Vocal Coach Singer

My girls love music! They can very easily spend hours a day practicing the piano, ukulele, flute, and saxophone. Sometimes they even argue over who gets to practice piano first. They also love to sing. They sing along to songs at home, in the car, and have sang for church. After piano lessons and band a vocal program was next on our list to try.

We received the download version of the program and it was very simple to download and works very nicely on the computer. I chose this program over Teaching Kid's to Sing because Amber has so much musical ability & I wanted her to be able to really excel with this. I started using this program along with Amber (age  11), Delaney (age 10), and Alaina (age 7). Alaina didn't last long, she couldn't control her laughter while we all practiced breathing and singing "Mee May Mah Moh Moo." I'm really hoping that is because she thought the words were funny & not our singing!

There isn't an exact lesson plan to follow with this program, but listening to the Getting Started CD & then starting with Complete Breathing is recommended. If you like keeping a daily log of what you are doing a Singer's Journal is included.

We started out listening to the Getting Started CD and this gave us a brief overview of the program. Chris Beatty not only tells us what we are to do he also explains why things are important. The first CD to use is the Complete Breathing. In the 23 tracks we are told why it is important to breath correctly and the importance of exercises & correct posture to sing our best. He then sings a selection showing us where we should breath & we sing it after him. The exercises gradually get longer before taking a breath. We are just now finishing up the breathing exercises and are looking forward to moving on & can't wait to see how much we can improve our singing. I have already noticed a difference from using this first CD.

We are now ready to move on to learn how to sing our vowels & consonants, improve our tone, and expand our range. The techniques that are taught in this program will benefit every type of singer as well as improve your speaking. We are also given tips on choosing songs to sing, facial expressions, sound systems, selecting the key, and more.
