Vocal Coach / Songwriter / Performer

Iari - Vocal Coach / Songwriter / Performer



Iari teaches Practically Singing - a method of singing that is simple to understand, and easy to use. Practically Singing is based on the same techniques used by over 100 Grammy Award Winning Artists, and is streamlined to focus on 3 basic concepts (called the ABCs of singing) that are essential for a singer to find true freedom with their voice. Singers who utilize this method will quickly experience the following:

  • Improved vocal range, both high and low

  • Seamless transition between vocal registers (chest - mix/middle - head/falsetto)

  • Improved resonant sound quality

  • Improved breath management (diaphragmic breathing and breath support)

  • Greater pitch accuracy and intonation

  • Higher emotional content in their vocal performances

As a vocal instructor, Iari has taught workshops internationally, including at the Green Voices Institute in Munich, Germany; Iari is an associate of the International Voice Teachers of Mix (IVTOM), and is a former affiliate of Vocology in Practice (VIP) and Speech Level Singing (SLS). Some of Iari's past clients include Anthony Arya (Season 15 contestant on The Voice, Team Adam Levine and Team Jennifer Hudson, www.anthonyarya.com); Tiffany Joy and Maqui Reyes of the hit Latin Pop duo from Colombia, Individúo (www.individuomusic.com) ; Patrick McCloskey, lead singer of the band, First In Flight (Alt 105.3 FM sponsored band, www.firstinflightband.com), and Kristen Faith Oei (NY Broadway Productions of The King and I, M.

Iari’s passion for guiding and developing voices has also turned into his speciality as a coach, and he frequently is hired to also help develop and game-plan younger artists’ first-steps in cultivating a career in the Music Business. His experience and skill-set as a performing singer-songwriter, and the connections he’s made in the SF Bay Area have proven to be invaluable to those wishing to take their talent and creativity to a larger stage.
