Avoid following the tide of Voice Training

This is an extract from by ebook you can download for free!

Modern society continues to suffer the decay I mentioned at the beginning, with the multiplier effect of digital communication speed and social panurgism. In fact, if in ancient times the singer’s “managers”, i.e. the people who handled the artists, had to make a living by offering the public “mediocre” artists, exalting them as if they were the best, imagine what could happen today where the media bombards us from all directions.

Which yardstick to use when choosing a Singing Teacher?

This is an extract from by ebook you can download for free!

Many people who approach voice training rely on chance as if they were gambling on lottery numbers. Often they do not have any means, sometimes not even an idea, for assessing the teacher in front of them and to whom they will entrust their voice. This is where it is good to explain what are the yardsticks for measuring the skills of a vocal coach. 

The first yardstick is to evaluate his/her voice. And that is where the shoe pinches! In fact, very often I find myself in front of people or other vocal coaches who want to evaluate skills based on how someone sings. Many people are surprised because they can’ t find on YouTube or other similar websites any trace of my “singing” performances as if it was mandatory to show them to be hired. They can’t find any because I have chosen not to show them.

Who was born first, the book or the teacher?

This is an extract from by ebook you can download for free!

We often forget where culture originates from. Culture is born out of the man. If today we can study technical subjects such as mathematics, artistic subjects such as music or spiritual subjects such as religion, it is because some men have bothered to organize their knowledge, their ideas, in order to transmit them to disciples.

Clearly, voice education also had its origins in the same way. The great singers of the past, once reached clear fame, were followed by a few students, called apprentices, who wanted to learn their art.

How NOT to become a singing teacher

This is an extract from by ebook you can download for free!

In the past, when the environment of vocal training was still limited to a minority, theoretical study occupied only a small part of the education necessary to become a teacher, in fact, the practical aspect was the most important one. Things seem to have turned upside down today. I have to say that they seem to be because in reality very often those who have been trained to be a teacher have no idea of the practical aspect of what they have learned. Many people hide behind specialist terms, often used inappropriately, just to give themselves credit or show that they have theoretical knowledge. The thing that is dangerous for me is that those who have obtained some degree by studying books totally lack practical experience or worse still have unacceptable vocal problems yet to be addressed.

Intro to the Art of Keeping a Healthy Voice

This is an extract from by ebook you can download for free!

For me, it is important that people can understand and therefore make well-informed choices about who to entrust their voice to. It is also important to know what may be the consequences of incorrect learning

Today more than ever I feel the responsibility of doing a little clarification on the world of voice training. The job of a vocal coach is to help people improve their voices, to speak, act or sing. That seems clear to everyone. What is often underestimated is that no result can be achieved if the health of the vocal cords is not preserved intact. In fact, it is impossible to develop a conscious and harmonious voice when the vocal cords have suffered any form of damage or abuse. Let’s take for example the soft and silky hands of a child, capable of giving very delicate caresses. Only when you care for your hands, even after 30 years, they will maintain the same delicacy. If on the other side, the hands are exposed to mistreatment, they will develop a whole series of modifications that will make them rough and calloused: they will always be able to give caresses, but no longer with the same delicacy. Our vocal cords must be absolutely preserved and, fortunately for us, if we know how to use them correctly, they don’t get damaged, they don’t develop nodules and they allow us to grow up to centenarians with an enviable voice.
