Presenting WORSHIP BAND DYNAMICS PROGRAM :: VOCAL TRACK.
Breakthrough & Creative Worship Vocal Lessons in Singapore.
Having taught many worship music students, we have found every student unique in areas of creative strengths and challenges. We have designed a 7-Step system that can help all students of all levels breakthrough in their skill level.
STEP 1: Listen to all Soundtrap Recordings & Coach Video Recordings
STEP 2: Plan a storyboard for the song & Practice them before class
STEP 3: Sing and Present in the Class
STEP 4: Record your homework as video assignments. Upload in dedicated student folder.
STEP 5: Coach will comment and grade all video assignments and assist to perfect students
STEP 6: Students continue to re-record their assignments till 10/10 Score
STEP 7: Keep Repeating
From Steps 1-7, Worship Coaches are adopting an Active Online Feedback System to be able to track everybody's individual skill level through video and written assignments. Optimally in class, we can focus on Group Synergy - developing student's confidence in the presence of others.
This is an awesome formula for growing individual musicianship skills and group dynamics.
Right now, inherit 2 innate creative skills, playing as an individual and as a band, in one training system.
OVERCOMING CHALLENGES OF SINGERS
These are the 5 Top Obstacles that singers face.
Weak fundamentals = Not breathing correctly, using diaphragm support and projection
Clarity = Lacking diction and voice projection
Creativity= Unable to recognise and use the different type of voices, placements and air flow
Fluidity = Restricted to one backing track instead of singing with a live band
No where to serve = Can't test my skills safely in public
Brace yourselves. It can all be overcomed.
Types of Voices
There are 4 types of voices which are the most commonly used -
Chest Voice - The most comfortable range for a given singer. Most commonly heard and used sound but there’s no real way to define it
Falsetto - An airy sound and usually starts with “h-h-h” sound before you can produce the actual note
Head Voice - Similar to falsetto but it has a clear and almost solid tone. It can also be produced at a higher volume
Mixed Voice - Links the quality of the warmer, stronger and lower chest voice with the brighter and higher head voice.
LEADING WITH YOUR VOICE
The Worship Band has 2 key leaders - The Lead Singer and the The Drummer.
God created every individual uniquely and there are no hard and fast rules on what is the best singing style. Only by understanding your voice, you can then apply the different techniques into songs, leading people to humbly bow before God and to lift His name high through praise and worship.
