Vocal Coach Team ‘The Voice Hub’ visits ACM’ers

ACM recently welcomed Rósa B. Ómarsdóttir and Michael Hil, founders of The Voice Hub, through its doors to teach students about Complete Vocal Technique (CVT) ; a singing method that focuses on using the voice in a healthy manner, while utilising all the sounds the human voice can produce. Having been running vocal coaching workshops across the UK, The Voice Hub has trained vocalists and actors with serious credits such as Game Of Thrones.

The session gave students insight to all aspects of this technique, the anatomy and physiology its based on, and the three overall principles vocalists must abide to in order to sing in a healthy way: Support (using the diaphragm), necessary twang and avoiding protruding the jaw and tightening the lips.

After this introduction to CVT, the students had a chance to take part in some practical exercises, alongside being invited to join The Voice Hub on stage for one-to-one tutorials. Throughout the session questions were welcomed and students were thoroughly engaged.

Michael and Rósa said their top advice to students would be…

“You should sing what feels right and enjoy it, and if it feels wrong it is wrong, so then in that case don’t sing it. Just enjoy what you’re singing and then make the most of your voice.” – Michael Hil (Voice Hub Founder)

“Find the sound that you like and be true to who you are as an artist and not let everybody else tell you what to sound like or who to be. Find the sound that you like.” – Rósa B. Ómarsdóttir (Voice Hub Founder)

The session was one of many opportunities put on every term by ACM to help push the students to maximise their potential.

ACM understands how the music industry works today and has created an immersive and comprehensive learning environment, which connects directly with the industry. Our learning by doing ethos helps simplify how the industry works and produces a clear view of career paths and options. This clear and practical approach accelerates learning. The detailed exposure to all aspects of the industry as it happens (live!) reveals options and destinations, which greatly assists our students in making clear choices and building the maps they need to guide them there. If you are a producer you will know that you need a fundamental grasp on song structure and songwriting, but you also fundamentally need to know about revenue streams and intellectual property, from which you will draw income. You will also need to understand how your music is monetised through live performance, songwriting credits and publishing, including sync and licensing. We will teach you all of this comprehensively at ACM by linking you with the teams that do this every day at Metropolis.
