You have probably already had the opportunity to read in the newspapers or listen to the TV news of my last event in New York to present my work and my book to the entire city.

I was chosen by Learn Italy Communication USA, a leading cultural agency in the United States, as the first testimonial of the Italian Excellence in the World during an event organized at Urbani Truffle, the undisputed leader in the Italian truffle industry.

The event should have been presented by Francesco Semprini, La Stampa reporter in New York, but since he and his photographer were the victims of an unfortunate episode in Syria, where they were on a reportage mission (the photographer was injured in one eye, he was unharmed), his place was quickly taken by Valeria Robecco, journalist of Il Giornale and ANSA, as well as the newly appointed president of the UN reporters’ association.

During the event Valeria has asked me very interesting questions that have taken me to talk about my story, explain my method and tell more about my book. I also had the honor of receiving two questions from Maria Luisa Rossi Hawkins, the renowned Mediaset correspondent in New York.

Also present at the event was the deputy secretary of the General Committee of Italians Abroad, Dr. Silvana Mangione, who also gave a small speech to congratulate with me.

The entire event was broadcasted for Italian Television by RAI Italia, here is the link to Mylena Vocal Coach interview by RAI.

Here is the full footage of the Mylena Vocal Coach Interview in New York City by U.N. reporter Valeria Robecco, with Captions.

Here is the transcript of the Interview:

Massimo Veccia:
Buonasera a tutti!
Can you hear me?
Well, good.
So Good Evening everyone.
I’m sorry I’m gonna speak more Italian than English
Bonne soirée a toutes les personnes Francophones, c’est juste une!
I welcome all of you, our students, our teachers, some of whom are already here, we are still waiting for a couple of others: they are a little late because of the weather.
I am very happy to be here and I greet Valeria Robecco, I greet Milena Origgi, our guest today.
I greet Maria Luisa Rossi Hawkins, I greet Dr. Silvana Mangione and I greet all our collaborators in their various roles, including of course our GianMarco Capogna.
I would like to say my GianMarco because by now we have become almost one thing!
So thank you for being here!
Today we are launching a new path on which Learn Italy has been working for some tim, which is called “Talent’s Network”.
Talent’s Network is inaugurated with Milena Origgi, whom I have known for five six years, we met in Milan a few years ago.
Milena does a particular job, she’s a Vocal Coach.
She will explain to you herself, together with Valeria, how she does it, what she does, what she wants to convey, how she can also be of help to a great number of people. 
Last night we had a great chat together, very interesting!
I want to thank Sabrina Notarnicola, a friend of mine from childhood, and Urbani Truffles who is hosting us today.
I want to thank RAI international, or RAI Italia as they call it today, for the TV coverage.
I would like to introduce you to Valeria Robecco, a journalist from Il Giornale of Milan and ANSA agency
She was recently elected as President of the correspondents of the United Nations, so congratulations!
Maria Luisa Rossi Hawkins is a very famous face of Mediaset, many of you already know her for her “Stars in Stripes” show that I follow a lot when I’m in Italy.
Whenever I can, I tune the TV to Mediaset and look at Maria Luisa with her raids on Italian-American politics.
I would leave the floor directly to you after having once again thanked you for being here!
Today begins a path, another path of Learn Italy, which will lead us to have new meetings in the near future. Of course you will be updated on all our activities on our next projects.
I hope that at the end of the meeting Dr. Mangione will say a few words.
We will see later, based on how the cards will be on the table.
To you Valeria and Milena!

Valera Robecco:
Welcome and thank you!

Mylena Vocal Coach:
Good evening, everyone.

Valera Robecco:
It’s a pleasure for me being here for this interview with Milena Origgi.Milena is one of the greatest international experts in the field of Vocal Coaching and is the founder of the Inborn Voice method, which she will then explain to us.
She has over twenty years of experience in lessons, workshops, retreats around the world and is also dedicated to online training, in fact, to date boasts over seventeen thousand sessions of vocal coaching via Skype.
Today is also the opportunity, you see it here near me, to present his new book “The Way of the Voice“, which was released in Italy in the two thousand and eighth after the great success of her first book that sold over ten thousand copies.
In “The Way of the Voice“, Milena tries to explain how the interaction between the vibrations of the voice and everyday life is the only secret necessary to achieve personal realization.
The book was also translated into English and was published last September  globally.

