Vocal Foundations for Consistent Tone

You've got great pitch and rhythm; now let's make your vocal tone consistent!

Class experience

Applying proper use of the diaphragm for breathing and engaging, relaxing the throat, posture, face muscles, and mind for unobstructed air passage, and enunciating to access tone-generating cavities of the skull are proven techniques for generating consistent tone for all genres and singers. Week 1 focuses on utilizing the diaphragm for deeper breaths, flexing for support with higher notes, and introduction to belting. Week 2 coursework is all about relaxing the body and mind so the air fills our vocal instruments instead of being hindered by tension. Week 3 is filled with enunciation techniques to work the mouth muscles so that all parts of the skull are generating our desired tones for high and low notes. Week 4 puts all of these techniques to work together in order to challenge each learner to make these foundational skills great habits for future vocal endeavors.
All private vocal students have at least one of these foundational techniques that need further work before moving on to more advanced techniques like belting, range extensions, and performance prep. By offering this flex class, learners will be better prepared for continuing their vocal training with private lessons, regardless of whoever their instructor is, and setting themselves up for future success with the necessary fundamentals for singing in any style. As an experienced professional musician and educator, I am able to design lessons that benefit all types of learning styles, challenges, and needs. Whether I am singing in front of a band while playing multiple instruments or as a solo performer while accompanying myself on guitar or piano, the skills from this class have allowed me to confidently and consistently entertain audiences internationally.
