I've developed a rudimentary way of connecting musical thought as your personal language to express oneself, regardless an instrument or voice. Vocalist must find the sound and discover the dimensions of your voice as an instrument. How to create wonderful sounds within the syntax of music expression. This concept is a shared element for every instrument although the physicality to perform the technique becomes the challenge. As a singer first and the Viola, my hand instrument. Viola controls inner harmony and rhythms in the string family. My perspective is unique as I approach as hear and teach the fundamentals. With this approach you will c ... View Profile
