CORE Vocal Power is 25+ years worth of my vocal successes, failures and ever-refining process of helping thousands of singers, actors and speakers gain voices that go far beyond what they could have imagined. It is a unique, structured formula that teaches you how to have self-mastery over your instrument, which essentially is all of you–not just your vocal chords.
After earning three degrees, a teaching certificate, and singing professionally since the age of 16, you can imagine - I have learned a lot. But honestly, it has been my students who have taught me the most. In school, they didn't teach me how to not care about what other people think, and overcome nerves, or how to stop my voice from sounding weak in certain situations. They didn't teach me how to gain the mental clarity I needed to commit to the message of the song, and how to win over an audience. But they expected me to do it. Somehow I managed to audition every semester and stay in the program, but even after graduating, I was unable to make sense of why I could pull off certain singing events with power and grace, yet other times–like at important auditions, experience a shaky, voice which seemed to betray me. I knew there was something missing. Something I wasn't taught. So...after I graduated and moved to LA and performed in a couple of shows, I went on hiatus and decided to work on myself and read all the self-help books I could find, study with world-renown coaches, and research every vocal technique known to humankind.
My students? Well...they just kept coming, even though I was barely advertising! As I made my journey, I was doing something that was very effective - but I didn't even know what it was...until I started to listen to my students, and let them teach me.
Then a whole world opened up and I began to see common destructive vocal patterns, and create winning formulas and methods that worked on EVERYBODY who was truly ready, not just a handful of people. After several years of trial and error, C.O.R.E. Vocal Power became what it is today the World's Leading-Edge Holistic Approach to Empowered Singing.
C.O.R.E is a powerful acronym that serves as a structure by which performers can have an empowered voice. It gives singers an opportunity to have a very well-rounded instrument, which means they will have the mental and emotional stability to perform, as well as the physical. Basically, CORE Vocal Power raises the bar for all singing programs because most of them only will provide the last step–exercises. In this program, you work equally in all four steps to give you a solid foundation to sing from.
The four integrative steps of the C.O.R.E. Vocal Power® method, are:
- C - CONNECT
- O - OBJECTIVE
- R - RESONATE
- E - EXERCISES
C.O.R.E. Vocal Power® program is designed to help performers of all ages, styles and levels prepare their entire instrument for empowered vocal expression and mastery.
