We’ve created a brand new vocals work-out CD to really test and stretch your singing ability. Whilst the tracks contain some elements of breathing and warm-ups, the content is really designed to push your singing to another level. The exercises should take you well beyond your existing range as well as help you develop your ear from harmonisation skills.
Musicademy vocals coach Deborah Clarke introduces and demonstrates each exercise before letting you try up and down the scale. Deborah’s range and control is incredible and here she share’s with you the secrets that have made her such a fantastic singer.
You can buy either on CD or as an MP3 download.
