What to Expect
The first thing we’ll do is discuss your past, present and future training, performances and goals.
I will assess the quality of your range from the bottom to the top of your voice. This is the assessment section of the lesson.
Next, we’ll talk about the challenges you’ve been having vocally and their root causes without getting too technical or boring (even though there is a ton of cool research I do as a voice teacher).
Then I will prescribe exercises tailored specifically to improve your voice. You should feel an improvement in range and quality quickly.
From there, the sky is the limit. Often, we’ll work on songs you love to develop your voice. Whether it’s increasing range, singing high notes without falsetto, or getting ready for a world tour, it’s important we get right to work on your voice.
The only thing that you should bring is an idea of a song you might like to work on. We will normally try to have you sing a song during your first lesson to apply the exercises we cover.
About the Technique
Everything I do is designed to help my students become the best musicians they can possibly be. For me, that means teaching to vocalists of all levels.
I teach singing as a way of giving back for all the amazing gifts music has brought me.
The vocal technique I teach completely transformed my voice years ago. It also happens to be the same technique used by more than 100 Grammy winners. It’s called Speech Level Singing and was pioneered by Seth Riggs, “Voice Coach to the Stars”—boasting Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and the Red Hot Chili Peppers as clients.
But I teach this technique because I know it’s the simplest, fastest and most effective way of getting you on the stage and performing, no matter what level you are!
Speech Level Singing and my certifying organization, the Institute for Vocal Advancement, believe in achieving a balanced registration from the bottom to the top of your voice while keeping a resting larynx.
That means hitting high notes without falsetto, singing more powerfully and finding your true voice.
This amazing singing technique can be applied to any genre of music.
Here’s how it works:
When you’re speaking there is no tension or manipulation in your voice because your intention is to communicate clearly. Singing should be the same!
Speech Level Singing aims to help you sing across your entire range without any tension or strain.
With exercises and lessons custom tailored to your specific voice, we will get you singing higher and more beautifully than you thought possible.
