IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR EVERY SERIOUS VOCAL STUDENT

 

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.

My most favorite quote is by Rudyard Kipling, fantastic author

 East is East and West is West and never the two shall be twain until they meet each other on the Threshold of GOD .

What to do when in doubt about your Voice singing and speaking

 

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 Skype is ready to teacher eager Vocal students

 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 .
