About the Course

The Italian school of vocal pedagogy is the best when it comes to voice training. The outcome will be evident in the voice of the student. Sight singing and being able to read notes and understanding rhythm are important here. At this stage, the students will learn to train their voices in the Western Classical music way. Even if this style isn't what the student sings traditionally, it can help them when it comes to perfecting the vocal techniques.

After reaching this level, the students should work on strengthening the voice even more, working on the tone, working on agility some more (which is not so easy), and being able to control the volume, etc. With consistent practice, the student will begin to see a huge difference in their voice texture and tone. The primary focus of this course will be on - tone and agility. Equal emphasis will be given to strengthening the falsetto/ head voice and making it stronger.
