who am i?
My name is Marcin Brzezinski, and in 2018 I am celebrating my 24th year as a voice teacher and vocal coach, including 14 years as a voice rehabilitation vocologist.
Born in Eastern Europe and living in Quebec for almost 30 years, I am passionate about the voice, the human body and learning. My clients, professionals and amateurs, come from various musical backgrounds and perform in many different styles: pop, jazz, musical comedy, rock, r’n’b, soul, gospel, hip-hop, blues, francophone, folk, impro and exploratory music, slam and world music.
My passion for the human voice prompted me from the very beginning, to study, compare, integrate, then teach various traditional and modern vocal training techniques as well as, incorporating global approaches such as yoga, the Alexander Technique, the Feldenkreis Method and other breathing, relaxation, and performance anxiety management techniques.
After ten years of vocal studies and research in vocology in Quebec, the United States and Europe, I’ve created the DVI method (Développement Vocal Intégral) which I use for private lessons, for professional coaching, vocal rehabilitation programs, “Your Voice: an Owner’s Guide” workshop series in Quebec and Europe and blog posts on this site.
In addition to helping many singers, comedians, presenters, journalists, speakers and business people to find their voice and reach their potential, I am pleased to see the DVI method being used successfully by professors at several universities and CEGEP’s throughout Quebec today.
As a coach, I have the deep conviction that a person of any age, any level and any physical condition can train vocally in order to find their voice, express themselves freely, improve their vocal health and as well, for the simple pleasure that comes with singing.
Looking forward to singing with you!
