Welcome to my new site!

I’m in the process of setting it up. Please check back…

Vocalises

Every teacher establishes their own pedagogy using ‘vocalises,’ a set of etudes for student singers. The links below feature identical figures, but with piano tracks in the keys for each vocal range.

I’m happy to share, but would love to hear from you first. Please contact me for access.

Vocalises Mezzo

Vocalises Tenor

Objective

Coordinating an under-vowel gesture that extends beyond the written melody. The phantom notes above each arpeggio are opportunities to practice shape without phonation; the third double-long arpeggio adds correct appoggio to continue phonation throughout.

Nota bene

Singer continues leaning breath into and during the phantom note, only releasing immediately before inhalation and the following onset.
