How And What We Teach
Everybody can sing! It is our job to help YOU sing the best that YOU can.
The process begins with an Assessment of your voice in order that we can “Diagnose” what your ‘Tendency’ is. Following the diagnosis we are able to prescribe a series of exercises that we know (and have been proven!) will assist the student to iron out their own tendency in the most healthy, safe and long standing way.
Believe it or not we get a lot of nervous people in to our studio! With this in mind we would like to minimise any nervous feelings or perceptions that first-time students might feel before they come visit.
• We do not judge anybody on how ‘good/bad’ they are at singing (EVER!)
• We do believe that singing is a learned skill and that anybody can learn to sing
• Where you are sitting right now… We were also there before
• Improving your voice is A PROCESS.
Here are some common issues we address at the Vocal Academy:
Sometimes I feel like I’m pushing or straining on my high notes…
We’ll show you how to blend your low and high voice together so there’s no need to push up your bottom voice to reach high notes. Start singing with ease and presence.
Sometimes I feel like I’m singing in two voices with a break in the middle…
We use Vocal Exercises that erase the break to give you a connected voice. Learn to sing so it sounds like one voice from bottom to top.
Sometimes my voice feels weak and breathy…
We will show you how to sing more like how you speak so your voice is clear and full. When you can sing any of your notes at a quiet, medium or loud dynamic you have more musical expressivity.
Build your range, smooth out the bumps and start enjoying your voice more… all by using the unique vocal tools and exercises. Depending on your needs we may also address vibrato, melodic and stylistic flexibility, vocal care and therapy, application to songs and styles.
Our Approach is to understanding your Approach.
The Vocal Academy approaches all students according to their specific needs. In just one lesson we can quickly assess any issues and prescribe an approach to correct and improve your voice through IVA exercises. Vocal Balance is an ever-moving target and our investment in Highly Focused Vocal Pedagogy ensures that we keep focused on that target even as the pendulum swings moment to moment.
