    My Mission Some vocal teachers instruct students (and I quote) to “Sing from the diaphragm!" However, I say: How can you? "The vocal cords are not in the diaphragm”... Yet, this instruction implants a subliminal message that instructs the student to blow more air. At least 90% of the time - very harmful! Although it is very true, that breathing is very important, nearly every student who enters their 1st voice lesson will state, they need to work on their breathing exercises; I just listen… The truth is, the largest problem experienced by the overwhelming majority of singers

Our Visual Feedback Technique (VFT) illuminates vocal characteristics that may not be clearly perceived by the student otherwise. For instance, if the student is having difficulty in matching pitch, then the display will show the student the target pitch compared to the pitch they are singing to help them
