Phase I - Vocal Foundations

Vocal foundations is all about focusing on key areas of the voice, rounding out the trouble spots in your voice, and setting a vocal foundation that we can build upon. This starts with taking an honest evaluation of the voice and then giving you the best techniques to start improving immediately.

A lot of singers get frustrated because they want their voice to perform in ways it's not strong enough to do yet, so we start by strengthening key areas so that we can free your voice of vocal pressure and allow you to access high notes easier.

All of the vocal exercises in Phase I will get you the foundation to hit higher notes, singer with more clarity, stop going hoarse, and have a polished brilliant tone.

**Free Bonus Singing Course** - The AApproach Advanced Warm Up!

Going beyond what is covered in the free professional warm up, the advanced warm up gives you the best exercises to warm up your voice…not matter your voice time. These bonus audio mp3s will ensure that when you sing, you will have the best possible chance of sounding amazing.

**Free Bonus Singing Course** - Amazing Singing From The Diaphragm!

Master your diaphragm and its surrounding muscles, and you will certainly unearth your true vocal potential. Developing a great singing voice is about more than just your vocal cords; your whole body can be a source of power. In particular, the muscles of your torso (back, abdomen, ribs, chest, pelvis) are of great value. These muscles surround the diaphragm and aid it in functioning efficiently. This is the knowledge that singers like Carrie Underwood, Pavorotti, Renee Fleming, Celine Dione, David Phelps, and Christina Aguilera have taken full advantage of.

Section 10: Phase 1 - Module 9

Breathing technique affects so much more than just how long you can sustain a note or phrase. It directly influences the following:

- Throat tension vs. Throat release

- Larynx position

- Tonal resonance

- Healthy Belting

- Freedom in the upper range



Breathing Technique is fundamentally all about the principle of "Expansion VS. Contraction"

I. Expansion

Chest, abdomen, back, side ribs, and pelvic floor must all gently expand with the inhale.

II. Contraction

The same muscles used for inhalation must now engage to pressurize the breath and support the voice.


The muscular strength of the diaphragm must be balanced with the resistance of the vocal folds in order to achieve freedom; brute force will ultimately weaken the voice. By utilizing a voiced "V" or a voiced "Z", we can teach the body - instead of our throat muscles - to reflexively engage the voice.
