Students taking this course will be taught one on one by Brian Lucas for an hour each week, for four weeks. As all students will have unique voices and vocal problems to address, Brian will also teach in a unique and individualized manner. By working closely with the student, Brian will be able to diagnose the exact vocal issues and create customized plans to help the student to correct these.
The majority of vocal issues that Brian has encountered have been due to overuse or sustained abuse of the vocal cords over time. Working alongside the student, Brian will be able to help them to produce vocal sounds in a much more effective and healthier way, no matter how extreme the singing, or how a student uses their voice.
