Welcome to Voice Yourself! I am Valerie Bastien, Vocal Coach and Teacher. I am passionate about music and the voice, a wonderful and intricate instrument. I have been teaching singing in Toronto and on Skype for over 15 years and a musician for the last three decades! My client base goes from complete beginners to touring artists; kids and adults. They are mostly from Toronto but online teaching has also connected me to the rest of Canada, the United States, Europe and even Asia.
I specialize in removing tension from the vocal instrument in order develop a pure tone, increase range and improve projection. Learn simple yet effective breakthrough singing techniques with dramatic results. Align your instrument and create the most beautiful sound you have EVER heard! Did you know that once you find your pure tone it can be applied to any contemporary and traditional musical genres? Find your natural dynamic singing voice and maintain it. Then, add a combination of styles such as beathiness, falsetto, rasp and speech level singing to add character to your song interpretation. By understanding and using your voice correctly, you will maximize your skills and unleash your amazing gift. Creativity is infinite!
Your voice is at once unique and wonderful. It's a powerful tool for expression and the perfect instrument to channel and convey your emotions. As part of my teaching vision, creating a safe space where you are free to explore your talent and experiment with developing total vocal strength is of prime importance for me.
I am here to guide you toward fulfilling your deepest vocal wishes. Sing higher, louder and with confidence! Together we can achieve your full potential. Take your voice to the next level; set your goals and reach out for your dreams. All styles and ages welcome. Sing your heart out!
