A Voice Lesson is the study of the art and science of voice instruction. It is used in the teaching of singing and assists in defining what singing is, how singing works, and how proper singing technique is accomplished.
Vocal pedagogy covers a broad range of aspects of singing, ranging from the physiological process of vocal production to the artistic aspects of interpretation of songs from different genres or historical eras.
Typical areas of study include:
Human anatomy and physiology as it relates to the physical process of singing.
Breathing and air support for singing
Posture for singing
Vocal resonation or voice projection
Diction, vowels and articulation
Sostenuto and legato for singing
Other singing elements, such as range extension, tone quality, vibrato, coloratura
Vocal health and voice disorders related to singing
Vocal styles, such as learning to sing opera, belt, or Art song Phonetics ect.
Gina brings out the individual voice quality using classical techniques.
"There are several areas of study developed simultaneously during a lesson. Singing is unlike any other physical activity, because it is not easily observable. Since everything happens internally, technique is adjusted uniquely to the student. There are different ways to communicate an idea or technique depending on the age and development stage of the singer. Generally, lessons are weekly for one hour sessions. Warming up and applying technique the first half of the lesson and song repitior the second part. Professional singers like to refer to their Vocal Instructors as the Chiropractor for the voice. Healthy singing must be consistently aligned and founded on solid technique." Gina Feliccia
