A Unique Multidisciplinary Approach
Orville draws from areas beyond singing to create a holistic approach to training your voice. Among these are Effortless Mastery (a path to creative freedom as devised by Kenny Werner*), the Alexander Technique (an approach to body alignment), Vipassana Meditation (a way of awakening the body to sensation), Ashtanga Yoga, the martial arts, actors’ improvisation and scene study.

Orville Heyn combines all of these disciplines with a foundation based on Italian classical vocal technique to strengthen any style of singing.
