The French language has fifteen vowel-sounds. I say this every year at the start of my French Lyric Diction class as the students’ eyes widen. I can almost hear them thinking “Fifteen? How is that possible? How can I sing fifteen different vowel sounds?” That seems like a lot and it can be quite daunting if you are a singer starting out singing in this language.
This week, I am spotlighting the coach: It is important for singers to surround themselves with a team of people they trust completely to help them weed through all of the comments they receive daily and all the outside “noise”. A good coach as a member of this team, is a great help in figuring out which feedback is useful and they help you achieve results.