So Milena, first of all tell us a little about your story.
How did you get to where you are today?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
So my story started not so long ago. It starts some time ago.
I was born in Busto Arsizio. It’s a city that I carry with pride even though I say that I’m from Milan, otherwise here in the United States it’s not easy to
understand where it is located in Italy.
Busto Arsizio is a city that has given birth to famous people like Mina and many other important figures.  It is the city famous for being reborn from its ashes, like the phoenix, and this fact fully represents me!
In Busto Arsizio I was already a prodigy child, at least that’s what the people around me were saying and by the age of six I was already taking care of the church choir, I was the soloist and a few years later, around the age of eightI was already advising adults on what they should do to sing better within the church choir
This then led me to continue to love my voice deeply, not only when singing, but much more.
From Busto Arsizio then I decided to move progressively to study my passion for the voice, so important for me. so I traveled around the world, I studied many different disciplines.
From oriental disciplines to more “technical” disciplines, if you like.
From Busto Arsizio I then moved to London. I opened Inborn Voice in London and then arrived in Boston, about three years ago. And today we’re in New York.

Valera Robecco:
What is your Inborn Voice method? 
Is it a path that only concerns professionals in the industry, therefore actors, singers, voice actors and politicians, or is it a path that anyone can undertake?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
It is a beautiful path because it can be undertaken by anyone.
Because we all speak and communicate, not only with our voices!
It’s a path that works for everyone, and it’s very important to say: it’s not only for those who specialize in the voice industry!

Valera Robecco:
What does it is about?
Explain us a little better.

Mylena Vocal Coach:

It’s a lot complicated to explain the method, but I’m trying to simplify it.
It is a method that as the most important imprinting has to remove everything that is wrong with our voice, in our way of using it.
Ever since we learned to speak as children, not only if we took a few classes to learn how to speak, but from an early age.
Everyone else wants to introduce new notions, teach new things, new theories, new techniques, new exercises.
Inborn Voice, no! 
With Inborn Voice you are the protagonist, it’ s never me.
My method aims to remove, eliminate, and free everything that is inside. 
Errors are removed and this “Inborn Voice”, which is actually our primary essence, is released.

Valera Robecco:

You teach private lessons, workshops and retreats all over the world. 
What is the difference between them for a person who wants to approach your path?
How can they choose one way over another?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
I must say that my websites ( and already present the different options very clearly. 
Usually people already choose from there.
Every path, be it a retreat, a workshop, a private lesson, a group lesson, an online lesson, a vis à vis lesson, is already recognizable at first glance.
I always respect my client’s request. 
For those who don’t like working online, I won’t teach online.Those who just want a quick taste about the Inborn Voice method, will sign up for the workshops, and eventually they’ll continue with online sessions.
Those who want to fully immerse themselves in the Inborn Voice method, sign up for a retreat. However, those who prefer a more serious, more challenging training, because they are also more determined, take lessons regularly.

Valera Robecco:
Let’s talk about online. You’ve had so many online lessons!
How do your clients approach online lessons and how do you approach them?
Not having a visual relationship with the person who is taking the lesson, do you still manage to convey what you want, and they can convey theirs to you?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
When I started the online path it was definitely something challenging, especially since it started in Italy. Even though I was in Milan, a cutting-edge city.
One, for the Internet connection, which was obviously not very fast.
Two because my customers told me “where does this Vocal Coach go? She goes abroad! And I have to follow up online? I can’t believe it’s the same thing!”
At first there was someone who chose not to continue with the lessons because the idea of being online was really remote.
Today I work almost twelve hours a day and online gives me the same satisfaction of vis à vis, in person, because it is an art that I have refined over time.
When I return to one of my studios, for example in Milan, the students who have followed me online and are in front of me in person, make this beautiful move (They’re watching if there’s a screen).
That tells me everything!

