Improving Your Voice Isn't the Hard Part

Increasing your range, fixing your break, singing higher with less effort,
singing in different styles or getting your rep book ready isn't the hard part. 

The hard part is...

Finding the time...for anything. 

Knowing what's most important to work on right now. 

Committing to daily practice. 

Focusing on removing obstacles like physical tension & allergies.

Getting enough feedback to ensure you're on the right track.

Finding a community to work with and perform for.

Developing a mindset to keep you out of your head and in the process.

Broadway VoiceBox solves the problem.

The Backstory...

I was a speech-pathologist and voice teacher working with Broadway singers and execs at Google. After teaching 8-10 hours a day, 5 days a week, I was burnt out and frankly bored.

I thought:

"If it takes 10,000 hours to be an expert at anything (i.e. singer), how is this model really going to help with that?"

There are only so many people I can see in a week and most working actors can really only afford financially or schedule-wise to come in once or twice a month. It's hard to reach those 10,000 hours in two 45 minute lessons a month!

There had to be a better, faster, and cheaper way to help my clients get the results they needed to succeed while also growing my business to help more people around the world.

Then, I realized it really doesn't have to be this hard.

Technology can help.

Now, that word strikes fear in most artists. They often say, "I'm not good with technology!" And yet, we use technology all day: smartphones, apps, Netflix, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, ATMs, Venmo. Technology helps us do so much more in a much more efficient way, so why not apply it elsewhere?

I came up with the idea of working with singers online, in a group, using audio files and video trainings to help supplement our work together. It was totally weird and it totally worked. Clients were singing better than ever, in a bunch of different styles, faster than ever before. It was hard turning back.

Admittedly at first, the technology kinda sucked. Skype zonked out a lot and Google Hangouts only allowed up to 10 participants at a time. Those things either annoyed people or freaked them out. But then the technology caught up.

Things are HD now, Facebook invented Groups, you can save and share private videos to Dropbox, Voxer and other voice apps allow you to check in for a quick vocal fix instead of having to wait 2 weeks to figure out how to belt that F.

Casting directors are starting to catch up on technology too. They not only review people's Instagram accounts, Facebook profiles and web presence, they also often prefer video submissions. Acting, singing and auditioning in this new tech era is a whole new ballgame. Not dealing with technology is no longer an option.

Initially, most of the clients of this new model were people outside of New York. Those that wanted Broadway quality training but couldn't come to New York. New Yorkers were totally anti "Skype lessons." Even though they use Facetime all the time with their families, their beef was that there was just something different about working with a teacher in person. I get it. As an actor that relies on the energy you get from the other people in the room, there is something irreplaceable about working together in person.

But I always struggled with the thought of "at what cost?" Is the conversation and the energy, worth the infrequency? The expense? The long drawn out time to actually achieve the results? Would you rather wait two weeks for a lesson appointment or get feedback tomorrow? I'd rather give you the feedback you need ASAP in whatever way possible, and save the chit chat for coffee or see you in person at a workshop or retreat.

Knowing that there is research to say that we don't actually learn through "blocked practice" I started to question the whole idea of a standard lesson itself. People learn through focused, short, frequent, randomized practice. I didn't make that up. There is loads of what's called "motor learning research" to support it. We learn what to DO in a lesson, but the actual learning...the brain changes... and the vocal changes actually occur at home.

The 10,000 hours happen while you're showering, humming as you walk around the city, singing in your car, meditating on your audition, running through your rep midday while your neighbors are out, foam rolling at the gym....

I didn't want to simply give people the vocal fish, but teach them HOW to vocal fish....or even better how to think about fishing...I mean singing!

I escaped to this incredible retreat in Genoa, Italy. On a cliffside, I locked myself in a room overlooking the Mediterranean where I developed a curriculum for training singers online. 

If everyone knew how to think about singing in a more strategic way, the actual exercises for fixing the break, belting higher without pushing, switching from legit to rock, singing while dancing, preventing or recovering from a vocal injury, developing that pro level polish.... are the easy parts.

More and more, I felt it has become my duty to help people be efficient. To learn about the voice and how to practice it more effectively. To listen to the research and meet with clients in short spurts several times a week.

That's where the learning could really occur even faster; by using technology to support how our brain wants to learn.

Could you do this by coming in every day to the studio for a 15 minute lesson? Of course! Is that feasible? No! But with online training it is.

Thus Broadway VoiceBox was born.
