Would you like to gain full control over your vocal sound, no matter where or how you use it?
Would you like to be more confident about your vocal performance skills?
Would you like to use a singing technique that allows you to sing in every genre?
Then vocal training is something for you.
Combining the current state of physiological research with years of experience as a vocal coach and a performer, I developed a combination of methods to make improvement of the voice easily accessible.
It rapidly increases vocal control, preparing the voice for flexible adjustment to convince any audience – boosting stage confidence and improving presentation and communication skills.
I coach singers of all backgrounds, experience levels, and age groups, either at one of my studios or on site.
To quickly get a flexible and confident voice that suits every need, we mainly need to keep things clear and train efficiently. That's why my method consists of three simple steps that tackle even the most complicated vocal issues.
Step One: Analysis
The goals in vocal coaching are very diverse: Some want to improve their presentation or pitching skills, others want to get that low voice to increase their authority, while other still simly want a voice that doesn't grow tired.
In any case, the first step we need to take is analysis. The better you understand what you're aiming for, the more you can rule out, making your goals clearer and your training more efficient.
Using common examples as wel as cases from your field of work, we quickly identidy your main points of vocal improvement.
Step Two: Technique
After defining the goals, all you need to do is the proper toolbox to get there. Any vocal toolbox consists of two technical packages:
Vocal Technique. Physiological knowledge and skill to ultimately be able to make every vocal sound imaginable. Really. Every single sound. We all have the same set of muscles, so you can reproduce anything you hear anywhere.
I usually combine the EVT with CVT and the UVS, among other sources. Focussing on either of these is also possible, of course.
Performance technique. Also referred to as vocal condution. Presentation skills, communication skills, rhetorics, stage fright management – anything that stands between you and satisfied customers/audiences/officials/team members/superiors/externals/etc.
Custom tailored to your personal need as identified in step one, a good mix of these two will equip you with everything you need to prepare or quickly fix your voice.
Step Three: Feedback Cycle
Now you're ready to create your own personal feedback cycle by applying what you learned. By analyzing both success and failure, redefining your goals and solutions as you go, learning more about your voice and its abilities every time.
Through case simulation, we initially prepare ourselves on site for this sometimes challenging but immensely powerful final stage of vocal improvement – before taking your newly acquired vocal skills into the real world and continuing your progress there.
Included Services for Students:
Online Exercises, Recording, and Digital Support
The Vocal Coach offers extra services for students, to make it easier to train and improve in between sessions.
Online Exercises make it easy to continue training. Using either the Vocal Coach website or the SoundCould app, you can sing along to over 90 examples that can be used to train most sounds. Any other exercises are recorded in class and sent to the student.
The students are encouraged to record the sessions for study purposes.
To quickly check if the exercises are done right, or to tackle a vocal issue without having to wait until the next class, students can use the voice clip function of the Whatsapp, Telegram and Signal apps to get direct digital feedback.
Pricing & Booking
The Vocal Coach offers private sessions and group classes.
Private sessions are the most efficient way to improve your voice - tailor adjusted to your specific vocal condition and goals, you’ll get the most out of your time.
Group classes have two advantages: The cost for a longer vocal coaching event is shared, and experiencing vocal solutions for other singers is informative and often inspiring.
