Your Brain Sings Before You Do
Train your brain,
train your voice
Neuro-Vocal Method gets you high, loud, healthy, forever singing.
Author and voice expert Meredith Colby teaches groups and private clients, in person and online.
Her approach is rooted in science and physiology, exploiting her awareness that improving singing quality often requires changes in the brain, not just the voice. Showing a gift for exposition, her relatable analogies give the singer an understanding of the “why” beneath the “how.” Her method asks singers to focus on physical sensation in order to create new neural pathways -- in a sense, improving singing by feeling.