Valera Robecco:
Your customers come from different professional backgrounds, as well as from all over the world.
What do they ask you most often?
What is the goal they hope to achieve by training with you?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
Also in this case I separate the types of customers-
There are “dreamy” customers, the ones who want everything.
They want a beautiful voice, warm, strong, with the right pauses. 
They want to never suffer anxiety, to be one of the best speakers in the world! 
I stop them for a moment and tell them “it’s possible, but it takes time, the most complex exchange currency”.
Then they stop, understand, and say, “All right, I want to focus on that.”
The requests range from execution, whether it’s the singer, the actor, the dubber, to the businessman, who has to prepare speeches or present his work to shareholders or an audience. There are even people who deal with politics, but for me the most interesting people are those who say to me: “I got lost and I know that something inside me keeps talking to me. It’s not my head!”
There’s something deeper: it’s their Inborn Voice!
This is my favorite customer!

Valera Robecco:
Do they therefore have the patience to take a path, which may be more or less long, to achieve the goal they have set?
Or do you find someone who would like to do it all, right away?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
Yeah, when I got here, the All and at Once was kind of a brand thing. Everything and right away! How long? In ten lessons, five lessons?
I always answer in five lessons you will get this, in ten lessons you will get that, in thirty lessons you will get that too.
The most interesting thing is that some people only take one lesson and that’s enough for them!

Valera Robecco:
Do they accept this here in America, too?
I mean if it is more frequent that here in the United States to find someone who wants to reach results as quickly as possible?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
Yes, I help them to clearly identify what they really want, but often I need only a little time, one lesson, five lessons, ten lessons and they understand on their own where they have to go and what they have to do in order to reach that goal.
Some people can also be discouraged at some point, because they need to be very determined to progress. And some even stop the training.
Then, with time, they all return. 
I am of the sign of the Scorpio, everything returns. 
After an average of two years, those who have stopped the training call me and say: “Hey listen, it’s possible for me to start again?”.
Because they believe that I may have a grudge against them. 
Absolutely not! 
And I continue their training. The Inborn Voice method, if it is temporarily suspended, because someone need, I do not like to say “digest” because it is not nice, but “internalize” the training, may very well require a moment of stasis, to settle the crisis.
I love philosophy. There always comes that moment in your life when you have to overcome the crisis, with a little effort, but when they come back we start again together. We don’t start from scratch, but exactly from where they have left, to continue building their expressiveness.
This is a characteristic of mine that I value very much. In fact, I asked Massimo Veccia to highlight in the billboard of this event, forgive me if I interrupted you while breathing, the fact that I consider myself a craftsman. I carry the flag of Italy high for its tradition of craftsmanship, even though my method is expanding all over the world! Maybe the word “craftsman” is starting to get a little tighter. In reality for me to be meticulous, the attention to detail, is like drinking a glass of water. I’m not proud of it, but I’m deeply happy about it because it’s the detail that makes the difference!

Valera Robecco:
Why is voice so important to personal fulfillment?
For your personal affirmation, not only at work, but precisely for a private matter, to feel good about yourself?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
Our voice, although some people think that our body is the first means of communication, and in part it is, manages to do magic: it reaches directly into the unconscious.
Not to an unconscious that can be managed, rationalized.
No. Like music, it reaches such a deep, intimate point that when it does it manages to make all our colors explode. 
If a person has any social issue, communicative problems for example, I also work with couples, with parents, with children, with young people, when they manage to communicate that wonderful music they have inside, it’s something amazing!
That’s why our voice is so important!
This happens only through the voice, the body can’ t!
The body is, like a violin, the structure. The voice is like when the strings start to vibrate, and touch really important keys. This leads us to be able to relate to others more easily, but above all to relate to people who play the same music! 
The rest is wasted time!

