PHILOSOPHY

James Slaughter demonstrates the way to sing correctly – with easy to understand – step-by-step voice lessons. If you follow the James Slaughter curriculum as designed, you will be the master of your voice. You will learn to sing the right way. “Singing is a physical activity that requires a particular coordination to master it much the same as one would with a sport, dance, or even something as simple as learning to ride a bicycle."

This is an important way of thinking that James instills in his clients from the very first meeting. James knows that every voice is unique and individual and proudly assumes his position, as a vocal stylist to bring each clients voice to it’s full potential. James first step is to explain to his clients the workings or physiology of the voice. He believes that the first step is to gain the fundamental understanding and then add the physical feeling of it through vocal exercises.

The next part of the process is the practical application of the technique to singing songs. James believes that doing vocal exercises may not produce the desired results without this step; therefore each and every session includes the actual singing of songs. Many vocal coaches can’t sing themselves and therefore can’t show you how to really sing. James personally demonstrates each and every singing technique.

Each client has there own unique voice and using proper, proven vocal technique will take your voice to new levels – to heights you never thought possible! Will be the master of your voice. You will learn to sing the right way.

ADONIS PARKER

"Vocal Coach Adonis has been with Marvelous Enterprises for 6 years and has used his experience to develop a 4 S.T.E.P method that he uses to address most to every aspect of vocal performance which includes vocal warm-ups, vocal fitness practices, vocal performance training, and vocal and stage training.  Beyond his effective program, he makes instructional contributions via YouTube videos and his Blog website to assist singers who live abroad." It is a concise and structured method that's covers the basic essentials of vocal production, vocal performance, and stage performance.  I use a concise method because I have observed that in today's learning climate students prefer "the short story over the novel."  I specialize in R&B, Pop, Gospel, Soul, and Alternative genres. I brand myself as 30% voice teacher and 70% vocal coach. Once vocal basics and vocal technique are proven satisfactorily, vocal and stage performance development will become the central focus for the student.  



Vocal & Stage Training That's "Straight to the Point, Not Too Technical, and Without the Confusion"
