About the author
Gil Magno is a vocal coach and author. Born June 14, 1934, on Madeira Island, (Portugal), he came to the US as a child. He began music in Jr. High School and won many honors in High School. He graduated from the Boston Conservatory of Music with a BA Degree in Music Education. As a bassoonist, he performed extensively with many symphony orchestras in New England and the South. He studied voice with Grace Hunter, Mario Farrar, a few other teachers, and briefly at L.A. City College. He studied Classical Guitar with Sophocles Papas in Washington DC. He also attended a master class in conducting with the renown French conductor, Pierre Monteaux, and studied conducting with Maestro Atilio Poto of Boston. He played with the Birmingham (AL) Symphony for three years and the RI Philharmonic for four years. He also taught High School in Birmingham and his band won many honors including first place in the State two years in a row. He formed the Birmingham Society of Classical Guitar and performed extensively as a singer/guitarist. He was on TV many times. In MA he opened his own Magnoart Studio and performed as song stylist for many years here. He formed the Boston Guitar Circle Inc. and the Portuguese/Spanish Folk Song Society. He also founded the Magnoart Guitar Symphonette - 13 classical guitars, cello and bass. He realized that the voice - the human instrument - is very different from other instruments in that, once the technique is mastered, success depends on the character of the singer. So he uses self-empowerment methods to develop "the person behind the voice," which is his innovative contribution to the art of singing and his school of teaching. Some of his students are now performing all over the country and/or have positions teaching in recognized schools. Two of his students were accepted in master classes with Alexander Lagoya of France and Oscar Ghiglia of Italy. All his serious students claim, without fail, a great rise in self-esteem and ability to confront life. He has been teaching for 40 years. Mr. Magno is also a published poet, author, songwriter, and a member of ASCAP, (American Society of Composers and Publishers). He has recorded two CDs titled, A Tapestry of Love, of his original songs, and, To You - My Imaginary Friend, The Poetry of Gil Magno. His publications are the books: Developing Confidence and Personal Magnetism, which he uses as a textbook for advanced students; The Secret; How to Attract Your Love-Life-Partner; revision and expansion of the works on magnetism by Webster Edgerly; and his autobiography, Transcending Their Lies – An Artist’s Struggle to Free Himself from the Lies of Civilization. Instruction material on DVD/CD/video includes the best seller, Magno Vocal Course #1 - DVD; Magno Advanced Vocal Technique; The Philosophy of Gil Magno – DVD; The story of My Transformation and How You Too Can Transform. The courses which he originally created for advanced vocal students are now given all over the world to non-singers as well. They are: Course #5 – Self Transformation through Personal Magnetism; Course #5+Plus – Secrets of Living Life, and, Course #5A – In Tune with Self through Spiritual Science. He is a member of the Miami Music Teachers Association and Music Teachers National Association; and has been listed in Who’s Who for the past 20 years.
