The Institute of Vocal Advancement (IVA) Vocal Technique


SDA Singing Studio is an International Certified Institute of Vocal Advancement (IVA) Vocal Studio with vocal philosophy that is "based on 17th and 18th Century principles of singing developed by the Old Italian School of Singing.  Our goal is to train voices to sing in a free and natural manner, smoothly, from the bottom of the range to the top with no breaks or sudden changes in quality. Training in this technique gives the singer access to all dynamics, with tonal clarity and flexibility.  Also, training in this technique helps improve a singer’s range, endurance, stamina, breath control, resonance, vocal strength and vocal quality across all styles of music without fatigue or damage to the voice. We accomplish these results by training the singer to find a balance between airflow and intrinsic muscular resistance, all within a resting laryngeal posture." - Institute of Vocal Advancement.
