Voiceworks Studio is Cork’s leading tuition centre for one to one vocal training. We have 12 vocal coaches available Mon to Sat each specializing in various genres of music and each coach has experience and qualifications specific to working with certain student profiles, be it kids, teens, adults, professionals or undergraduates, (see Team Voiceworks for full details).
A course of one to one singing lessons at Voiceworks is tailored by the teacher to suit the student’s needs. A typical lesson will start with a warm up with a focus on development of vocal technique. This will be followed by song work which will include interpretation/expression, musicianship, music knowledge, vocal technique, style and performance skills and will conclude with a plan for your week’s practice schedule. Students are encouraged to bring a mobile device able to record audio to each lesson and record some, most or all of the lesson.
All primary and secondary school students who sign up for individual lessons at Voiceworks must take a weekly 45 minute musicianship class unless they pass an assessment in September and/or can prove they receive sufficient musicianship training elsewhere. We want Voiceworks singers to feel confident and equipped to perform in any professional situation with a language and understanding of music that will allow them to communicate and participate with musicians, other singers and industry professionals with ease.
Goals are very important when embarking on any developmental or educational course. Rockschool exams for contemporary singing, music theatre singing and piano are available to Voiceworks students and take place in the first week of June 2017. For those wishing to take classical grades we use Associated Board and these also take place in the first week of June 2017.
Voiceworks will put on several gigs and events this academic year 2016/17 catering for all genres of music (see Events for more details) and all students are encouraged to audition. Each gig is accompanied by the Voiceworks’ House Band in a professional venue giving student singers a real performance experience.