Valera Robecco:
Since you mentioned parents, kids, children, how important is the voice of a father or a mother for a child?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
My eyes make a small circle.
A lot, a lot!
Let me give you an example, not a private one, because I will not mention anybody.
I found myself in front of a sixty year old man, who had been told when he was a child to “shut up”. This person spent many years in psychoanalysis and never managed to exteriorize his feelings.
Today, clearly he’s a student of mine, he says, “They told me to shut up, but thanks to my Inborn Voice, I decided to scream too!”
It was a cathartic lesson if you will.
Now all that inner torture of being silenced by someone in their own personal expression has vanished. 
I won’t go any further, but I’ll leave a little tip.
I’m someone who follows very much alternative medicine, linked to quantum, vibration: a broken voice, one day they will be able to measure it, creates incredible damage right at the cellular level. Sooner or later they’ll be able to prove it.
I see it every day!

Valera Robecco:
Let’s talk about your book for a minute.
Your second book which is here: “The Way of the Voice”
What’s this about?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
This is a book that not only in Italy, but especially in America have defined as “unexpected”.
What is it? They expect exercises, they expect the usual “la la la la” stuff, they expect breathing, they expect pauses tips.
“The Way of the Voice” is a book that deals with the world of the voice on a quantum, physical, mathematical and vibrational level. Because everything is vibration!
It raises the voice to this level and moreover it deals with philosophical situations, religious situations and shows, as there is then in the small subtitle, how much our voice, the sound of our voice, hides a secret.
So it is very original, as is my last name.
I believe in resonances, the book speaks of resonances: my family name is Origgi: “original”.

Valera Robecco:
Someone who reads your book, how does feel enriched?
What can he find in your book?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
Then I’ll give you two feedbacks that I’ve received several times.
The first is “I read the first chapter, wonderful!, but the second chapter I did not understand a thing!”
Great! I always answer that the moment will come when, reading the second chapter, they will understand.
Someone else, however, after reading the book, not only improved his/her voice already, began to take care of it with a different attention, but understood that perhaps the road he/she had taken was not the “resonant” one. Many then contacted me for help for finding their voice.

Valeria Robecco:
During your more than twenty years of Vocal Coaching, in your career, what were the challenges, perhaps the difficult moments?
Were there any moments when you thought “maybe if I turned back time I would do it differently”?
If there have been, of course

Mylena Vocal Coach:
I have been thinking and I still think about this question right now.
Difficulty: a lot!
I was the first Italian Vocal Coach to bring a method of vocal training abroad, especially in the United States.
I repeat: very complex!
This was one of the biggest difficulties, but as I write in my book: it was my destiny!
So every time they ask me:
Was it difficult?
Was it tiring?
Did it take determination? 
Yes, and above all courage!
Perhaps the only thing  that was difficult, and still is, is to stay away from home!
Because I deeply love my family and this is the thing I miss the most, but for the other things all is possible and everything is inside me, it flows like a river in flood!
It flows with this ease!

Valera Robecco:
What was the best moment ever?
The one when you said “I really found my voice and everything I did was worth it, because right now I feel like everything’s perfect”?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
This is one of those moments!
Right now!
When I was told “Yes, you can work into the United States”, it was another important moment.
When I look at my customers smiling, their rebirth, reliving, those are the most important moments!
I’m not the protagonist, but my clients, my students, my followers, the people who listen to and follow their Inborn Voice. 
It’s constantly expanding!

Valera Robecco:
What has changed, if anything has changed in you, since you arrived in the United States?
Since when did you start to live in this country, which certainly has many positive aspects but also presents many challenges? A country different from Italy for many things, but I think it can also enrich a person. Has something changed in you? 
Has it enriched you both professionally and personally?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
Getting here for me was like coming home.
The first time in the United States, in New York, was when I was sixteen.
So I was a minor. My parents weren’t so happy, but I wanted to visit anyway and it was like coming home for me!
Different mindsets? Yes
Different ways of acting? Yes
Hard work? Yes
But it was exactly what I was already in Milan, nothing different.
As if I had reunited with who I was.
So certainly enriched, certainly satisfied, but even more, merged, completely, with my true identity.

Valera Robecco:
You left Italy, went to London and came to the United States.
What are the next projects or goals you have in mind or would like to achieve?

