Course Details

In each lesson, Marquita Waters will explain how the voice and muscles are working and applying these explanations to the voice work and exercises completed. Exercises and techniques that are undertaken in the lessons will be practised while Marquita helps the student to breathe correctly, to strengthen and support notes without straining the voice while also aiding in strengthening the vocal muscles. Students will work on songs of their choosing and Marquita will help them to identify any problem areas such as pitch, tone, volume, strength and anything else which may occur while singing.

Students will work with Marquita at their own pace and can ask any, and all, questions during these sessions. Students can also query specifics in each song they sing with her; if a part is too difficult to sing, Marquita will show them how to do it and then give them exact exercises which will guide the student, making these parts easier for them to sing.

The ipassio Edge

Students enrolling for this course on ipassio can be sure that they receive individual attention from the teacher, as the class strength is limited to 1 or 2 students. It also gives teachers the opportunity, to gauge their students progress in depth and make changes whenever and wherever required, to ensure the student gets the maximum out of this course. Since this course is detailed, students get the advantage of learning intricate details about this art form. The limited strength of the class also ensures that there is a strong bond between the students and their teacher clearing out any inhibitions that the student might have. The sustained guidance available from the teacher ensures that the student does not deviate from set goals or targets. Learning from a revered, experienced exponent of this art form, through the long duration of this course, keeps the student inspired and motivated to achieve more.

Prerequites

 Marquita can help students from the ages of 15 to 40, who are at any level between professional and beginner. All that is required is that the student is willing to practice the exercises in their own time to improve throughout the course.

FAQs

Question
How much time should a student enrolling for this course practice everyday?
Answer
This course will require practice time outside of lessons. Time spent practicing may vary from 15 minutes per day to an hour, depending on a student’s level of interest. Students who wish to become professional musicians will need more hours of practice per day using a different set of exercises and materials than students who are seeking to learn music as a hobby. Detailed structure of practice for each student will be discussed and explained during class.
Question
What if a student is unable to attend an upcoming class?
Answer
The student is required to inform the teacher about his absence from a particular session, two days prior to the class. In such a case, the teacher will reschedule the class and conduct the rescheduled class on or before the end (i.e. Saturday) of the ensuing week or such other time as may be mutually decided between the teacher and the student. In case the student misses to give two days prior notice about his absence to the teacher, then the decision to conduct another class for that student is completely based on teacher’s discretion.
Question
What if the teacher wishes to reschedule a class?
Answer
In case the teacher is unavailable for the scheduled class, he/she will inform the students two days prior to the class. The teacher will conduct the rescheduled class on or before the end (i.e. Saturday) of the ensuing week or such other time as may be mutually decided between the teacher and the student.
Question
How long will the teacher take to revert to a query raised after class hours?
Answer
Students should get a response within 24 hours if the teacher is not preoccupied or travelling.
