About Us

The one real important part of my teaching is that now I am a much older man, willing, wanting so hard to help serious students to decide. I have a lot to give, to study singing is not an overnight success or miracle. It takes a lot of perseverance, hard work, giving up some of the pleasures in life. Vocal exercises are of great importance in order to let the natural voice do the work and with the correct breath, the lifeline to the voice, you will learn to what we call, throw the voice out, the beginning of projection. Not every man and or woman can reach any or all the high notes they so want. Here is where I try to use a Texas accent by simply saying ( if you ain't gpt iy you ain't gonna get it.) Why? All voices are individual, what works for one may or will not work for every one. The vocal cords are like finger prints. I do teach one foundation but will try to find the easiest for the student I am working with. So please whoever you are, think carefully before deciding remember, you only have the voice you were born with, treat it better then you treat yourself!!!

The photo shown tp your left is based on the Wayang puppets who in turn were made to look like a certain group of people supposedly looked like. They lived on the island of Java, Indonesia high up on the Dieng Mountains Plateau where there were poisonous gasses coming out of the ground, the reason these people were very tall and extremely limber. Hope you enjoy this little bit of world history. Now come and study with me and who knows, you may make some history yourself. I will only have openings for twenty students. That is all I am willing to handle at my age!!!

Breathing

One must realize when wanting to become a singer most important, difficult part is breath control.  When someone tells you, don't worry it will happen automatically, not true. I also do not teach lifting of the soft palate, it is hard to learn and harder to unlearn, the palate moves by itself when we sing higher.  I was always told my great voice teacherss then when you do lift the soft palate, your voice will also have a shorter lifespan by about ten years.

Teaching Method

image33

 

I teach a student making sure the voice is treated with the greatest regards because we only have one voice and it must be handled with care and respect. This alone is the best advice to and for a customer. I will treat your voice perhaps better than you do yourself.


Critique..from the paper


Most notable among the trained voices was James Vanderpost, who sang the conniving Iago with a perfect touch. His darting movements, his duplicitous grin, his compelling baritone and especially his evil, triumphant laugh at the close of act three were perfect.
