Course Summary

Here is an opportunity for intermediate-level students who have learned the basics of voice training techniques in Western Music. By now they have learned to appreciate the importance of mouth positions and the support system that the body provides at the time of singing. In the music classes for the intermediate course, these concepts and practices will be reinforced once again.

The next step is to focus on developing our mix voice and head voice. It is ideal to have one voice as opposed to having a chest voice, a mix voice, and a head voice. These three aspects are no longer seen as three different things. Rather, the voice should be versatile and capable of rendering any kind of song. Though it might sound difficult, this intermediate course will make learning fun.

About the Course

The course is designed for intermediate-level students. It will feature exercises that help to work more on the mixed register and head registers, along with exercises that reinforce the concept of resonance. It is a good thing to have nasal resonance as opposed to nasality. Also, the vowels should be placed in the nasal and head resonance. 

These apart, the highlights of this course include - riffs, runs, the concepts of vibrato, etc. The students will learn about Vibratol and try to incorporate it into songs, and/ or in any appropriate places. 

Gradually, songs would be introduced at the intermediate level. The students will start applying the above techniques to add their twists to the songs.
