ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Ever dream of a life as a singer? Is your schedule too hectic to commit to weekly voice lessons? Whether you aim for stardom or simply greater vocal confidence, this program is specially designed by celebrity vocal coach ILana Martin to bring Vocal Workout Method coaching to your own computer. Harness the power of your voice as you discover your gift and learn to share your story through this life-changing online experience.
Built from a core foundation of diaphragmatic breath control and intense awareness of vocal placement, each Vocal Workout online lesson combines breath, alignment, technique and repetition in a unique bonding method of allowing the whole body to resonate. The singing reflexes are then guided to become secondary to the body’s autopilot reflex channel, the most inward part of our muscle memory.
ABOUT THE METHOD
The Vocal Workout Method offers a proven, specialized approach to singing Pop/Rock, R&B, and Gospel styles. The methodology behind teaching soul vocals is a unique process that is taught differently than classical singing. Our method couples the instruction of soul singing with holistic vocal care and activation of core muscles so that our students can safely perform on stage and maintain their voices. We provide students with tools for a more integrated production of sound as well as guidance on how to properly care for the voice mentally, physically, and spiritually.
ABOUT THE COACH
Born in Los Angeles, California, ILana Martin began performing at 8 years old and entered Boston's Berklee College of Music at just 16. For many years, Martin toured internationally as the founder of the ILana Martin Jazz Quintet and as a supporting vocalist for Barry White, Patti LaBelle, D’Angelo, Stevie Wonder, Donna Summer, Norman Brown, Rafael Martos, and many others. Martin is a master of soul vocal performance as well as an accomplished pianist and songwriter, having performed and written songs for both stage and film and signed with Polygram Records for a time.
Martin's passion for teaching grew out of her love of helping others to achieve their best and most authentic resonance, guiding them to share their unique life stories. Based on her experiences as a seasoned voice teacher, songwriting coach, and R&B and gospel voice expert, she developed her unique method for the instruction of soul singing, the Vocal Workout Method, that is unmatched in its effectiveness. In 1998, Martin founded the Vocal Workout Singing School in Manhattan. Today, Martin employs a cadre of world-class teachers at her thriving Vocal Workout Singing School locations in both New York City and Los Angeles. Now, through the Vocal Workout Digital Voice School, she is thrilled to be able to share this visionary method with students all around the world.
