Teaching for me is much more than shape a voice: I loves to create the condition for people to sing together, beyond and taking inspiration from their cultural background and geographic origins. Singing is a way to bring to the surface people’s truth and inner needs for expression. When I lead a singing group, I am just a tool between the music and the people, I steps aside and observe the magic happens.
