Each vocal lesson is individual because each student is unique. No two voices are the same and that is the beautiful thing about developing an individuals voice,whatever your ages, whatever your ability, whether you are a beginner or a professional vocalist, we can all better ourselves and make the most out of what we have been given… and who knows what you will discover one you start learning the right techniques for your voice.
Vocal lessons include a large number of techniques to suit the individual to help improve vocal health, breathing, range, pitch, strength, timing and confidence. Students are encouraged to choose their now songs to work on in the lessons and to do regular recording sessions in the lessons to build confidence and to listen to their own voices….its also a lot of fun. If students are pleased with the outcome of the recording session, there is an opportunity to make a professional youtube video so that you can share your achievements with your friends and family.
Many students wish sit vocal examinations to help further their knowledge of music and singing. Rock school are the UK’s number 1 vocal examination board in contemporary music, they offer a wide range of songs to choose from and you are able to choose your own songs as well. The exam can be taken in one of 2 ways, performance or technical. the performance grade just requires you to sing set pieces and ones of your own choice to an external examiner, the technical grade requires you to learn scale, arpeggios, harmonies, rhythm, phrasing and dynamics, music theory, sign reading and improvisation, great skills for those wishing to study music and college or university.
