What is IVA?
IVA, the Institue for Vocal Advancement, is a voice teacher education and certification organization. In 2013, it was founded by a group of world-class voice teachers, who have over 125 years of combined experience training singers and teachers of singing.
Located in the United States, Canada, UK, Austria and Germany, the IVA Directors have dedicated themselves to learning the best method for training the voice, and passing this knowledge on to others. Over the years, a new and unique education programme has been developed for voice teachers living in different parts of the world.
The IVA Technique is based on the 17th and 18th Century principles of singing, developed by the Old Italian School of Singing. Combined with findings in current science, this technique aims to train voices to sing in a free and natural manner, smoothly, from the bottom of the range to the top, with no breaks or sudden changes in quality.
Training in this technique gives the singer access to all dynamics, with tonal clarity and flexibility. It also helps to improve a singer’s range, endurance, stamina, breath control, resonance, vocal strength and vocal quality across all styles of music without damaging the voice. These results were accomplished by training the singer to find a balance between airflow and intrinsic muscular resistance, all within a resting laryngeal posture.
In Singapore, we have many certified IVA instructors, teaching in different locations. We often gather and study together, teaching one another to brush up our teaching skills. All IVA teachers are educated and tested annually by the IVA Master Teachers, ensuring the highest teaching standard is being met.
