BEGINNERS: 1st Meeting Walk in, Walk Out Singing/playing...........Learn to sing very quickly correctly for a career or just for your own pleasure~!
INTERMEDIATE - ADVANCED: Learn to really saaaaaang very quickly, going beyond your limitations~!
GETTING READY TO LAY DOWN A PRO VOCAL TRACK????......This is the kind of vocal coach you need with you in the studio to keep you on your 'A Game'. You can't always depend on the Producer & certainly not an engineer to bring that out of you~!
AUDITIONING FOR TV SINGING COMPETITIONS???........I give you what you'll need to go against the stiff competition.

....Learn to tell a 'lyrical story' with your voice & the song through breathing and phrasing.
....Singers who dance - learn to not lose your breath while dancing & to use movement as a means of support for your vocal tricks (some of you have gone to schools learning music, dance & even acting, but do not know how to put these skills together in a competitive package. I show you how).
....Learn to go from chest voice to a strong head voice smoothly.
....Learn to sing & play an instrument together & not look awkward
....Learn to use your 'ear' to inspire you to take chances with your voice/instrument that work in the song while staying in pitch.
....Learn to sing or play various styles effectively & how to utilize those styles for your own musical growth.
....Working singers.....Learn to pace yourself & sing 3-5 nights a week without losing your voice.
....Learn to approach & eventually acquire the "riffing" ability of the top Gospel/R&B/Soul/Pop artists & be able to add these vocalese techniques to your style.

I didn’t know anything about music, other than I like listening to it. The instructor is very attentive to what I needed to accomplish. We decided I needed a different task to master first, and the whole lesson got easier. Looking forward to the next lesson!
