My method is based on the old Bel Canto tradition , combined with modern scientific knowledge.
Vocal science has been around since Ancient Greece, but it's really in the last 30 years of research with modern medical equipment, that we know a lot more about the mechanics of the voice. Nowadays we still use a lot of the same exercises as the old teachers did but now we know why they work and how to apply them better!
The good news is... as a singer you don't need to know any of this!
I teach from the performer's perspective, with simple words everyone can understand. Find it, feel it, sing it!
Why is my teaching different?
- Correct voice production or "vocal function" comes first!
- Simple and intuitive exercices. Based on your voice, goals and/or vocal problems.
- We work on the whole range of your voice from the very beginning.
- You can sing any style: the basic rules are the same!
So, are you ready to find your real vocal abilities?
First let me bust a common myth for you. I'm sure you heard this before: Some people are born to sing and others - no matter how hard they try sound like this:
But does that mean they have a bad voice? Absolutely not! It simply means they are not using it correctly!
Think about it: What good is a Ferarri if you don't know how to drive? No matter how good your car is, you need to learn how to drive first and the better the driver you are, the more you will get out of your car. Same thing applies to your voice.
Nobody is born a good singer but like every skill some people have an easier time learning it than others. Through vocal training you will learn how to find your own unique voice and maximize it's potential.
A healthy well trained voice has at least 2 octaves of usable range, a nice unique tone, good pitch and the ability to sing loud, soft and anything in between.
