David Goldsworthy joined ROY HART in 1969 and was director of the Roy Hart Centre in France for many years. The central elements of his teaching is to free the voice through exploration and improvisation.
“I believe that voice teaching is a way of meeting, of exchanging and of mutual learning. In my view there are no good or bad singers! Vocal virtuosity is not the ultimate aim of the work. It is important not only to develop the voice, but also to develop oneself through the voice. In order to evolve vocally and artistically I believe it is necessary to make friends with one’s weaknesses and to integrate the physical and mental disciplines which give freedom to the imagination and to creative expression.”
David Goldsworthy was born in Newcastle 1945. He always loved music (especially jazz and blues, folk singing, rock and roll!), but studied engineering at Manchester University (where he sang and played sax and harmonica in a blues band). He wanted to become a photographer and worked for 2 years in the oil fields of the North Sea and in Libya to earn the necessary money to continue studying. At the same time as he began photography, he met the Roy Hart Theatre, and his life changed radically. He became totally engaged with the RHT, the voice work, theatre, and the life of the group. He has lived for the past 48 years focussing on the development and transmission of the vocal and theatrical work of the RHT in France and abroad.
David worked with Roy Hart, Robert Harvey, Richard Armstrong, Elisabeth Mayer, Marita Gunther, Derek Rossignol
He speaks English and French.
