Most people love to sing and/or enjoy listening to beautiful singing. Students come to my studio because they want to improve their singing.
Whether beginners or professional singers, they all have a great desire to sing more beautifully. Why? Because their singing voices represent who they are as people and how they feel about life. They want the quality of their singing to be aligned with the ideal of themselves.
To improve their singing voices, voice students simply have to change what they are doing. As soon as voice students preconceive and expect a more lovely sound – a different sound will usher forth because their minds and bodies respond to meet the new expectations.
From the very first lesson, voice students are encouraged to enhance the beauty of their vocal sounds and to reveal the power of their voices to express that which is not expressible by words alone.
Beginning students will apply their newly acquired vocal technique to folk songs. More advanced students will apply their singing technique to Italian, French, German, Spanish and English Art Songs.
Professional singers will apply their new singing techniques to arias from operas material from oratorios.
Those interested in learning songs from Broadway shows, interpreting jazz standards and improvizing over jazz harmonies will be provided that opportunity upon request.
Voice lessons cover the following topics:
• Resonance and tone color
