Your online toolkit:

  • Any form of online video calling software or programme. The easiest at the moment is Skype, but we can use Facetime if that doesn’t work out. My Skype id is ‘sgvocals.’ Once you’ve created an account, please add me up before the scheduled lesson time.
  • A computer or phone with a webcam. If you don’t have this, we can still use audio, but seeing faces is always a more beneficial experience.
  • Headphones are great, but not completely necessary.┬áPlease make sure they have a microphone attached. Apple headphones are perfect if you don’t want to get all fancy with Beats or the Bose noise cancelling type.

Skype lessons are a little different to in person lessons. One of the biggest differences is the ability to play the scale whilst you sing it: the interweb gets a little overloaded if we try and do that.

But, this is actually a powerful training exercise. Increasing your ability to sing the scale acapella will, over time, improve your pitch referencing and execution on everything you do (there’s a positive in everything!)

With that in mind, please have a listen to the scale that is applicable to you below. I’ll talk you through what you have to do. As I said, you’ll pick it up quick enough but this is just to take the edge off of any pressure you may be feeling.
