Miriam Jaskierowicz Arman brings back the greatness of Vocal Arts by teaching the necessary technical skills and knowledge to build and re-build voices.
Arman maintains that the Art of Bel Canto - literally meaning “beautiful singing” - is lost today, and that too many vocal coaches are harming their students’ voices by teaching what she believes are destructive techniques. What Ever Happened to Great Singing? (the 4th Edition of "The Voice") explains in great detail the Giro-Vocal-Motion-Technique taught and originated by Arman to maximize seamless, beautiful sound within the vocal line.
Citing vocal history greats as examples, Arman details her steps to technically achieve proficiency in every genre of vocal production. The book includes correspondence, previously unpublished, with international organizations and doctors who refuse and ignore, her findings as well as musical celebrities and voice teachers who support her teaching technique and life’s work in the field.
Her personal drawings are also used to visually outline the technical aspects of her methodology.
Arman offers more than 30+ years of experience as a vocal re-constructionist and innovator in vocal pedagogy. The Giro-Vocal-Motion Technique is the foundation of her methodology and she maintains that vocal technique and spirituality must combine to create a homogenized vocal instrument.
