Yes, Natalie, I want to transform my voice…
This is not a registration form, but an application for the Voice180 program. By thoughtfully considering your answers to these questions, you’ll help yourself clarify, as well as communicate to Natalie Eastman, the current state of your vocal skills, vocal practice habits, performance skills, goals for your voice, and your motivation level to improve.
On the basis of this application and a Singing Strategy Session call (schedule here: https://ahighernote.com/sss-scheduling/), Natalie will be able to consider your fit for the program or your better fit in a different method of vocal development. With that in mind, please make every attempt to provide complete answers with full descriptions. Thank you.
Please describe your feelings about (1) your voice, (2) singing, and (3) performing vocally. * In what capacities are you currently singing? * What would it mean to you if you were able to transform your voice into something both you and others can stand to hear? * Describe your current vocal practice. In other words, what do you currently do to improve your voice and performance skills? How often do you do it? * Why do you want to transform your voice? * What are your (1) short-term and (2) long-term goals for your voice? * What are your top 3 challenges to your vocal growth right now? * Describe your current level of confidence in your voice. Please be specific. *
Your confidence in your voice: how it performs for you, how it sounds to you, how you think it sounds to others, how reliable it is for you when you go to sing, etc. In other words, how confident are you that your voice will do what you want it to do when you want it to do it?
Are you willing to practice daily – as in, every day – for six solid months? Why or why not? * What are the 3 biggest reasons you want to be in the "Six Months to a Voice You Can Stand" program? * Consider your responses to the following statements and check all those to which you're ready to agree today: * I’m motivated to work for six months on my voice to get the transformation I want. I’m ready and willing to practice daily, whether or not I feel like it on a given day. I’m committed to what I understand thus far of the process for the full six months. Feel free to comment on what you mean by “what I understand” in the “Other Comments” box below. I’m ready and willing to listen to Natalie as a coach – to be receptive, to trust the process, to receive gentle but honest feedback. I’m ready and willing to record myself singing, whether video or audio, post it to the program’s group Facebook page, and receive feedback on my singing and performing. I’m ready and willing to participate actively in the coaching-program group/community, both in the Facebook group and on our group coaching platform. I realize that by listening to others, providing feedback to others in the group, and offering encouragement, I help them and grow my own skills, as well. I am able and willing to create physical space in my home or other location for my vocal practice. I am able to use a computer, navigate Zoom or other online meeting software, and already understand apps (on devices) or I’m willing to figure out those things.
