These workshops have several individually tailored objectives designed exclusively. Our goal is to enable each participant to develop the personality of their voice, to gain confidence and create the tools to achieve their aspirations whether professionally or purely for pleasure. The key is you and your unique ability. Your body and breath is the motor, your brain and focus are the steering wheel, you are the driver. I will guide, enable you to focus and be the best you can, reaching from my heart to meet yours.
“The message behind the words is the voice of your heart” Rumi

Mauro will take time with you discussing your singing past as well as your dreams for the future. An honest assessment of your abilities is crucial should you wish to develop your musical career.
