The Progressive Singer's Workshop
by Press Release

Tamara Anderson once again brings her exciting, cutting-edge, Grammy award winning vocal techniques to the public. THE PROGRESSIVE SINGER'S WORKSHOP will help give you new vocal and emotional freedom, get you in touch with your creative inner-self, while greatly improving the quality of your voice. Tamara's excellent sense of humor and light-hearted touch will guide you beyond the vocal and mental barriers that may presently be holding you back, or teach you advanced vocal skills depending on your level of singing. This workshop is for beginners to working professionals. You will find this an enjoyable, non-threatening and extremely supportive environment. You will conquer inhibitions and develop the ability to move others with the power and beauty of your voice-even if you never thought you could sing! THE PROGRESSIVE SINGER'S WORKSHOP includes step-by-step instructions addressing the issues that a singer encounters on a daily basis: proper breathing, vocal range, technique to keep the voice connected and seamless, (getting those high notes!), and performance anxiety. You will leave the workshop with a greater understanding and feeling of this incredible instrument, your voice, as well as feeling great about yourself and your performance ability.
