The classes are directed to all those who like or care about singing. With an approach to various music styles and genres, from Pop to Rock, Soul, Jazz, Funk, Blues, etc. Regardless of style, the program can range from a beginner's singing level to a high level where vocal knowledge and experience already exist.
Preparation and development for vocal improvisation is something that I consider very important both in exploring different vocal possibilities and vocal extension.
The physical and emotional connection to voice is also addressed in singing lessons contributing to greater confidence and singing ability
The technical part focuses mainly on the Jo Estill system which allows a deep and systematic knowledge about the anatomy, physiology, and acoustics of the voice.
Classes are given individually according to the needs and characteristics of each person. More or less intensified depending on the intended objectives.
About my methodology, the focus is on you. Teaching is geared to your needs and potentials, developing an awareness of your voice so that you can use it in accordance with your goals without damaging it.
My approach is based on the voice-body-mind connection and voice physiology (vocal technique).
JAZZ / SOUL / BLUES:
Approach to a posture and vocal aesthetics of black roots, looking for a warmer vocal coloration. Preparation for improvisation and approach to "standards" and other songs such as "Fly me to the moon"; "Summer Time"; "Amazing Grace" among others.
POP ROCK :
A musical genre aesthetically known as "throat singing". Here it is intended to relieve tension in the vocal folds and excessive laryngeal pressures, causing much vocal damage and aphonia.
The safe approach to drive, the use of compression for chest voice extension and mixed voice are the main proposals.
A style usually characterized by the use of a very powerful posture where vocal power is associated with the force that the performer gives to his voice, and this logic of force is a very common mistake. In order to avoid unnecessary strain and injury, I propose to ensure good physical support with the use of "anchors" and a good understanding and development of the "drive" ensuring a good "guttural"
Its characteristics are reflected directly in the vocal approach, it will not be a lightening of the voice, but a progression according to the dynamics and structures. The use of colors and intensities will be a big bet.
The musicality associated with body movement and text where voice and choreography are linked together. Here "Belting" is the king of the party. A moment that everyone longs for, but to know how to execute it safely and confidently.
Approach to the classical repertoire through the exploration of the various registers with their placement of the voice. Recognition and development of resonances and respiratory technique characteristic of this singing approach.
There are currently numerous vocal approaches to fado, with a traditional singing and very Portuguese roots. The intention of the text and the value of the words will be paramount, being the "soul" of the voice a constant link in this approach.
Each case is a case and each voice has its own characteristics regardless of style.
Still, within each style, there are several different approaches, dynamics, and voice colors that can be developed.
I consider the voice a means of communication par excellence, for everything that composes it, from its origin to it's
to its development. Not only in its aesthetic sense, but also in its opposite extreme, the creation of
our own language of our sonority, our vocabulary.
The approach to a broad concept, where openness to proposals for experimentation and development by
part of each of the elements that compose it, either from a practical, theoretical, physical, or emotional point of view.
Our place, opened by its very nature.
Based on the Roy Hart Theater, in this space, we create and develop.
The reading of texts, their interpretation and approach through vocalization and non-verbal language as
your interaction with singing will be our basis of work. We will find openness to others
horizons, where everything crosses and meets.
In 1930 Alfred Wolfsohn, began a work of teaching and research on the voice based on the development of the human psyche. Since psychology was still taking its first steps, Alfred quickly had extraordinary results with the people he taught, not only vocal but also psychological.
Roy Hart, a gifted South African actor from Johannesburg, received a scholarship from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London. Here he realized that something was missing: the connection between his being and the actor was not complete. The meeting with Alfred Wolfsohn led him to abandon a promising career as an actor and for the next seventeen years he did not do any acting.
Emerges in 1969 in a period of great artistic intensity and psychotherapeutic activity and in 1972 begins to work with its own company of theater, Roy Hart Theater, at the time with more than forty members.
In 1974 the company assumed its residence in Malérargues in the south of France. Roy died in 1975 in a car accident, however, its members continued the development of their work that is now known worldwide.
New generations of teachers have developed, continued and spread the legacy of Wolfshon and Hart.
I am part of this new generation.
