I have started to take lessons with an instructor. She is 25 yrs old and not certified. What I find “different” is that she is giving me theory, teaching me how to read music and uses to piano for that purpose. When I took lessons in Madrid we went straight into the scales and we used the words” do re mi fa sol la si”. She uses A B C…etc. Do you think this is a good style? I love your CDs and I use them both. Maybe Kathy is not the right instructor for voice. Hopefully I will.
You sound so Italian, I would love to meet you. I spent years in Rome with the U.S. Embassy and Italian is a language I love and would like to keep it.
Have a nice weekend,
Hello, There are many approaches to teaching voice. Using solfege (do re Mi- as in my v.2 CD), warming up to songs, just warming up to vowels, singing the letter notes of the scales, (A B C…)
What matters most is that your voice feels good and that you are improving and not regressing in your vocal production. You should like your teacher and enjoy the lessons that you take. You should never feel any strain or unnatural singing. Other than that, trust your instinct and study with someone who makes you feel good about singing.
