My Skills

Voice and Piano Coach

Category: Music
Description
I am known as a miracle worker because the method of ear training that I teach comes from knowing the way we comprehend sound and how it is related to one's voice. The bases of achieving a great voice is understanding vocal placement pertaining to Head tones, chest tones and nasal sound, once you can understand head tones (mostly used in classical singing) then you can fuse what ever style of sing with classical tones. In order to protect the vocals from damage due to harsh singing with out training. That is why classical training should be the basis is vocal training. I am not laid back because it is important to get the best out of each and every individual. My motto to all my students is in order to be great you must Practice, Practice Practice.
