Cecile's story:  

I was born with a growth on my vocal cords and a compulsion to sing.  As a child, singing was my primary means of communication and actually defined me as an individual.

I started singing professionally when I was 14 years old and by the time I was 20 years old, the growth had become a nodule .  By then I was singing 6 nights a week in local bars.  

At 22 years old I underwent vocal surgery.  Singing was my life and yet my instrument was damaged and I had developed some intensely negative vocal habits to compensate for my limited access to my head voice. I could not find anyone to teach me what I needed to know.

I studied at universities in Vancouver, Texas and finally Florida.  By the time I earned my BA in voice , I still had not found my way into the 'Mix', mostly because I didn’t know it existed.

When I discovered "The Mix" through Seth Riggs and his Speech Level Singing organization in Los Angeles, I literally fell to my knees with relief, knowing my life as a singer would go on and even get better.  I have been studying and practicing The Mix for over 15 years now and my range has increased by two octaves.   I am happy when I sing.  It feels like flying sometimes.  

 

My favorite saying:  'if you can talk, you can sing.'..

 

My definition of singing: 'sustained laughter'.

 

I thank you for joining me here on my website and encourage you to use due diligence when choosing your voice teacher.

 

Happy Singing,

Cecile Larochelle
