Irina Fields, Voice Teacher of beautiful voice nyc
I grew up loving music and earning to sing. Initially, I was really terrible at singing. My mother used to always tell me that singing is a talent some are born with and those who weren't will never be able to sing. However, I couldn't help but notice that singers with beautiful voices sound somewhat similar to each other. And it occurred to me that, since we have similar bodies, perhaps great singers are doing similar things with their to produce a beautiful sound.
On a quest to see it that is the case, I spent year of studying various vocal technique. For many years I had little to no improvement. As I later learned, it was because most vocal techniques do not address the aspects of singing that you need control of in order to gain pitch control, vocal beauty and more.
Eventually, I came across Bel Canto, an Italian Opera Technique. This technique holds the key to pitch control, beautiful vocal tone, powerful high notes and more. Most teachers that teach it only know bits and pieces of the technique and do not teach you how to apply it to contemporary styles of music. The teachers who know complete Bel Canto in pure form are very hard to find and it's even harder to get lessons with them. The pure and complete version of this technique is what enabled me to develop the voice I've always wanted. It gave me pitch control and transformed my voice from small, thin, whiny and generic into big, rich, unique and beautiful voice.
I never thought that this dramatic of change was possible. But it did happen to me and it could happen to you. You just have to believe, learn the right technique and be persistent. "Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in."
