Using the on-line Zoom platform, we'll work on a full range of singing skills including; coordinatingbreathing, and shaping your throat, tongue and mouth to enhance your singing and form words. There are lots of ways to use your instrument -  but some produce better results, are more sustainable (fewer injuries), and each musical style benefits from a unique combination of skills.

We'll also explore how your body works, and help you develop more awareness and control so that you'll sing better using a variety of  tone color, dynamics and clear pronunciation. As your voice teacher I will patiently translate the science of singing so that you understand what’s happening where, how it affects your singing and how you to manage it.

During your voice lessons I will help you master the following important skills:

  • Applied anatomy, physiology and acoustics of singing
  • Articulation (pronunciation)
  • Breath management
  • Consonant-vowel-consonant (CVC) joins
  • Twang
  • Pitch matching/Improving Intonation
  • Resonance strategies

  • Vocal onsets and offsets
