When 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 then you do yourself
The Teacher Published by James Van der Post ·
This is a very informative article written by Stefan Zucker, a great Opera critic who has written many books and articles about the great singers. This one about Magda Olivero, a fantastic performer. For any one who wants to study voice as in singing, read this and you will understand about the way I teach. Her voice takes getting used to but it is incredible. Her interpretations are awesome. Look her up on you tube.. I teach a classical foundation but will not tell any student they have to be an Opera singer. The foundation I give can take you into kind of singing you so desire Here is part of the article Olivero, too, had her doubts. "I've already changed teachers three times, and I'd have to convince my father." Her father had come to feel her voice lessons were futile and wanted her to study piano at the conservatory. He relented, however, and Gerussi took her on. He was so severe a taskmaster that he made her cry. "This is the last time you are going to say 'I can't,'" he screamed. "Those words must not exist. If necessary, I'll see you dead to get what I want! Die afterward if you wish, but first you must do what I want." Above all, they worked on breath support.
The love for teaching Voice is not to describe in any words, perhaps Ecstasy. When a student discovers his or her voice, the look on their face is a sort of rapture and I what I do is jump up from behind the piano and say in passionate voice OMG you got it. Remember it takes a while before you can do it more and more like you just did.
Perseverance is the key and they realize it sometimes, then they get eager, to eager at times and I have to the towing them back in. You have to stay on Earth, something I used to say in a class I was teaching. Some of the kids would stare and I tell them to blink and say Interplanetary travel during my class is not allowed and certainly never ever tolerated, they laugh and get right back to what they are supposed to do.
East is East and West is West and never the two shall be twain until they meet each other on the Threshold of GOD .
It is so understandable for some one trying to make a decision weather to learn how to sing correctly, easily and as natural as possible, any idea or thought?
Well what if you don't and you become older and never given yourself the chance or opportunity to at least give your voice a chance to be discovered.
Think this, your voice a diamond in the rough needed to dug out and then cleaned, shaped and then polished, Voila there it is bad good or very good even fantastic, all good to discover and know.
My computer and Skype are set up, ready to accept students, no age limit. If not wanting a professional career remember, learning to use your voice correctly not only gives great pleasure but can turn into making you a much more secure and confident individual, singing in church either in the choir or congregation, public speaking.
We take up hobbies so why not singing.
For the person seriously pursuing a career I tell you up front I am very good in helping you widen your range up and down. Everyone is different like finger prints. If you don't have the high notes, you are not going to get them.
I teach total natural singing, easy but difficult for a lot to grasp but wow ones you get it, you will see by my elation that you got it. No specific time limit can be given, again it is up to the individual person
Try me, what do you have to lose, I have a lot of patience so no worries, I will repeat over and over again till you tell me you sound like a broken CD.
I am waiting (in)patiently to hear from you out there .

What does a burned out voice really mean? Burned out is a term used to describe a voice that has been mistreated. It can be caused by singing songs not ideal for your type of voice, and yet I believe one should be able to sing everything. Listen to Jonas Kaufmann, he sings it all with his voice, something I have come to admire. I read that he had trouble finding a really good vocal teacher....
Therefore, I have decided to accept students with vocal problems as well as burned out voices, as long as the student realizes that it will take a more dedicated and gradual approach with the understanding that the voice might not recover. The good news is that I am a patient and hard working vocal teacher and will work to help you overcome your obstacles. In the beginning, I might refrain from having you sing. Rather, I would have you listening and learning to vocal composers such a, Panofca, Lamperti, and then Vaccai. A voice can only be rebuild note-for-note.
I am often curious as to how many young singers have vocal problems. Please don't wait too long - especially if you are male. The male voice matures slower than the female voice. Take a look at my website, and use the Contact Me area to request a vocal assessment. If your voice is damaged, I recommend two to three lessons in the beginning. Otherwise, weekly is the average schedule.
Please do not hesitate to call me to set up a schedule!
ew students come to me and talk about their chest voice. I have to explain that what they are singing with is the regular middle voice. chest voice is when a woman sings low and almost like a man. It should or must only be used for certain roles. This fabulous singer uses it to much but personally, I love it.
Maria Callas also used it yet singers of today do not sing like this anymore. the new singers sing with a mouth so open it looks to me like they are doing facial acrobatics.
Enjoy, especially my students, listen to it, these singers knew how to sing, yes I believe it sincerely. Teachers of today will disagree with me, so let them. I refuse to let my students to sing and look as if they are working their you know what off
Look for this article on my home page and listen amazing in there..
I wrote about this before, still no students, why? I am old but, how many more years will I be able to help young students and share very gladly my way of teaching.
I am a fantastic teacher, belong to some of the smart ones and come to me and begin a fantastic Vocal journey
