What I Teach.

  • Training & Control Over Your Vocal Muscles.
  • We will address the way your vocal operates and make it stronger and more efficient.

    Many approaches to voice involve some pretty complex combinations of physical things.
    Vocal teachers give instructions like: “breath a certain way, lift the soft pallet, place the sound, bring your eyebrows up, bounce the sound out your nose into the frontal mask”… etc.
    Although these practices are able to achieve results, often one very important component is overlooked: the actual vocal mechanism.

    Many techniques deal with things outside the actual vocal mechanism thus never really addressing the full potential of the singer.

  • The voice, as proven by world-renowned vocal expert Corneilus Reid, is simply a set of muscle groups that, when coordinated properly, creates the most beautiful and powerful sound imaginable. Listen to a baby cry. Those little vocal cords send out a sound that rattles the walls in the room. Most adults cannot match that intensity.
  • By identifying and strengthening those specific areas of your vocal mechanism that are not properly coordinated, your voice will grow to its fullest potential. This method utilizes the basic principles of Bel Canto singing and combines the science of acoustics. This created a series of tenets that allow one to directly influence the way the vocal mechanism operates and bring it to its full potential.

  • You will get very specific, easy-to-understand exercises to practice at home with instructions that are easy to follow.
  • This method has been practiced by many professional singers and teachers in New York and the east coast for over 40 years.
    This is the first time it is offered on the west coast.
  • Stage Presence & Charisma.
  • We constantly evaluate your posture, your stage technique, your microphone technique and give you specific advice and exercise to overcome nervousness or self-consciousness as a performer.
    There are psychological tricks and techniques we teach to help you become a very confident vocalist.
