"I have an individual approach to each student, and I try to offer them a safe environment to feel comfortable and free to explore and learn. My goal is to help my students find their own voices, their uniqueness, and give them tools in order to manage as a musician in the professional world. After 30 years in my musical career, I try to teach what I think is most important for a vocalist."
"A musical piece, a song, can be approached from different perspectives: lyrics, melody, rhythm, harmony. For a singer it’s very important to work on all of them, but we have to emphasize the importance of ‘telling’ the lyrics, telling the story, the commitment with the emotional flow of the composition, the importance of intention and attitude."
"We work on vocal technique and on rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic ear training exercises. I want them to understand what’s going on underneath the melody. A singer should understand all the layers that support the melody and not only care about the leading line. That will allow them to move freely inside a song, to improvise, to hear and sing vocal harmonies, and to develop their own version and arrangement."
