Description

What you’ll learn

  • You will learn how to use your diaphragm correctly and gain control over your breathing
  • You will know how and when to use your support system to make your notes more stable and give more resonance and depth to your voice
  • You will be able to use the concept of placement to sing in various tonal colours

There are so many different approaches to singing out there, that it can get very frustrating. I myself have been to quite a lot of teachers when I was young, just wanting to know where to start, but there was never one way. Frustrating, I get it…

There are a lot of courses out there that promise to make you a better singer within 30 days or in a very short amount of time. Speaking from experience, these courses give you a quick overview of what you need to do in order to become a good singer. But they all lack to provide you with an in-depth understanding of what you’re supposed to do – not only at the very beginning stages of singing – and can leave you more clueless as you progress, because in singing, everything’s connected. From the very beginnings of learning how to breath properly right up to learning how to belt or sing with compression and working on your expression. 

It’s like learning a new language, so if you only know the structure and grammar of one possible sentence, as soon as you want to say something different, you don’t know what to do.

I have developed this course the way it is, because it is my believe that if you’re really serious about singing, you should have as much information as possible so you really understand why we do things a certain way. You should also work on individual topics for longer, so the concepts really stick with you as you progress. Spending half an hour on breathing, supporting and placement really isn’t going to help you sing better. That’s why this course focusses exclusively on these basic topics. 

I personally believe that there can be no good development without getting proper feedback. This is why this course includes an invitation to an exclusive group of singers on Facebook. There you can post your singing exercises, videos, any singing / music related questions about this course or in general. I will give you a full feedback on your video/question and I’m sure some of the other members of the community are there to give you some feedback and advice as well.

Singing is such a vast topic with so many different aspects to it, that finding a place to start is probably the most important part in your musical development. From there you have a much better understanding not only of the foundations of singing, but also of where you want to go next.

—————————————————————–

For everyone who has mastered the techniques of this course, I recommend having a look at my second courseThe Foundations of Singing: Level 2” where we will look at more intricate voice building techniques.

—————————————————————–

For me there is a natural progression when it comes to learning. You start at the very basics and once you have internalized these, everything else starts to make more sense. Of course you will still have to practise, hell I’m still constantly practising and adding stuff to what I can do. 

The concepts of this course are easy enough, but sometimes hard to apply, because we have to re-adjust our body and learn to control and move areas of our body we sometimes didn’t even know existed. This is why I am trying to deliver the understanding of these concepts in a way that it’s easy to grasp and easy to apply. This course is designed to teach you the understanding and application of the underlying concepts, hence it is a very technical course, where you won’t spend hours singing. But once you understand and can apply the techniques, you will be able to sing for hours with good tone and all.

Imagine you’re wanting to become a dancer. Without learning proper technique, your dancing will be limited and those with better technique will always advance faster than you. This is because they can build on their foundations. So while this (and I admit that) isn’t the super-fun part of learning, it is essential for the development of your craft and the foundation for everything else you’re learning about singing and the best way to start.

You will also need to practise a lot, depending on how fast you can apply the concepts. Unfortunately no one can do that for you- yet, maybe there are robots for that in a couple years time 😉 – but I’m sure that with the right motivation and a strong mindset, you will be able to become the best singer you can be and you’ll be constantly adding technique and expression to your singing repertoire based on the fundamental singing techniques.

To end this, here’s what some of my students over the years have said about my teaching:

Tim is a fantastic teacher – he doesn’t just teach the best techniques, he has always been able to identify the best ways for me personally to overcome any challenges specific to my own voice to help me sing the songs I want to sing. He has me hitting high notes I never thought possible, and with power too!

– Matt K. (Singer/Songwriter, UK)

Tim is an outstanding, professional and well experienced singer/musician. When I first started with him I was a sad case, limited range and vocal techniqe. But after each lesson with him and good practice at home I started seeing more and more results. Expanded my vocal range at least an octave, my control over my voice was becoming better and my technique was improving. What I loved about the sessions with Tim is that he’s not one of those teachers who just waste your time explaining you how to do something, but he first makes it straight and obvious for you and after that shows you how it’s done. No excuses whatsoever, the way it should be.

– Achilles Z. (Singer, Bulgaria)

I was stuck with my vocal abilities when I decided to take some lessons by a rock vocal coach. I just googled rock vocal coach in London and basically he was the first who came up. To be honest, I didn’t have to look for another coach after that. Technically, I just needed a few lessons to take my voice to the next level…well…without him I wouldn’t be able to do the things I can do now. He basically opened/showed me a way to a completely different singing technique that helped me with A LOT of things. Reaching high notes, better support… the list could go on and on. How I like to describe it is that he made a ‘click’ in my voice and since then my way of singing has completely changed for the better. It’s like I discovered my voice again through his technique… and still discovering. I just can’t believe what I can do now with my voice, which I’ll always gonna be grateful for. Thanks Tim!

 – Lorence J. (Singer/Songwriter, Hungary)

Tim has helped me immensely throughout my journey as a vocalist. Thanks to him, I reached notes I’ve never reached before and was able to explore different areas of my voice that I wasn’t familiar with! Totally recommend him!! 

 – Cat P. (Singer and Singing Teacher, Portugal)

It’s quite a journey for me to London every time, but I’m looking forward to every single lesson with Tim. The lessons have a solid structure, I always learn new aspects of singing and I can see the improvement from lesson to lesson. I was only able to sing up to a E4 previously. Now I can hit notes like B4 and even sometimes a C5 without straining my voice and with a strong tone.

 – Simon B. (Singer, UK)

Just like those guys, I hope you will find success in what you do and if I can help you achieve it, even better 🙂

Looking forward to seeing you inside,

Tim

  1. Luis Brito

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela

  3. Jiaqing Fan

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

  8. Fortunate Eze

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.

    Cheers.

  9. Chendaniel

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

  10. Caspar Cheng

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
