EDUCation

Singing is a life journey. It requires discipline, dedication, and passion. I strongly believe that every student that has these qualities can succeed at singing. 

 

 

Being a voice teacher is a great responsibility. I understand how important it is for a singer to have a good guidance in his/her singing process, and that is the reason why I am committed to every one of my students and I do my best to fulfill their unique needs. Not two singers are the same, and my job is to help them find their own voice, as well as to guide them towards reaching their full potential.

 

 

It is very important for me to create a safe environment in my studio, where my students feel free to make mistakes and to explore their voices without feeling self-conscious. I want every one of my students to feel secure and valued.

 

 

I am a classically trained singer, but I have a broad experience with popular styles of singing, which makes me a versatile educator. No matter what singing style I am teaching, my primary focuses, especially for beginner students, are breath control and body awareness. Body tensions, such as jaw, neck, shoulders, and back tensions, can have a very negative impact in the production of a healthy and resonant voice, which is why I use a combination of exercises and kinesthetic techniques to increase my students’ body awareness that help them release and free their voice.

 

 

Every student has a different learning style, and it is my job as an educator to find different approaches that facilitate their understanding and progress. I understand the functioning of the vocal apparatus in terms of anatomy, but I also like to use imagery that can lead the student in the direction of accomplishing a specific vocal goal. 

 

 

Assigning the right repertoire to voice students is one of the most important responsibilities of a voice teacher. I have a wide knowledge of vocal repertoire in several languages and it is essential for me that the pieces I assign to my students are within their possibilities and vocal range, as well as being accessible to them in terms of music difficulty and poetry.

 

 

Singing is a long-life process, and I feel very fortunate to be able to guide my students in the beautiful path of achieving a good vocal technique and discovering their own sound.
