Mission Statement about Curiously Strong Singing

I just tightened up my website a bit (www.mezzoid.com) and am moving some text from there to here because I don’t want to lose it. It’s my raison d’etre, my mission statement, my philosophy, whatever you want to call it.

I am a firm believer that singing is the coordination of natural functions in a way to ensure a sound that is natural, free, attractive, and feels really terrific.

Singers are vocal athletes. The best athletes are not only strong, they are flexible and they are aligned so they can perform with ease. They are in command of their bodies – which are their instruments. In this way, singers are closer to athletes than any other musician. Our instrument is not external to us, it is not something we can put in a case and stuff in a closet. We carry it with us everywhere we go. We are curiously strong.

We breathe to live. We breathe to sing. We balance our breath energy in order to create a beautiful tone. It’s all about balance, in our bodies and in our spirits. And that’s what I’m here to help you find. Balance.
