“I love working with the voice, teaching and singing, anything from original compositions, Singer/Songwriter, Rock, Metal, Pop, R&B, Jazz, Soul, Blues or Musical Theatre live on stage or studio. This is where my heart opens up because I can put myself into my clients’ situation and reflect on the best course of action to suit their needs or perspectives. So if you want to rock with me ping me and don’t be a stranger.”

 

 

The IVA technique is based on 17th and 18th Century principles of singing developed by the Old Italian School of Singing.  Our goal is to train voices to sing in a free and natural manner, smoothly, from the bottom of the range to the top with no breaks or sudden changes in quality. Training in this technique gives the singer access to all dynamics, with tonal clarity and flexibility.  Also, training in this technique helps improve a singer’s range, endurance, stamina, breath control, resonance, vocal strength and vocal quality across all styles of music without fatigue or damage to the voice. We accomplish these results by training the singer to find a balance between airflow and intrinsic muscular resistance, all within a resting laryngeal posture.
