PRIVATE COACHING with Micah Barnes

Sometimes a private coaching session is the best way to work on the technical issues and many challenges we face as singers. These one on one sessions last over an hour and are recorded to disc for you to work to later on your own. The following questions would be worth contemplating and asking yourself before booking a session.

Voice Production: Do you have a solid command of the mechanics of singing? Do you understand breathing and resonance? Do you need to build range, tone and flexibility?
What kind of warm up are you using and are you getting the best results?
All of these things are essential to good vocal health in a vocalists long term career.

Physical Relaxation: Are you physically centered and relaxed when you work or are you straining, pushing and tensing while you are singing? How do you approach the act of singing? Full of anxiety or full of joy and freedom? We can set you up with exercises that will remind you to use a relaxed approach while singing.

Material Selection: Are the songs you are performing right for you? Are you working in the correct keys for your voice? Are you connected to the material and able to get deep inside of the emotional world of the song? Does your song selection liberate the "real you" in your singing?

Material Development: Are you a songwriter who is looking to create your own material? What are the skills you presently bring to your song writing collaborations? What skill set do you need to deepen to be a better collaborator? We can have a look and listen to what you have developed so far.

Stage Craft: Are you making a relationship with the audience? How can you develop a stronger way of reaching and holding an audience? What are your fears in performance and how are they holding you back? Does Stage Fright stop you from taking on new opportunities to perform?

Career Strategy: Is your career where you want it to be? What are the challenges facing you at this time? What are your dreams and what exactly are you doing to get yourself there? Do you know how to build a team that is right for you? We can build a step by step strategy for you to follow and get you moving on your path!
