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. 

The public is constantly misled and persuaded, little by little, that mediocrity is pure talent. Then comes the emotional aspect, the cheering, the faith, which makes it almost impossible to oppose against these yardsticks of judgment. If someone firmly believes in something, even if it’s wrong, then it’s a good idea for them to fight hard to get the results. What is sure is that if you once worked a lifetime to achieve success and maintain it, today you work at most for a couple of years to achieve temporary success before disappearing into thin air.

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. 

In fact, the ability to judge someone else’s vocal ability is inextricably linked to one’s own personal experience. Since normally people who want to learn how to use their voice do not consider themselves to be able to sing already, it should be clear to you that this may not be the right yardstick for judging a vocal coach. We might consider a voice full of flaws as beautiful and we might not like a technically perfect voice. It’s a bit like taking a first-grade child before a fifth-grade child who can do multiplication in his or her mind. For the first grade child, the fifth-grade one would be considered as a “genius” or a “magician”. 

But if we take the same fifth-grader and confront him/her with a eighth-grader things will be reversed in the presence of a second-degree equation. 

The yardstick is always relative. Few people are able to assess the skill of the master they have in front and, most importantly, when they no longer have something to learn from him/her.

Judging without a background is possible, but the final result will be related to chance, which often brings with it real disasters. A bit like judging the solidity of a bridge without knowing anything about the laws of physics, dynamics, and materials.

Since each of us can speak, it will certainly be easier to judge the skill of a vocal coach while he/she is speaking than while he/she is singing. If it has some pronunciation defects in the langue he/she is speaking, a marked local accent, apnea during speeches, haste in exposing things, reddening of the face, excessive sweating or shows that it is not at ease during a first meeting, then you will have many elements to understand that maybe, even if you like how he/she sings, he/she is not a good teacher.

Since in life you will always find a better teacher or someone who knows more about it than us, it is good to understand also when you have learned everything from a teacher. In fact, it is unlikely to be able to exceed one’s own master, in time one can only hope to equal him/her. Clearly, the better the teacher is, the faster the learning will be and the greater the final level reached.

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. 

Things haven’t changed today. I was myself chosen as a Topic Expert for teaching a Communication Skill course. In fact, what I am teaching today is not yet part of any codified study “subject”. There is no book that shows it yet, apart from the one I have written. I am a pioneer of vocal coaching and have been reached by those who want to create a new type, of course, something that previously did not exist. Obviously, my fame precedes me, the results I get talks for themselves, but it is not always like that. In fact, today we find an infinite number of people who claim to be able to teach how to use the voice, sing or give speeches, yet almost no one has achieved fame for achievements related to their own voice skills.

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.

Thanks to my popularity, every day I receive dozens and dozens of emails from all over the world. Many are written by people who for one reason or another find themselves with some serious voice problem. Only a very limited minority of them have already identified their causes in prolonged and incorrect use of vocal cords. The vast majority are unwilling to understand or accept the idea that the cause of their problems is to be found in the very way they use their voice. In fact, many of them have followed some specific training in the past, so they are convinced that they are already “ skilled “ and that they have never mistreated their vocal cords. There’s no such thing as a skill when you develop vocal cord problems.

The art of using voice, elocution, rhetoric, dialectic, and singing is something as simple as it is complex. All these words I mentioned have a very precise meaning, but essentially they aim to express the same idea: to communicate effectively the feelings of the soul

None of these words refers to or implies, any technical ability, any particular talent or any miraculous education. These are all capabilities available to every human being! So it should be easy to understand that any teaching aimed at something other than effectively communicating one’s feelings to others should be avoided.

Finding your Inborn Voice

This is the title given by Elle to my interview.

I’m so proud that such a famous magazine has chiose me to spread the voice on how important is the Vocal Health and the correct training of the voice.

On the article you can read, that the Inborn voice «is the one that everyone has “inside” and would like – but we are not able – to let it emerge. Mylena Origgi, vocal coach from Boston, will help you find your Inborn Voice. And this is not only for singers or speaker, but for everyone! Letting out inborn voice free means finding your real essence.»

You can continue reading «Some people will listen to the voice recorded and say: “That’s not me!”. Some people run away from karaoke, some have a such “noisy” voice that no one will ever leave a voicemail for them (making them feel bad!), some speak with very low volume, some even stutter. And there is also who want to seduce, to enchant or, why not, to sing, but they simply feel this is not for them.»

