I’m not a great singer, but I’ve always liked singing. Several of my children sing in church and with a small chorus, but they’ve never really had any vocal teaching. I sang in the choir and a girl’s ensemble when I was in school and there are things I learned that I still use today. I’ve taught the little I know to my children but I’ve always wanted them to have more instruction.
“Vocal Coach Singer is the most complete instructional singing system available with the equivalent of over $2,000 worth of personal coaching time. Whether you are a beginner or a professional, Vocal Coach Singer teaches and builds upon the fundamentals essential to an accomplished singing voice. From posture to performance our tested and proven techniques will help you deliver your songs with consistency and confidence!” Browsing The Vocal Coach website, I don’t have to be a mathematician to know that “$2,000 worth of personal coaching time,” for every Junior High, High School student; and adult in my house, for $99.99 – MP3 format or $119.99 for 12 CD’s and Instructional Guidebook could be an outstanding value if it is what it says it is and does what it says it does.
Vocal Coach Singer includes Training CD’s, Workout CD’s and a CD of printable lead sheets for all of the vocal exercises and printable individual singer’s journal pages; plus an Instructional Guidebook.
My girls have been using this interactive program for several weeks. We set aside an hour or two, two to three times a week, for music class. Using the Training CD’s, they have learned to breathe, how the voice works, proper posture, tone; and pronunciation. They’ve discussed song choice, facial expression, hand gestures and more in the deliverance of an excellent performance. “Learning to sing well is a process,” says Chris & Carole Beatty, the founders of The Vocal Coach. They have taught and coached thousands of singers over the past 40 years.
Whether you are singing or speaking to an audience you’ll find that a good warm-up and cool down of your voice is essential to your delivery. Music Class begins with the daily Work-out CD’s, teaching and practicing the essentials. They also use the printable Work-out Journal pages to record their vocal journey. The Beatty’s believe this makes practice “more systematic and productive.”
The Instructional Guidebook is a full-size, 9 page booklet with clear information and important principles designed to remind and reinforce the material presented in Vocal Coach Singer.
Chris & Carole Beatty make themselves available for questions and assistance with any of their coaching products, through their website. You can contact customer firstname.lastname@example.org or call 615-280-0554.
I have been amazed to see my girls implement what they’re learning by their own initiative. Their posture has improved overall, not just while singing. They enjoy the program and the scientific facts they learn throughout the lessons. They’ve found the format easy to follow and interesting. They’ve said, “The Beatty’s are creative in their approach, and that encourages me to want to do my next lesson.”
So, I can say The Vocal Coach, Vocal Coach Singer is what it says it is and it does what it says it does. It is well worth the investment toward creating better singers and more confident speakers. As always, you can read other reviews by my Crew mates when you click on the banner below.
