Workshops - Lisa Popeil's Voiceworks®

Total Singer Workshop

Bring the acclaimed Total Singer Workshop to your college, university or singing organization! The 2-3 day Total Singer Workshop outlines the Voiceworks® Method, a concise, systematic, effective approach to voice training based on 50 years of voice study and proficiency. Lisa is one of America’s top voice experts, an international lecturer and voice researcher who shares her life’s-work and up-to-date voice research at this Workshop. If you’re interested in improving your skills as a singer, voice teacher, speech pathologist or choir conductor, you’ll want to attend.

The Voiceworks® Method takes the mystery out of singing in ALL styles with an emphasis on commercial vocal styles (CCM), musical theater styles and especially techniques on how to teach safe, beautiful belting to the top of the range. These techniques allow singers, singing and speech teachers how to control their singing and speaking voices. This is the ultimate how-to seminar. (And a blast to boot!)

The Total Singer Workshop is an interactive experience exploring the differences between classical and popular voice technique, both pedagogical and scientific. Twenty-four years of research at international voice labs comparing classical and popular mechanics will be presented.

Many voice students desire proficiency in a variety of styles to meet the demands of the marketplace while maintaining vocal health, beauty and longevity. It is up to the voice professional to be able to provide these tools.

The Workshop is useful for singers, voice teachers, speech pathologists, choir conductors and anyone interested in the science of singing. For speech pathologists, the 3-day Total Singer Workshop qualifies for 2.2 ASHA CEUs.

What Clients Are Saying

"It was such a pleasure finally getting to meet you, and learn from you.  I enjoyed the workshop immensely. Thank you so much for your generous spirit and willingness to share all that you know. You are a gift!"

Jan Pedersen Schiff

Singers Marin - Founder and Artistic Director

"Thank you for an absolutely terrific and mind-bending four days. Your breadth of knowledge is amazing and your ability to not only imitate so many different vocal styles, but also explain in anatomical detail exactly what you’re doing is stunning. You say you’re no longer a performer but you should be!"

Jocelyn Kasper

"Thank you so much for the life-changing experience this weekend. It's worth at least $1200 and you would still be giving more than we're paying. You just poured all your genius into us and we are so lucky and blessed. I want to book a lesson right away. But we want to thank you so much--(actually we can't thank you enough)! Love and sincere thanks forever.”

Jill Jaxx & Jan Bunker
