Course Details

Judy will begin her 12-week course by assessing the student's vocal strengths and weaknesses to get a gauge of where improvements, if any, can be made. This assessment will help her to identify and teach each individual student a specific technique or group of techniques that will help correct any weakness and optimize their vocal abilities. These techniques are designed to conquer these issues for good and maximize not just the mechanical aspects of your singing but also the artistic concerns. Topics Judy will address with students include breath, breathing, opening the throat, and better communication techniques which will enable them to perform at their peak level. Judy will also utilize student's anatomy, some imagery, and vocal exercises to help them to understand exactly why and how these techniques they are learning will help to improve their abilities. Beginning with a student's immediate vocal ability, Judy will also identify and help them to stop any vocally abusive habits they have and start to learn how to protect the health of their voice. This course also includes specific training for the recording studios as well as on a live stage. Students should have some vocal recording studio or live stage experience.

Studying and applying this course will improve your voice in the following ways- (1) You'll learn how your voice works and why you want to do certain things; how you can assist your voice and how to free it from tension; (2) You will learn to use your breath power so efficiently that you never experience vocal strain, even from long shows; (3) You will gain richer resonance and more tone options for expression; (4) You'll learn how to completely mend unwanted breaks; (5) You will gain precise control of pitch, volume, vibrato and rhythm; (6) You'll learn style nuances and vocal licks that enhance your delivery; (7) You'll learn to phrase more communicatively and enunciate more clearly in ways that fit your genre; (8) You will learn how to perform authentically, much like a great actor going into character for each song; (9) You'll learn how to channel your mind/body/voice into laser beam focus.

(10) You'll learn what to do with your hands when you perform; (11) You will learn mic technique to maximize your vocal control; (12) You'll find out how to wear/hold/play your instrument in ways that increase your vocal ability instead of sabotage it; (13) You'll get incredibly effective studio vocal techniques to perform the best studio vocals of your life; (14) You'll learn techniques for dynamic stage performance and stage presence; (15) I will teach you vocal exercises targeted to your specific needs to help you maintain and internalize the new vocal techniques you need; (16) You'll also get a short warmup routine you can do when you're pressed for time or in between sets; (17) You'll get help singing the songs you want to - including help with choosing keys and tempos; (18) You will get help with whatever your particular vocal issues or goals may be.

FAQs

Question
If I am already professionally singing on stage and/or in the studio, how can further training help me?
Answer
The more important your voice, the more important this training will be to you for two main reasons: You will further improve your voice and make it even more valuable. You will also protect your voice from career-stopping fatigue, strain and damage. You are a vocal athlete, and like all athletes you need a coach to maintain, maximize and protect your most valuable asset... your voice!
Question
Can you help with stage fright?
Answer
Absolutely. I borrow from acting techniques and psychological factors of communication to help focus your mind into single-minded confidence, on stage and in the studio.
Question
Will your training help me sing longer shows and protect my voice from its own success?
Answer
Oh yes! After applying the techniques you'll learn in this course, you may get physically tired and hungry after a long show, but not vocally strained! I'll teach you how to survive a road gig with a healthy voice, and how to nurture your voice between multiple sets and shows.
Question
Can you teach me how to be as good in the studio as I am live? (Or vice versa?)
Answer
That is one of my specialties. There are reasons that you find it hard to sing in the place you have the least experience. I'll help you take your vocal magic from your most familiar venue to your least familiar.
Question
Can your training make me a star?
Answer
The short answer is no. I can help you sing as well or better than many who are quite successful singers.
Please understand that no matter how well you sing or how well you improve your voice, no one can guarantee that you will succeed at a vocal career. For that, you have to develop an audience large enough to buy your recordings and show tickets. To make it in the music business you have to be great at music AND business! BUT... for a shot at a vocal career, the voice is the primary asset you would have. So maximize and protect it with this training!
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.
