My Technique: My technique consists of a series of reflexive exercises (semi-occluded vocal tract), based on the vocology work of Ingo Titze, to connect the singer's voice (muscle) with their breath. Once these concepts become automatic the singer is able to produce sounds that can be classified as "belt", "mix", or "legit". These exercises also focus on the areas of articulation, pronunciation, breathing, posture, tone, blending registers, resonance / power, volume, endurance, range, and audiation. I do not teach a "cookie cutter" approach and custom tailor my sessions to match your learning style. I also specialize in breathing for the singer, actor, and or professional speaker. As a vocologist, I work with singers who are currently in, or in the past, have gone through many types of vocal rehab with a licensed ENT (ear, nose & throat) doctor or a speech therapist. I can incorporate your current rehab prescription into the session, supervised by your ENT or speech language pathologist.
Technology Used During Sessions: All sessions are audio recorded and sent to you using a free service called Dropbox. Once setup, you can access recordings of your sessions on your home or work computer, Ipad, Iphone or Android device. Many times sessions include work with a vocal acoustic monitor (VAM) so the client can hear themselves the way others hear them. I also use a computer spectrogram to allow clients to see their voice as real time picture as well as a computer pitch counter for clients with pitch matching problems.
