Why did I become a Vocal Coach?
When I first started performing at gigs, no-one had ever taught me how to sing properly, with the right techniques, or how to develop the full potential of my voice. I knew that it was a good voice and on stage, it was ‘good enough’ for a time. Gradually, after singing 3-hour gigs five days a week, I began to notice some very significant issues. I continued performing, but soon enough I barely had any voice left; and so I began the long, frustrating search for a coach who was really knowledgeable in the art and science of the voice, its mechanisms and techniques, its healthy maintenance.
When I finally found the right mentor I committed myself fully and I followed every sound piece of advice that was given. The truth is, I never knew how much there was to learn about the voice and how to use it properly as a singer! By the age of 22, my voice was the best it had ever been: I was in control, my singing was open, effortless and my range became more and more extensive. This changed my life. I was hooked. Now I wanted to help other singers find their best singing voice; I knew from my experience in the industry that many singers had vocal issues and ailments.
I trained hard with my mentor; I studied and learned everything I could about the voice and singing. I trained in all the various techniques that a Vocal Coach must have at his or her fingertips. Now, when I work with clients - whether they are complete beginners still discovering their voice, or professional singers needing help with vocal problems, or wanting to take themselves vocally to the next level – I am rewarded with absolute job satisfaction when we achieve these goals together… because I know how that feels.
