ONLINE: ONE to ONE Vocal/Singing Technical Training
How I train singers and vocalists online?
   "Greg is a fantastic teacher who explains the physiology of what we are trying to achieve without any of the nonsense, making it easy to recognise what I need to be concentrating on." 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  (Gordon Gill - Singer / Guitarist / Performer) .   

For a very long time I believed the only way to work with singers and their voices was to do it in person. But in this busy day and age, I find more and more people are moving towards receiving their vocal training online though video calling / conferencing. And I have too and honestly, I think it’s great. Web platforms such as Skype, Zoom or FaceTime allow me to interact with singers and songwriters all over the world. So how does it work and how can you benefit from this kind of training?

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

-> Artist, teacher and performer mentoring is an included part of your technical training package!

How does it work online with video?
Honestly, it’s very similar to how I work one on one in person at my practice at Vocal Foundations, the only difference is that I’m still here in the same location in Sth. East Melbourne and you are somewhere else in the world. ​

Firstly, I begin with a 30-minute conversation with all new clients to help establish what are your needs and to establish if my coaching will be suited to you. This initial conversation is FREE. It has to be! 
This is also a great way to discover whether your internet connection speed is capable of what is required. I suggest a minimum of 5mb/sec (ADSL2 or higher), but this isn’t always the case.
This appointment (and all future appointments) are booked though my online calendar scheduling.
From there, I offer monthly packages of
4 weekly sessions that are 45 minutes in length where we get to explore the ins and outs of your voice online. Like all my lessons whether they are online or in person, learning and mastering changes is my main objective. After each session I email a detailed and personalised vocal training plan for you to continue your training when I’m not around. 
Ok! Let’s get started. You can schedule in your
30-minute FREE conversation with me below. If you would like to know more, follow the links to view my credentials and reviews. I look forward to meeting you soon.
