Body – Develop your posture, movement, energy, breath for great vocal quality and care.

Mind – Mentally prepare for great singing with balanced emotions, centred focus, mindfulness, calm, and confidence.

Musicality – Heighten your ears to the incredible sounds of your voice in harmony with instruments and vocals.  Produce fluidity of rhythms, harmonies and theories to aid in your vocal proficiency.

Voice Care – Experience the joys of singing correctly to minimise sore, hoarse or a lost voice for short and long periods of time.

General Note on Voice Techniques Taught – Voice skills taught in the training are the same for Professional and Amateur Singers & Vocalists.  Techniques used in the intensive are singers’ best practices for the health of the voice.

Singers with or without a degree in music are encouraged to join the intensive. For you who have music or singing degrees, this training may challenge some of your learned techniques as you learn easier and personalised techniques for an improved singing voice.

This intensive is not a one size fits all training, this is not a how to be better than me intensive – this is an intensive to improve you, your voice, your singing.  I acknowledge your individuality as a singer at your development level and honour your courage to improve.
