I will teach you how to sing with a good technique, online voice lessons

Methodology

My technique is bel canto for beautiful singing and perfect resonance.

No matter which level you might be, you will learn the theory about body and voice anatomy, ear training, diction, body language, performance, audition/competition preparation, as well as understanding sound production.

Defining bad habits, removing vocal weaknesses are both mandatory to anyone willing to work on its voice development, perfect resonance, and technique progress.

Remember that singing is natural, and the sound produced by the vocal cords is carried on the breath. This is the technique of ‘bel canto’ which means beautiful singing.

Each lesson is divided into 3 main parts:
‱ Breathing exercises, correct posture reminder, and stretching mobility
‱ Warm-up exercises to stretch the vocal muscles: starting with a single-note, interval, and scale using pure vowels, words, and song phrases. Humming, straw, lip rolls, vocal sirens, Plenty of exercises tailored based on your level, ensuring never to make you feel bored of this essential routine
‱ 3rd part is usually the fun part where you apply all the basics into a song study and interpretation. We agree on the choice of your repertoire, pitch, and rhythm, try to sing-along with the original song, Acappella, acoustic, and karaoke.

Background

This is Rita your voice teacher!
With more than 11 years of experience in music academies and online, I teach students teenagers and adults up to 65 years old, music genres such as pop, pop-opera or crossover, soul, R&B, rock, musical theater, and of course classical as it is my specialty where I attended masterclasses, workshops and opera studios around the globe.

If you are a beginner or advanced looking for a good technique and perfect resonance, this is the place to start!
