Lesson Approach

The House of Voice helps you get from where you are, to where you want to be.

How Lessons Proceed

Drawing up the vocal plan

HOV has a specialised goal program, helping you to hone your vocal goals (could be to sing in NY, could be to sing for yourself and enjoy it fully)  according to where you are currently. Goals are set in the areas of vocal development, mindset outcomes, artist development and performance

Laying the Foundations

This involves clearing your vocal of any unwanted habits and laying down secure foundations of air and vocal technique. Integrating the necessary technical structures to keep the voice stable

Building the Voice

Evolving your voice to it’s greatest potential which is a unique journey for each singer at HOV. Involves learning about things such as vocal placement, resonance, larynx function and execution through variety of vocal analogies, visualisations, body mapping and awareness exercises unique to training at HOV

Other Areas of Focus

  • Anatomy of the body relevant to singing and the vocal process (there is so much you may not have ever realised you could know and improve here)
  • How to integrate visualisation techniques
  • Making complex vocal training beginner to advanced technique accessible, easy and fun to understand and work with.
  • Increase your understanding of your body specifically in singing so that you can make better vocal choices.
  • Teaching you to teach yourself, rather than always being at the mercy of outside assessment
  • Awareness training
  • What individual patterns and vocal habits exist in your body that are influencing your singing
  • Which muscles have direct relationships that can influence your singing
  • The right vocal lessons to apply this knowledge to advance your vocal skills easily and effectively
  • How neurological and scientific advancements in vocal lessons and training can change your voice

What HOV Students Will Learn

  • Learning to operate in a new vocal space: Which includes operating all the muscle groups required in singing and getting them to work together efficiently and effectively.

  • Enhancing your vocal: including vocal tricks, developing resonance further, stylistic tools required, polishing, improving vocal agility and developing what’s unique in your voice
  • Adding additional features to create the artist: Music theory, song-writing evaluations, stagecraft, acting and music business knowledge
  • Presenting your vocal: includes honing performance as an artist/singer and presenting to an audience through a variety of HOV opportunities or your own gigs/musicals/performances or tours.

What’s important to HOV

It is important to HOV that students have a great understanding of their instrument.

The only way this can be achieved is through vocal lessons and education centred around a singers individual instrument.

HOV students learn about the body, the key muscle groups in singing, what their individual habitual makeup is, awareness and aquainting yourself with these muscles, learning how programmed relationships in the body can influence sound, the recognition and retraining of the mind to better influence sound and any blocks getting in the way of our vocal success.

Understanding the Body

With extensive education in vocal anatomy and pedagogy, HOV provides vocalists the opportunity to gain skills both as a singer and as a musician, whilst improving technique and artistry.

HOV maintains a fun, holistic and interactive approach to vocal training, educating students in vocal anatomy, awareness training, the body and how it can efficiently produce sound without strain/effort with techniques to promote good vocal health, efficiency and stamina.

Straying from the one size fits all approach, HOV has a strong emphasis on the individual, focusing on singer’s key strengths, eliminating inefficient habitual vocal patterns and developing individual programs to set vocalists on the path to becoming their best!
