Riley could not even look adults in the eye when speaking to them when Steve began teaching her at age 10. But by the time she graduated high school at 18, she had blossomed into a very powerful, skilled, and controlled singer who had starred in several school productions and won several awards and accolades such as the NJ NATS award and the NJ All-State Honors Choir.
Correct breathing for singers begins with a spontaneous open breath.  Upon inhalation, if ones hands are placed on the stomach - an inch below belly button, the hands will be pushed out by stomach muscles.  The singer's shoulders should be relaxed and not move up.  Neck and jaw should be relaxed.  Jaw needs to be unhinged.  Phonation begins with the movement of the stomach inward, where one is singing while pulling the stomach muscles in.  This is called "singing on the breath."  The phonation ends with the release of the abdominal muscles.  It's important to note that phonation should be ended with the release of the abs and not in one's throat, which is vocally abusive.
At Music House, our approach to private singing lessons embraces the music that our students love. It's a reimagined, modern approach -- one that emphasizes the use of new skills and knowledge in real musical situations. Let's face it, singers need to sing. That's why all of our voice lesson students are encouraged to perform in our auditorium, join one of our Workshop Bands and attend our free weekend community music classes. The combination of our innovative curriculum, experienced faculty, and countless opportunities for musical exposure creates an ideal environment for any budding singer. There's nothing else like Music House in Kansas City.

My passion is singing and I am pursuing a Master’s degree in classical vocal performance at the Mannes School of Music. My voice teachers have greatly impacted my life and my goal is to inspire my students in a similar way. I have acquired many different tools for teaching through my studies and teaching experience. Everyone has a unique voice and learning style and I tailor my teaching to each individual.
Two things in singing are non-negotiable: breath support and jaw placement. This online singing class will teach you both! You’ll learn breathing exercises for singing as well as proper jaw placement. Your instructor will even discuss diet for singers and the impact it can have on vocal health. A little homework will give you even more vocal training so you can build on a solid foundation of singing skills.
A description of how the vocal folds produce sound, including photos of real live vocal folds! You will learn how they come together for phonation (singing/speaking etc), and what they are doing at rest. You will also learn where they are placed in the throat. This lecture will help you understand why good vocal technique is important, and behind a sore or inflamed throat (and how to avoid it if you can!) 

The instruction in the Michael Daves vocal school is well thought out with each lesson building on the previous one. Not only is it a vocal school but you get to brush up on guitar skills as well. His lessons, without wasted talk, put the student right to work. The extra videos and interviews with musicians are an appreciated added bonus. Michael clearly has a grasp of what is needed to be an educator.
