  • Vocal Techniques

    If you listen to a vocal line, you will see how rare it is to hear a "monotone" or one note singer. When you speak, your voice lifts and drops, increases and decreases in volume, this is referred to as 'LIGHT & SHADE' or 'EXPRESSION' and is the key to making an average song into a highly listenable one. So how do you achieve the same effect in your vocal performance? 

    The answer is to learn about how sounds and shapes are created then integrate this with natural feeling and emotion. Part of a singing teachers job is to provide the student with exercises and techniques plus identify tensions to aid the singer in exploring their own potential and singing in a healthy manner.