Mylena Vocal Coach: 
The United States have always been my country par excellence, the one that represents me, so I will probably not stop here in New York, but this will be my most important center.
Instead with my Retreats, my workshops and everything else, I will continue to move around the world. From New Zealand to Fiji, I already have everything on my website with my retreats. For example in Hawaii, all places I have already visited, but I want to feature them again, because I have not mentioned it before, but it is written in my book, everything I bring here today, in this interview and to you, is a person who has travelled to many places in the world, not as a tourist, but as a child curious about the sounds of the natives.
From freezing with the Inuits in Alaska, to ” becoming ” a Maori, with tattoos! So New York is not a point of arrival for me, but a Hub, because the United States reflects very well the concept of expansion that I have.
Inborn Voice won’t stop there. It will continue to be present, I hope, in the most important places in the world because there is a message I want to give today and it is a message that really makes people feel good about this work, not only those who learn to use their voice, but also those who listen to those who use it to speak and express themselves. Today, as never before, we need not only to communicate with words but also with facts. Especially in this vibrational world! It’s enough that we look at each other, it’s enough that you talk, that I talk and something is already happening on a vibrational level: it’s a real music!

Valera Robecco:
Of all these places you’ve had the chance to go to for your workshops, for yours retreats, is there one in particular one that you particularly remember, for a reason or because it left you something that you’ll carry with you forever?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
There are many, not all, because they are not them all. 
Perhaps one of the most important places was New Zealand with the Maori concert, because they still sing legends and stories in a wonderful way.
They chase away demons with their own eyes and voices!
So I really like that country!
And then I can add Japan, because it represents me as a concept of “politeness “.
I could spend hours talking about this, but if you ask me right now where I feel most connected: New Zealand, absolutely!

Valera Robecco:
Let’s get back to voice, which is why we’re here talking to you.
How important is the voice to become a leader?
Not only for your own personal affirmation, but also for the affirmation in the profession that someone chooses. 
I’m referring to a leader not only in the field of politics, but also in the field of business, in the field of acting: in general.

Mylena Vocal Coach:
For a leader, voice is essential. When you asked me about my customers, I did not mention the “leaders”, but many of them are leaders! They are businessmen, leaders in their area.
It’s very important and fundamental because it makes everyone understand who they are and what they’re saying, in the moment they speak.
There is one more element that a leader needs. My Must is: never copy. Never!
Imitating the voice of another, the pauses of another, makes “fake”, does not work.
Originality is what matters, what reaches us.
Another thing that is always important as far as leaders are concerned, is that they must always be considered as the conductor of an orchestra.
Among my clients I had a fashion stylist, who works with an important brand, obviously in Milan. She said “I’m here because what I say to my staff doesn’t happen”.
I made her understand that she is the conductor and only by using her voice can she succeed. Only with your voice!

Valera Robecco:
You mentioned a stylist, then a woman.
For women, having a powerful voice, an important voice, how much does it matter in their career? In establishing themselves professionally and also personally?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
Women, on average, those I meet, make the biggest mistake of setting their vocality on a tone similar to that of males.
They think, generally all women, that only a male voice is suitable for leadership.
I say to these women: “You are a woman and you must also be a leader, let’s try to fuse these two elements”. 
Thanks to my help they find the sensuality of a woman, the attention of a woman.
The emotiveness of a woman can not be missing otherwise it is fake!
A woman does not impose herself!
There’s a beautiful film, I don’t know if I can mention it, but it’s “my big, fat, Greek wedding”. I don’t know if you remember the scene. Here they say yes!
I love it, I don’t know how many times I’ve seen it. The wife of the protagonist’s father, Gus, says: “The man is the head, but the woman is the neck!” and she turns the head wherever she wants!
We women have one additional art and we have to use it through our voice.
And here we have a confirmation!
We have to use it, we can’t replace it because we’re not men.
We are women!
But, we are not the weaker sex. We have much more powerful weapons in some circumstances.

Valera Robecco:
And how important is presence, not only in the sense of moving while speaking, but also in the sense of physical presence?

