Loic has been a Vocal coach for more than 20
years. He's taught to sing to hundred of people
and showed them how to unleash their voice and
themselves. "When I was 6, my parents put
me in a children choir where I first learned to
sing with the classical method; the one where
you have to repeat the same scales over and over
again. After that, as usual with me, I wanted to
know everything there was about the voice and
singing. For years, I learned on my own
until I went to Alice Dona's Performing Arts
School in Paris."
It's in that school
that Loic meets Master Anton ValÚry who will
teach him a new approach to singing. "His
methods were really unconventional. I used to
call him my Jedi Master because there was always
something deeper behind his teaching. With him,
you didn't only learn how to sing, but through
learning, practice and technique, you would
learn who you were meant to be."
After 2 years of training with Master Anton,
Loic asked him to teach him to teach. "Being
a good singer doesn't make you a good teacher.
Those are 2 completely different tasks. I wanted
to learn to teach. I wanted to be like my
master. And I got blessed because he accepted. I spent another year
with him learning just that; how to teach
time with Master Anton, Loic studied other
singing approaches and techniques from India,
Japan and China. He also studied the work of
Bobby McFerrin, Seth Riggs and
"I didn't want to be one
of those singers who
teach. I wanted to be a Vocal Coach.
I wanted to be the Real Deal. And to be a good
vocal coach, I had to know everything there was
about the voice and singing. I learned anatomy
and a lotf of different vocal techniques but
I've also researched approaches that are more
holistic such as how to mork with the body
energies and how the power of the mind can make
you surpass yourself physically."
"As I said, I'm not a
singer who teaches. I'm a vocal coach. My job is not to show you how a good singer I am
or what I can do. My job is to show you what
YOU can do. My goal is to make
you sing better than I do. That's the Graal. That's what motivates me."
Loic method is unique and is the direct
result of his 38 years as a singer and 20+ years
of experience as an Artistic director. His
technique is a mix of the classical method, the
best vocal techniqes from Briadway and some
"tricks" Loic discovered in his travels and
"The first thing to understand is that our voice
has never been designed to sing. Biologically,
physically, singing is completely unnatural for
the voice. If you try to force it, you start a
conflict within yourself. Everything you do will
be against your voice and your body in general.
That's not how one should sing. Instead, it must
be a team work between your voice and yourself.
One must first accept their voice as it is,
because it has never been designed to sing.
Then, we invite your voice to work with you and
learn and practice with you. That is how you
reach amaeing results."
Loic takes only 10 students every year.
"I've never considered teaching singing
as job. I don't do it for the money. It's more like
a calling, a vocation. Somehow, it gives me the
impression that I'm doing something good, that I
may be useful to
others. A famous quote says that the
purpose in Life is to find your gift but the
meaning of Life is to give it away. Well, that's what I
want to do.
But singing is a very personal
experience for every one. Each person who comes
to me comes with his/her own strengths and
weaknesses; courage and fears; doubts and
certitudes. To be a good singing coach, you have
to know the people you mentor, you have to care
for them. That's why I only take 10 students
every year. That way, I can really be close to them
and focus on who they are on a personal basis."
