… to serve as a resource for 21st-century singers, actors, speakers, teachers, coaches, and any other professional and recreational voice user.
My studio belongs to the new generation of vocal pedagogy & Vocology. Vocology is the science and practice of voice habilitation (and, if necessary, supportive rehabilitation with Speech Language Pathologists) which includes evaluation, diagnosis, and behavioral intervention. It combines in-depth knowledge of anatomy, physiology, acoustics and voice medicine. More broadly, it is the study of vocalization.
This special qualification allows me to work with a variety of vocalists (singers, actors, clergy, teachers, politicians etc.) on a myriad of vocal problems in both the singing and the speaking voice, to transition from a post-therapy phase toward an optimal level of vocal activity. As one solves technical problems with this precise and practical knowledge of the vocal instrument, the end-product is more assured and the joy we desire, for both performer and audience, is attainable on a surer and more-quickly-acquired basis.
The vocal technique that I teach in my studio is based on a healthy, sustainable vocal technique in a supportive environment to help students reach their potential in a variety of genres, including classical, musical theatre, and pop.
No matter who need vocal guidance — Singers, Actors, Voice Teachers, Priests, Managers, Choral Directors looking for new resources — after a precise analysis of the voice and the existing technique, we establish a game plan to discover and add missing pieces of the technical puzzle and then join them into the overall technique.
We can also fix urgent problems for an upcoming audition/performance, or, when the case warrants it, start at the beginning and explore the Bel Canto Tradition on a basis of a scientifically-supported technique.
