Our Own Best Bits So Far Part 2
Show Notes

Gillyanne and I have some more best bits we'd like to share with you, this time from Series 1 Episodes 6-9 and Series 2 Episodes 1, 3 & 5.

  • Episode 6 - The Singer in the Room. Industry sounds, why my belt isn't your belt, and at what point a singer needs to be "fixed" in their technique. And we answer Joanna's question about students and "when do you give up?"
  • Episode 7 - Stories Behind the Stories Part 2. Behind the scenes on the Oxford Handbook of Singing, Jeremy's transcriptions of classic recordings, and the sometimes tricky business of collaborative writing.
  • Episode 8 - Turning Points. How we've changed what Vocal Process does for us over the last 21 years, what it's like to create voice training resources in different formats, and how the biggest turning point of all changed the way we teach for good.
  • Episode 9 - Making it work. The two things that help us create new resources for entirely different audiences - context and purpose.

  • Series 2 Episode 1 - What's in Your Mug? Gillyanne explains what sparked the idea, and Jeremy describes two staples of every course we teach - the WOW Card and the Lionel Card.
  • Series 2 Episode 3 - Analysing Voices and Relationships. What we listen for, how we use reverse engineering, how to sound the same as someone else without "cloning", and Jeremy demonstrates one of our signature vocal techniques in a line from "South Pacific".
  • Series 2 Episode 5 - Registers, What's in a Name? We tackle one of the biggest cans of worms in vocal training,  Vocal Registers. M1/M2, Chest/Head, Modal/Falsetto. We talk about Mixing, and Jeremy demonstrates a whole heap of mixes in M1 and M2, featuring and disguising his primary gearchange.
