So here's the plan.

DOWNLOAD THE TRAINING FILES

First I’ll want you to acquire a collection of vocal training exercises to work with, the cost of which is about $97. These files come in male and female ranges, so you are to work with the files suited to your gender.

REGULAR FOLLOW-UPS

Training doesn’t end in just one session. If you want your voice to grow and to stay at the top of your game, you must ALWAYS do the exercises on a regular basis. The most important thing is to KNOW what you’re doing, and to seek advice from me on a regular basis—AND to book the private sessions from time to time just to help you along.

Why Understanding Your Voice and How it SHOULD Work Is So Important for Singers

What I like about vocal training is that it is a practical business. No amount of theory will do the work—no-matter how detailed—unless you actually get down to doing the work. That being said, paying attention to instruction and listening to demonstration is the key to your success. There’s no point in allowing your mind to drift someplace else whilst you’re training, because chances are you will miss a thing or two. Unless of course you have been training for a while and so you’re already doing the scales with perfect form. This article will aim to show you the importance of understanding your voice, to truly become a great singer.

I’ve met and trained the drifters. Oftentimes, they would come away with nothing because nothing seems to sink in. Yes, vocal training is a practical business but at the end of the day if you’re not even paying attention to practical instruction then what else can you expect.

Here are a couple of details you need to pay particular attention to. You must hear the piano; your voice must respond according to what it hears in order to deliver those notes as it should be; and you must endeavor to understand the correct way of using your voice in tune with the music. Oftentimes I find myself saying, you must get inside the music and that you should avoid trying to simulate the notes you deliver to the piano. Instead, you must deliver them as they should be, with more of an edge sound and power behind the note. A simulated tone is more like trying to sound like the piano but not quite there yet. This sort of tone will allow your voice to fall apart unceremoniously—meaning you’re really failing to hold a note. Aim to deliver your notes with a fuller voice in speech level posture.

In Summary: If you’ve heard the example, try and do it exactly as demonstrated. Don’t go out all guns blazing doing your own thing. Do it exactly as demonstrated. The only reason we do these vocal exercises is to help develop your voice. So stay in line. Make sure your chest voice is connecting to your head voice. That way you’ll develop a well connected speech level posture that’ll bring out your true voice in all its radiant glory.

It happens to the best of us at times, when the voice is simply tired and could use a break. When you’re sensing the onset of vocal fatigue—for whatever reason—the best remedy is to drop a few octaves when you speak, as it does provide a great amount of comfort and relief.

Why You Mustn’t Take Singing Lessons to Simply 'Prove Yourself' to Anybody

Indeed, quite an off the beaten track topic this is, but I’ve been inspired to write this article because I know it can help a lot of people come to terms with how important it is to take up singing lessons not to prove themselves to anybody, but to do it for themselves. Some particular cases emanating from my studio have made me realize how a self inflicted burden such as this can affect a pupil. So let me explain the thought processes that run through such an individual’s mind, and how that affects their performance and concentration in class.

The crux of the matter is, one taking up singing lessons to prove to someone else or a group of people that they have the potential to become good singers, instead of that being a source of motivation to achieve what they signed up for, it tends to lay a huge burden upon them that constantly distracts them from focusing. Through the lesson, I have observed, that I repeat myself on countless occasions. The pupil, I find to be eternally self conscious and lacks the confidence to perform well. When I dig into the probable cause of this, I find that there’s someone or some people waiting to see HOW they fair. Now this puts a lot of pressure on them to deliver because they’re constantly worried about failure. And the end result is they DO fail miserably because they’re way too distracted to concentrate on learning. It becomes a state of constant fear and panic. Not a pretty sight. If anything, it is very annoying.

So here’s the deal. You want to learn to sing? Do it for YOU. Do not get into this to prove anything whatsoever to anyone in your circle of friends or elsewhere. (In any case, why would anyone want to do that?) If you hadn’t read this article you wouldn’t have discovered that it actually works against you. You’d be better off not taking singing lessons at all. Wouldn’t you agree? The ideal student of voice is one that wants to do it to improve their voice for THEM rather than for anybody else. And this type of student steps into class looking forward to the lesson and enjoying the therapeutic qualities of the lesson. Just the other day, one of students said to me “I really feel relaxed when I come here. This is a form of therapy. And looking out the window, your garden is so beautiful it adds to the calm.” So there you have it! If you want to enjoy your singing lessons AND come away with something, take a more relaxed approach. The less outside pressure you impose upon yourself the better. So be sure to leave your burden at the door, and enjoy the lesson.
