The Mena Method

Updated: Feb 23, 2019

A couple of weeks ago a former student of mine, now in college, texted to ask me what method I taught when she studied voice with me. At first I chuckled, since in the twelve years that I've been a teaching artist, I'd never been asked that before. But then I had to stop and give this question serious thought. Through the years I had developed a set of vocalises and a definitive system, rooted in my classical training, to help singers of contemporary music. Yet, I'd never thought to name it. So, I lovingly dedicate this first post to my students Simi Kattaura and Anne Marie Salgado who officially labeled it, the Mena Method. Thank you, ladies! :) <3
