About the Course
The 12-week Pro Vocals course has been designed for students who have little or no prior vocal training experience, or students who have attended one of our short courses.
This course will focus on Craft, the first module of the one year course, preparing students for further study with VTUK should they wish to enrol on the full course at a later date. It will cover the basics of voice production – how, why and where we make sounds and how to control them. You’ll learn about the basic ‘ingredients’ of sound production, including breath pressure, resistance, support and muscle effort to drastically improve your vocals.

Module 1 - Craft
The Craft module is designed to explain the mechanics of making sound. In this module, we will understand where and how we make sound, which physical structures are involved and how we can control those structures – in isolation and combined with others.
We will look at the basic ‘ingredients’ of sound production – breath pressure, resistance, support, muscle effort. Each of these structures will be isolated and controlled. In doing so, you will understand how they affect the essentials of sound – pitch, tone, volume, timbre.
You will be encouraged to make sounds in as natural and efficient way as possible. These ‘unrefined’ or ‘Primal’ sounds will have no aesthetic bias.
