vocal coaching for children
ALL SESSIONS ARE AVAILABLE ONLINE
Students are taught correct singing technique in contemporary commercial singing and musical theatre singing - including sound development in belting and mixing singing.
All students are taught vocal anatomy and the physiology of their instrument in a practical and fun way.
Exercises are designed to improve their aural and ear training on an ongoing basis. As the child's ear develops, exercises are modified in order for the singer to continually grow and strengthen their instrument.
Breath and physical exercises increasing breath capacity are incorporated into every singing class, as well as much needed education in learning to incorporate physical support of the voice - suitable for children wishing to dance and sing at the same time.
Repertoire: Age appropriate repertoire is given to each student. Songs are chosen to demonstrate practical application of technique and introduction to dramatic interpretation required in performance.
All students work with the sheet music (provided), to incorporate and educate musical reading and knowledge, critical to any musician.
Special attention and care is taken during puberty to ensure safe vocal transitions in both boys and girls.
VocalCoachSA only enters children who want to enjoy performing into the Kids with Talent SA competition. However, students are welcome to work on pieces, (exams and competitions) entered by schools and other drama institutions during sessions.
Songs are also staged and choreographed on request and all backing tracks are sourced and professionally edited as per competition requirements.
My philosophy in teaching children is to create a fun environment that encourages the children to take risks, make many mistakes and celebrate all their vocal achievements.
