Money Notes for Days: Sustainable Singing for Popular Styles

Thursday 28th March 2024, 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM (London Time)

It’s a fact that most university training for singers is in the acoustic, Western classical genres. It’s also a fact that most clients and students of independent voice instructors want training in popular styles and contemporary music theatre. The obvious outcome of this disconnect is that most voice teachers and coaches are ill-equipped to meet the needs of their clients.

Understanding how to be an effective coach for singers of popular musics requires more than just a few handy exercises. Being an effective coach means understanding why you’re not a teacher, what your client’s assumptions are around the coaching process, and which tools they need to navigate the world of amplified music.

Your brain sings before you do. It also turns sound waves into hearing. When voice coaches know how to work with the way people are 'wired', they can stop guessing, and feel empowered in their abilities to help their clients.

In this workshop, you’ll begin to train your ears to what you’ve been missing in popular styles. We’ll identify the 'it' factor, and learn how it can be the magic to sustainable high, rock 'belt'; the sound singers of contemporary music theatre, R&B, indie, rock and jazz, and your singer-songwriters nearly all want to achieve.

We’re going to look at two concepts, both the 'why' and the 'how'. You’ll also find out about a single word you may be using that could be holding your students back! You’ll get to watch your own brain in action, and you’ll leave with powerful tools to apply to your teaching.
