As an avid educator and researcher, Mr. Nascimento is a Tomatis® Method Practioner. The method invented by the French scientist Alfred Tomatis, considered the Einstein of the ear, works with an electronic device that uses a sound training therapy processed music to stimulate the Auditory Processing System. This stimulation enables a precise integration of acoustic information and allows the brain to better receive, select and process this information. The method’s application has a direct impact on the voice making it suppler, lighter, more tinted, endowed with a more precise articulation, and goes way beyond musical application including ADD, ADHD, Dislexia, Speech issues, and much more! Placido Domingo, Sting and Maria Callas are some of the famous clients of this method largely diffused in Europe.
