Singing Teacher/Vocal Coach

Do you love singing?
Do you loose power in your voice when the tune you’re singing is low?
Are your higher notes thin and weak?
Do you experience shifts in your voice when singing through your range from low to high or high to low?
Do you run out of breath easily?
Is your voice tired or hoarse after singing?

If you answered ‘yes’ to one or more of these questions, you’ll enjoy singing lessons/vocal coaching as they cover all these issues and more.

Here’s a couple of tips to get you started.
1. Keep your posture well aligned from head to toe as if your head is being pulled upwards by a piece of string.
2. While keeping your shoulders still, breathe from your diaphragm allowing your belly and chest to expand.
3. Sing quietly to look after your vocal chords. The power will come later.
4. Focus your sound onto the roof of your mouth to give your voice tone, quality and strength.

When I first started singing, I had no natural talent, just a quiet tuneful voice but a strong desire to sing. This reminds me of one of my students years ago who initially couldn’t sing in tune when he first came to lessons but within 18 months he sang ‘Music of the Night’ from ‘Phantom of the Opera’ and was brilliant. He achieved this by vocal techniques and his own determination.

If you love singing, you don’t need to have a naturally gifted or even tuneful voice because your desire to sing, along with training, determination and perseverance, you will succeed.
