“I have found speech level singing a workable technique that has facilitated and given me vocal strength and balance.” - Anne Salomaa
Hello my name is Anne SaIomaa and I have taken lessons consistently using Skype (live online lessons) with Maria Pellicano from SingOut™ Singing and Performance School for over 3 years. I have found during this time that having lessons from the convenience of my home is just like any usual lessons in the studio. In our lessons Maria has helped me to address my strong European accent by developing a more western sound, also moving from classical singing style to a contemporary sound and finding vocal consistency and control with the use of specific exercise that will work best to address my vocal issues. I love the method she teaches with as it is consistent and easy to apply during the learning. I have found speech level singing a workable technique that has facilitated and given me vocal strength and balance. I have found my voice feeling much more controlled and I can access my higher vocal register with much more confidence and control. Maria is also very quick at understanding my preferred way of learning and she uses examples that work best for me and helps me understand the concepts easier. I always look forward to our lessons, even if I am busy I rarely skip my lessons.
I have been coached by Maria in SLS for the past 3 years, and I have learnt a lot about vocal control and breathing techniques which have assisted a great deal in my singing endeavours. Her guidance led me to pick up the guitar to accompany my stage performances, and I'm glad to have learnt an instrument in the process.
The confidence boost Maria's training has given me over the years has made me a better singer, and I'm grateful to call her my mentor and close friend.
