In this 2-hour Experiential Learning workshop, participants will playfully explore a “Whole Self” approach to Belting and unlock new possibilities in their singing through a series of acoustic, functional, skeletal, and expression-based lessons. 

We can do this in 2 ways:

1. Singers in person will use “Let it Be” by the Beatles as a vocal reference

2. Singers on Zoom may could sing whatever solo song choice they like

Singers are encouraged to arrive in comfortable clothes, bring water to drink, and if they have the ability to take off their shoes that would be great (but can be worked around if not possible)

Kevin Michael Murphy (He/They) is a NYC based voice teacher and the co-founder of the NYC Vocal Studio. Murphy's students regularly appear in Broadway shows/National Tours, on TV competitions like American Idol, and in cabaret and concert venues all over the world. Murphy spent a decade on the voice faculty of NYU Steinhardt teaching both undergraduate and graduate musical theatre and vocal pedagogy majors. Murphy holds a B.M. in musical theatre from James Madison University, a M.A. in vocal performance from NYU, completed a three-year mentorship training in experiential learning and facilitation, and is a certified Pranayama Yoga Breathing coach. 

Murphy helps performers find vocal and expressive freedom through the exploration of connections between the Brain, the Body, and the Artistic Self. This holistic approach incorporates elements of performance psychology, cognitive science, movement modalities (Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique, etc), and more.  

As an actor, Murphy toured with the Tony Award Winning Broadway Musical, The Book of Mormon, regularly performs with Joe Iconis & Family, and appeared in The Awesome 80’s Prom Off-Broadway. Murphy is also the creator and host of the Bistro Award winning concert series, If It Only Even Runs a Minute, which after 10 years continues to play to sold out houses at Feinstein’s 54 Below.