The Interview continue with this question: What is the miracle you do to people’s voices? Tone deaf that sing in tune, shy people that become confident, how? «There is no miracle. Everyone has an “outer” voice, the one that we don’t love and that don’t resonate within, and everyone has the “inner” voice, the one we would like to sound out in the world but we are not able to. My job is to help anyone finding their voice: the cleanest, the natural and the most energy voice».

The last question of the interview is: What is the best outcome of training a voice with you? «Self estime. You are finally in tune with yourself. You listen yourself and you recognize yourself in your voice. Your voice is the mirror of your soul».

I suggest you to buy the magazine to read the full interview, but you can preview it by clicking on the cover image.

Here is a photo of me with the magazine in Brooklyn, NY! Do I look happy?

How to have a sexy voice?

The female Magazine “Donna Moderna” publishes in the issue dedicated to Valentine’s Day an interview of me where I explain how to acquire a sensual voice!

How to get a sexy voice? This question is very common to me, so it seems useful to write a few words about it.

Well, what’s a sexy voice?

In the common imaginary is the voice that we have heard over and over in the movies, during the romantic moments of some films that probably have been dubbed in post production.
Actually, that kind of voice is not the one really being used by the actress, but the one “faked” by the voice over artist, not even involved in the scene of the film.
Many times we are inclined to associate the voice to the images, so one of the voices we have heard, for example in the films of Marilyn Monroe or Clark Gable, have defined a standard of fact of “sensual” voice. Instinctively you are led to associate that kind of sound with sensuality, but if you could hear the original voices of the actor in a real moment of romance, you will be shocked to discover how much what you hear has nothing to do with the idea of sensuality that you built inside.

Well, once you have established that the sensual voice you hear in the movies has nothing to do with the sensuality expressed by the actor’s body, you must therefore define what a sensual voice is. A concept that is not easy to place in the modern era, linked by a double thread with rationality. To understand more, it is enough to discover what is a sense, that is, something that does not belong to the intellect, something primordial, far from logic.

Petrarch wrote, “Where the senses reign, reason is dead.”

And here is were my method,Inborn Voice, reigns supreme. In fact, the sensual voice is the one that arises spontaneously when you are in perfect harmony and in perfect tune with your self, without inhibitory restrictions or preconceptions related to the mind. It’s the voice that springs spontaneously in intimacy, when you don’t use your mind to place yourself in narrow and narrow boxes like “I’m fat”, “I have cellulitis”, “I’m bald”, and so on. Whenever you don’t use your mind to communicate part of yourself, of your soul, you use, by definition, a sensual voice.

The voice you hear in the movies is therefore an “artificial” and ” fake” voice. It seems sensual only because of the images that pass as you listen and the suggestion that is created. So the golden rule is not to copy it! It would immediately appear false, in moments of true intimacy. Among other things, that kind of voice is so-called “airy”, and is one of the most dangerous types of phonation for vocal cords, since it dehydrates them a lot.

So if you are a voice actor and want to learn how to make a ” sexy ” voice for the cinema, I can definitely help you to grasp all the secrets of this type of phonation, but if you are looking to be REALLY sensual, then my Inborn Voice method is what you need to be able to use all the sensuality of your being in tune and in sync.

If you click on the image of the magazine, you can read the whole article!

Your voice speaks about You. An App can improve it


Sanremo has always been linked to the world of singing, not only for Italy, but also for all Italians around the world. I too, very young, was able to be part of it. Unfortunately or luckily, if you’re dealing with music or singing, this is the best showcase in which to be noticed.

Obviously I now live and work in Boston, but also this year I was present with some part of me. Only the people in charge of the sector have heard about it, but apparently something has reached the public level too!

On Tu Style, the magazine of the Mondandori group, of February 7, 2018 appeared this small article that reads:

Together with your look, your voice determines the first impression you leave on others. To get to know it better, download the free app Singing Lessons: it analyses your voice and puts you in touch with a Vocal Coach who works via Skype and, if necessary, suggests you exercises to improve it.

All my students from all over the world who have chosen to release a video testimony will be very happy: now they will be seen by a few hundred thousand more people!
