TOS Review - Vocal Coach

Lilly has been bugging me wanted singing lessons for forever but it's never been in the budget, so when the chance came up to review Vocal coach I was so relieved happy. There were a couple of products to choose from so we opted for Vocal Coach Singer which includes 7 training Cd's, 4 workout Cd's, and an instructional guidebook (I got the download version) which equates to over $2,000 worth of professional voice coaching.

Chris and Carole Beatty who created Vocal Coach, have taught and coached singers for over 40 years. They have a very professional system of vocal coaching that will help both improve the sound of your voice and puts an emphasis on the mechanics of singing - It's as good as having your own personal trainer.

The 7 training programmes include:
  • Getting Started
  • Breathing
  • Warm-Up
  • Tone
  • Expanding Your Range
  • Diction
  • Performance
workout programmes:

  • Daily Workout High Voice 1 & 2
  • Daily Workout Medium/Low Voice 1 & 2
and the guidebook includes;

  • Printable sheets for each exercise
  • Singer's Journal 
  • Song Evaluation 
This set is packed full of indepth content (for example the "complete breathing" programme has over 20 files) and their passion for what they do really shows through.  They also have a number of  free resources available on their website including tips, videos, articles and interactive lessons. 

After having a look through the programme, you start with the breathing exercises and systematically move through the sections (Chris and Carole do suggest you consistently review the first three sections - breathing, warm up and tone).

The girls have done some singing at church but this is about more than learning to carry a tune - I love that they teach proper posture and breathing. We really, really, really enjoyed this programme and we have certainly benefited from it - even just from using it for 30 mins three times a week : )

‘Vocal Coach Singer’ is intended to be used with older students and adults (13+) but Lilly and Sunflower (10 & 8) were both fine using this.
The Vocal Coach Singer Cd's are available for $119.99 or as a download for $99.99.

You can see what my crew mates thought of this and some of their other products aimed at younger children over on the TOS Blog

Disclaimer: I was provided with a free copy of the download so I could provide an open and honest review.
