Ms. Caplan draws upon many diverse disciplines in her approach to teaching voice. Her innovative use of physical alignment, exercise, and nutrition help to build and maintain a healthy instrument. Yoga, breathing, and relaxation techniques, along with Alexander and Linklater philosophies, are also explored regularly. Vocal exercises, tailored to the individual student, strengthen the larynx, vocal cords, release the tongue and Jaw, yielding increased range and flexibility.
Specialized master classes and workshops provide a supportive group dynamic for singers, dancers and actors to further develop their craft. The workshops provide the performer with: physical and vocal warm-ups for auditions, studio sessions and performances, relaxation techniques for nervousness, emotional connection to the song, improved body language and focus and connection to the breath.
