"The oldest, truest, most beautiful organ of music, the origin to which alone our music owes its being, is the human voice." Richard Wagner
The fine beautiful "organ" you bring to the study of voice must be cherished. The study of voice is a journey of self discovery. The student, through practice in the studio and at home will discover the voice that is their own. The focus of my studio will be on helping the students discover free and unencumbered singing. Richard Miller in his book, The Structure of Singing says; Although the art of singing can be learned only through singing, the systematic organization of vocal technique is the most efficient route to the realization of the primary goal; production of beautiful sound." Through specific exercises, the student gains a language for understanding the components of the four components of the mechanistic functions of singing; in respiration, phonation, resonation and articulation.
Since the entire body is the instrument, the student will work on many physical aspects of the singing process. In addition, a strong focus will be on communicating through singing. We are drawn to singing because of the beauty of the words and music in song. I feel that the individual song that you sing, must be shared. In my studio, we will work on finding your own voice and the means to communicate that voice.
