Singing makes you feel better: is a wise and ancient saying. Those of you who follow me know how much I have fought on an international level to defend this idea, fighting against those who promise to teach innocent souls how to sing, but in reality they just make fun of them, exploit them and above all, ruin their voices. I’ve won this battle at an international level, becoming the benchmark Vocal Coach for many professionals around the world, but ironically my country has become the home of junk teaching.
I invite you to listen to this video testimony in hopes that it will bring some light into your life.
Mylena Vocal Coach’s series of interviews continues, this time in Donna Moderna, with an exclusive article explaining how to express emotions using the voice, something that seems always taken for granted. Singing is about conveying emotions, of course, but are you sure you know how to do it? It’s normal for someone who sings to get emotional, but that doesn’t mean he or she is able to convey emotions to others. If the listener is already emotionally connected with the one who sings, he will see in him some of his own emotions and will not be able to recognize if they are of internal or external origin. Being able to transmit emotions is not so simple, good reading!
Now that the world is starting again, it makes you wonder how people have had to learn to communicate in new and different ways. Some have discovered the power of technology and started taking all kinds of lessons online. As a pioneer of this tool, since I’ve been working online with the world for over 10 years, with over 20,000 sessions to my credit, I wasn’t surprised.
But the thing that impressed me the most, and apparently also impressed the rest of the world, reaching incredible numbers on social media, was the desire to communicate and vent their emotions using their voice. It’s nothing new that singing is a good outlet. Yes, just that singing that started to spread with great success starting from the balconies of many Italian and European cities.
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.
This new year opens with big news ahead. In fact, just after my re-entry in the United States, I will be in Manhattan, New York City with an event of great international relevance.
I will be interviewed in a public presentation by La Stampa correspondent Francesco Semprini, in an event that will also bring my Vocal Coaching revolution to New York. From that date, in fact, I will start with my new studio’s adventure in the Big Apple, the first Italian Vocal Coach to succeed in this great achievement. In addition to Milan, London and Boston, I will also have a studio in Manhattan!
After a long wait and following the many requests coming from my clients and my collaborators, I finally gave birth to my book which tries to explain in simple words and within everyone’s reach, the philosophy behind my teaching method: Inborn Voice.
With this book, anyone can taste the enormous complexity that sustains the world of the voice, spoken and sung, and how the ability to harness one’s own voice is the only real secret to personal success and happiness in one’s life.
Learning to sing, to speak or to communicate in the right way, without doing any physical or “spiritual” harm, succeeding moreover in making emotions flow from one’s own depth in a natural and spontaneous way, is something extremely difficult and far from the classical or modern vocal teaching, that is, through vocalizations, warbles and the like next to a piano.
I am confident that you will like the book and help you to glimpse your Inbon Voice!
The flagship, the Way of the Voice, has been included in the bibliography of the course of Communication Techniques of the Catholic University of the Holy Heart, which makes me even more proud of all the efforts I make every day to carry out, as a pioneer, this vocal revolution.
Boston has a marathon as beautiful and famous as the one in New York, but the big apple offers something extra, especially for us Italians.
This year I went to New York by bus, to avoid queues and expensive parking.
This year all the newspapers are talking about the fact that, after 40 years, an American has finally won the most famous marathon in the United States.
I have always been fascinated by people who practice sports with perseverance and passion. Of course, to get to run a marathon you need something bigger.
The NYC Marathon is a unique event for runners. When they share their experience with me, I see their eyes illuminate and the energy that shines through them makes me want to run too!
Through their words I can imagine running through the streets of the world’s belly button and it’s a real magic.
An interesting fact, among all those presented is that the marathon is slowing down. Today more and more people face the marathon and although they are “super” men and women, most of them “ruin” the average. In 1980, the average of those who completed the competition was just over four hours, today we are over four and a half hours. That’s more than twice as many as the first ones.
Almost all those who officially participate in the event arrive at the finish line, then there are those like me who participate only to see some glimpses of the city otherwise unreachable.
I still congratulate the winner: what you earn with hard work and determination has a true and eternal flavor!
It is increasingly frequent to watch comedies or movies in which, through parody, the naked and raw reality is placed right under our noses.
If you look at the first seconds of the trailer for this movie, you will be clear what I mean.
Here in the United States, the wealthy population periodically goes to the “shrink”, or psychotherapist. Not that in Italy it’s too different.
The necessity of modern society is to name things. When a person suffers for some reason he does not find peace until someone labels his problem with a diagnosis.
At that point, the problem is no longer a problem, but has a name and becomes something to talk and brag about.
Stopping to speculate on the reasons for a suffering, the work of the “Shrink”, or getting to give it a grand name, the work of the “specialists” doctors, in no way solves the suffering.
My work very often leads me to work with people desperately looking for the reason for their suffering or a diagnosis that labels their problem.
None seems to want to solve the sickness, the problem. If a bird has been poking into your ear, one of my voice workshops might brighten you up!
