Vocal Training

Matthew Quek Vocal Studios

This is the lesson plan I adopt for all my students and it has yielded good results all these years I have been teaching. In all, it should be about ten lessons or more and there should be visible results. Students must be able to perform solo and in a group before graduation and certification.

Lesson 2: Breathing techniques- what it means to really use proper diaphragmatic support (1hr)

Note: Students will have assignments for homework and revision for most lessons

Level 2

Lesson 5: Proper and natural Vocal placement (1hr)
Lesson 6: Tonal focus (1hr)

Level 3

Lesson 7: Resonance- how to utilize for different effects and putting it all together (1hr)
Lesson 8: Imagery- Singing is 90% mental and is in the mind. Muscles correspond with what the mind tells it to do (1hr)

Level 4

Lesson 9: Singing technique combos (1hr)

  •  How to utilize diaphragmatic support, with facial muscles and imagery, putting it all together

Lesson 10: Body language, stage craft, how to use the eyes in communication (1hr)
