Intensive Courses

What are Intensive courses useful for?

  • Individually tailored for either one or two students
  • Focused on repertoire, technique, or both
  • Ideal as a singing holiday
  • Vocal Reconstruction a speciality

Intensive courses are a great way of making a lot of progress in a short time. These courses generally last a week, and consist of 15 hours of specially-tailored tuition. We can look at one or more aspects of technique, or we can concentrate on preparing specific repertoire – or a bit of both. Or why not arrange a course for yourself and a friend, and sit in on each other’s sessions? It’s amazing how much you can learn by witnessing the solution to someone else’s vocal challenges!

If you’re an experienced singer and have developed technical problems, Philip can help you to find practical and long-lasting solutions.

Tuition will be given in a course of lessons held over 5 days. The course consists of 10 lessons, each lesson to last 85 minutes, one lesson in the morning and one in the afternoon over 5 consecutive days (Monday to Friday of a single week).

Philip’s exercises are simple and effective, relying on vocal sensation and imagery common to all of us. This, combined with his wonderfully easy manner, allows the singer to invest fully in the process, both physically and, perhaps just as important, emotionally.
