The Contemporary Vocal Studio is designed to further develop the skills of vocal students. This class is for students who have intermediate to advanced singing experience that they would like to develop in more detail. The class is designed to strengthen and refine students vocal and performance skills and to assist singers in developing their own sound, equipping them with the skills to get the best out of their voices. Students will experience a range of styles including pop, jazz, blues and soul music. This class can be taken multiple times, allowing students to continue developing their skills and confidence with each class. Students who have completed the course a few times may be invited to take part in an advanced performance class.

Entry level: This course is suitable for intermediate to advanced singers with previous vocal training.

Students will have the opportunity to sing individually with Jo in order to focus on the areas that are most important to each student’s individual development. These individual workshops will culminate with two performances throughout the term after which students will receive direct feedback from Jo so that they can continue to develop and refine their performance skills.

Students will explore:

Vocal exercises to expand their range, strengthen the voice & build stamina
Advanced breathing and support
Registration and resonance
Advanced Voice Science & Anatomy
Honing your own sound and vocal tone
When and how to practise and how to problem solve
Understanding style – How to sing different styles of music
Ear training and harmony skills
Basic improvisation and vocal effects
This is a friendly and safe environment for students to explore their own voices whilst learning to develop their sound.

NOTE: Students are expected to bring 3 to 4 songs to the first class (sheet music not required). Jo will help each student pick TWO songs which they will work on from those options.
