Vocal technique, strategies for new coordinations

– What is your job?
– Create problems to create new habits. Said in other terms when there are bad habits that it is required to be changed and not contained (less freedom and less effectiveness if just contained) the thing is to create conditions in which the new habits desired contain the solution and the previous bads cannot find it.
Below this excellent article to explain what habits are and how to find them, so it can be more clear the strategies I adopt in my work.

Why your brain builds habits

Vocal fundamentals: talks on sustain

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

Talks on Cossu method

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.

What means in sound the proper diaphragm connection in yet good singer.

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!

Fundamentals. What means sustain first.

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 ✨🙏🏻
