Voice Training For Performing & Pro Vocalists
Our professional singing program was created to help working semi-pro and pro singers with their singing using the latest methods from specialized vocal coaches.
Help For Touring Singers
In the highly demanding world of the music industry, your reputation and career depend largely on your ability to be uniquely and powerfully expressive with your voice everytime you hit the stage. But your voice is an instrument the length of your fingernail! With such an exquisitely small and fragile instrument, wouldn’t you like to be sure it is functioning efficiently? Making sure it’s always working it’s best for the studio, rehearsal, and the stage requires the right training, balance, and especially the development of vocal endurance.
We Get It. We understand how hard it is to be on the road and in the recording studio singing at your absolute best everytime. Empowering working singers with vocal health and longevity is one of the major reasons why we started Singer’s Edge. So fear not. With the right tools, a healthy technique, understanding, and practice, you can get through your gigs night after night and your tour easily without compromising the health of your vocal cords.
The Singer's Problem
Most singers on tour experience issues at some point on the road. Live singing proposes a number of very different challenges than working in the studio, or even semi-pro singers have to deal with. Your tiny vocal cords (remember they’re only ½”-1” long) are easily overpowered by blasts of air from your abdomen if your voice is not carefully balanced.
Unfortunately, more often than not, most singers have to deal with lousy sound monitoring onstage which means they often can’t hear themselves singing onstage over the loud thrusts of the guitar, bass and drums behind them. When a singer can’t hear themselves, the problem can be vocal death. It can cause a singer to not trust their usual, healthy use of their upper range, causing them to yell instead for higher notes.
Industry people. knowledgeable, encouraging and fun!

Importance Of Balance
It takes a vocal expert trained in balancing your entire range together as one voice with no strain to further recognize how to help you maintain that balance in extreme situations such as this. Your vocal coach needs to have an understanding of and then be able to teach how to correctly adjust the relationship between vowel formation and vocal cord adduction in order to maintain balance when singing live with bad sound monitoring.
The best solution to this kind of problem is to get custom in-ear monitoring for your performances. But this can be costly and therefore isn’t an option for many performing singers. The second best option is to look around the stage for monitoring “sweet spots” where you can have space from the background noise of the other instruments, and/or be able to hear your own voice through a sweet spot in the stage monitors.
Excellent Vocal Technique
If neither of those options are possible, and many times they won’t be, then this is truly where good technique is essential. In these cases, the secret is being so familiar with good, contemporary singing technique that you can trust your singing correctly when you can’t even hear yourself onstage. Through the right training, you will have developed an intimate sense of the finer sensations of your voice when producing powerful tones in your upper registers. You might not be able to hear yourself, but you will know that your audience can hear you crystal clear.
At Singer’s Edge, we understand how much touring can affect your ability to connect with the music live onstage and enjoy the moment. We have a long track record of helping singers completely free themselves of vocal strain and create free, full, strong sounding voices. The most important tool available to you are our private lessons, which can optionally be taken over skype while you’re on the road in between in-person visits at the studio.
