It is one thing to sing for minor performances or private parties and get huge appraisals from your amateur audience of 20 to 50 odd people, that too often comprising friends and family, and altogether another thing to be selected for playback singing by a Bollywood music director, director or producer. Almost every aspiring singer in India has that ultimate goal to sing playback for Bollywood. What, in that circumstance, could be better than learning and mastering the art from a celebrated playback singer herself? The mission and main objective of this course are to conduct a journey in which a beginner is transported to an advanced level and more, while an already advanced singer is carried to the highest professional level of playback singing.
For those unaware, as much as any playback singer may get compensated to record for even a hit film, it can never match up to what he/she makes by performing in a single live concert. However, the remuneration of a singer for a live show depends on what market value has been built from his / her released material, with a special edge if that has been for Bollywood. Hence it is imperative to be able to tackle both studios and live singing with equal efficiency. Though it may sound strange to some, the art of rendition in both these types of occasions are very different from one another. The biggest advantage of this course is that it will train one to sing professionally in the soundproofed room of the studio as well as perform brilliantly on stage before an audience of any size.
