Make no mistake. The singing voice is a musical instrument.
It is also the most complex musical instrument there is.
Until we understand how an instrument works and what all the controls actually do, and how to use them, our ability to play that instrument will always be restricted.
Yes, there are some who are naturally gifted, but most of us have to explore and learn how our singing voice works. This is not an easy task, as there are many “controls” that need to be mastered and used together to create your unique singing voice.
With the voice, the control issue is also compounded because most of the controls cannot be seen, unlike, say: a guitar or piano where we can see the strings, neck, frets, keys and peddles etc.
Using songs that you want to sing:
I will show you the controls and how to use them; and how to use them in conjunction with each other to enable development in tonal quality, projection, pitching etc.
As you develop in these areas you will start to develop your own singing voice and style - that is all part of the evolutionary process of learning to sing.
Song based teaching allows for an issue to be identified in its proper context.
This allows for that issue to be understood and tackled at the time it is happening.
The analysis of an issue and the reasons as to why it is happening can vary depending on other surrounding aspects within the song;
Therefore song based teaching is the ideal way to identify and rectify vocal issues. It enables you to bring everything together in a natural way.
