I come from Nova Scotia, Canada and have lived and worked as a singing teacher and teacher of the Alexander Technique in The Netherlands since 1995 - first in Amsterdam and since 2010 in Nijmegen. From 1969 to 1976 I lived and worked in London, England.
As of January 1, 2018, I no longer teach privately but am available for consultation via email, Skype, FaceTime and telephone.
I taught from the basis that everyone is born with a singing voice. My job was to reveal this natural voice by means of helping singers to eliminate any interfering habits which might be preventing their voice from being heard. Regardless of the style of singing (jazz, musical, pop, opera) the basics of good vocal use are the same: drawing from within the singer–amateur or professional–the voice which is already there.
I chose the name “Cursa Ur” or, in Scottish Gaelic “New Direction” because during the last forty years I have seen how using the combination of Prof Frederick Husler’s vocal pedagogy and the Alexander Technique can give people a new direction in the use of themselves and their voice.
