Description

With proper techniques and/or correction of vocal habits through singing lessons, a singer can normally see immediate results in the usage of his/her voice. However, if your goal is to have more consistent results and to see permanent improvements to your voice over the long term, a course of singing lessons over a period of time is recommended. This is because singing is very much a habit, and “quick-fixes” need to be reinforced over a period of time before healthy habits of singing become a singer’s ‘default’ habit.

Vocal Mastery is an 8-week vocal and singing course, designed to help you understand how your voice works, how to have better vocal control, and how to continuously improve your singing even on your own.

The course comprises vocal and singing lessons which provides you with the knowledge of fundamentals that are important in establishing good Vocal Techniques in Contemporary Singing. Cultivate a healthy vocal regime that can change your voice tremendously by mastering your Vocal Control through various Relaxation, Breath Control & Vocal Exercises. Repertoire of songs in the syllabus are not fixed, and is usually selected before our singing lessons based on your current vocal habits – to push you out of your comfort zone, in order for you to expand your vocal range and control.

Learn how to tap into your natural ability to sing well through the four vocal gears which contemporary singing revolves around – Anchor, Frost, Cry & Belt. Study and learn how to apply these along with other principles of Vocal Technique in Contemporary Singing in various genres or music that include blues, pop, soul, R&B, rock, jazz & more.

Vocal techniques learnt in this course are applicable and practical both for recording and live singing performances.

Additional Materials

+ Study notes.

+ Audio files to practice with.

Description

Similar to Vocal Mastery, Song Mastery also helps you understand how your voice works as a musical instrument and how to sing with ease. The main difference is that Song Mastery focuses on helping you master specific songs of your voice. Upon completion of the singing lessons in this 8-week singing course, you’ll walk away with the knowledge on how to sing your selected songs with power and conviction, and to continuously improve your voice on your own.

Based on the same syllabus as that of Vocal Mastery, our singing lessons in this course provides you with the knowledge of vocal fundamentals that are important in establishing good Vocal Technique in Contemporary Singing, and how to sing better through the four vocal gears which Contemporary Singing revolves around – Anchor, Frost, Cry & Belt. The course will also help you develop a vocal regime that can change your voice tremendously by mastering your Vocal Control through various Relaxation, Breath Control & Vocal Exercises.

The difference between Vocal Mastery & Song Mastery is the repertoire of the songs that will be used in the singing lessons. For Song Mastery, you will decide on the choice of songs you would like to sing throughout the course. Why this approach? Because every singer is motivated differently and also have different vocal goals – some are motivated to improve their singing through the singing of a variety of songs, while some are motivated by the mastery of specific songs. If you have a particular style of singing/music which you would prefer to perform more than others, or if your vocal goal is simply to master a specific number of songs and learn effective vocal techniques while at it, you are the ideal candidate for Song Mastery. Song Mastery is also suitable for singer-songwriters who would like to develop their voices towards their current music direction.

Vocal techniques learnt in this course are applicable and practical both for recording and live singing performances.

Additional Materials

+ Study notes.

+ Audio files to practice with.
