This is a course for the frustrated singers who've put it the work and still don't feel like they can trust their voice.
Maybe you've had more singing lessons than you can shake a stick at and still your throat tightens on high notes.
Perhaps your eyes are red and bleary from watching ALL the YouTube videos on how to get rid of your vocal break and yet that same note gets you every time.
Maybe you've invested multiple piggy banks worth of moolah and still can't get that consistently full tone you're after.
I get it. I've been where you are and it's tough.
I remember the sick feeling in the pit of my stomach when I was belting out a song and my throat started to hurt.
The anxiety creeping in when we got to the third set in our gig. Was my voice going to hold out?
Wondering why my chest voice sounded so great and yet my mix was so unsteady.
Plus my head voice sounded so damn classical.
Does this ring any bells for you too?
This is the whole reason I created Pimp Your Voice.
I don't want any more singers to feel lost, angry or embarrassed because they can't crack the seemingly mysterious code of building the reliable, versatile, easy-like-Sunday-morning voice they dream of.
This course is a detailed easy-to-follow plan of attack without the confusion or ongoing costs that gives YOU the knowledge, tools and techniques to become your own best teacher.
Imagine how it would feel to sing all the way through your range easily and feel like you know enough to problem solve yourself in practice sessions?
You should be able to relax and actually ENJOY the process rather than overthinking and feeling overwhelmed. That's the dream right?
Unfortunately doors are currently closed for this course and won’t re-open until September/October.
If you’d like me to let you know when that happens, please pop your details below.
Pimp Your Voice is an online course that was created to show you exactly how to fine tune your own voice so that you can practice and perform with confidence.
If you want techniques explained in a way that clicks immediately to teach you how to iron out those pesky creases you've been battling with, this could be your jam.
DO YOU WANT TO...
Feel like your voice is consistent no matter what note you're singing?
Know how to practice efficiently so you're not wasting hours of time and getting nowhere?
Know that you're singing safely and efficiently without damaging your voice?
Awesome-sauce, stay with me then.
Most singers have a lot of the pieces of the technique puzzle but aren't entirely sure how to pull them all together.
You may feel confident with your lower notes or your higher notes but that section in the middle still doesn't feel right.
You may notice that certain notes lose their clarity, ring or resonance and don't know how to fix it.
You may feel tension or pushing when trying to add volume or power but don't know how to get rid of it entirely.
It can all feel better.
SPECIFIC THINGS WE'LL COVER INCLUDE:
Eliminating tension in your body so you're not feeling uncomfortable or struggling to project
Changing the way you shape your vocal tract to get the sound you're after for the song you're singing (yes you have choices, my friend!)
Smoothing out that gear shift between your chest voice and your head voice that makes you cringe
What options you have in terms of volume and power
How to structure a practice sessions so that you're actually getting results and not just singing that song over and over without making any progress on the hard bits
Tackling the register you love to avoid (I know I know, it'll be painless I promise!)
How to tweak your tone for different styles while keeping your unique sound
How to work on your thoughts and emotions so that performance anxiety or the voice that tells you "you're not good enough" doesn't derail you mid-performance.
All of this is delivered with love in downloadable video tutorials, audio vocal exercises and practice worksheets to help you practice the right stuff (oh and don't forget that you can check in and ask questions throughout to make sure you're on the right track).
PLUS my 30 Days to Better Breath Support videos AND my Not Your Average Vocal Exercises are included with this course.
WHO AM I TO GUIDE YOU THROUGH THIS WONDERLAND?
Kimberley Smith, vocal coach at your service.
I've been singing for over 20 years and have had training in classical, musical theatre and contemporary music.
Everything I teach came out of the frustration I felt when I was learning. My mission is to constantly find better and more practical ways to help singers understand how to get the best out of their voices.
I'm big on talking about what technique feels like and how you feel when you are making music, because if you lose your passion and joy for it - what's the point?
WANT MORE FEEDBACK FROM SINGERS WHO HAVE BEEN THROUGH IT?
How can you learn singing in an online course? Isn't it different from person to person?
The fundamentals are all based on the techniques and tools I use to teach all my students and have been pieced together in the most logical order.
Some elements you may grasp quicker than others but the way we develop these is structured to strengthen AND free up your voice, something most programs don't tackle.
There are also options for personalised feedback via one on one lessons to help with anything you find particularly challenging and would like to work more on.
How will you know if you’re doing it right?
Everything is clearly explained and demonstrated in videos and audio downloads so you can't go wrong.
We will have masterclasses sporadically throughout the 12 weeks which will allow you to either be part of or watch other singers get coached on what we’re working on in the course.
You also have access to your own personal cheerleader and vocal coach (ME) to ask questions via the course comments section, email and in the 3 masterclasses we’ll run throughout the program.
What if you sign up and don't find it useful?
I am so confident that you will find this program useful that I have a refund guarantee backing it up.
If by the end of Week 2, you're not noticing differences in the way your voice feels and sounds you can get a full refund.
You just need to submit recordings of at least 6 practice sessions and the filled out worksheets so I can make sure you've been following along (that's how you get the progress my dear)!
What if you’re too busy and can't keep up with the program week to week?
I know life gets in the way of things and things we need to do take precedence over things we might want to do.
That's why you have access to the program as long as it's running so you can revisit any content whenever you like. Also, every video and audio file is available to download.
Why is each month released separately?
One of the issues I see particularly with advanced vocalists such as yourself is that we tend to skip over things too quickly. This way you will spend a week really focusing on each piece of the puzzle so that we build your voice properly from the get go.
