How will my new course work?

Hello, pals! I'm Renée, your companion and cheerleader on what promises to be an exhilarating journey toward voice affirmation and exploration. On Monday, I was beyond thrilled to introduce "Mix & Match: Designing Your Nonbinary Voice"—a course crafted with love for nonbinary individuals like us, who are on a quest to express our most authentic selves through our voices.

This course is born out of countless conversations, personal experiences, and, yes, even some frustrations with the lack of resources tailored for our unique journeys. It's designed to be a haven where you can discover, refine, and celebrate your voice, in all its unique glory.

The Magic Behind "Mix & Match"

The Quest for a Voice That Resonates

How, you might wonder, can one course cater to such a splendidly diverse range of voice goals? Well, the secret lies in a tool I created especially for this course, the mixing board! A visual tool that we'll be using to understand and modify our voices.

The Mixing Board Explained

Imagine, if you will, a DJ's mixing board, but instead of tracks, each slider represents a characteristic of your voice. Pitch, resonance, weight, and so much more—all at your fingertips, ready to be mixed and matched to your heart's content. This is the core of our course, a playful yet profound way to explore and craft your unique sound.

Crafting Your Unique Sound

 Understanding Your Current Voice

Our journey begins with a deep dive into the voice you bring to the table. Through analysis tools and ear training, you'll learn to express how your current voice sounds using the mixing board. This step is all about self-awareness and setting the stage for transformation.

Independence in Modification

Then, we embark on the thrilling part—learning to modify each vocal characteristic independently. I'll guide you through understanding how each slider on our mixing board affects your voice, giving you the autonomy to play and experiment.

The Symphony of Voice Characteristics

But here's where it gets truly magical. We'll explore how these characteristics work in harmony, much like the instruments in an orchestra, to create a sound that's uniquely yours. This symphony of voice characteristics is what allows for the rich diversity of voices within our nonbinary community.

Beyond Technique – Embracing Play and Creativity

The Heart of Our Course

Skill-building is essential, yes, but it's the spirit of play and creativity that truly defines "Mix & Match." This course is a celebration of gender creativity, an invitation to explore the boundless possibilities of your voice.

Gender Creativity in Practice

I encourage you to approach this journey with an open heart and mind. Experiment, make joyful noises, and discover what resonates with your soul. Remember, every voice is a masterpiece waiting to be discovered.

Conclusion: A Call to Adventure

As we stand on the threshold of this adventure, I want to share something personal. My journey with my own voice has been a tapestry of discovery, frustration, joy, and ultimately, profound self-love. It's this journey that has fueled my passion for helping others find their voice.

"Mix & Match" is more than a course—it's a community, a journey, and a celebration of the unique voice within each of us. If you're ready to explore the vastness of your voice and how it can reflect your beautiful, nonbinary self, I'm here to guide and support you.
