I know how difficult it can be to find a reliable teacher that focuses on the voice. Teachers need to be able to motivate and guide students towards success. As a well renowned singer who has succeeded in his own career, I can provide the tools and guidance needed to help all of my students excel. Having worked with students and professionals around the world, I bring a depth of experience and knowledge to those who are eager to expand their minds, talents, and skills. I specialize in Voice and Interpretation. It is very important to me that every student that comes into my studio will have learned something before he or she  leaves.

My 6 rules of singing

1. Posture

Head and neck straight, Spine straight

Loose Jaw

Shoulders relaxed

Rib cage open and flexible

Knees never locked but slightly bent

Weight on the balls of the feet

2. Throat Opening

Relax the jaw

Open the throat like you are going to yawn

Focus on the space in your throat but avoid creating tension

Raise and open the moveable soft palate.

Vocal cords are to emit sound as the air is released.

3. Breathing

Breath from the mid belly section (diaphragm) through the nose and mouth

Use your hands to guide the breath and the voice outwards and forward

Avoid sucking the air in

Breath into the back section of lungs

Relax into the breath and let the air flow outward unobstructed like a sigh     

4. Space and Resonance

Feel Alert and awake

Lift the palate and feel cold air in the sinus cavities

Hold a slight smile in the upper cheek bones

Make the sound in the space or the what we refer as the mask

5. Awareness and connection

Body awareness is important, very similar to meditation

Awareness of the Muscles in the Abdomen

Awareness of the space around you

Your mood, feelings and sensations, are you ready?

Connect with yourself and become one

6. Sound visualization & Vocal chords

Finding and recognizing the vocal chords

Tense Chords for the right resonance

Imagine an egg shape inside your mouth

The nasal humming exercise

Start from a low note and increase by semitones while visualizing a decent
