In many ways, the human voice is possibly the most remarkable instrument of all. Aside from the fact that everyone has one, the individual voice is quintessentially unique, differing from any other in myriad subtle ways. As the most immediate form of expression available to us, the voice is able to express emotions of pain, sadness, joy or anger with sensitivity and intuitiveness that is arguably unmatched by any other external instrument.
This, coupled with its ability to carry human language within a musical structure, has ensured that singers continue to be at the centre of all musical progress.
NSM’s vocal foundation program is focused on developing both the technical skills as well as the musical intelligence necessary to use your voice creatively and effectively in the context of a performing band.
