With the economy the way it is, one of the many things parents have had to cut from their children's lives is music training. With all the shows on TV now like American Idol, Nashville Star, and America's Got Talent, you can understand why kids want to improve their voice. Your kids may not even be reaching that high — they may just want to get a part in the choir or play. Private lessons have always been pretty costly, and depending on where you live, may or may not even be available.
Ariella Vaccarino has changed all of that. Ariella is an opera singer and an experienced teacher based out of Los Angeles. She is also the creator of Voice Lessons To Go. Voice Lessons To Go is a 4 volume CD box set. You can buy them as either a set or singly. Volume 1 is called Vocalize and Breath. It shows you singing warmups and breathing excercises. Volume 2 (aff) is Do Re Mi Ear and Pitch Training. It filled with vocal excercises. It will improve your sense of pitch by concentrating on scales and chords. Volume 3 (aff) is Pure Vowels. It is compiled of vocalizes seperated by ah, ey, ee, oh, oo, and i. Volume 4 is Stamina. This is a group of vocal exercises to challenge and strengthen your abilities. She also offers on her site the ability to submit your voice and receive a vocal assessment. For $9.99, you can submit one minute. If you spend $39.99, you are able to send 3 (aff) songs! She will give you her full assessment and recommend song choices and exercises. She'll also get back to you within one week with that!
