Vocal Coaching with Maggie Britton

I am now taking bookings for one-on-one video conference vocal coaching.

This can be done in the comfort and privacy of your home or studio.

When I see your face and observe your facial movements as you sing I will guide you to your best vocal sound.  Improvements will be noticed straight away.  In a few easy sessions your vocal tone, strength and range will have undergone a great change.

Vocal Coaching Australia

Improving your vocal sound is easier than you think.

The singer/performer is often referred to as the artist. Consider this for a moment.

  • the space around them is their canvas
  • the mind is the brush
  • the soul is the palate from which the colour of the performance is drawn
  • and the body is the frame

When the intellectual, physical and emotional aspects are in harmony then the performer’s potential is realised.

Whatever the performer can visualise and hear in the mind is achievable. If you have any doubt, be assured that with focus, dedication and confidence, the vision can be, should be and will be the reality. The goal is to bridge the gap, between the vision and reality. The diligent student has control over this aspect of their progress.
