As a holistic voice practice, teaching for someones empathy, their spiritual growth, and for their physical technique in voice can be a daunting yet exciting adventure!

Teaching in the mind, body, and spirit discipline simultaneously has to do with finding the balance between each of these aspects and bringing awareness to the student.

Each client has their own strengths and weaknesses naturally: some are physically active, while some are very mentally disciplined, or spiritually adventurous. They find their own common balance with in the method and it’s techniques as they explore the different options for growth and strength. Their voice benefits as a result of attention to all 3 parts.

I as a teacher have enjoyed seeing my fellow apprentices and teachers grow their own clientele and rosters with adventuresome and exciting new mantras, analogies, and symbols.

Kianna Osorio, a VW coach, has grown her roster with some analogies that relate to the movement of the body as it associates with the mental discipline of finding ones zen. Peace of mind eases the social anxiety of singing for others and of remembering lyrics while singing repertoire.

As acoustic science is the base of our method, We have several exercises and ways of biting modalities across mind/body/spirit, and integrating the three parts into a whole. Soon, the new person emerges more confident, focused, and calm.

Naomi Thibodeaux, a VW coach, comments on the growth of her senior students as they re-join the choir and church communities. “I really love the experience of seeing the growth in each and every student, seeing their voices and a residence patterns develop and seeing the new found confidence.”

 We really LOVE the results that we find as we approach each and every voice with care, sophistication, and or well worn time-tested set of techniques, examples, and exercises. The overall approach brings superior results to the singing voice. Eventually, clients begin galvanizing self- motivation and keeping their own practice active, healthy, and whole.

We’ve recently begun a songwriting celebrity class just last month with celebrity songwriting specialist Divinity Roxx — musical director and bass player for Beyoncé and many others.

In working with a list of artists and their teams, we endeavor to our training on the cutting edge of all necessary and helpful modules for maintaining the sustaining vocal health and growth.

It is is very fun to watch as a younger students, as young as nine years old, take a hold of our method with excitement as they learn new things, to give meaning to the mind and spirit principles of what their bodies are doing.
