Teaching

At its greatest, singing is freedom. It takes a journey of life to find the essential openness that is needed to attain this freedom. Breath releases the singing tone; ideally the whole body becomes a part of this process. The singer must get to know their voice perfectly, and this leads to getting to better understand oneself.

There are many great ways to help a singer attain perfect vocal coordination. The teacher’s job is to find the most meaningful and efficient connection between the voice and the singer.

Good health and a well balanced and energized body will enhance a voice;  but a voice can only gain its ultimate beauty and technical perfection through a long life of performing by attaining complete ease of vocal production.

The attainment of this ease of production is the first and essential goal of the voice teacher. A combination of the 19th century Italian bel canto (beautiful singing) ideals, and modern scientific knowledge and skill gives us marvelous tools to prepare the great singers of the future.

During the COVID 19 Pandemic, I teach singing online and welcome contact from all those seriously interested in the art of singing.
