transform your voice

awakened ear workshop


Did you know your right ear processes higher frequencies faster than the left—and that singers with executive ability “lead” with the right?

In 1999, mid-career at New York City Opera, Daniel Shigo learned of the method of Alfred Tomatis—the Einstein of the Ear—and went to the Listening Centre in Toronto, Canada, where, in biblical fashion, his ears were opened.

The larynx only emits the harmonics that the ear can hear.
— Alfred Tomatis

His voice changed immediately as did his awareness of his body as an instrument.

His thought process changed too; dots were connected and everything he had been taught and learned about the teachings of Manuel García and Francesco Lamperti became clear, concise, and uncomplicated.

Encompassing nearly twenty years of research and study, Daniel’s application of the principles of the Classical Italian Song-Schools in the studio with Tomatis’ revolutionary perspective has resulted in practical and powerful tools that awaken the ear, fix vocal problems, enable true artistry, develop executive ability, and transform the voice.

The Awakened Ear Workshop is designed for actors, singers, voice teachers, vocal coaches, vocologists, audiologists, speech pathologists, and voice scientists.
