"Thank you for your consideration"
The Zagaria Vocal Method (ZVM) draws from three primary subjects of study. The three pillars of the ZVM are "Science, Art, and Athletics". Therefore, ZVM focuses on a scientific, athletic, and artistic study of the human voice. ZVM draws from twenty first century science, athletic vocal training, along with an artistic approach for performance goals.
1. SCIENCE: "The Science Of Singing"
In developing the Zagaria Vocal Method (ZVM), Zagaria draws from his Bachelor's in Science in study of the voice. The understanding of the natural and scientific muscle movements of the singer allows for optimum vocal control. The ZVM is a newly developed system that has helped many singers reach new levels of expertise. Zagaria's scientific study of Human Anatomy, Physics, and Acoustics are all part of the scientific backdrop for the ZVM.
2. ART: "The Art Of Performance"
Performance is an art form. Study of many different styles are encouraged in the ZVM. Zagaria's method is designed to improve a person in whatever genre they sing. Other time tested vocal method's are studied in conjunction with the ZVM to create a well rounded vocalist.
Timing, meter, breathing, intake, and expiration, diaphragmatic control, attack, onset, volume, tone, dynamics, diction, expressiveness, articulation are some of the subjects studied in Singing as an original artist. Vocalists are encouraged and instructed how to find their own voice.
3. ATHLETICS: Athletic Vocal Training
"Singing is a sport" - Jeffrey Zagaria
Is your voice "tired" or "frog like" or "strained" after a little singing? Are you having difficulty finishing a performance strong or find your voice degrades after a half an hour studio recording session? ZVM address all and other related issues like these.
ZVM Incorporates new physical training models used to optimize flexibility, strength, coordination, dexterity, and endurance in the vocal related muscle groups.
"Most teachers approach music lessons rigidly and systematically. I believe that everyone is unique and must therefore be taught in a truly unique way. In this manner, lessons can become alive and stimulating to both student and mentor. I personally have taken many lessons over my lifespan. As a student, I observed that great teachers create an atmosphere that encompasses more than the written note. Music is an expression of life itself; a gift from God. I always hope to share the inspiration received from the many great artists that I have been blessed to work with. I am especially indebted to my father who has been teaching music students for over fifty years. It is always an honor to share the knowledge and love of music that has been passed along to me."
