Week 1: Excercises

During this week, firstly, you will quickly begin to experience clear changes and improvements. Secondly, we will lay the foundations for the dramatic improvements you will continue to experience as you progress through the rest of course.

To get a bit technical for a moment: we work on the diaphragm, intercostales externi, serrates anterior, pectoralis minor & major, latissimus dorsi etc. Don’t worry if you don’t know all these areas of the body – everything is explained in extremely simple terms during the program.

We also do a number of breathing exercises, stretching, as well as working to further ‘open up’ and build the ribcage – your vocal “amplifier”.

I can assure you that the results come quickly each day and are very easy to hear!

Week 2: The Back

During Week 2 of The 21 Day Vocal Trainer, we focus specifically on the effective use the muscles located throughout the back of your body.

The back is an area of the body that tends to hold a lot of tension, which unfortunately has the side-effect of impeding your singing. You may not realise it, but this area of the body is responsible for much of the warmth and depth of the quality of your voice, which is why it is so important, and well-worth spending time on.

As we begin to release this tension, it is as if a layers of held-back sound gets released along with it. It is truly remarkable how quickly your voice seems to ‘unfold’, as if there these layers of sound were packed away in a suitcase and inaccessable.

Week 2: Excercises

During week 2, we work on the flexibility of the spine and ribcage, along with continued breathing and stretching exercises.

Once again, the results come quickly and are evident and extremely easy to hear.

Week 3: Posture

Focus now shifts to gaining a balance between the ribcage, back and front.
The center of your body is essential for the flow of you breath and voice.

Week 3: Excercises

We work on the the spine and inner core to get the balance between front and back. We work on exhalationmuscles, especially in the abdomen.

Results are immediate and easy to hear.

Why is sound added to some excersises?

Some of the excercises focuse on the connective tissue. The connective tissue forms the pattern of the bodystructure. When we work in specific areas of the body with sound and movement, we can dissolve old, warnout habits an produce new patterns that have a powerful impact on your voice.

The singing exercises are intentionally very simple and you can always combine the physical aspects of the exercises throughout the course, with more advanced singing exercises or scales, if you prefer to do so.

A quick word about the physical challenge of the course:

None of the exercises are designed to hurt or be too ackward!

If you for any reason you find the exercises, as demonstrated, too physically demanding, simply adjust them to suite your own abilities, and them complete them as well as possible.

This means stretching and bending your body a bit less – I assure you that this will in no way lessen the benefits the exercises will personally provide you.

That said, it is also well worth it to push yourself within reason – so I encourage you to do so – that is, to get out of comfort zone, without causing injury to yourself!
