just needs that extra edge.

least a third and at least doubled the apparent voice in
their first lessons. I do it with everyone.
As a music therapist, I have fixed vocal problems through my
support and focus technique with Andy Williams, Pat Boone,
Renata Scotto, Georgio Tozzi, Ann Blyth, Howard Keel, Jerry
Vale, Constance Towers and a host of others who came to me
