SINGING LESSONS AT OUR NUMEROUS MELBOURNE STUDIOS.
Vox Singing Academy‘s private singing tuition, vocal coaching and tailored lesson plans will cover the following activities, exercises and foundations to improve your voice and help you become the very best singer possible.
During your lessons you and your teacher will work through and meticulously break down songs of the student’s choice. Our singing teachers will apply the techniques that you learn from your customised vocal scales directly into your songs. This is similar to a developing a professional football player who will directly apply the skills they learn during training sessions into the game on match day! We provide you with detail instruction and notes on your lyrical sheet for the desired song you are singing, so you can follow our teachers instruction to practice correctly at home. At the teachers request, you will be required to bring your song choice back the following week to be reviewed by the teacher. This is where you will hopefully see improvement and sing to the best of your ability after reviewing the instruction and notes documented on your lyric sheet.
Your teacher will look out for opportunities to improve your voice and will continue to coach you through the process of continual vocal improvement. We can help you work on any cover songs, original songs and compositions during your singing lessons. The choice is yours!
Your Scales Workout
As a part of our vocal coaching and training, scales are essential part of improving and strengthening your voice and vocal skills. At VOX we have carefully tested and developed thousands of original scales that we guarantee will improve your voice. We understand that a one size fits all approach does not work as very singer is an individual and ever singer is at a different skill level. We do not use generic scales nor do we give the same scales to every student. Each singer and musical genre requires a different approach as does every voice. And as you improve your teachers will provide more difficult scales to ensure that you continually improving and challenge yourself.
We have more than 10,000 different vocal scales and exercises so you can be confident that your scales are truly customised to make you the best singer possible as quickly as we possibly can you. We pride ourselves on understanding what it is each individual singer requires and tailoring our lessons plans to your vocal ability, requirements, genre of music and personal needs. During your lessons with us we will continually guide and provide you you with new scales, assess your improvements and regularly test your development. Once your singing teacher feels that you have perfected each scale given, we will then advance you to other vocal techniques and record further scales and exercises for you to practice at home.
All scales are customised and tailored for every students personal needs, range, ability and music genre.
You will also learn pitch and ear training development exercises to ensure you are singing the right notes all the time. We will correctly guide your mouth and tongue placements of all five primary vowels – this will ensure you get the very best sounds with correct articulation, pronunciation and diction when you sing.
Correct diaphragmatic support and breathing exercises will be given to all students. Your diaphragm is the engine room when singing. All your power, strength, projection, holding, support, vibrato, stamina and control ALL comes with proper diaphragmatic support and breathing. At Vox Singing Academy will teach you how to correctly use your diaphragm for maximum vocal benefit.
We will also work on V.B.C. (Vocal Breath Control) which is an advanced breathing technique invented by owner and director Peter Vox himself. As you learn how to breathe properly through the diaphragm and abdominal area (The ‘V’ in the ribs), this breathing technique will enable you to control your vocal power as well as give you vocal strength and stamina to fully support every note you sing.
Breathing is a very important and essential part of becoming a great singer. If you use too much air your voice will sound thin and airy. If you don’t use enough air you will not be able to support the note at the right pitch, and you will fall off the note and sound flat.
Keeping time and rhythm to a song is also very important. We have specifically designed exercises to improve your timing and rhythm if you are having trouble with this element of singing.
