Calling Voice Movement
is a new, innovative movement which aims to promote the field of vocal pedagogy in Israel and in the Middle East, as well as instill individual and communal well-being through positive comprehensive study of the voice.
This is a home for voice professionals who wish to develop and deepen their knowledge and understanding in the field of voice work. Students who participate in the various courses, will receive an education that merges a somatic and holistic approach with the latest research in voice sciences.
אודות מורן כהן טלמור מייסדת Calling Voice Movement
The movement was founded by Moran Cohen Talmor, in 2005, in accordance with the fundamentals of Somatic Voicework™ of the LoVetri Method. Over the years, many voice instructors and vocalists have joined Calling Voice Movement and studied in various courses in an array of different academic levels. These teachers form the body of the movement and together make up a community of vocalists who are committed to constant research, development, practice and deepening of knowledge.
We view vocal instructors essentially as body-work mentors.
We therefore provide our students with somatic studies on par with the highest international standards of education, covering topics such as anatomy, physiology, in-depth study of the functional vocal systems, breathing techniques, practical experience and exercises utilizing various somatic arts and movement disciplines, an introduction to voice pathologies, and finally, the familiarization with the professional language required for multidisciplinary work with speech therapists and ENT professionals.
Positive voice work is, in effect, a developmental tool that creates a connection – both internally, connecting individuals with themselves, as well as externally, connecting the individual and the other. This work effects one’s vocal freedom, self-expression and connection to the body. The teachers and voice professionals who study at Calling Voice Movement must therefore first undergo a process of personal development. Following this process of self-improvement, each of our teachers can take the body of knowledge that they accumulated during their studies and then pass it on to their students; thus spreading the influence and positive message of self-awareness and connection. This is the power of the movement.
With the understanding that vocal instructors tread together with their students on a path of personal development, we are committed to creating and maintaining a safe and supportive learning space. Therefore, the studies at Calling Voice Movement incorporate many different learning methods, as well as the acquisition of skills in interpersonal communication and guided practical exercises.
We believe that everyone has the ability to learn to sing and feel fulfilled by their voice.
You can’t sing what you can’t hear, however, and you can’t teach what you can’t sing. Therefore, the teachers studying at Calling Voice Movement are committed to a process of development and professionalization, first and foremost, as singers, and as a result of this growth, then, as teachers. Studies include experiencing singing in different styles and producing different types of voice. Teachers trained through Calling Voice Movement have all of the necessary tools to work with a variety of students, in different musical styles and to respond to students both technically (functionally) as well as artistically.
The Calling Voice Movement community is a professional, respectful and supportive space that brings together voice professionals from different cultures and religions, different voice styles and musical styles. This is where the magic happens. This is where we ignite the spark of connection. Our community is a productive and inspiring foundation for collaborations, discussion and the free-flow of ideas. The personal development of each of our teachers is integral to our professional development and our development as a community as a whole. Thus the Calling Voice Movement continues on, in constant dynamic movement and development.
