INSIDE THE SINGING VOICE: Vocal Technique Unpacked

With Dr Gillyanne Kayes & Jeremy Fisher

The real "how-to" of singing

This three-day intensive is packed with information, techniques and hot tips for singing in different genres.

"At last someone has understood the sounds I am making and can help me move forward from here" Christine, choral leader, UK

"Before I was basing my singing on feelings and sensations. Now I KNOW what I'm doing, how to improve it" Maria T, actor singer, Spain

"True breakthrough moments. When the singing techniques were put into practice, the vocal quality shifted before our eyes and ears" Lisa Wilson, Past President VASTA, USA

Here are some of the singing topics and vocal techniques you will learn on the course:

1. Discover the secrets of breathing in singing: how and when you breathe in, and what to do with it once you've got it

Abs, ribs, controlling the outbreath and 'support'

How your vocal folds work: making contact, resisting breath, creating sound

Deconstriction (allowing breath in and not 'throat controlling')

2. Discover how to make and control volume in singing

Breath and vocal folds: flow and levels of resistance, subglottal pressure

The cut and thrust of singing: Twang or your personal sound booster

Get your back into it: Finding the voice body connection for support

3. Range - finding it and controlling it

Pitching - how is pitch made and what your vocal folds need to do

Finding your full range, your working range and your comfort zone

Gear changes: Hide, disguise or feature?

4. Resonance - how to find it, how to change it for different sound qualities

Nasal or not? Identifying nasality and dealing with it

'Correct' vowels and why they might change with different music styles

Knowing where your tongue goes and how it can shape the sound

5. Putting it together!

Why context is EVERYTHING

What's YOUR style? The vocal demands of your particular music

Singing words - some problems and solutions

All of the above include targeted exercises to discover how your voice works and what it is capable of.

"I can honestly say that I have never had a learning experience that was so useful yet so enjoyable at the same time. Your 'can do' approach and focussed encouragement made the atmosphere so unthreatening, and as a result everyone was relaxed and willing to try things out with some astonishing results - it was just voice heaven!"
