Those are quite flexible classes, you can drop in sometimes or always and you will find some basics and sometimes more advanced exercises. Breath classes are based on my exercises and their results, they are not vocal classes. I will help the correct breathing to come back with my specific exercises (news about my exercises on YouTube or in the page Cossu method) The vocal classes are oriented to basics of vocal technique that we will do together and some that you can do at home and for which I will teach tips and exercises to find the correct and healthy way of using them. We will also use some songs proposed by me or that you can propose to the class and they will be material for the class. Come and enjoy.
They are located in W14, London
Soon some online classes also.
It is required the booking, contact me at the form below or at email@example.com
Talk on sustain, the third part where I do explain what was one of the central point of Italian belcanto technique: to have overcome technically the muscular response of fight/flight and by that having a voice related on sustain. https://youtu.be/MaqK6vD1uJo
The complete vocal technique playlist on Youtube. A playlist with explanations on vocal fundamentals and concepts and my exercises. Yeah yeah yeah I am doing that happy and joyful thing to put online all my exercises because happiness is knowledge shared.
Workshops of max 8 participants, 90 minutes 10£ , W14 London
Every week two small classes for professionals or advanced.
Monday 2 pm
Thursday 12 noon
Those classes are specific for advanced, are practical technical classes, every week a different subject. I will propose the questions in here but they can also be something that one of the participants brings and we can decide to make the week after the workshop on that so that I will give some ideas of work if necessary. My propositions will be on central questions of vocal technique, like how to find a sustain for specific voice, how and when apply copertura (on what purpose and style of sound), tips and exercises and strategies to improve or to maintain the voice, in what extension and how doing some of the more usual vocalisations, how to work with appoggio or sustain in different styles, how to build our voice respecting the instrument we have but looking for a more personal signature, how to warm up or vocalise before or after gigs. It is not thought as classes to be always followed, you can come on a subject and come back to make the point when the same subject is again at the agenda.
To book that write to me in the form below or at firstname.lastname@example.org
If some cannot on those hours I am thinking about an evening class, write to me if interested and we can manage the thing, just it will not be at my place and I will need a minimum of confirmed 6 participants every time to look for a place. In this case the place can also be east or north.

We are at the end of these 6 weeks, Alice Robber performs again. She decides to stream it on her Instagram while we stream on Youtube. She decides to sing 5 songs. She risks more, enjoy.
What nice to talk with a former student who has an interesting view on our work and my method from his medical job; and so nice that not only he is smart as he was but his band will get back rehearsing. Thank you Alex, still pleased of having had you between my students.
Singer since very young, it is twelve months she studies with me. You will hear that she is quite in order but there is a huge difference in bewteen the Dianne Reeves and Alicia Keys’s songs and Withney Houston’s one: this is the diaphragm connection that I long looked for her, not perfect yet in all the passages but connected and so it will be possible to train it and have those passages perfects just by using it and remaining connected. Enjoy!
Yesterday I wrote about what I choose as order of working for the sound today (I slightly made another kind of few years ago, according to differences in contemporary requests and the sense of sound that changes adapting to more subtle things then just taste).
Well, sometimes it is impossible for some to simply use some sustain in a form that will create by itself enough copertura not to strain the vocal chords while developing it. So? So I invented some exercises having an effect on the muscular chain related to copertura so to unblock this important issue. Today or tomorrow I will do a tutorial about those exercises.
Share knowledge, happiness is knowledge shared. Be great and not mean ✨🙏🏻
Here the tutorial with some exercises https://youtu.be/w_jcr1tVkuY
