Sunday Session 1

Posted: February 17, 2015 in Angela Durrant

Angela had posted on Facebook that she would be holding an informal session on Sunday 15th Feb 2015. The session is Angela’s way of hearing our thoughts and trying to develop an idea of creating an event or online profile were artists can help themselves by helping each other. Almost like creating a community, we spent a few hours discussing the current state of the music industry and how the D.I.Y musician is categorised. We went round in a circle introducing our selves, our interests and a brief history. There were a range of ages, nationalities and backgrounds attending the meeting and it seemed we were all there for similar reasons; wanting to develop as an independent artist, wanting to be part of something and just wanting to socialise around singing/music.

I attended with Alex Heywood, a student in my class at Creative Sound & Music. Feel free to check out his research and work here..


Meeting Angela..

Angela Durrant is an established professional vocal coach, her background is opera and she also teaches in the university of South Wales. This category will document the development of my voice as i blog about each session i undertake. After my first session with Angela she complimented me on my range capability but also noted that i was over straining my neck and head muscles whilst sometimes ‘trying too hard‘ to achieve a desired result.. We discussed a potential future work plan before xmas and now for February I’m able to commit t0 the course…

Deciding to invest in vocal tuition will give me more confidence for my demo recordings and performances, the longer term is to try more gigs, i love to perform my music and hope to be the best i can be. I also see it as a long term investment, the knowledge of disciplines and techniques are important for any singer songwriter or aspiring producer of music.
