• I work with "Singing/Speaking Voice, in New York, since 2006. This vocal technique assumes that the two voices, the sung and spoken, are actually the same. During training, I awaken the consciousness of the student to the conditions present in his/her voice during speech [Saab Mode, Speech Mode, Twang Mode, narrowing, Theatrical calling and etc.]. So, he/she learns to allow these conditions to continue to act during singing.

  • As a result, one obtains a free, full, natural and harmonious voice; a significant increase in vocal extension; and a beautiful mixed voice between the head and the falsetto voice, in man, and between middle register and head voice, in women.  The technique is perfect for pop music (Pop Music, Rock, Dance, Blues, R&B and etc..) and for musicals, as it gives to the actor/singer necessary balance between the spoken and sung voice. It is widespread in Broadway musicals currently and is a very important and fundamental tool for actors and singers today.