Mylena Vocal Coach: 
Here, too, I say that the physical presence must never be copied by someone else.
It must be very personal and, especially in my method, the physical presence is fused in a perfectly tuned way, with the body. So a person who takes certain pauses will have certain movements in those pauses. We cannot disassociate the body and the voice. For me they are united. As voice is united with emotion.
Those who say that the voice can become without emotions, not to make them shine through, have already lost from the start!

Valera Robecco:
Did you happen to meet people who might have an important voice, a relevant voice and maybe who were also good speakers, but who were missing something?
Maybe they weren’t able to convey emotions, at the level of empathy, what they had to communicate to their audience?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
So, Valeria, this is a complex matter.
Yeah, but I’m gonna make a point.
As I explained before there are several levels, so if someone has a nice voice for me, for most people it’s beautiful or interesting.
Some of my students say “that person has a beautiful voice, go and hear it”.
No. I realize that it is not so beautiful, Here I carry Inborn Voice in favor of a necessity to acculturate on how to define a voice. It’s not just an age-old concept linked to the sound and musicality of the voice, there’s much more to it than that.
So there can be someone who until that point is able to communicate, but lacks more empathy: He/she must work on it!
But empathy, passion, other nuances, are much more complex!
It does not mean that he/she is not a good speaker: according to me he/she is a speaker at fifty percent!
He misses the other fifty percent!
Of course, for a person who is not a speaker even at fifty percent, that person is like a divinity!
Is that clear? I can make you understand that there is no single answer: there is a split answer.
I work with a someone who is presenting at Cupertino, so I do not make other names, this person asked me exactly that. 
“I have no problem to talk, to present, to be a speaker.  But I realized that emotions are missing. I want to be more even if they say I’m good”.
I said, “All right! You’ve chosen the right person!”
Of course, I’m just a little bit tight with him because I enjoy the challenge.

Valeria Robecco:
Listen, since I’m sure there’ll be plenty of questions from the audience, and plenty of curiosity to ask you,I’d like to ask you one last thing, actually two.
What do you think about the voice of American President Donald Trump?
Or maybe not only the voice, but also the way of presenting himself.

Mylena Vocal Coach:
I’ll stop evaluating his voice!
I got to know him, obviously I haven’t met him yet in person, but I got to dwell on the video of the debate he had with Hillary Clinton.
Trump’s voice communicates a lot
We must bear in mind that in that debate, from my point of view, he was contained. So there wasn’t completely himself.
Content for obvious socio-political reasons: That’s television, and it is always not reality
The first moment, you see it immediately, as Trump is slightly embarrassed, and that means that he was moved
He was experiencing an emotion
Then the voice, I repeat, he tries to be a bit restrained, as far as you can see from the breathing he would like to add more elements and in this debate he says two words that have impressed me a lot, and he was able to give them a precise impetus and therefore believes it.
We start from the assumption that for me, if you know how to give the right impetus, according to my method, it is guaranteed that you will live those words.
One word was “Potential” and I am sure that he believes it.
The other word was “We.” He didn’t say “I”, he said “we”.
I liked that very much!

Valera Robecco:
Since we have mentioned the debate with Hillary Clinton and also for a matter of par condicio, let’s talk about Hillary, so what do you think of Hillary’s voice?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
Hillary’s voice is a completely different one.
I had the immediate feeling of a someone who was repeating her homework in front of a mirror, so in a self related world.
At some point during the debate, you’ll all have noticed that there’s someone from the public asking her a question.
There was no sound/vibrational tuning of Hillary’s voice to the person’s question from the audience.
That means she didn’t even consider him. 
I haven’t heard any “we” and her voice tends to be monotonous.
I go a little further
I’m allowed to say this because I have a lot of clients from that profession, a bit of a psychoanalyst. the one who by trade must contain the emotions

