Teaching internationally, now, Robert leads intriguing and transformative workshops for singers and singing teachers regularly throughout Spain and France and is excited to bring his unique brand of experiential vocal learning around the world.
Robert Sussuma, originally from New York City, is an explorer, a life-long learner and a connoisseur of connections: movement, speaking and singing, voice science, emotions, music, motor learning, neurology-in-action, and deep personal development – to name a few. His formal education is in vocal performance (Bachelors of Music in Voice Performance and Masters of Music in Early Music Voice Performance). However, early in that training, he was introduced to the Feldenkrais® Method of Somatic Education and has seen the two fields as inseparable ever since. He is now a Guild Certified Feldenkrais® Practitioner.
Robert has taught Private Voice Lessons and Voice and Movement Classes at Naropa University (Boulder, Colorado), Haverford College (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) and PACE University (New York, New York), and has maintained an active private studio for over 15 years, most recently working with with well-known and successful actors and singers in NYC. Robert has also been a guest teacher at Harvard University, the University of Michigan and Barcelona University.
