I am Gina Razón, principal teacher at GROW Voice, a Boston-based Voice and Speech Studio.
I’ve taught voice for over sixteen years in private, community and academic settings. In 2013, I gave a TEDxCambridge talk entitled Learning to Breathe Again. During my talk prep, it became clear that I was in a position to address the needs of many more singers and speakers using my unique approach to structural alignment and marshaling the body’s natural tendencies.
This blog is an ode to the human voice and the body which holds it. I believe in the power of the human voice. It is my lighthouse. I also believe that it isn’t a power limited to the naturally gifted but the right of ALL who use their voices to communicate. My goal is to demystify the voice and tempt you into a relationship with the craft of voice use.
I live in Boston with my husband, daughter, cat, and dog and can be found singing absent-mindedly all over town.
I hope you enjoy the blog but more importantly, I hope to come to believe in your voice.
