‘’ My mission as performer and certified vocal coach is to share all musical experience, empower the singer to perform with ease and control, while maintaining a healthy voice. I love helping my students to grow and discover their voice and strech their abilities. My positive nature and sense of humor help to create a very comfortable and open learning environment.’’
Thanks to IVA Vocal techniques she can share her knowledge of healthy, balanced singing.
The goal is to train voices to sing in a free and natural manner, smoothly, from the bottom of the range to the top with no breaks or sudden changes in quality. This technique gives the singer acces to all dynamics, helps improve vocal range, breath control, endurance, stamina, vocal strength and vocal quality across all styles of music without fatigue or damage to the voice.
