Lessons

The Technique


The London Voice Academy teach an excellent technique based on the principles of Speech Level Singing. This revolutionary method allows singers to sing in a healthy, relaxed and connected voice with no breaks or flips. With the use of specialist vocal exercises we will work with you to ensure you sing freely throughout your range including those sometimes difficult bridges. Any muscular tension will be eliminated and the result will be a healthy connected voice.



Consultations


For all new clients a consultation lesson is required. Consultations are very relaxed and informal. You will be asked to sing a few exercises with myself at the piano and then any song of your choice (if you have a backing track to accompany yourself please bring this with). At the end of the session an informed analysis of the voice is given, explaining the reason behind any vocal problems and how they can be improved.

This initial session gives me an opportunity to meet you and discuss your future goals and ambitions. It should also put you at total ease and get rid of any unnecessary nerves prior to your first lesson.

Vocal Lessons


Lessons are split into two parts. The first will be spent at the piano where you will focus on improving and strengthening your voice through specially devised exercises. The second part will be application to song.

In preparation for a gig, showcase or audition, specialist performance lessons can be booked. These lessons will include song analysis, performance skills, how to eliminate nerves and use any unwanted ones to your advantage and microphone technique.

Lessons are normally 1 hour in length but can also be booked for 30 or 45 minute sessions. I teach all styles and genres of music.

Songwriting Lessons


In addition to singing lessons I also teach songwriting.

Songwriting is a great way to express your feelings and is unbelievably therapeutic. Many client’s who have never even written a verse to a song before, have left the studio after a writing session pleasantly surprised.

Trust me when I say there is a lyricist in all of us! Full songs are normally completed in 4 to 5 sessions which can then be taken into a recording studio and produced by one of our team.

Whether it is to launch your career or simply a song to perform at a special occasion i.e a wedding or birthday.. hearing your completed composition is a truly magical and rewarding achievement.

Speech Therapy


Many clients come to The London Voice Academy for help with mild to moderate speech disorders. These disorders include:-

  • STUTTERING / STAMMERING - Where the flow of speech is disrupted by unwanted repetitions and prolongations of sounds, syllables, words or phrases. It is also common to hear unwanted silent pauses or blocks in which the stutterer is unable to produce sounds.
  • SPEECH SOUND DISORDERS - Where there is difficulty in producing specific speech sounds, most often certain consonants, such as “S” or “R” .
  • VOICE DISORDERS – Physical impairments that involve the function of the larynx or vocal resonance.

Through specially devised singing exercises our clients have achieved outstanding results.
