Vocal coaching is a huge part of our multidisciplinary approach at the Voice Care Centre, and is an important missing link between therapy and normal function. In this service, not only are there coaching principles used, but also counselling and psychotherapeutic techniques too, as well as some self guided Manual Therapy.
Technical Voice Coaching
What is Technical Voice Therapy / Coaching?
Our understanding of singing has (mostly) moved away from ‘What muscle does x?’ and into “How is my brain interpreting this command / sound / environment?” Although it may not seem it at first glance, this is an important distinction to make because it stops us worrying about whether we are tilting or retracting etc, and starts us focussing on what might be helpful for your artistic and technical development. The Vocal Coaching at the Voice Care Centre is highly explorative, and somatically focussed, meaning that each session is led via your experience of the coaching rather than the outcome.
8 of 10 singers we see at the Voice Care Centre do not have regular singing lessons but may make their living from singing for hours per week. It is important for the upkeep of your instrument. You don’t need Vocal Coaching every week because specialised coaching can keep you topped up even if it’s once per month.
