ADDING RANGE: Fact or Fantasy?
Can men actually add notes to their range? Absolutely. But not by doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting something different to happen.
Most singers spend years trying to belt out just one more note, and when they hear another singer going into the stratosphere, they assume that the singer was just "born" with that ability. Many of our clients quote their college voice teachers as saying that range can't be extended, and within the same hour, these same clients "find" notes they've never hit before.
Men, say hello to a higher, easier range, with less tension, NO vocal break, and the recognition to prove it.
WHAT IS A "COMMERCIAL" VOICE?
A common challenge for female singers is finding a radio-friendly tone. Instead, “church lady” comes out to play. The voices on the radio sound fresh and commercial, which is totally different from the standard choir singer.
A commercial approach to singing is less concerned with sounding "proper" and more with sounding conversational and sincere. The exercises are different for this kind of training, but it replaces the light, flimsy tone with a strong, powerful voice that commands attention.
Ladies, say hello to a higher, easier range with more power and punch, NO vocal break, and the recognition to prove it.
IT HAPPENED ONCE...
...in the recording studio, and most likely it took several takes to get it "just right". And now that it’s on the record, the audience will expect the same thing, only better, with NO glitches.
Most vocalists record some songs that push their limits. But no one can afford to take those limits with them on tour. Straining for one evening might be easy to get away with, but over and over will bring...DAMAGE.
With the right coaching, pre-show anxiety will disappear, high notes will soar, and careers will have longevity.
RECORDING STUDIO COACHING
Our in-studio coaching is just what it sounds like: we accompany the vocalist to the recording session, providing on-the-spot advice, as well as quick vocal fixes, emergencies, on-site questions or demonstrations, etc.
In this situation, the coach caters solely to the needs of the singer, acting as a translator between the producer and vocalist. Using language and demos that the singer can understand insures a better sound, faster recording time, (saves the voice) and less pressure. Everyone needs a good team with them.
Once it’s on tape, it last forever. Let’s hope it sounds good.
