Singer musicologist |online voice lessons focused on body awareness and breath work

Methodology

Hi! My name is Lola and I'm a musicologist and a singer. I've been teaching voice for the last four years and I base my teaching method on developing body awareness, and how to learn to use your instrument in the most effective manner.

My students come from different backgrounds - choir, jazz, folk singers, and beginners who've always wanted to sing. I tend to teach students who have sung in the past but are not comfortable in the way they sing, feel the need to change "something" in the way they produce sound, or do not feel they're reaching their potential as singers.

A typical lesson structure with me will have:
* Initial body awareness exercises
* Breath work and learning to be aware of the process of breathing
* Development of the support system for producing sound
* Singing exercises to work on different elements, depending on the student's needs (for example we work on vocal range, agility, tension release, voice projection and resonance, etc.)
* We apply what we've learned in a song/repertoire of choice

In a nut-shell, my philosophy in teaching voice is:

I focus on developing an awareness on how to breathe without effort or strain, and how to produce sound naturally, as a foundation for singing and music making. I believe we need to get to know our instrument well, be in an active relationship with it, in order to produce sound in harmony with our body. Singing is a pleasure! and that's the bottom line. When I teach, I focus on bringing together body, mind and spirit in order to create sound and let the voice express itself freely.

Experience

I'm a singer currently working on my PhD in Musicology which focuses on voice technique in early recordings, and I have been teaching singing for more than four years. My PhD is all about listening to the voice - from 1898 onwards - and I've learned to develop insight into how a singer produces sound, different techniques that were used in the early XXth century, and how we perceive them today.

I sing classical repertoire, mainly art song and early music, though I have also sung popular music -- Spanish & Latin American folksongs. On stage I've crossed over the "academic" to the "popular" music worlds and back. I enjoy finding the bridges that unite these seemingly different territories. I believe that expression in the voice has no boundaries and, increasingly, I strive for this in my personal vocal journey.


My students find a new way to approach their music and their voices, letting go of previously acquired constraints, all through a new awareness of their instrument, namely, their body, and what goes on when sound is produced.

Freedom in a voice is acquired once you understand how your instrument works and focus on the process of creating sound. This way you truly enjoy singing as an expression of your own creative self.

Perfect! Lola is very calming and I felt instantly comfortable with her. I like her approach to singing, she encourages being aware of the body and the mind acting as a whole, and this helps in many ways in addition to learning how to sing. Looking forward to more classes!

Lola's response

Vanessa is a joy to teach. She is very interested in developing a holistic approach to singing - something I can definitely help her with. She's involved in singing as a way to improve her life energy and that's always a good focal point for creativity.

She was my first singing teacher. I love to sing and sing at karaoke too and Lola has helped me gain confidence with my voice. She’s very detail oriented, she makes you feel safe in her class, and I’ve gained a lot of insight about how to sing and how to use my physical body and movements to enhance my voice. I am sure that anyone who takes lessons with Lola will be very pleased. Lola is not only a great coach, she is a wonderful person, as well! Thank you!

She's really patient. During two years, she was my singing teacher and helped me to become more self-confident and overcome my shyness.
At the same time, she taught me to improve my singing technique.

Lola is a great teacher! She has many tools and techniques to offer, and explains everything in great detail. She is very passionate about singing and teaching which reflects to her classes. Strongly recommend working with her if you want someone who cares about the emotional connection of the art of singing as well as the technique.

Lola has been my voice teacher for over a year now and I feel I have developed my singing skills significantly. I have learned to be more in tune with how I sing, and what goes on when I sing. I can also notice when I create unnecessary tension or breathe shallow. I've felt much freer while singing and enjoy it much much more! Lola is very down to earth and relaxed and has helped me enjoy singing my own songs. She's great!
