"MJ has a fantastic voice of her own and she is doing marvels with mine..."
Dexy's Midnight Runners
"My voice has got a lot better... I’m loosening up, starting to let go... MJ’s lessons are starting to work and are very important to me..."
MJ Paranzino's one-to-one vocal coaching is an opportunity for singers of all levels to learn professional vocal technique, and explore the power and range of their own voices.
As a singer herself for many years – performing classically as well as, pop and R&B (listen to the mp3 player) – MJ can teach all professional vocalists and actors, and members of the general public too.
MJ understands the power and beauty of the human voice and how to bring out the very best in her singers. MJ will help you explore your voice through professional vocal techniques including: breathing, posture, diction, rhythm, phrasing, projection, body language and performance. Music sight-reading is not essential.
She taught Kevin Rowland, the lead singer of Dexys Midnight Runners, for two years, to prepare him for his comeback tour in February 2007. India Knight, the popular author and columnist, was also a pupil for over a year and described it as the best therapy ever.
The writer, Robert Crampton took a number of lessons and wrote about them in his column in the Times magazine.
She also worked with the actor Robert Bathhurst for his role as Boris Johnson in ' David Blunkett the Musical ', (his first singing part), as well as Mark Perry, from ‘Dead Ringers’, who played the title role.
She has worked with boy bands, indie groups, opera and theatrical artists, and is able to help with all aspects of performance and voice projection.
