In his teaching, Alex recognizes human voice as a musical instrument, we have to"build" our instrument by building up muscle memory through practicing vocalise exercises, and to strengthen the sensation of our brain towards the muscles and spaces needed for singing. After the instrument is "built" then we can learn how to control our voice and sing freely.
