my teaching style
This line by my favorite poet Mary Oliver is what I’m helping my students explore:
Vocal technique is the holy grail of singing. Without technique, literally nothing else is possible.
Technique is the foundation of singing. Just like a house, if your foundation isn’t solid, the floor will eventually cave in. It’s the same in singing.
Without a technical foundation, a singer can’t realize their dreams because their vocal capabilities will be limited.
but what is technique anyway, Sarah?
It took me years to understand what everyone in Conservatory was talking about when they talked about technique.
Here’s my simple explanation:
Just because my lineage is classical doesn’t mean I teach opera singers. In fact, none of my students are classical at the moment, but they’re learning knockout technique that supports whatever genre they love to sing.
wanna work on your technique?
I would love to hear about your singer!
