How to Get the Most Out of a One Hour Vocal Training Session

I received a rather peculiar message on WhatsApp earlier today, from someone who evidently wasn’t on my list. They complained that despite training diligently they were not getting results. And I asked them HOW did they train? Their explanation was even more bizarre—by SHOUTING!  Well, my response to that was simply, “you don’t train the voice by shouting—you’re deluding yourself.” I have no idea who started this craze in Tanzania, but I can assure you this: this godforsaken practice has destroyed many potentially fine voices. In this article, I want to go over how to make the most of a one hour vocal training session with a tutor as well as on your own.

The following is a very simple vocal training template for success. Start out with a breathing exercise (you’ll find a free download track on my Hulkshare page or on my Learn to Sing with Joett Vocal Training CD), and always do this exercise before you begin your vocal training exercises. The next thing on your list, if you’re working from home, is to do the scales in different combination sets. And once again, my Hulkshare page has examples and with my vocal training CD, the booklet or online page on Alternative Workouts will explain how it’s done. But to be absolutely sure—if you’re learning from home—make sure you listen to demonstration tracks on my Hulkshare page and follow instructions accordingly.

Private lessons in my studio run for a full hour. If you’re training from home, however, I would strongly recommend that once you get a little more proficient with training on your own, try to gun for a one hour session. And if that becomes a bit of a challenge for you, try to do a vocal workout for at least 20 minutes and perhaps gradually build on that. It gets easier with time. And what’s more, I have just recently created a once off one hour private vocal training session you can purchase to help you get started—just with the once off session—in my studio.

If you want to improve your singing voice, read my Vocal Training Product Review for Home Learning article in which I recommend vocal training programs that cover the entire spectrum in voice training to include: Pitch, Tone, Vocal Agility, Head Voice, High Notes, the Mix, Vibrato and MORE.
