Caroline Holden

     Voice teacher and teacher of the Alexander Technique


Like many singers, I have had to overcome difficulties with my voice during the course of my singing life, and I know how physically demanding performing, rehearsing and studying can be. I always integrate the Alexander Technique into voice lessons, but can work with a student on just the voice, or just the Alexander Technique. Not every student needs the same thing or learns the same way; I do not have a one-size-fits-all approach to singing or to the Alexander Technique.

Since I first began performing professionally almost 30 years ago, I know how stressful it is to audition for an opera house, an agent, a conductor, a university program or even your local church choir. Using the Alexander Technique and my broader knowledge of performing, I can help prepare a singer for any audition.

Included you’ll find a podcast section of interviews I’ve done with artists and teachers who inspire me.  I hope they’ll inspire you.

The voice is at once strong and fragile. It is not something separate from the torso and head, and will react to changes within and without the body.
