Hi Jeannie, I got your Contemporary Vocalist course and I am thrilled. One of the nicest things about it is the assurance that you can improve your voice... I can see the idea behind the vocal exercises and it makes sense. We all think of the voice as a mysterious magical thing. But when you think of it in physical terms, it is understandable that it can be improved.

Audio Samples
These vocal exercise audio samples from voice lesson CDs will give you an idea of what it's like to be coached by Jeannie Deva. The original voice exercise recordings were made in professional studios to high quality CD standards.
In these samples Jeannie Deva refers to "tapes" because these vocal exercises were first released on audio cassettes. The masters were digitally recorded in a studio and are currently available on CD or as MP3 Downloads.

Also she refers to "ribs" or "ribcage" by which she means the ribcage expansion technique of breath support. You learn how to use this technique in Contemporary Vocalist Volume One. All of the vocal exercises in Volume One and Two should be done using the ribcage expansion breath support technique .
