School of Rock (Google Review 2019)
Amanda's Areas of teaching emphasis:
* Overall strengthening and building of vocal technique and attention to vocal health
* Connecting dancers to vocal technique
* Understanding and managing audition and performance anxiety
* Understanding of the "belt" and "head" registers, and learning to use both with maximum effectiveness
* Creating true "triple threat" competitive musical theatre performers
* Audition preparation technique
The 1st Lesson:
* We will start with a short discussion of your past singing experience and future goals
* Then we will start with the basics; breathing, alignment and posture
* We will then move on to exercises that strengthen your vocal muscles
* We will end the lesson working on a song of your choice
Bring your music, or find something on Youtube/Spotify to work on
* Bring a water bottle to keep your throat hydrated during the lesson
* If you have an iPhone or tape recorder of some kind to record your voice bring it, so you can listen to your lessons and track your progress
* Lessons can be 30 minutes to 1 hour. Your voice will need a rest after an hour of use
I look forward to working with you, and helping you take your voice to the next level!
