Giuseppe Lopizzo recently had the pleasure of visiting with and working alongside his master mentor, Brett Manning, when Brett visited with him in Italy.
“Brett’s visit was awesome,” he said. “We did
three master classes. One was in a big theater in Ravenna, during the most important Italian convention about the singing voice; another one was held one in Padova, where I teach; and the third one took place in Modena, Pavarotti’s hometown.”
Giuseppe said that everywhere Brett went he was very well received.
“People loved him and his technique, everybody said that he knows how to communicate with people and that he’s a great soul,” he said.
Teaching Improves Reaching Others
Giuseppe also feels that by teaching and sharing Brett’s methodology and programs, he’s truly become a much better singer, performer, and teacher.
“Teaching has taught me a lot of things,” he said. “First of all, I think that you can say you really know something once you can explain it to another person, and teach it. While teaching, you learn to communicate first of all with your soul and with your heart. It’s first of all an exchange of emotions that sets the stage for a sharing of knowledge.”
So, having a passion for sharing your voice through singing, speaking, acting, or teaching is critical to laying the groundwork for further growth and development in others and in those you’re attempting to reach.
It also sends the message that you believe in your gifts and consider it an honor or blessing to share your gifts with others, so that they can proceed with sharper skills, a deeper passion, a better understanding, and a greater appreciation for their gifts.
But Guiseppe also noted another benefit that comes with sharing what he’s learned through working with Brett, his roster of certified master associates, and his many products such as Singing Success and Mastering Mix.
“While teaching you learn a lot about yourself and about your voice; and so, you become a much better singer if you’re a teacher,” he said. “You learn to deal with different kinds of people, because you can’t show the same concept to everyone in the same way.”
A Better Communicator
So, one of the many perks of taking Brett’s teaching to heart is that it makes you a better communicator.
You discover that each person that has a unique set of life experiences filtered by the drives and desires of a one-of-a-kind personality. Each person will respond to cues and clues for learning based on those filters and factors that make them a unique individual.
