These resources were filmed during a teachers' workshop for In Concert and was led by renowned vocal ensemble The Idea of North. The videos focused on developing singers' awareness of pitch, diction and a cappella skills.
In this course, Rachel Kelly demonstrates ways to prepare the body for effective singing through physical exercises that foster good breathing habits; exercises and techniques to gently warm up and move the voice through the entire vocal range; creating a unified, pure vowel sound and exercises on consonants to improve clarity and diction; and methods of extending vocal range and exercises to develop a harmonious, choral blend.