Valera Robecco:
Do you think that a job like the one you do with your customers, could help her maybe create a little more empathy? Because I say this is a personal opinion of mine but in short having had the opportunity, and Maria Luisa more than me, of having a chance of seeing her from close distance during the electoral campaign , she is definitely not a person able to create a relationship with her audience. When she speaks always seems very detached.
Do you think that she need a training path of your kind to try to bring her a little closer to her audience? Or when the character is in a certain way becomes difficult to change it?
To change the approach, the attitude?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
I rarely speak about the character, it’s one of our excuses: “This is my character”.
I say that there is a beautiful word that divides the word “character” in two and is ” intention”.
If a person wants to reach his/her audience he/she wants to get to his/her public, he/she wants to reach his/her people, he/she can!
Even if he is sixty-five years old.
I have customers of sixty-five years old who today say to me “Hey, the voice energy! I went back to playing tennis and got my old habits back, I’m not saying that my hair has grown back but I mean my voice tends to be energy!
So my answer is yes.

Valera Robecco:
I could continue for now but I would like to give I would also give the opportunity to someone in the audience to ask Milena what he/she wants
Does anybody have a specific question?

GianMarco Capogna:
I’m Gianmarco, I’m very happy.
We chatted last night with Milena and Valeria to get a little preview and we were all very pleasantly impressed by how Milena is able to make us enter the world, her world, of Vocal Coaching. This is not necessarily so easy. Who does choose to approach a workshop, a lesson, a meeting, and then is not specifically predisposed in that sense, to listen to a voice and/or to understand what this voice is saying?
I was pleasantly impressed about Milena’s ability to make accessible the topic of voice. Mylena’s ability is to make accessible a very complex topic and to relate it to the hidden potential that each of us has in expressing ourselves, in listening to ourselves, in being able to listen to ourselves also to relate with others. This is what communication is all about and in my opinion this is really interesting.
I’ve listened to you very much and, as Massimo Veccia said at the beginning, I’m also very happy that this new direction and planning of Learn Italy, which ranges from training Italian Language to the promotion of Italian talents, has already started a brand-new path with Milena.
Precisely because our idea of promoting talents of Italy’s excellence are not only the gastronomic and culinary talent, which are perhaps the one that is most easily linked to our tradition, but is also the history of culture, experience, widespread and even particular professionalism, which have therefore built an experience 
They are start-ups, emerging people because of the type of work they do for the contribution they make, in this case in the United States and in the rest of the world also for a contribution of generational vision. 
So I listened to you with great pleasure and I think this speech is very interesting, because it touches everyone because we all have to somehow communicate, somehow we need to relate with other people so know, be aware of our voice tool, our possibilities is in my opinion fundamental.

Massimo Veccia:
I say two things.
The fact that Gianmarco expressed the concept so well makes me think, as he is the one that organized all this great event, which is a beautiful resonance both in the United States and in Italy in these hours and will have it in the upcoming days!
So that he himself said these words convinces me even more of the right steps we are doing, the steps we are doing I know well how much work there was behind because I pointed it out, but he’s the one who actually brought it to fruition, so good!
I have a doubt as to why our doctor Mangione, deputy secretary general of the CGIE, did not say anything?

Silvana Mangione:
I’m here!

Massimo Veccia:
I was worried about you!

Silvana Mangione:
I’m a short, from here you can all see me.
A flood of reactions!

Mylena Vocal Coach:

