Professional Singing Tuition
Kindred One-to-one Song Presentation classes.
Are you a musical theatre lover and want to get past the fear of hitting the right notes and be able to relax and commit to the acting journey of the song?
Have you always enjoyed singing but want to develop your natural talents?
Do you love singing in a group but want the confidence to sing solo?
Are you preparing for drama school auditions?
Then these classes are for you. Not only will you get vocal coaching, but the main focus will lie on the presentation and performance of the song.
We are offering 45 minute sessions for all ages and abilities, and home tuition is available for your own convenience. Each session will be tailored to the pupil to get the best out of their voice. The material worked on will be chosen by the student and each song will be worked on in detail to a backing track. Areas covered will be integrated into the sessions focusing on the needs of each song choice and will include :
Understanding the journey of the song and choosing appropriate acting and physical choices.
Understanding the workings and mechanisms of the voice.
Work on breath control.
Developing a thorough vocal warm up.
Understanding vocal health.
Exploring and expanding vocal range.
Strengthening head, mix and chest voices.
Application and delivery of vocal qualities such as twang and belt.
Working on a variety of different material and building a wide vocal repertoire.
