Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) December 18, 2007
Carol Tingle Voice Studio is pleased to announce the release of "Centering for the Performer: Opening To The Creative Voice Within," a set of three CD's with four guided explorations designed to assist those who are involved in any type of performance situation. The CD's feature the music of composer Beverly Rieger. The CD is available on http://www.CenteringForPerformance.com, Amazon.com and CD Baby.
Drawing upon 40 years of teaching and coaching singers and performers of all technical levels and musical styles, Tingle has created her unique method to find "stillness" in the midst of highly charged performance demands. Tingle directs attention to the "person" behind the performer, emphasizing that when there is a change in the "performer," the result is a change in the "performance." According to Tingle, "In the high-pressure world of performance, we witness artists losing themselves to performance anxiety due to the stress and expectation of their own design. Performance can apply to music, acting, writing, dance, business, sports, test anxiety, or any other situation in life where the expectation is intense.
"The natural progression of the four guided explorations gives valuable assistance to those who are on a creative journey of any kind. The work helps the performer/listener to find their own center through addressing and acknowledging their personal needs and issues, thus allowing them to transform and open up to their innate, creative wellspring within," Tingle explains.
New products are in the works, Centering for the Young Performer will be next.