Silvana Mangione:
A multitude of reactions, why?
The first thing “chapeau”!
and this is obvious, given for granted, end of transmissions!
The second thing that made me think is that when we think about communication, we are all used to consider the contents of communication and not the form in which communication takes place. This is because it involves us in certain scenarios and in others it does not, and because sometimes we are convinced that something wonderful has been communicated to us when in reality the contents are not there.
But it exists this ability to “offer”, as it was said in the ancient and antiquated times, that however always remains one of the techniques that can save the lack of the things that you were describing to us.
So my first feedback is this.
The second one is I want to read your book immediately. I will start tonight, then tomorrow afternoon I will interrogate you when we see you at the Italian Consulate, that’s a fact!
The third ons is I noticed, here I return to the technique for a moment, because the public speaking is a delicacy thing of importance and it is such a duty to do it right because if you communicate to an audience, that listens to you and it is impressionable, something wrong in the right way or something right, interesting, in wrong way, you betrayed yourself, but even who is listening to you.
The “famous”, I make the concept of the “vibration” much smaller, but the vibration that can be established when one of the two pieces is missing becomes very dangerous and is something of which we also talked with the girls during their training!
There’s one more thing.
There is the matter of humility with which to speak to others because each of us has made a path of knowledge and then two or three mini certainties, let’s not exaggerate, the great certainties do not exist, but mini certainties we have achieved them
The humility of telling in a way that I do not make my mini certainty become something carved into the stone, that you have to learn to copy immediately, that this gives you certainties of some kind, is not true
our mini certainty can only be a starting point for the thought of those who are listening to us and
so it can be a mini gift, always a small thing, a beginning of thing, a gift that can lead the other person to reason if certain things and then to return us a reasoning enriched by the other who listened, heard, perceived through our humility in offering,
Thank you so much.

Maria Luisa Rossi Hawkins:
I have two questions:
The first is, I am convinced that depending on the language used by who speaks, who communicates, changes not only tone, nuance, but also personality.
The same thing said in Italian is completely different if it is said, expressed, in English.
Do you, in your profession as Voice Coach, change your way of learning, teaching and transforming your client’s voice, depending on the language?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
Of course there is a study first from my side. If the culture is very different, of course I have to know it, but the sound is more important. That’s why I traveled a lot listening to the native language of each of these populations because they gave me a clear vibration that when a person who has that origin comes to me, I already know that it has that vibration and that culture, because the culture comes after a vibration following where we live. 
Every country has a resonance.
The United States has many natural elements that affect the language of the United States
when someone complains with me “English in the U.S. has few words, they’re poor.”
How come?
That may be true. How come?
Because this country is so vast that if they had to make a treaty to say something someone would be lost in the desert someone else would be dispersed somewhere else
so it is immediate that the message comes above all that of need so the exact answer is this yes I must know, but Inborn Voice has the ability to make the message universal
But of course I have to give a work of knowledge, linked first to the sound and vibration of the language we are talking about.

Maria Luisa Rossi Hawkins:
The second question is specifically addressed to you as a therapist, because in English it is said “to find one voice”, which means finding yourself.
It doesn’t just mean talking properly or communicating.
How much the process of a person who wants to talk, wants to find herself, marks her as a therapist.
How much does the process of teaching a person mark you as a therapist?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
It’s like taking a rough diamond and making it shine!
It is still crucial for me, I repeat, I am not the protagonist, I am a messenger
So this message, when someone manages to communicate, to reach the others, here is why people call me “Voice Guru”, so let’s go to the most spiritual, deep and internal. I receive automatically a wonderful feedback, a great satisfaction because it has enriched me too, but above all because seeing people, not only happy, would be a word too “easy”, satisfied, it’s my job.

Valeria Robecco:
I would like to ask you another question, another thing that also inspired me a bit what you said before.  Trump said “we” and “not me” and also a bit about what Silvana said. How difficult it was, if you happened to find a person who came to you, a customer of yours who may have had a certain presence is a good speaker but was too focused or focused on itself. 

Mylena Vocal Coach:
Do you mean egocentric?

Valeria Robecco:
Yes, or that in any case that happens in our trade when you always say, “I”, instead of maybe talking in the plural, it happens if you are the president of a company
If you are the CEO of a company sometimes you feel reassured when a person uses the “we” instead of “I”?

Mylena Vocal Coach:
When this happens, luckily I do not know for what strange reason it is certainly not a rational reason.
I say this again: my student, my client, the person who comes to me,
is the protagonist. If he starts with an “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, he/she will stop very quickly because I never reply with an “I”.
So after about 15 minutes he realizes and says, “What about you?”
And the “I” becomes an “us”.

Valeria Robecco:
This is awesome!
Thanks to all, but especially thanks to Milena because I think she taught us so much, not only of her method, but maybe she makes us understand something better than ourselves so really thank you for this interview!
