Coaching Packages Available
"I always feel vocally refreshed here. Love it!" (Brooke Shearer - Singer/Songwriter)
Vocal Foundations offer two great packages designed to get the best out of singer-songwriters and vocalists. Check them out below.
Train in person or via video online.

MOST POPULAR!!
1. Vocal / Singing Technique Coaching​​

The Perfect solution for vocalists wanting to develop their technical skills. 
Each monthly package includes 4x 45 minute weekly one-on-one coaching developing your:

-> understanding of how the voice works and moves. Moving away from relying on imagery for development, here we will explore the "ins and outs" of the larynx, its parts and how you can control it. After all, it is your instrument and you probably want to learn how to play it. Sound scary or complicated? It isn't!

-> ability to deliver long lasting, safe and reliable techniques. Stop losing your voice! The only wrong in singing is "pain". Understand what causes your voice to fatigue and develop skills to build a reliable, healthy vocal delivery.

-> voice projection and intensity. Driving your airflow DOES NOT project your voice! You can not blow air at the speed of sound. This will most likely result in fatigue and loss of voice. Learn how to project your voice and create intensity by understanding and developing parts of your instrument that do exactly that!

-> application of varying voice qualities (tone/dynamics) for your specific needs. You've heard the terms Belting, Opera, Legit, Pop, Rock, Jazz haven't you? What are they? These examples are the finished product. Learn the "ingredient skills" that make up the voice quality and tone you desire.

-> technical application to your songs. This is the fun and creative part. The skills you have learned are like the varying paint brushes to your artwork. Start applying your technical skills to your performances.

-> continued self-practice with weekly customised learning plans​​. After each session I provide you via email your customised training plan with a detailed description of the areas of practice and focus for the week and the long term future. 

The first place to start is by contacting vocal coach Greg van Bergen. from there we can set up an appointment time to have an in person conversation at Vocal Foundations to see how we can work together. This is a 30 minute FREE appointment where we can get to know each other a little, and can establish if my coaching will be suited to you before we take the plunge into our first month of weekly vocal coaching.

I do this with all my new clients! It's the best way to answer your questions and get to know you and your goals for your voice. See that button below... THAT'S WHERE WE CAN GET STARTED!
