Budding singers head to boot camp
HANNAH Siegmann, 8, who is preparing for the Cairns Eisteddfod, cares about her voice.
With 2.1 million Australians catapulting new singing competition show The Voice to the top of Sunday night viewing, it seems many more also care about how they sound.
That’s where Vocal Boot Camp steps in.
Organiser Katerini Manolatos, who gives Hannah singing lessons, said the vocalist’s plans to take part in the boot camp would heighten her chances of success.
"It will prepare her voice for up and coming events, give her some of the tools, so when the time comes to perform she’s not fatigued and can give it her best," Ms Manolatos said.
With speech and language pathologist Gail Rogers, the pair want to show people how to use their voices effectively through practice and care.
"It’s for everybody, across the board," Ms Manolatos said.
"For those interested in singing, those who have a passion but haven’t been able to pursue it, singing skills can be used to strengthen their professions.
She said speaking skills can be improved by practice, and techniques at the camp can be used for conversation, oral presentations and performance.
There will be a Vocal Boot Camp workshop for performing artists on April 29 with a Mind Body and Voice workshop on May 20.
