Unlocking confidence is key. Everyone has a voice but it is an extraordinary instrument as unique as a thumbprint and sometimes needs a guidance to blossom. You will be amazed by what you didn't know you could do!
I have sung at a professional level for over 20 years, and have experienced various schools of vocal technique from traditional 'bel canto' methodologies of Marchesi and Lucie Manen to Husler, to the popular and accessible Estill Vocal Training system.
I have had, as many singers have, a few moments in my singing life where I’ve had to make technical adjustments and troubleshoot an issue before it takes real hold. I know that anything can be reversed with patience and skill, so troubleshooting is my speciality. Often it is a confidence issue as a lack of confidence can lead to a holding back and from there tension becomes the real enemy of freedom. A singer needs to learn a language to instruct the body so that it can offset any tension.
If you want to learn a song, aria, or join a choir and/or if have confidence issues with your voice, come and see me for a consultation. I do not rigidly apply a particular technique and mix and match a few ideas tailored to the students needs, abilities and level. I am also gaining a reputation as a trouble-shooter for experienced singers who have encountered vocal problems.
I am a member of AOTOS, the Association of Teachers of Singing.
