voice lesson with Akiko
Welcome to Akiko Aoki Voice Studio
What are your top musical goals?
Perhaps it is to sing as boldly as Adele or riff your way to LA like Ariana Grande.
Even if you achieve those goals, if the voice is left weak and damaged, the amount of time that the voice can be enjoyed will be cut short.
I, after experiencing voice damage, would conclude that my artistry can not live on without the care that must support it. Alongside that comes the vocal technique which leads to artistic freedom. So, I aim to share methods which foster better physical and more artistically flexible singing. I have studied at Berklee College of Music majoring in Performance, studied Somatic Voice Work, and done much of my own research. From all of the knowledge and experience I have experienced both on the inner workings of the voice and in working professionally as a musician, I simply want to pass what I know down to who needs it.
Lastly, it is imperative to understand that technique and ability is only 50% of what makes a singer a good one. It is the story telling and passion the singer brings to the stage that makes it impactful. So, ultimately, the health and technique is all a framework for artistry.
I look forward to exploring what you have to share with the world!
Lastly I would like to put my reference with the full application..
