Actor, Singer, Songwriter, Composer, Vocal Coach
A Vocal Coach is part of a production’s Creative Team and works closely with performers to help liberate them.
- Text / Diction
- Taking the Stage
- Sound Equipment
- Recording in the Studio
- Starting a Run or Going on Tour
Also, to help with various Vocal Challenges:
- Musical Style
- Vocal Technique
- Effective Delivery
Vocal Coaching Sessions are done in Groups or One-on-One.
Groups are formulated with like-minded individuals, working toward a similar goal.
The Group format can be a Seminar, Workshop, or Masterclass.
- One-on-One Coaching is pretty straightforward. The Coach and the Talent work together (unless the Talent is underaged, in which case an adult guardian must be present).
However, thanks to technology and Video Calling, One-on-One can be done In-Person or via Distant Coaching.
- In-Person is a fundamental coaching tool. The Vocal Coach can assess the Talent and guide adjusting posture and using exercises from various techniques to best help and guide the performer.
- Distant Coaching is an amazing tool for last-minute coaching or when away or on the road. It’s important to have in-person sessions because those will create a bond of trust as well as a Communication Channel between the Talent and the Vocal Coach.
Master Classes are more Technical and with a “hands-on” approach. Participants are Performers or Audiences.
- Performers prepare (and submit beforehand) a few pieces they would like to work on with the Coach.
- Audiences can take notes and in the end ask Questions.
Masterclasses can be done on Contemporary Singing, Musical Theatre, Public Speaking, Greek Vocalizing, etc.
Seminars & Workshops
- Seminars usually run for a few days and focus – unless specifically requested – on General Vocal Challenges and Solutions. Seminars have no limit in the number of participants.
- Workshops are held with a small number of participants (6-12) and can last from a few days to a number of weeks depending on the group level and the goals.
