Copy of Voice Lessons
We are our voice. We are not separate from it. Singing can be one of the most joyful experiences of expression there is... except when it's not. When we feel like we "can't", it can be frustrating, uncomfortable, or even embarrassing.
With a strong technical foundation, a healthy mindset, and intentional/conscious practice we can discover, heal, or fine tune our natural and authentic voice. This gives us the freedom to get out of our heads and into our hearts.
I teach the IVA technique. The IVA technique is based on 17th and 18th Century principles of singing developed by the Old Italian School of Singing also known as the Bel Canto tradition. (This post-Renaissance period was called the "Golden Age of Song".)
My goal is to train voices to sing in a free and natural manner, smoothly, from the bottom of the range to the top with no breaks or sudden changes in quality.
Training in this technique gives the singer:
- access to all dynamics, with tonal clarity and flexibility
- improves range, endurance, stamina, breath control, resonance, and vocal strength
- vocal quality across all styles of music without fatigue or damage to the voice
These results are achieved by training the singer to find a balance between airflow and intrinsic muscular resistance, all within a resting laryngeal posture.
