Here is a product I believe many of you would like, it is from The Vocal Coach, with Chris and Carole Beatty. They have programs for use in the home that teach singing. Crew members were able to review 2 of their programs, Teaching Kids to Sing ($44.99) or Vocal Coach Singer ($99.99 for downloadable MP3 or $119.99 for the CDs). Since our children sing at churches where my husband preaches I thought this would be a great program for them to use. I have to tell you here at the beginning, we did not make it as far as I had hoped. I received this program before our trip out west and had placed this program on our iPad. As many of you know, our iPad was stolen on our trip, so I was without the lessons.
This would be great for any homeschooler who wants to take voice lessons. Mom and Dad if you purchase these not only will they assist your child in sining, but you can go back to them again and again. I wish we had this years ago when we first went on the road. The children would have loved lessons, but that is sort of hard to arrange when you are constantly changing cities.
Here is what Vocal Coach Singer includes:
7 Training CDs:
- Getting Started
- Complete Breathing
- Complete Warm-Up
- Complete Tone
- Complete Expanding Your Range
- Complete Diction
- Complete Performance
4 Workout CDs:
- Daily Workout High Voice 1 & 2
- Daily Workout Medium/Low Voice 1 & 2
Plus these great educational tools:
- Guidebook – Full-size Instructional Guidebook to Ensure Success
- Printable Lead Sheets – each exercise in our course, plus track lists
- Personal Singer's Journal (Getting Started Journal & Workout Journal) to Track Your Progress
- Vocal Coach Song Evaluation – Evaluation form to enable you to make more intelligent song selections
Vocal Coach Singer will start teaching you with the very basics. Designed for Jr. High to adult, you can adjust this to fit your schedule. Remember though that nothing is accomplished without work. Just purchasing this and listening to the lessons will not improve your sining abilities. You or your child will have to set aside time to practice. You will be taught proper posture, breathing techniques, warm up (who would have thought you needed to warm up your voice first!), and things like expanding your range.
As we were not able to make it as far as I would have liked due to having the iPad stolen, perhaps I can give my neighbors here At the Fence another update after we have progressed more. If you compare the cost of Vocal Coach Singer to voice lessons, I believe you will be able to see the value of this program.
