Movement as an assessment is a way of seeing if, during voice trouble of any kind, elements of the body have been subscribed to sustaining the problem. For example, when someone’s voice is causing them trouble, it can trigger extra sub-glottal pressure IE pushing. That pushing can become habitual so that even if their voice could work better in the future, it won’t because it’s being pushed.
To quickly assess that and bring about change, we can use the arms in specific ways because they affect the ribcage, and the ribcage is part of pushing.
In Chris’s teaching, movement becomes part of every session because singers have all kinds of unhelpful physical situations that can be rooted out, instantly changing their voice.
