Testimonials: on Breathing Coordination MDH & Voice

“I have had the honor of experiencing research with Lynn Martin and Robin de Haas on the work of breathing coordination, an approach that was initially developed by Carl Stough.
This work is directly related to many of the Old World concepts of the Italian School, yet it delves more into the pure function of breath management more deeply.
It is a wonderful work on helping singers to release the ‘push reflex’ and to find vocal freedom. This is especially helpful to those singers who over-compress and do not release enough breath in their singing.”
David L. Jones / International Vocal Pedagogue

“Today is a magical day. In one week I feel like I progressed like a whole year in singing. This is the best workshop to improve my singing that I have attended. Thank you for what you share.”
Michele Meylan, Singer

“The pedagogical quality is outstanding and so is the commitment of the two teachers. Iʼve discovered I can enjoy my voice and even sing, when I was merely cohabitating with it before. This work also offers me new approaches to the links between physiotherapy and breathing.” 
André Labhart, Physiotherapist

“I think everybody should visit this workshop at one moment or another in their lives, even if we are not all artists or public speakers.

“I would have never imagined that not only would my knowledge be enhanced, but also that my body could progress so rapidly. This feels like being born again. I leave with the conviction that my body is in good order and that I can work with my body in a trustful way, without trying to change or force it.
” Anne Ottiger, Singer

“This workshop brought me a lot. I have a better awareness of the integrity of my body and a more refined understanding of the role of each element of the body in the act of singing. The way we were accompanied is exemplary and precious. We were never left to our mere understandings, but led step by step in each practice and explanation.”  Eric Dahlen, Baritone

The material used is rich and the knowledge, care and respect of the two teachers are so reassuring. In one word: ‘Wow'”  Evelyn Sucher, Personal growth teacher

Francesca Giarini, Soprano and singing teacher

“This workshop is amazing. I have observed when a crisis situation came up in my personal life how through breathing coordination I have not only been able to inwardly protect myself from the aggression, but also I have been able to keep a clarity of mind because of the coordination I was in, and the decisions that followed were clear and efficient in spite of a huge stress.” Marie Laure Chabloz, Artistic Assistant, Lausanne City Opera

“I have loved this workshop. The content is very complete, and I have really met my body and my breathing. I am now able to easily and naturally project my voice. I canʼt imagine singing without that technique in the future.”

“I wish to underline that I have particularly appreciated the fact that the physiological approach that is offered is based on scientific knowledge, which is the opposite of other bodies of work on breathing that often rest on hazy, scabrous theories, notably in personal growth approaches.”
Laura Spanini, Translator and Singer

“This workshop has shown me once more that the human body is incredibly flexible and sensitive, but also that any modification or adaptation requires time to be integrated.”
