FAQ for Singers on Vocal Instruction:
*Your voice is tired, hoarse, hurts or (worse) you lose it, after singing or speaking for a period of time.
*You can’t hit the high notes, are straining, or your voice cracks (especially at performances).
*You don’t know your vocal range, how to manage the one you have, or the best keys to sing in.
*You sing flat (under the pitch), have trouble hearing the note and are out of breath consistently.
*You lose tone the more you speak or can’t project across a room without straining.
And for Front Singers or Solo Artists:
*Your manager or band members notice vocal problems at gigs or in the studio and suggest getting coaching.
*You know you can sing, but feel you lack direction and confidence in performance.
The larynx is a muscle. If you’re a singer, your body is your instrument. Having a technique protects you when you’re ill, tired, not at your best. It also allows you to build your voice and expand it into the best sounding “instrument” possible. A great technique allows you to depend on your voice when you really need it. It also gives you tools to sound your best onstage and in the studio.
Vocal Coaching like any coaching gives you a foundation and starts where you are. The benefits are many.
*Improves and builds breath control and stamina
*Gives you confidence in your singing ability and stage presence
*Improves your performance – onstage or in the recording studio
*Grounds you in your body
*Expands vocal range and improves tone
*Enhances timing and musicality
*Provides ear training
*Allows you to be more confident with other musicians
*Helps you know how to get a great performance
Singers, speakers, professionals, or anyone who wants to sound better and be more confident
Anyone whose livelihood depends on their voice, or would be enhanced by singing/speaking technique
Closet singers who love to sing with the radio and would love to sing on pitch in choirs, at Karaoke Bars, for Christmas Caroling…
and of course,
rock stars, pop stars, actors, broadcast professionals, comedians…
(Michael Jackson, Madonna, to name a few)
That depends on where you are now and where you’d like to go. Everyone’s goals for singing are different. If you’d like to sing (audition) for a choir, for example, you’d want to work on your technique and get the song together to do your best. If you’re a pro having vocal problems, your goal may be to find out what’s causing it and learn techniques to solve those problems. The good news is that you can get better with great coaching and practice; and for those who’d like to get to a professional level or expand from there, you’re in the right place.
