AN INTRODUCTION TO
THE VOCAL ZONES
SINGING & PERFORMING ARTS
Learning From Experience
My name is Audrey Beharie-McGee and I will be your vocal coach who will be taking you on the magnificent journey ahead!
I founded VOCAL ZONES in 1996 so am celebrating 23 years of working with amazingly talented individuals from both the UK and USA!
My background is as a singer/songwriter and producer singer, songwriter and producer.
I have over 35 years of music business experience under my belt and have worked in a variety of entertainment-based environments which has provided me with an all-round view of the industry and what it REALLY takes to
I decided to launch VOCAL ZONES back in 1996 so as to enable my students to have an all-round learning experience with the HIGHS and NOT SO HIGHS that come with being a part of the entertainment industry.
My passion is to bring out the true essence of the students I work with and bring to the forefront that texture and tenacity to "enhance" their own voice without actually changing the natural,
Many people wanting to get involved in singing as a career or hobby are put-off by the thought of boring, repetitive breathing exercises that can become rather tedious sometime.
All training in any nature of the word will be boring at times, especially if you are being re-trained in a certain area.
It is true to say, if you're not prepared to live, breathe and put constant and concerted effort, drive, vigor and enthusiasm into your craft, then you will not reap the benefits or the acclaim at the end of the journey!
Setting Your Sights High!
Becoming an amazing performer definitely takes practice, diligence, tolerance and, of course, talent. However, some will say that talent is not always the vehicle that will drive you to become infamous. Sometimes, you just happen to be in the right place at the right time?
But, once you have had this "lucky break", you now have to have a contingency plan of
HOW to maintain it!
So I firmly believe that by taking time-out to personally get to know my students on a one-to-one basis in a strong, nurturing spiritual background, I am able to easily pinpoint strengths and weaknesses with the emphasis on helping my students to accomplish their own individuals goals and move them into a new and fulfilled life that will hopefully bring them closer to the acknowledgement of who they are as
"gifted and truly talented" creations!
VOCAL ZONES have been integral in helping many talented individuals go forward to pursue successful careers in the music industry, on the Stage, TV, scholarships to prestigious Performing Arts Schools, church choirs and singers of all ages and abilities.
There are so many elements that needs to be explored, especially with the fundamentals of just "knowing" your self and your instrument -
There are so many dynamics that you have to become one with so as to ensure you to drive your vehicles in any and every weather or condition and still arrive at your destination on-time and in EXCELLENT form!
Artist Development Programs
We have also been commissioned to work on Artist development projects for many record labels, management and production and also love working closely with Management, Artist Development or Production Company wishing to prepare your artiste for recording studio projects, touring and showcase auditions too?
By working with your stable of artist, we will be able to hone in on their specific strengths, weaknesses and areas that need concentrated efforts to ensure that they are "studio" or "tour" ready and able to give the most optimum performances in all areas of their work.
Bringing yourself or recording artist up to a certain level of standard can sometimes be a balancing act whereby you need an "outside entity" to be able to evaluate, train and hone skills in an objective and more "conducive" methodology. This is where you will find the greatest of results in regards to your progression as an artist.
Vocal Zones provides excellent artist development, vocal performance & arrangement skills and is able to progress the artist to the levels they need to attain to.
If you are an artist, or maybe a management/production or record label, who has recording commitments with your artist, rehearsing for a live show or tour or just needs special on-site coaching, then VOCAL ZONES also offers an Vocal Arrangement Service too.
We can come to your studio sessions or location, assist with finding harmonies, pitching and "singing navigational" issues, mentoring and general coaching relating the specific in your vocal production skills.
We can also assist with guiding you through the articulation of "singing/choreographic" energy preparation for touring or showcases where you are required to sing, apply movement and also demonstrate audience/stage awareness.
YOUR VOCAL JOURNEY
We care at VOCAL ZONES. And that is why we spend so much time and energy in getting to know you.
Many people wanting to get involved in singing as a career or hobby are put-off by the thought of boring, repetitive breathing exercises that can become rather tedious sometime. So, Audrey believe that by taking time-out to personally get to know the person on a one-to-one basis in a strong, nurturing spiritual background she is able to easily pinpoint strengths and weaknesses with the emphasis on helping her clients to accomplish their own individuals goals and move them into a new and fulfilled life that will hopefully bring them closer to the acknowledgement of who they are as "gifted and truly talented" creations!
TAKING THAT ABILITY TO THE "NEXT LEVEL"
Getting to know "WHO YOU ARE" as a person is one of the most vital cornerstones to becoming an EXCELLENT PERFORMER!
Mental, physical as well as spiritual barriers have to be broken down and re-assessed and built before you can achieve that higher echelon of performance excellence and truly believe you HAVE WHAT IT TAKES to make a serious mark in your chosen vocation.
Using a combination of strong spiritual values, mentoring skills and, of course, singing and performing arts techniques, the coaching ethos lies in allowing students to explore their own CREATIVITY, encourage them to use their IMAGINATION and PASSIONS in singing to UNLOCK VISION for their future and allow them to achieve their personal enhancement goals, build character, confidence and personality and a sense of expressiveness, pride and achievement!
