“The singer is the instrument and yet they play the instrument. It’s a three part system. There’s the respiratory, which has to do with inhalation and exhalation. The source is where the sound is made. The filter is the vocal tract and if the body is not working optimally, you’re not going to be able to produce sound safely.” – Joan Lader

2016 Tony Award Honoree Joan Lader is a legend to those who know her and those yet to know her. As one of the most esteemed vocal coaches in the business, Joan has worked with talent of all kinds to help them with both exploring and training of their respiratory and vocal tracts and guiding performers to find the best methods in achieving ultimate sound quality and type. Watch as she works with her clients Tony winners Renée Elise Goldsberry, Annaleigh Ashford, and Tony Nominees Michael McElroy and Raúl Esparza.
