Music is one of the greatest gifts. It builds self-confidence, allows for various emotional experiences and provides an understanding of different cultues. Our voice is a powerful musical instrument. We utilize singing by delivering words within our intonation. This reminds us of our own life events and evokes emotions connected with such experiences. These are emotions that we as a whole share thanks to music. Vocal musical talent is a skill that can be learned and enriched. It is not a skill that is predetermined. Through hard work and practice, anyone can gain musical talent and become an exceptional musician. In my private voice studio, it is important for me to uplift my students as they learn new techniques. Mastering such new techniques is challenging. As their teacher, I support and encourage students to reach the very best of their capabilities through a wide variety of music styles and songs in order for them to master their understanding of music. Under the direction of my mentors, I learned voice techniques that have challenged my own abilities. Thanks to their guidance, I was able to understand the human anatomy and move past my physical limitations so as to achieve greater capabilites in my voice. Connecting with your bodies and emotions play a significant role in our singing. It is my goal to teach prospective and current students the same understandings of the human anatomy and encourage them to move past their own limitations in order to fulfill their true voice. With this concept I provide in my singing instructions, my students will receive a better understanding of how their voice functions within their anatomy. They will also develop muscle memory that forgoes any restrictive tension in their body to help them promote and maintain vocal health in their singing, and it will help them prepare for their upcoming recitals, auditions, as well as for thier own leisure in singing. My pedagogical approach in teaching utilizes a variety of creativity to provide my students a broad understanding of musical voice. I input an application of kinesthetics in my lessons in order to create a fun and unique learning environment. My colleagues and mentors can attest to my demeanor. I have an infectious sense of humor. I will insert hilarious jokes in relation to my lesson plans in order to have a positive aura in my instructions. It is my goal for each student to leave our voice lessons feeling hapy and good about their newly learned skills as much as possible. In my leisure time, I enjoy singing karaoke with my venerable friends. I like to travel in different places in our country and around the world. I enjoy watching Japanese Animations ever since childhood.
