Sing from Your Core

SCHOTT MUSIC GmbH & Co. KG / Schott Campus

This book addresses singers of all kinds, from professionals to amateurs. It is about empowerment.

The voice is different from any other instrument because it is a part of your body – emanating from your core. You are the instrument.

The core principle of this book is that joyful and successful singing has a lot more to do with body coherence, vital energy connection and embodied communication than with viewing the voice mostly from a functional perspective. Your creativity and the desire to communicate deeply are grounded in your emotions, your joy, in stillness and in the truths of your vocal body. Attempting to manipulate or force your instrument into a preconceived interpretation or preconceived vocal format often fails to produce the desired results.

This book encourages you to experiment with surrender, involvement and body awareness. One of the many benefits of this approach is that it can help to reduce performance anxiety and stage fright.

If you want to express with your own unique vocal quality, then this book is for you. If you are curious about your expressive potential, if you are curious about what your next inspirational step might be, this book is for you.


Jole Berlage-Buccellati was born in Germany as the daughter of a German father and an Italian mother. Right after school she went to study Biology, Anthropology and Music (Piano) at Bates College, USA. (B.A.) She started training in karate while at Bates College and this has strongly shaped her approach to the body-mind system.

In 1985, she completed the 14-week course (National Theater Institute Semester) at the National Theatre Institute, New London, USA. The training blocks consisted of dance, acting, directing and playwriting. In 1986, she went to live in London and completed her Pilates training with Alan Herdman in 1988.

Upon returning to Germany she earned a Magister degree in Anthropology and Physical Anthropology from the Johann-Wolfgang Goethe University, Frankfurt. At that time, she started to take singing lessons. When she moved back to Lon-don in 1992 she began to study voice with Esther Salaman, Laura Sarti, David Harper and others.

In 1997 she moved to Hamburg, where she met Tom Krause in 2009.

In 2015 she began to work as a coach and in 2017 she completed a master’s degree in Music Therapy at the Hamburg Hochschule für Musik.

The fascination with the psyche, the body and mind-body systems has been a key theme of the author’s vita. The thousand voices of life and expressions of cultural preferences of emotional and physical expression have been central to her research.
