Check link to Aimee Nolte’s video on Point And Sing GREAT INFORMATION!
As a teacher of jazz vocal technique, I’m always in the mode of research and learning. My pedagogy comes from my experience. Music in general, but jazz in particular, is a “forever endeavor”.
As a teacher, what I bring to my students are the tools that I’ve gathered in my personal journey. Not being schooled in the traditional way, my passion for singing had to happen on my own. I threw my shy self into all of the musical situations I could find. Starting with a high school talent show, getting a job singing telegrams, working as a jingle singer and voice over talent and ultimately becoming a recording artist and performer.
That’s what I bring to my teaching. My experience. Every lesson I teach is a joyful learning experience for me and my students as we dance the dance of the never-ending discovery of rhythm, intonation, tone and the ultimate goal of expression.
I had a teacher who once said “no one owns the music”. I concur.
The teacher in the linked video (above) is a great source of the continuation of the “dance” of learning. Step up and express yourself, share, continue and choose joy.
