Voice Class: Unsung
A Singing & Acting master class that uncovers the true nature of both the singer and the song.
From professionals to non-professionals, people fear singing because of pressure–self-imposed or imposed by others–to sound beautiful, great, better, more pop, less operatic etc. Most people have judgement about their singing Voices because of something derogatory that was said or because of strict demands that were placed to sound a certain way. Singing–free and clear from fear, worry, and doubt–is a skill that can be learned, must be learned, in order to exercise your soul and discover surprising new truths. In other words, as you learn to stop focusing on how you sound, you’ll begin to uncover what or who has been hiding–the Unsung.
There’s hitting the notes, and then there’s that “secret chord” being struck when you hit the notes. That secret chord–where your personal magic is waiting–when it’s struck, it plays upon your feelings and puts you perfectly in tune with the moment.
Taking the Unsung course, you will learn how to:
• Continuously let go and see what happens when music uses other parts of you besides your ears
• Focus on vocal technique without feeling hindered by it
• Understand and covey the song’s deeper meaning
• Find yourself in the song
• Be effective when singing on camera
Having your Playlist to pump you up is one thing. Having your “Slaylist”—songs you know you slay—is another. The Unsung course is all about learning to slay the song you sing.
Uncovering what makes you and your Voice special–and what works for your Voice–is Mr. Coury’s speciality because he customizes the work for the individual.
From Leona Lewis to Billy Ray Cyrus to Alicia Witt to Jason Gould to Menudo to Opera Australia to the Broadway and International companies of Disney’s The Lion King, Mr. Coury’s vast experience includes an eclectic roster that boasts his philosophy: What makes a great singer is the ability to strike the secret chord when you sing.
All genres of music and levels of proficiency are welcome. Just be where you’re at and take the Unsung course to level yourself up!
Prep for Class #1: Pick a song that speaks to you. Send a video with you singing that song to an Instrumental track, or while accompanying yourself on piano/guitar, or a cappella. Instrumental (karaoke) tracks to songs are on Youtube. Mr. Coury will review your video prior to the first class. Your tape will be played for class and Mr. Coury will rework the song live in the first class.
