3.EMOTIONALLY-Music unites people. Singing is our birthright. Music and Song have been used across the globe for centuries to communicate peoples history, tell stories, express love, sadness and every emotion we humans experience. Many cultures across the generations have used singing for rituals, celebrations, whilst working and for funerals. It's such a creative and expressive way to let our feelings out and helps us to connect with others. Singing can help increase one's confidence as well!

LESSONS TAILORED TO YOUR NEEDS
The initial session will assess your current vocal ability, address any specific problems and set out a plan of how to obtain your personal goals. Whether you simply want to learn to sing in tune, or be brave enough to try karaoke for the first time, perhaps even sing lead vocals in a show or a band Maria can help you. You will learn how your body can support your voice and how to use it properly to achieve a more resonant and powerful sound by developing various techniques. Together, you will explore different genres of music across the decades (unless you prefer singing one specific style) to developing your vocal versatility, performance ability and microphone technique.
We have a vast variety of backing tracks in all genres and can offer you the opportunity to record yourself singing so you'll have a demo of your vocals. Great for auditions, personal memorabilia or as a comparison of how you sound at the start to when you finish singing tuition.
AUDITION PREP & EXAMS OFFERED
For those who have audition coming up, we can provide one off audition prep sessions as opposed to regular weekly, fortnightly or monthly tutoring. We also offer the opportunity to take graded singing exams in both Pop Vocal or Musical Theatre. (grades 1-8 within various leading examining boards; L.C.M-London College of Music, Trinity and Rock school).
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
Vocal health and how to maintain it is one of the most important and early sessions alongside how to warm up your body and voice properly and safely. You will have your vocal range tested and re-tested at a later stage. You'll learn how to reach those higher notes with ease and more power as well as how to hold longer notes and add 'timbres' (sound effects). Maria will teach you better breath control so that you will learn how to control your sound production better, how to do impressive vocal gymnastics and perform a song convincingly amongst many other things which will be revealed during the sessions. You will learn how to master many singing techniques and gain more vocal control, working at your own pace before moving onto more developed training.
