      Martina Cori – Corista e Docente

      Sono nata a Viterbo il 24 giugno del 1992 e, a seguito di una prima fase amatoriale che ha caratterizzato l’infanzia e l’adolescenza, ho intrapreso la mia formazione professionale, entrando all’età di 19 anni al Saint Louis College of Music.
      Attualmente lavoro come Performer e Insegnante di Canto Moderno, Ear Training, Teoria e Armonia;
      secondariamente, svolgo anche le attività di: corista, autrice e compositrice, organizzatrice eventi, direttrice artistica, insegnante di Ear Training, di Teoria e Armonia. 

      CORSO DI CANTO
      Il mio corso di canto si focalizza soprattutto sulla conoscenza dei linguaggi (Pop&Jazz) e sull’analisi armonica e melodica dei brani, in modo tale da portare l’allievo alla totale padronanza musicale e, di conseguenza, ad un maggiore senso di sicurezza durante la performance. Per questo, sono presenti elementi di solfeggio ritmico, parlato e cantato, ear training e armonia. Di queste due ultime materie, terrò un corsi a parte.

      CORSO DI EAR TRAINING e ARMONIA APPLICATA

      L’Ear Training (Allenamento dell’orecchio) e semplicemente quella materia che permette a noi cantanti di non “perderci nella struttura” o nella tonalità. Attraverso il riconoscimento di note, accordi e successivamente intere progressioni armoniche, possiamo imparare a scrivere i nostri brani, improvvisare, comunicare meglio con i nostri colleghi musicisti e, soprattutto, divertirci molto di più durante la performance.

      “La mia avventura parte nel 2013 con il conseguimento della Laurea in Logopedia all’Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore di Roma, presentando una tesi sull’utilizzo del kinesiotape nel trattamento delle disfonie ipercinetiche.
      Inizio la mia carriera lavorativa collaborando con otorinolaringoiatri e foniatri nel trattamento dei disturbi della voce parlata e cantata e della deglutizione. 
      Dal 2014 al 2020 ho lavorato come libero professionista all’interno di centri di riabilitazione della provincia di Viterbo e di Roma, occupandomi principalmente delle problematiche del linguaggio, della voce e della deglutizione nell’età evolutiva e nell’adulto. In questi anni, ho anche approfondito i miei studi nel campo della voce, frequentando i corsi del Prof. Fussi, del Prof. Gucciardo e del Prof. Alfonso Borragan e nell’ambito del potenziamento cognitivo con il prof. Benso.
      Nel 2015 nasce la collaborazione con la scuola di musica “Backstage” di Viterbo, dove, attraverso dei campus estivi, ho offerto supporto ai cantanti, attraverso tecniche di impostazioni della voce e di igiene vocale. 
      Tra il 2019 e il 2020 intraprendo un nuovo percorso con l’iscrizione al Master in Riabilitazione Cognitiva dell’Università Lumsa di Roma. 
      Il 2021 inizia con tantissime novità: decido di dedicare tutto il mio tempo all’attività privata, aprendo il mio studio a Viterbo ed iniziando nuove collaborazioni. Oltre a Viterbo, infatti, lavoro all’interno dello studio “PsicologicaMente” di Civita Castellana.
      Se l’anno è iniziato con molte novità, finirà con tante altre, a partire dalla collaborazione con il Vocal Studio di Federica Sciamanna, dove sarò ben felice di dare supporto ai suoi allievi, qualora ci fosse la necessità di perfezionare o risolvere momentanee problematiche vocali.”

      Mario Infantes Ávalos – Extreme Singing Vocal Coach

      “I have devoted more than 15 years to vocal work, specialising in extreme vocal technique and modern singing. I have recorded plenty of albums and toured with several bands during my career. At the moment I front the technical death metal band Cult of Lilith, which signed last year with Metal Blade Records (Cannibal Corpse, Killswitch Engage, etc).

      I speak Spanish and English.

      You will learn mostly about extreme vocal technique and modern singing. Even though this is the focus of the course, I face my vocal work with an open-minded approach, so influences may come from all directions.”
