The course last for 6 weeks, and you will have 6 x 1-hour online sessions with Ria. which will be recorded so that you can go back and review information whenever you wish. In between lessons, you will be expected to practise. The course is suitable for both vocalists and teachers and is all about getting the voice perfectly set up for training and development. Teacher Certification is also possible if required but will require an extra two weeks of study and additional fees.
"Setting Up the Voice" from the Ultimate Vocals series comes with an extensive course book to enable easy revision and recollection of the material, and each of your online sessions will be recorded so that you don't miss out on things that you want to revise!
The key thing about this course is that is helps you to push the 'factory reset' on your voice (or your students' voices) and creates optimum conditions in which you can then build and develop vocal skills naturally. This works equally well whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced vocalist who may have acquired some less-than-helpful habits along the way. This is all about vocal freedom - because when the voice is free, you will be amazed at what you can achieve!
