There’s no better proof than hearing it for yourself.  These recordings from a small sampling of my Level 3 clients audibly demonstrates the vocal freedom The Shetler Technique can produce.

Norbert had replaced Adam Pascal in Rent when Sherie Rene Scott stepped into the role of Maureen on Broadway. He came to work with me after watching Sherie grow stronger with each performance, despite the fact that the music was written in a way that put tremendous strain on the voice, creating vocal difficulties for many of the cast members.

The first of the songs I’ve included here demonstrates a fundamental of my teaching which is "talking on pitch"…and because this song makes me smile every time I hear it.

The second one is a duet with Sherie that demonstrates adding a "through line of sound" to the "talking on pitch". It also demonstrates how the release of air first let’s Sherie go from a light voicing to a full sound, thereby supporting the emotional content of those moments.

The final song is from Wicked where Norbert gives a healthy full on performance which also demonstrates his ROCK style which is what first got him hired in RENT.
