- Are you a professional performer but lack confidence with your singing?
- How many doors would be opened if you were a confident singer?
- Are your performing opportunities limited by your lack of singing skills?
Then the “Performers Voice” Programme is for you!
Singing is a skill just like your other skills. Everything you know as a performer will help you as a singer. I’ve worked with loads of actors and dancers who feel limited by their perceived, (and sometimes very real), lack of vocal ability. Together we’ve smashed through their fears and brought out a voice that they can confidently use professionally.
I initially trained as an actress and I understand feeling like your voice isn’t “good enough”. Through work I did with a technical voice teacher I found my voice and I know that I can do that for you too.
You will leave every lesson with a recording of the lesson and of the exercises you need to practice.
We will work on technical exercises that are specific to your needs as a singer. You must work on daily, to train the muscles that control your voice.
These will probably include:
- Breathing techniques
- Learning and singing lots of songs.
- Range building
- Turning off (and occasionally on) nasality
- Tongue stretches (tongue tension is almost always an issue for British people)
- Different sorts of sounds, and getting a sense of what “your” sound is like.
- Different Voice Qualities.
- Acting through song.
- I will record warm ups and cool downs for you to practice with
- We will put together an audition book to support you.
- And …Yes I teach Belting.
You will learn voice care and how to have longevity vocally.
Singing is a muscular activity and with the right support anyone can train their muscles.
I will encourage you to sing in front of other people when you are ready and confident but I will never make you sing in front of other people until you are ready.
“Rebecca is an enthusiastic, energetic, precise and knowledgeable teacher. I am still in the process of training with her but already – after a few short months, my confidence has grown in abundance. Under her guidance I am about to make my debut in a West End Musical. I am incredibly grateful to her.”
