Performers Coaching

Singing, Voice and Performance Coaching 

Performing is a multifaceted art form that involves the use of the human voice to communicate a story to the audience. It is a skill that combines technical proficiency with emotional expression, making it both challenging and rewarding for those who pursue it.

Singing and Vocal coaching plays a crucial role in honing and developing performers abilities, helping them to improve their vocal technique, expand their vocal range, and enhance their performance skills.

 

At its core, vocal performance involves controlling the breath, manipulating the vocal cords, and resonating spaces and therefore, the sound, within the body. A skilled performer can shape these elements to produce a wide range of tones, dynamics, and vocal effects to convey complex emotive subjects. However, mastering these techniques requires dedicated practice and continued guidance from experienced vocal coaches.

 

Coaching encompasses a variety of exercises and techniques designed to strengthen the voice and improve vocal control whilst allowing open and free expression. These may include breathing exercises to develop the body-voice connection, breath support (pressure and flow), vocal warm-ups to prepare the body and voice for singing, cool downs to reset the voice and body after performing, and exercises to improve stamina, accuracy, strength, and flexibility. Additionally, vocal coaches work with singers to develop their interpretation of songs with text and character work, helping them to convey truthful storytelling, emotion and connect with their audience.

 

Working with the voice in an Elite manner is a complex and rewarding art form that requires dedication, skill, and ongoing training. Vocal coaching plays a crucial role in helping performers develop their technique, expand their repertoire, and unlock their full vocal potential. By exploring the principles and techniques of singing and voice coaching, performers can continue to grow and evolve as artists.

 

 

Vocal coaches also emphasize proper vocal health and technique, reducing the risk of strain or injury during performances. By promoting healthy vocal habits and teaching effective warm-up and cooldown routines, coaches help performers maintain vocal longevity and sustain their expressive potential over time. They can often be the first person to notice voice change in their students and are a key part in starting the ‘referral process’ to ENT for Endoscopy.

 

Vocal coaches can also work alongside your Vocal Rehabilitation Coach, Speech and Language Therapist or ENT Post Clinical input, depending on the outcome.
