9:10am: Session 1 – Effective Vocal Technique

We’ll discuss vocal health and how to avoid vocal damage. Finally, you'll get an understanding of true power through breath support. This skill is essential to all singers and will not only help your voice to stay healthy, it will help you eliminate strain and enable you to increase your range. Lastly, join Sheri as she explores the function of proper larynx position—it will truly set your voice free!

We'll help you to design your own personal vocal warm up routine — one that you’ll DO! We will also give you some ways you can strengthen and condition your voice as well as develop lots of other skills through a vocal workout that you will help create! Next we’ll take an in depth look at how to affect the quality of your singing voice. We’ll help you to find ways of discovering a sound—or multiple sounds that work well for you and show you how you can apply this to help develop a style that is all your own!

12:15pm: Soup/Salad Lunch

1:00pm: Session 3 – How to be an Effective Background Vocalist
Being a background vocalist brings with it many challenges. We'll discuss the many facets of being an effective background vocalist, including prayer, appropriate dress, and attitude (and how to deal with those bad attitudes of others!), microphone technique, harmony singing and blend, improvisational techniques, and how to gracefully submit to leadership!

2:30pm: Break

2:45pm: Session 4 – Take your Worship Team to the Next Level 
We'll take a look at some of the things that impede progress for a typical worship team and give you some tips on how to overcome them.
