Zoom Vocal Workout
Zoom vocal workout is a live guided practice through Zoom for all Voice Hub singing students.
The idea came from the Ancient Greek saying "Επανάληψις, μήτηρ πάσης μαθήσεως" (Repetition is the mother of learning).
Through repetition and strategic methodology the aim of the workouts is to strengthen your voice, gradually take ownership of your instrument and develop a structured and focused practice routine.
Consistent practice will help you:
retain information that you have learned during your lessons
develop muscle memory
strengthen and stretch your voice
enjoy it more when you realise you are getting better at it
With our vocal workout group my goal is to gradually build the good habit of consistent practice, give you guidance for each exercise so you have a specific technical focus, share this experience with others so that in a way you commit to one another and most of all have fun! It is true especially for beginner singers, that practicing alone can be hard and can feel nearly impossible without guidance. However, the more you take ownership of your instrument, the more you are going to develop a know-how for your own practice while at the same time our lessons will be optimised.
Open to all levels. At these sessions we will be working on the fundamentals of singing technique. No matter where you are at your singing journey, you can always benefit from the basics of singing technique. Each exercise can be adjusted to your level by applying more depth and complementary techniques to it. During my guidance, I will give different options for different levels where needed.

“Engaging in self-awareness practices, such as voice training, is one of the things which never fails to give back to you.” - Andria
A note from Andria
Having taught and coached singers on a 121 basis for years, I have come to realise more and more that my role as a vocal coach is not only to teach you how to sing correctly during our lesson, but also to find a way to make you want to experiment and train your voice in your own time, at home and as regularly as possible. Passing that on is not as easy as it sounds, especially if the singer is a young child that just wants to play or an overcommitted adult with an overwhelming daily schedule.
Becoming a better singer requires most of all, consistency. This is especially true for the voice as it is a muscle and as any muscle in our body it needs strengthening exercises and stretching to stay flexible and strong.
My motto has always been “quality over quantity". Understanding the importance of constant improvement as opposed to searching for quick results with low quality is essential. Enjoying the journey of learning how to sing and making singing part of our lives and routine is what I am aiming to communicate to my students.
Consistency establishes a routine that serves a purpose; in this case, to learn to sing correctly and with freedom.
