What a gift it is to hear a precise phonation, the ring of overtones, the fluid stretch of the breath over the soft beating of time in a phrase of artistic expression. What a gift to be so wholly concentrated in creating that we feel we are being played as an instrument by some inspired and compassionate part of our selves that has no desire but to uplift.This is the true purpose of technical study: to be so immersed in this gift that it is all we share every time we speak or sing. No matter what archetype we are animating, no matter what story we are telling, no matter what jagged or liquid melody we are offering, its potential is to be medicine. An accomplished performer can share treasures of the heart and throw open the doors to unlimited imagination.
This, and nothing less, is what happens when vowels are complete and resonant on every pitch, when the breath is quiet and perfectly paced, when the body is aligned and engaged. Hours of practice disappear behind excellence so that a deeper creative spirit can emerge to enrich first you, and then others.
It is my passion and my joy to support you to develop the alignment and congruence of your one beautiful voice so that you may express freely and uniquely what is yours alone to give.
