UPDATE: We have been badly hit by the pandemic. Only Ms Grace is available to teach currently . Her time is severely limited. As such, we are only taking in new students who are experienced voice professionals who would like to explore Jin Shin Jyutsu energy healing and its relation to the voice. Admission will be subject to interview. Children will not be considered. Thank you.
Vocalogy brings together the ancient traditions of the East and the scientific method of the West to address two of the hottest trends in vocal pedagogy today.
The biopsychosocial approach to the voice places the voice in the context of the mind-body connection. Nothing less than a holistic, multi-sensory music-making experience will do.
Our singers are elite vocal athletes. All elements of peak training, mental, emotional and physical, apply in our training.
We combine Jin Shin Jyutsu Physio-Philosophy holistic healing https://jsjinc.net (Eastern) and Brain-based Fitness https://bit.ly/3cEGhjX (Western) with Somatic Voicework functional voice training http://somaticvoicework.com.
Our teaching incorporates Music and Movement with Eastern martial arts and dance inspirations for a truly multi-cultural experience.

Functional Neurology: Better Brain, Better Voice
Neural Activation is about ‘waking up the brain’. Humans tend to be creatures of habit. We become better at what we like to do. Consequently, parts of the brain that are associated to activities that we don’t like to do, are under-used.
Waking up these parts through neural activation exercises results in better sensory processing. Better sensory processing contributes to faster speed, better flexibility and greater endurance in vocal tasks such as sustaining notes (endurance), runs (speed), and pitch and vocal registration changes (flexibility)
