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.

This is what was 60 years ago a singing lesson!

In the 1960s, the idea of what a singing lesson should be, is exactly what you can see in this gag by Jerry Lewis. A teacher, more or less pompous, entrenches himself behind a piano and pushes the pupil to ruin his voice.

We can really laugh at that still 60 years later, but there are still people who believe that this kind of scene is a real Singing Lesson!
In my career as a Vocal Coach, I met a lot of people who thought they had learned to sing in this type of lesson.
They all realized that they had not learned something a little too late.

If you recognize yourself in this type of lesson and you are aware that you are not getting the results you are looking for, or worse, you have already developed vocal problems (you lose your voice, you have frequent sore throats, you feel choked) it doesn’t fall to you!

Your voice is something delicate and precious, I can help you genuinely improve it!

As of today the videos of Singing Lessons have been displayed 39,656 times on YouTube! Thank you all!

Book on how to learn to sing and speak correctly

In all of the bookstores in Italy and Online you will find available the results of my collaboration with some of the most well-known vocal coaches in the world. The book on how to learn to sing and speak correctly is titled “Libera la tua voce”. The book presents a method of teaching adaptable to those who want to learn on their own, and it is complete with an instructional CD that contains exercises and has piano accompaniments for male and female voices. It is not necessary to know how to read music, it is enough to listen to the examples included and repeat them clearly as it is explained in the book.
You will find also exercises for breathing and posture. This book can surely also help those who don’t want to learn on their own, but are looking for a good singing teacher and want to avoid possible negative consequences by choosing the wrong professional.

If you are interested in buying the book “Libera la tua voce” (written in Italian only) you can send me an email of request to:
