(And don’t hesitate to consult the Testimonials)

For more than 20 year, I deliver professional lessons of Vocal Technique to any person wishing to improve their singing, their tunefulness, their note-holding, their  voice coloring (vocal tone) etc. as well as those who, without having a professional purpose, want to learn to sing. I have trained and taught several professional singers such as Driss Farrio, Marsha Kate et Nedjim Mahtallah.

I teach all that concerns the technique: posture, breathing, voice placement, note placement, vowel placement, transition notes work, voice coloring work (vocal tone), etc.

I also do specific Coaching, before recordings for example.

The teaching I received and deliver is primarily based on the works of E. Herbert Caesari, that I discovered through my singing master, David Kaufmann, who was himself one of his direct students. This Italian technique of “the natural voice”, allows us to acquire a great mastery of our instrument, without altering or ‘formatting’ the voice.

But singing and the teaching of singing are for me a passion. That is why I constantly continue to go looking for and discovering techniques, practices, and knowledge, which are still unknown to me. That is why I don’t hesitate to attend workshops, master classes and lessons with other professionals, such as Amanda Ambrose, Raven Kane-Campbell, Viviane Ginapé, Sarah Lazarus, Laura Littardi, and more recently Sheila Jordan and Jay Clayton.

It’s also the reason pushing me to continue the study of singing and teaching through reference works, such as “Ce que chanter veut dire” by Colette Wyss, “Professeur de Chant : un luthier qui construit une voix » by Jacqueline Bonnardot, or «Singing your Story» by Jay Clayton.

The important thing to note about my way of working is, first of all, the particular care I take to not modify the individual’s voice. As the technique I use does not mold the voice, I have students who sing Classical, Jazz, Pop, Soul, Rock, French Chanson, etc.

But also, I try to teach and make my students acquire the knowledge and understanding of the practice of singing and music. My aim is not only to develop the person’s voice and to allow it to express itself with all its colors, but also for the person to acquire a complete training, and thus be able to correct herself and know how to deal with the difficulties she meets, during recordings for example.

It is interesting to know that the vocal technique allows, among other things, to expand one’s range, to enrich one’s tone, to develop more power, to find it easier to pass from one voice color to another without any ‘break’ (to go from the head voice to the chest voice without the sound ‘falling’ for example), to not tire the voice needlessly, and to therefore acquire more stamina. The objective is to reach a vocal mastery allowing the singer to express all that it wishes with ease and to be able to have fun with its voice.

Beyond the practice of the vocal instrument, I also teach the basic principles of Music, enabling singers to know how to situate themselves within a tune, within a band, etc.

For those who wish, music theory, the basics of harmony, rhythm, are taught and practiced in parallel.

Finally, for Jazz lovers, I also teach how to learn a new tune, understand and work on cycles, etc.

The lessons are individual and last 1 hour, 1 hour and ½, or 2 hours, according to the students’ needs. It is possible to start classes at any time of the year. One can, and it’s even recommended, to record the lessons.

The workshops are proposed at specific times or on demand (for a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 10 students). For the workshops, I can travel outside Paris or abroad.

As answer to a frequent question, know that most of the time, the problems of tunefulness  are only due to a lack of technique, but sometimes it does not resolve in a few hours and can request a regular investment.

Also, concerning teenagers, vocal technique will not be applied to them fully. As the larynx is not fully mature until the age of 23, it is important not to force the voice.

If you have other questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
