By Gfire M. - Austin Voice Teacher
I have been singing since age 3 and taking voice lessons since age 14, beginning with classical songs, musical theater, and opera before getting into rock, blues, folk, country, R&B and anything else I felt like trying! One thing that always bugged me about voice lessons was that I was never told exactly where all of my singing sounds come from. Of course we discussed chest voice, middle voice and head voice, but I never really understood what to do with my throat to make these sounds happen.
Fortunately, very early in my professional singing career, I happened upon a book in the library called “Science and Singing.” It was my first real “Ah-Ha” moment – the author explained that the real source of singing tone comes from air vibrating in the sinus cavities of the head. Then the sound resonates in the rest of the vocal instrument to create the full tone in each singer.
I went on to become the only certified teacher of the “Science of Singing” in the United States. I later added my full certification as a kundalini yoga teacher, since I found that I sing better when I do yoga each day. The combination of these two disciplines allows me to instruct every singing (and speaking) pupil with precision how to create every note in her/his singing range.
It’s been quite a journey for me!! I love teaching singing lessons in Austin and hearing my students’ voices gain in beauty and power – but mostly I love giving every student the confidence that he or she can sing the songs they enjoy with a real sense of mastery. Take singing lessons in Austin and learn some yoga for your own voice!
Singing, to me, is the purest form of expression. I love all music, and I love teaching it! I love getting my students to really feel what they're singing, and when that happens, it's magic.
