“Yojiro is an expert in his field and his classes have a perfect balance of technique and exploration, thoroughness and fun. Regular classes with Yo have helped me grow my awareness of my singing voice which I will apply to future auditions and theatre work. I feel he tailors the class to my needs and I look forward to exploring further with him.”

-Susan Hingley, actress

“I came to my first session with Yojiro with bad singing habits, tensions while singing and unaware of how to build my singing voice consistently.
After a few sessions, I started to really see good progress in the areas we were working on.
Yojiro really knows what he’s talking about. He’s a really nice and supportive person which helps to build a good work relationship and grow my self-confidence.”

-Audrey L’Ebrellec, actress

‘Yojiro helps you find and maximize your real voice, with his profound understanding on singing mechanism and bodywork from his vast experience on stage work. His teaching is fun, creative, as well as precise. He won’t even miss the smallest tone that could improve, and with his advice, I could immediately notice the difference. Working with him gave me completely new perspectives on how to interact with my voice, and has been full of new discoveries!’

「市川さんに教わって…、先ず身体を空洞にして、背骨と骨盤の付け根を水の源泉とし、そこから足先から手先まで水が満たされるように、そして最後に口からわぁと水が溢れるように声が出て来る…という例えで始まった。

そして何の力も要らない、ただ呼吸だけで、いつも溜息を吐くつもりで声を出す…と。実際腹式呼吸から、体を使って力まずに本来持っている自分の声を探ることから始める。

そして徐々に音を加える。初めはファルセットどころかも長年の癖で地声すら、どこかに知らず知らず力が入り本来の声が出ていなかった(自分では出してたつもり)が、1時間、2時間と丁寧に(自分は既に諦め掛けていた…(^_^;))教えてくださっていくうち、遂に自分でも驚くほどのファルセットが出た❗️

その時、体のどこにも力は入っておらず、自分でも聴いたことのないような声だった‼️最初に言ってらした背骨(腰)を意識したとたんだった❗️

「僕は必ず出ると思ってましたよ」と言ってくださったが、本当に根気強く丁寧な教え方だった。感謝しています。」

-匿名希望さん(女優)

“歌詞が明瞭に聴こえ、6拍子における二連符を丁寧に歌うなど、歌唱が行き届いているのが優れた点の一つだ。:One of the prominent things about this production was the vocal supervision. I didn’t find any problem in understanding the Japanese lyrics which is quite rare in translated musicals and could see that the vocal of actors were well supervised very much in details.”
