When I started having lessons with Leandro Lacava, I had no clue how to sing. I had never really sung before, my voice was pretty tense, and basically I just pushed a lot. My lessons with Leandro were almost like vocal therapy; there was a solid foundation in terms of the muscles involved in singing, and I felt like I was learning to use my voice in the best possible way. He made my voice do things I never thought it could do! He used very practical exercises and a clear method to give my voice more body, help me stop forcing, and more than that, he made me believe that I actually could sing! And you don't have to be born knowing how; you really can build your voice!
Today I divide my singing experience into Pre-Leandro Lacava and Post-Leandro Lacava; that's how big the change in my voice was! And not only that, he's just a great person!
