Voice training through function...

What exactly is functional training?  Well, when one's teaching is not bound by aesthetic preference, a student's voice is free to grow into it's full potential through muscular balance.  Each voice should be unique and honest, not predetermined by a teacher's bias toward a specific sound.  A healthy vocal technique may then be used toward a student's preferred genre whether it be classical, musical theater, pop, jazz, country, etc...

 

My 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.  Functional training gives the singer access to all dynamics, with tonal clarity and flexibility where all words are easily pronounced and understood.  Also, it improves 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.
 
To accomplish these results, we work to find a balance between airflow and intrinsic muscular resistance, all within a resting laryngeal posture.
