THE MCCLOSKY TECHNIQUE
The goal of the McClosky Technique is functional efficiency: coordinating the different parts of the vocal mechanism so that, whether in song or in speech, each part of the body is doing its proper job, with little or no effort wasted.
We teach a series of exercises to release counter-productive tensions, a stance that promotes efficient, easy breathing, and an easy onset of tone.
We do not diagnose or directly treat vocal disorders. Instead, we teach you how to use what you have as efficiently and effectively as possible. In many cases, the voice can be improved. And when poor vocal technique is at the root of the problem, improvements can be significant.
If you think you may have a vocal disorder, go to an otolaryngologist first. Once the doctor has given you a diagnosis, treatment plan, and permission to work with a voice teacher, then you may benefit from private sessions with one of us, or from taking one of our classes. Doctors and speech language pathologists often refer clients to us for technical work.
