With My Mouth I Will Sing Praise
"Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts." Psalm 105:2 My Gospel singing course will explore the foundations of effective gospel singing, including phrasing, riffing, and shouting - in addition to traditional vocal technique used for overall healthy singing. The course begins with a history of gospel music from a vocal standpoint, and then move to the improvisational components of singing. Since gospel music is more about singing the "good news," we will study improvisation techniques from shouting to gospel riffs. You will discover how various scales, like the pentatonic and blues scales, are used in gospel singing to create a truly soulful sound. The goal of the course is to help the gospel singer gain a clear understanding of gospel phrasing, scale patterns, proper breathing, pitch accuracy, and clear rhythmic articulation. Hope to see you in class. Keep singing the GOOD NEWS..GOSPEL MUSIC.
About Christine G.

"It's not just about creativity. It's about the person you're becoming while creating." This quote epitomizes my teaching philosophy concisely. My mission is to raise my students’ artistic confidence, grow their skills, and teach them to enjoy the art-making process while building integrity and good character. I started performing on stage at the age of four years old. I began formal private lessons in voice and acting at the age of 10 at The Newark School of the Arts and at The Children’s Theater Workshop in Essex County, New Jersey. As a young teen, I also began directing and leading the youth and adult choirs in church. As a result of my commitment to my craft, I had numerous opportunities to perform and record as an accomplished artist throughout the United States and abroad. As an international performer, my credits include touring throughout the country of China as a lead singer for the state of the arts Thai City Theater. Other recent credits include working as a lead production singer for the renowned cruise line, Carnival; sailing the Western and Eastern Caribbean islands performing Las Vegas-style production shows. I am currently the CEO of my own entertainment company 2-4-1 Entertainment and mobile music school. I perform regularly for various commercial establishments and private venues. I studied Music and Theater at Montclair State University earning a BA degree along with a teaching license in performing arts. The overall goal of my teaching philosophy is to cultivate independent and critically thinking artists. I want to produce well-rounded individuals, instill a lifelong love of music and theater in every student, and create an effective performance medium in which students will grow not only musically, but also personally and professionally. Through these principles, I strive to become a key mentor in their educational journey. *** Lesson Details *** If you love singing, then you should love your lessons. Lessons with me are fun, challenging as well as enriching. Instruction will include: -Light stretching exercises to reduce tension and relax muscles that can block good vocal production and vocal freedom. -Carefully listen to, accessing and giving you feedback about your vocal potential and growth -Identifying vocal range and limitations -Proper vocal techniques with respect to vocal scales, learning to breathe, pitch, tonality, durability, and posture -Selecting music collaboratively that suits your tastes and ability -Working with professional backing tracks like many contemporary artists in the industry -Lyrical interpretation with respect to performance -Sharing the understanding of vocal anatomy and how it affects singing -Allowing you to record lessons for practice purposes. -Comfortable environments where asking questions are encouraged and making mistakes are simply part of the learning process. -Teaching and practicing good vocal health, including the need to drink water and monitor the speaking voice -Building confidence as a singer and performer As much as I love teaching and building relationships with voice students in my studio, I do not believe lessons should be limited to the classroom. The training process may include performing in small venues for family and friends to acquaint the student with performing in front of an audience. My goal is to teach students who have a desire to perform the necessary rudiments of singing and performing so they can go out into the world and shine as a polished singer!
