering ranges from the basement to the attic of your voice while integrating this with breath and movement.
Vocal Tai Chi is inspired by the vocal music of many world cultures.
As a new landscape of voice opens up to you spontaneous songs, often without words, appear - voicework that comes from within you - in the moment. The vocal practice is centered and grounded in especially composed backing tracks by Jenni and gentle and supportive movements rooted in Tai Chi.
Jenni Roditi GGSM, VMTR, MMus Dist offers simple and effective instructions drawn from a wide experience in leading voice work and music workshop sessions over three decades. Her own singing performances form the root of the inspiration to share this work with others.
