The voice is one of the most interesting and fascinating instruments because of its infinite variety of sounds, and for the fact that every single voice is unique. In my classes, I help students to explore their instrument beyond the simple concept of learning a melody and repeating it, showing them how to use their voice at its full potential of expression. I like to teach the technique together with the interpretation, going through every musical style. I firmly believe that there is something to learn from every genre, and I think that the listening process is an essential step to find our own personal voice. There is a whole world hidden behind what we think “singing” is; in my class I like to guide the students through this discovery of their personal inner musical talent, in order to become a real singer and not just a mere vocalist.
