Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to allow the singer to sing as freely as possible with an ease of inhalation and exhalation, and with an awareness of resonance and breath flow. When a singer is comfortable, confident and the production is stable then the voice becomes clear and consistent. We respect all genres of music, styles and vocalisms. We work with singers pursuing careers on Broadway, in Rock, R & B, Folk, Classical, Opera, Country and others that want to sing for fun or even work on their public speaking voices.

While teaching at New York University, privately and other university settings in the U.S.A., we interact with individuals from many different backgrounds, cultures and passions. Initially we spend time with singers undoing vocal misunderstandings acquired from imitating techniques from the popular scene of a given genre. As teachers of voice, our responsibility is to help the singer find more possibilities and options versus creating restrictions in singing. Achieving vocal stability can lead to the singer being able to communicate and express at an optimal level. The craft of singing take time, determination, patience, exploration and guidance to find the singers true voice and their fullest potential.
