What’s the Technique?
Learn to sing in mix voice with an emphasis of improving vocal range without cracks or breaks, eliminating the squeeze that can make your voice tired or damaged and improving general quality of tone. This is accomplished using a proven system of exercises which balance airflow and vocal fold action whilst maintaining a resting larynx. Exercises are tailored each lesson helping students achieve a balanced and beautiful sounding voice. Through training, anyone can learn to sing the songs they enjoy with a nice sounding voice.
Our singing lesson structure
The first half of each session is allocated to exercises in order continuously improve your voice. Then, in the second half students sing songs of their choice. Students and are actively asked to record lessons to provide something to practice to at home.

Many singing find an obstacle when they start working with an instrument or band and may need help with timing, adding correct style and emotion to their music or even help in learning something from scratch.
