Tyler Cesario


Teaching Philosophy

Singing is powerful. This is the statement that I base my teaching on; it is my goal as a voice teacher to give my students the resources and skills that are necessary for them to be empowered as a singer. While singing is powerful, singing can also be hard for a variety of reasons. Perceived notions of what sounds are correct, societal pressures to sound like everyone else, or even the notion that one way of singing is inherently more healthy than others because of its proximity to whiteness are just a couple of reasons why singing can be hard. But singing doesn’t need to be hard – singing can and should be related to the human sounds that we are all making on a daily basis. It is also important that I can assign diverse and inclusive repertoire from a variety of different types of composers that helps students to reach these goals rather than impede them. Carefully chosen repertoire can be used as a stepping stone to achieve the student’s and the teacher’s goals – it can be used to empower.
