Vocal Technique

I have loved to sing ever since I was a young child. Being selected for solos in grammar school chorus productions was so exciting for me. Singing always came so naturally to me so I never thought I needed to take lessons. I tried with a couple teachers but never really felt excited about it until I met Linda Benanti. I studied with Linda for over 10 years and she taught me her amazing technique, the Linda Benanti Voice Technique. After I had been teaching for a couple of years, I quit my day job to pursue my solo music career. I took a huge leap of faith. I will never forget the day I walked into my lesson in a panic and said "Linda what am I going to do now for money?!" Very unexpectedly she said "Why don't you come teach for me?" Although I never had any teaching experience I jumped at the opportunity because I trusted she saw something in me. She had faith in me that I would become a great teacher. I’ve been teaching for over 13 years.

Being a good singer comes down to proper technique which incorporates BODY, MIND and SPIRIT.

BODY-The most important aspects of the body portion are breath, posture and making a nice big space in the back of the throat by raising the soft pallet and stretching the tongue down. It is hard work but there are many exercises we do to train each of those specific areas.

MIND-Mindset plays a very important role. Positive thinking and patience are key. Learning to sing properly is a very slow process and there are always improvements to be made. Be gentle with yourself.

SPIRIT-Discovering and making the deepest connection with yourself is important in setting yourself apart from the rest. Singing is such a wonderful form of expressing our true selves. Don’t try to imitate other singers. It’s never too late to find YOUR voice.

What I enjoy most about teaching are the personal connections I build with each individual student. It brings me such joy to see a student improve their voice, technique and confidence. Whether you want to improve your voice for karaoke or your church choir or pursue a career in singing, the Linda Benanti Voice Technique is absolutely proven to provide you with the tools necessary to get to your destination. I work with all genres of music and students of all ages ranging from 9 and up.

It's never too late to find your voice and explore the creativity of singing.
