“It’s not about how much you know, it’s understanding what your student needs.”
Over the weekend we help you ditch the singing myths, streamline your current knowledge and add new insights. Each day you will get to try out the exercises and techniques we learn under each topic. You’ll also discover how to apply them to different situations. You will leave with practical techniques to use right away in your studio, your class or your university.
Singing teaching can be isolating, even if you work in an institution. In an unregulated profession, we can feel uncertain about our knowledge base, our level, as well as our effectiveness as teachers. But what we want MOST is to help our students improve.
“Had a lesson today which was epic thanks to the ‘find the problem and solve it’ rule.”
Kate Cubley PGCert Grad, VoiceWorkshop

“Teaching will never be the same after this. It’s life changing.”

By the end of the weekend you will be able to:
- Monitor your students’ progress efficiently and plan long-term goals with a new vocal profiling checklist
- Move creatively between a vocal warm-up, a skill-learning exercise and a song coaching session within a singing lesson
- Devise exercises for vocal development that work for your particular client base
- Trouble-shoot with confidence the common vocal problems of breath use, phonation, resonance, articulation and voice-body balance.
- Use language and instruction in a flexible way so that what you say resonates with your students.
