You asked for it, and now I offer it – voice training.
Imagine singing and knowing just how you will sound. Imagine always singing with your unique sound, regardless of genre or style.
What if you could learn how your natural voice sounds when it is strong and working well. What if you could sing with more power, less effort, and strengthen your unique sound. You’ll be recognizable as you!
I teach Functional Vocal Training, which mean there is no fluffy language. You’ll learn how your body works to produce sound and how to produce chest voice, head voice, a mix of head/chest, and belting and bel canto.
Functional Vocal Training seeks to help a singer develop
- Two or more octaves, evenly produced
- Consistent, natural vibrato
- No distorted vowels
- No manipulation of any structures in the throat
- With a range of volume from PP to FF on most pitches
- A solid chest register
- A middle mix of chest and register
- A strong high head (also known as falsetto in men)
- Maximum efficiency
- Minimum effort
The Body is Your Instrument – Functional Voice Training
My teaching is based on the principles of Somatic Voicework(sm) The LoVetri Method. The method, developed by NYC voice teacher Jeanie LoVetri, gives you a solid foundation in your own natural voice. Once you know where your natural home base voice is, you can then develop it to sing whatever genre you are interested in. The lessons focus on basic body-centered instructions, as well as vocal health, so the singer can “belt” it out while keeping their voice safe.
I also teach the principles of Soul Ingredients(r), the method developed by gospel-jazz singer
I will help you produce good functional coordination of the entire vocal instrument, including the whole body, which leads to control over whatever sound the singer might want to make.
