Soundfly

This advertisement for Soundfly has casting directors and top Broadway talent saying the damn truth: If you want to be a successful musical theater performer, you've simply got to get comfortable reading music, knowing basic theory, and sight-singing.

Their program looks great, and there are lots of other resources online to study these topics. Some people prefer to do the work 1-on-1, and at All Voices + Musics, music reading, theory, and sight-singing are integrated into the work that we do in lessons and coachings. And it actually can be fun, believe it or not!

Everyone has an individual learning style, and taking a course like this one offered by Soundfly, learning from a book, using an app on your phone - alongside private lessons or coachings - is a brilliant way to elevate your performance -- and to empower the hell out of yourself as a musician!

"If you can learn to read music, you are on a whole different level than everybody else that's on Broadway." – James Monroe Iglehart (Tony Award Winner, Aladdin, Hamilton)

Ben Abraham - Speak

Warm and smooth, with just an edge of grit.

Like a kiss in the winter cold from a lover's slightly chapped lips.

Ben Abraham, y'all.

Australian folk artist Ben Abraham recently came into the NYC Paste Studio for a session with us. Abraham, a promising upcoming talent, has recently collaborated with well-known talents such as Gotye and Sara Bareilles. In addition, his top-quality songwriting ability caught the attention of legenda…

Sara Bareilles - She Used to Be Mine (Live on Today Show)

Why do you sing? What is it that you love about singing?

When I am feeling rough - and the business of singing+ teaching+ New York City all seems too much - Sara Bareilles is someone who restores me to myself.

Her commanding skill as a singer, to her emotionally spot-on songwriting, and her being a great human being (she's the real deal -I've got the inside scoop) -- reminds me of the 'why' I sing, why I perform, and why I teach.

Here is Sara singing a song from her new Broadway show 'Waitress'. I hope it can restore you to yourself, as well.

Buckle. Your. Seatbelt. (And take one minute to read this.)

Diamanda Galás is rare in many ways: she has an unbelievable breadth of technical capacity (as both a singer and a pianist), a profound capacity to inhabit her material, a willingness to "go there" that you have likely never experienced -- and a life+career that are inexorably interwoven with the amplifying of the voices of the dispossessed, marginalized, and those hidden away from the world by oppressive structures of power.

***This performance and video are intense -- it's very soft and very loud, alternately intimate and exposed, often intoxicating - and it will make you uncomfortable.***

Don't let her opening and closing the song by repeating the word 'devil' be an excuse not to listen. Galas very consciously uses extremely dark imagery and symbols - and she does it to evoke responses in her audience that we usually avoid having. Her 'Plague Mass' includes texts from Leviticus that she used to aggressively protest the dehumanizing social and political treatment of People With AIDS in the 1980s. She's not saying 'Devil' in an attempt to turn you into a zombie-slave-puppet-minion of Satan -- she's trying to make you feel things that you mostly avoid feeling, and in awakening those feelings, have you engaged in your own humanity in a more visceral and honest way.

Exploring uncomfortable places inside of ourselves - instead of avoiding them - gives us access to whole new ways of being and engaging in our lives, and in the world. Maybe some of the answers to the seemingly impossible dilemmas we are facing in the world right now - would be clearer, if we allowed ourselves to "go there", and to be engaged in our own humanity more viscerally and honestly.

Wow wow wow. It's like Adele's voice and Jessie J's voice had a voice baby - and it grew up and sounded like this. So so beautiful, evocative, and moving. (Says me, at least). I am really humbled by the versatility and breadth of color that the human voice is capable of. Hashtag inspired. #adele #jessiej #hello #inspired

Everybody Sings - even You!

I had a little chat with someone recently who told me that it was "better for the world at large" if they didn't sing. Now, I should tell you - I have pretty strong feelings about singing being part of how human beings are designed/organized to express themselves -- and even stronger feelings about discourses/conversations/cultures/any nonsense that can stifle singing as a flavor of expression. Here's what I said to this someone:

"I apologize on behalf of the world at large. There's a ridiculous level of elitism that has engulfed singing, especially in the U.S. - and then people say sh*tty things to others -- like people have said to you.

Not everyone has the capacity to be a professional singer - but singing is a fundamental part of being a human being, and a lot of people don't sing at all, because of the culture of exclusivity and elitism around it. No one thinks twice about publicly criticizing a "bad singer", and it leaves people feeling embarrassed, so they stop singing altogether.

None of this is to say you need to take voice lessons! It *is* to say that I heartily encourage you to sing, particularly if it's something that people have stifled you from doing. It will enrich your life in both subtle and obvious ways, and it will make you feel good. If you ever want to develop your skill as a singer, then you could find a non-judgy teacher and get better -- but you don't need to do that in order to sing."


I love working with professional singers. It is a particular kind of awesome. I also love working with people who have never studied voice/singing before, and who don't intend to become professional singers - but who are curious and passionate and maybe a little scared about singing. I find that I often learn the most from teaching these latter kinds of folks -- and they are usually terrific students. They're singing because they want to be -- and those of us that make some or all of our living as singers would be wise to be as much like them as we can. Curiosity and passion are contexts that never need to be outgrown in our journey as artists.

Joanna Newsom - Soft as Chalk Live HD

Joanna Newsom is one of my very most favorite singer-songwriters. Here is a lovely clip of her playing and singing on her most recent album, from a few years ago. Her style of singing is rooted in the Appalachian/Shape Note/Sacred Harp tradition, which you don't get to hear a lot of these days (if you ever really have, outside of Appalachia), but it also has her own magnificent, lyrical flavor. I will be posting more of her live singing and videos over the next few days. Enjoy!

Janet Baker - Dido & Aeneas - When I am laid in earth

This is one of the most beautiful arias ever written. This is the most stunning performance of it that I have ever heard or seen. I simply insist that you take a quiet few minutes of your life to listen to a kind of singing that you likely have never experienced.

Dame Janet Baker sings one of the most beautiful arias of all opera, from Purcell's Dido and Aeneas. Glyndebourne, 1966. Conductor: Charles Mackerras.

Kaye Ballard - Mame Auditions - Very Rare Recording

I have goosebumps on my goosebumps. Listen through the first song, at least. You rarely hear singing like this these days. Note how seamless her registers are -- listen to how many different colors she uses on all of the high and middle stuff -- and listen to how it's not anything remotely resembling nasal. Ever.

Here is the amazingly talented American performer Kaye Ballard with Jerry Herman auditioning for Mame. I have always admired this lady and she is a marvel to...
