DO YOU WANT TO FIND OUT HOW TO BECOME THE BEST SINGER YOU CAN BE?

In this practical singing course you will learn how to find your own unique singing style whilst maintaining a healthy voice. We will look at

  • Breathing

  • Range 

  • Voice qualities (the vocal techniques needed for singing particular styles of music)

  • The break in the passagio

  • Avoiding constriction

  • Projection

  • Diction 

  • Looking after your voice: safe singing

The course is very practical with exercises in every lecture. It is designed to look at one topic every day, but you can keep going back to the exercises which are most useful to you. You can also ask questions and send mp3s for individual feedback on your singing.

The exercises will help you avoid common singing problems like constriction (a feeling of tightness and not being able to get medium high notes out), bridging the break in the passagio (when the higher part of your voice sounds different to the lower part), running out of breath or lack of stamina.

I hold a Master of Music degree and have been teaching singing since 2005 and am myself a signed artist. I have worked with multiplatinum musicians right the way through to young children. At present my youngest student is 6 and the oldest is 102! There are no barriers to finding your voice. Age, experience and negative experiences in the past don't need to stand in the way. I have worked with people just after vocal surgery, I have worked with people who are terrified, I have worked with people who have had their confidence knocked and together we got through the problems and freed up the voice.

If you email me an mp3 or ask me a question you can expect a quick, detailed reply. I'm here to help you!
