About the Course

While doing this course, the students will start observing a huge difference in their voices. They will gain a proper understanding of how to improve their voice quality and ways to preserve their voice. As a part of the vocal training routine, the students will be introduced to vocal warm-ups, each intended for a specific purpose (for example, exercises that help use the right muscle groups while singing, exercises to help improve tone, exercises to build nasal resonance, understanding the concept of space and mouth positions, etc). The students will also undergo routines that will help students to prevent straining their voices. The students will also be advised about the right kind of diet before and after performances and practice sessions. It will help them to keep their voice in a proper shape. The course will also train the students on how to prep themselves for the stage before a performance.

The key takeaway of this course is developing the proper practices and making them a lifelong habit. It will make sure that the students do not need to take recourse to any last-minute quick fixes before the performances. It's a steady, goal-oriented process that focuses completely on vocal health and well-being.
