METHODS For over 10 years Maria GoJa has been working with different methods, combining vocal pedagogy, functional voice training, bodywork, breathing techniques, regeneration of a voice over the entire frequency spectrum, artistic speech training and authentic presentation. She includes elementary aspects of vocal physiology and acoustics as well as the latest findings of vocal research. She is trained in the method Die Freie Stimme and has been active as a singer and performer for over 20 years. Inspired by her vocal studies, music, vocal education, singing and body work (Alexander Technique, African Dance, Tango, Yoga), acting (Stanislavski, Grotowski and Method Acting) and process oriented psychology, she developed her own teaching methods. She values a flexible, inclusive education system and process-oriented vocal training that addresses the needs of each student, adapts to the individual learning process, and takes into account specific vocal needs. "Balanced Control" is a system developed by Maria GoJa that meets this requirement. In the first lesson we analyse the vocal needs and develop short-term or long-term goals. Every lesson program is customized. Singing Lessons With Maria GoJa you will learn how to master your voice and the musical structure and how to gain freedom within the structure. Every lesson is customized for your individual goals, the ability to express yourself freely when you sing. As a music producer, Maria GoJa meets the special needs of Singer-Songwriters and artists that write their own music, that want to find their own, natural and individual singing style. Part of the singing education is Vocal Coaching Musical Structure (Rhythm, Melody, Vocal Harmony) Improvisation, various vocal styles (Pop, Indie Pop, Soul, Jazz, Chanson, Classical) Song Interpretation Performance Training Balance Your Control When we sing, we use a complex functional system involving the whole body and mind process. This system works highly intelligent and naturally perfectly balanced, as long as we do not control, interfere and manipulate its elements. Every physiological and intentional act in the process of singing has its specific task. When the system gets out of balance means simply, that some functions tend to take over the activity of others, that they are not meant to, while other highly demanded functions experience a lack of activity, development and training. Here we speak of unconscious compensation. Maria GoJa's method „Balance Your Control“ focusses on those elements in the individual system that need more activity and those that need a release. In order to find a balanced tonus state of tension and relaxation in the whole body while singing, it is important to answer the question why we compensate and how. This demands going beyond the physical function and understand the connection to the mental processes as well. Balanced tension is the full intentional willingness, an enthusiastic, positive excitement and awareness. Balanced relaxation is acceptance, the letting go of compensations, of fear and overall the full dedication to the artistic expression. Functional Voice Training Linked to the very beginnings of classical voice training, functional voice training underwent a long development throughout the history of vocal methods. Since modern technique allows a more differentiated access to all physiological aspects of our complex and fascinating vocal system, functional voice training builds the foundation for several well-known methods. It is popular for its clarity and flexibility. Without a comprehensive knowledge of the vocal mechanism, the tonal qualities it induces and the ability to truly listen and sense, many teachers rely on an one-concepts-fits-all-students approach only. Finding an individual access to the full vocal potential, in harmony with the natural, physiological requirements is very important. The ability of the teacher to catch up compensations that stand between the student and his free voice is as essential as the specific knowledge about basic principles of the vocal physiology and its interaction with mental and psychological processes while singing. This method absolutely favors the singers natural voice for an authentic vocal performance over an artificial vocal expression by imitation. Voice Recovery To overcome specific vocal problems like hoarseness, compensatory habits of over pressing, manipulative breathing techniques this recovery includes reflecting the circumstances that leaded to the specific problems. It includes bodywork, breathing and vocal chords recovery, gaining back lost vocal abilities, finding ways to overcome the problems for long term and learning new techniques to develop a sustainable, healthy vocal use withstanding the requirements of the artists professional life. The private Voice Recovery Coaching ranges between voice therapy, vocal wellness and methodic work on the voice technique. It is open to everyone who wants to find a way to enjoy singing, for actors and for speakers and for singers of all musical genres. Center Gravity / Fluid Power / Vocal Freedom This method is based on the insights of "body's center gravity shifting." It’s origins can be found in the old system of North Indian Dhrupad singers that integrated yoga practice (breathing techniques, using the shifting of the body’s center gravity, balancing tension and release) into their singing. Maria GoJa studied Indian singing techniques for many years and integrated this method into modern western styles in order to help singers to develop greater flexibility and freedom of their voices, and to enrich their unique sound spectrum through over- and undertones and experience sound as a powerful, fluid entity. The method works for singers of all popular genres that want to explore more and for beginners who want to unfold their vocal sound in a unique way. According to the students individual process and demands, specific exercises are integrated into general singing lessons, vocal coaching and vocal recovery.
