we start by introducing foundational principles one at a time. Starting with these 'big picture' ideas, the student has a better footing to build their musical understanding upon.
The student and teacher explore each principle in depth together. This allows the student to develop connections and retain the information in a unique and personal way.
As more and more of these foundation principles are presented and fully explored, the student begins to combine the various ideas together to understand the full picture of music.
Traditional classical voice lessons focus on developing proper technique. The three main areas of focus are breath control (diaphragm control), placement (proper resonance), and vowel articulation. Classical voice technique permits the singer to sing loudly and clearly.
Modern vocal lessons focus on developing the singer's 'natural voice'. The goal is to sing with the same tone and articulation as one speaks with. Done correctly, this method prevents vocal damage, expands vocal range, and highlights the unique qualities of each singer's voice.
After studying with the very best in both classical and pop vocals, John Paul has developed his own unique teaching method which turns beginner singers into pros in as little as two years. The Beginner to Pro voice curriculum combines the best of both classical and pop vocal techniques to form a unified method. Each of the 100 voice principles builds upon the last to create a rock-solid vocal foundation.
