SESSION ONE & TWO SUMMARY

The first two sessions are in great part about the instrument of the voice.  Understanding it then mastering it.  A great singer today must be a complete musician but also have a great instrument that they understand completely and develop. There is also the theory (scales and repertoire) of singing jazz and pop tunes.
