Achieve your performing goals

The myriad voice types and how they function are vast. For example, a small voice may have great carrying power while a larger voice may not… 

The size, weight, volume, color and carrying power of voices are all ingredients that indicate with which other voices they will blend. A singer’s technique also plays a great part in whether their voice can be heard or endure or match another singer’s voice. Not only we are well trained to hear and assess the natural qualities of a voice but we understand immediately when there are technical problems and whether they will cause bigger problems down the road.
