  • Instructional videos you can stream into your room when it’s convenient for you, to support and reinforce the materials you are learning. You can sing along with Marybeth, or listen, pause, then sing alone... or both. 

  • A set of warm up exercises, videos, mp3’s and PDFs bring each lesson to life.

 

  • Covers all of the basic and core foundations of vocal technique to support a singer or speaker in actualizing their voice in all of its potential.

 

  • Complete guidance and reassurance that you are enough just as you are. 

  • Build confidence.

  • Instill a deep wealth of physical and aural knowledge that singers can tap into at any time.
