These lessons consist of vocal exercises using the Connected Voice Technique, the Scientific Approach to Singing. Using this technique, students will learn the healthy way of singing and will understand the anatomy of their voice and how it works. Each exercise is specifically designed for the purpose of training the vocal chords to learn the technique. Using this technique, students will achieve an increase in vocal range and tonality, understand proper breathing for singers, and most importantly, understand their chest and mix voice and learn how to bridge the gap between the two, creating a stronger, healthier mix voice. Using the Connected Voice Technique enables singers to be able to sing any style of song, including Broadway, Pop, Rock, Jazz, and Country. Students will see improvement in their voice when using this technique, coupled with practice and dedication.
