Vocal Training

Your True VoiceTM Vocal Training

Through a series of vocal exercises and techniques, students will begin to find their voice, that which makes them uniquely who they are. Training your voice parallels your emotional clarity; as emotional barriers dissolve, authenticity emerges. Joy, your natural state, amplifies as your true voice surfaces, aligning with your genuine self both emotionally and vocally.

    • Help young people find their true and natural voice
    • They become more confident, grounded, self-assured in who they truly are
Journaling

Songwriting & Recording

Students will learn to write lyrics to uplifting songs. They will also learn the basic structure of songwriting. Students will apply these skills as they write an original song, which they will then record.

Dancing

Dance/Movement

Students will learn dance movements to interpret songs for performance, enhancing rhythm and expression.

    • Help students be more confident in their skin and comfortable in who they are
    • Find their rhythm and flow
    • Eliminate awkwardness in their walk and movement
Acting

Acting

Students will learn acting exercises and games that will help them to be more comfortable being vulnerable and authentic in front of a camera or on stage. They will then apply that learning to singing, enabling them to vocally express themselves from the heart without fear.

    • Help students be more authentic
    • Come from a genuine place and a comfortable place when acting or performing, which helps eliminate insecurity.
Stage Fright

Stage Fright

Students will learn to overcome stage fright through activities that will enable them to be calm, to release negativity, and to be more focused and creative. This will enhance their performance skills in music and in life. The stage fright workshops will include motivational speakers.

    • Help students get rid of nervous tension
    • Help students to perform
    • Come outside of the box
Transformation

Emotional Integration

Students will learn to find solutions to their own problems through an emotional clearing process. Journaling, vision-boarding, and emotional clearing will support the students in the songwriting process as well.

    • Help students take time out to listen to that positive voice from within that guides them to do good and progress positively.

Performers who have developed some of these positive skills are now confident and moving positively forward. They have overcome fears and negative emotion and have replace them with faith, love, and joy. These are the ingredients for confidence as one becomes confident in who they are. Joy and happiness is your natural state
