Take the Next Step

The Voice Essentials 2 Course continues the developmental journey of the Voice Essentials 1 Course, introducing ever-more challenging activities. Breath, pitch and range are all tested with the Voice Essentials 2 Course exercises.

  • There's more to music than the major scale. Get ready to test your intonation with new and exciting scales and intervals.

  • Breathing is foundational to great singing. Throughout the Voice Essentials 2 Course your breath management will be challenged.

  • If you're looking to extend your range then the Voice Essentials 2 Course will excite your vocal folds.

  • The perfect follow-on course from Voice Essentials 1. In fact, we strongly recommend you complete Voice Essentials 1 before beginning this course.
