CeCe Sammy Vocal Coaching

Vocal coaching is about improving your vocal skills on every level. 

Whether you are a professional singer, actor, TV/radio presenter or someone who gives presentations as part of your profession (politician, lawyer, businessperson etc.)

Taking vocal, speech, or dialect coaching has immense benefits. 

The power of the voice is a hugely underestimated tool compared to other common aspects of presentational training that are focused on and are less impactful.

I pride myself on the training I offer, which is not run-of-the-mill. I tailor my approach to the needs of the individual:

  • Vocal Assessment
  • Vocal Technique
  • Vocal Performance
  • Visual Performance

Vocal Assessment

Your lesson will be bespoke, where I will assess you at the beginning and evaluate what you will need based on where your capabilities currently stand. We will discuss any concerns and vocal coaching achievements you would like to achieve in your vocal sessions, allowing us to maximize the results from each session. It is my priority to help you enjoy the overall experience

Vocal Technique & Performance

Unlike general theoretical warm-up exercises and breathing techniques that aren't applicable in practice – my vocal coaching style is about developing a method specific to your voice. In effect, this approach is to help you find your voice and maintain your voice's brand, vocal delivery, and performance.

Visual Perfomance

This session is about exploring, creating or developing your brand so that when you speak or sing, people can immediately understand the message you are seeking to convey, not just in sound but as a complete package.

Through tailored vocal exercises and assessments, this course will enhance your vocal projection, articulation and breath control to thrive when speaking publicly.

Vocal Coaching for Students

Through partnerships with schools, my team and I have created a series of engaging educational lessons that enrich existing music programmes in schools. Students gain real-world insights from industry professionals across various genres allowing students to achieve real success as performers and build confidence in the process.

Celebrities Vocal Coaching

For on-camera and off-camera celebrities seeking to improve their vocal skills, I offer an exclusive course that equips clients with techniques to increase confidence when speaking, provides guidance on keeping voice muscles healthy and preparation tips for upcoming events and expanding brands.

Musical Therapy Technique

I partnered with leading psychologists including Dr Kairen Cullen and since then I have created a course that encourages the important connection to music to help cultivate positive change in the physical and emotional health of public speakers.

Audition Coaching

This coaching session involves role-play and shortened versions of performance pieces targeted at those preparing for auditions. The practical demonstrations move clients from fundamental techniques to the art of good vocal delivery in a quick fashion.

Keeping audiences interested and invested is fundamental to a successful career in performing. This course guides experienced professionals on drawing the different aspects of performance together to improve their marketability.

Musical Theatre & Acting

This course optimises your voice for the big stage through tailored vocal exercises and assessments. In the process, I guide you in gaining an in-depth understanding of your character and developing a deep knowledge of the show’s history.

Vocal Coaching for Corporates

Utilising a custom training plan developed over decades of performance coaching, my team and I run experiential workshop sessions for individuals and groups who regularly speak publicly in a corporate setting. I operate on the premise that we are all orators and that each presentation or public speaking engagement is, at its core, a performance.

Questions you might be asking yourself

1. Who needs a vocal coach?

Everyone can benefit from a vocal coach. In fact, people from all walks of life can be taught by a vocal coach how to improve and feel more comfortable with their everyday speaking sound, as well as developing and nurturing a singing voice.

 

2. What is the difference between vocal coaching and voice teaching?

A singing teacher can teach people how to sing along to a song and sing in tune. A vocal coach can train individuals to sing and in addition, will teach advanced technique, bespoke vocal performance and promote healthy vocal practices.

 

3. Why would someone who is not a singer benefit from a vocal coach?

Our voice is not just about entertainment. It is about communication and it can be powerful. Whether you are a politician, a lawyer or a businessperson who needs to present, you need to maximise your ability to convey messages, persuade and impress. Our voice is key to these skills and if you learn to control it, you can unlock the opportunities.

 

4. Do all singers have a vocal coach?

Not all singers have a vocal coach, particularly not nowadays when there are increasingly sophisticated ways of filtering sound through the use of technology. However, lack of practice, knowledge and vocal control will result in a generation of artists with less understanding and performance charisma and more liability to hurt their voices.

 

5. What to expect from a vocal coach?

  • Someone who specialises in one technique or multiple techniques
  • The ability to use their own voice as an example as well as using words and images
  • Working towards targets and delivering on time
