I teach Singing, Broadway Singing, Country Singing, and Classical Singing in the Bel Canto style to beginners, intermediate, advanced, and touring professionals. During your first lesson I do a computer analysis of your voice, I find out what your goals are in singing, what your favorite kinds of music are, and I take you in the direction you want to go and show you how to get there in the shortest possible time. I always record my students so that they know how they sound to others. I also make a CD of them singing to background music if they wish, included in the cost of the lessons for no extra charge. Learn to sing beautifully, and most important, emotionally. Learn the parts of your vocal instrument, How each works, How they work together. Develop Breath support (80% of singing). Learn how to do the Singer's Formant, "Squillo" (that "ringing" sound of professionals). Learn how to conquer nervousness, learn Resonance, Overtones, Vibrato, How to sing high notes, Learn the "singing vowels", and more. I would rather teach singing than eat chocolate, and if you knew how much I like chocolate, you'd know my passion for teaching singing. I've been studying voice since third grade, and teaching singing for eighteen years. I've had nine singing teachers myself, so I know just how you feel. I get you comfortable, and I listen closely to what you want to do and where you want to go with your singing voice. My students learn all the important aspects of singing right away, rather than drawing them out over time. I teach all styles of singing including Pop, Blues, Classical, Rock, Jazz, Scat Singing, Belting, Country and Western, and Rap. I teach singing in English, Italian, Spanish, and German. As my singing student you'll have access to the four books I've written on singing: SING BETTER FAST: a complete but concise treatise on vocal technique (It includes a Practice CD with a free recording studio program to install into your computer); How to conquer nervousness for singers, how to get standing ovations for singers, and sing better fast 2, advanced singing.. I believe these four books are the most current and relevant works on these subjects available today. My Bachelor's and Master's Degrees are from California State University Dominguez Hills. Put your singing voice in my hands. You'll love the results.
