Finding Your Unique Voice, Your Unique Way

Finding your best voice is finding your unique voice. No voice is like another. No brain is like another. We all have different neural cues in our brain that help us remember how it feels to sing clearly and effortlessly. In the Julie Brown Voice Studio, I do instant vocal analysis and identify my students' unique neural cues to help them find their original voice. This comes in very handy for my artistic students who write their own music and helps you, as a performer, stand out. No matter what level you are, you can apply the AcapellaDiva method to find your unique voice, your unique way. Certain words help access technique and they are unique to each singer. I help my students identify their cue so they are able to access singing effortlesslly at their every "beck and call". These easy cues help you remember your technique outside the studio. When this technique is mastered, the sky is the limit! Sing your best!

Identifying Correct Singing While Practicing On Your Own

    There are tools we can follow to assist us in determining whether or not our tone placement is correct. Often people will say, "I can do it in the studio, but I'm having difficulties at home." My answer to that question is to reassess how you practice. Incorporate your visual skills: see the tone always going out. Incorporate your sensory skills: feel the resonance in the proper bone structures. And of course, hearing skills: some students like to have a microphone to hear their voice better. Breathing correctly is often the solution. To find out more about these tools and schedule private lessons, contact Julie Brown at julie@juliebrownvoicestudio.com and check out the website: juliebrownvoicestudio.com

Singers Know Your Voice

In my studio, I have often been asked the question.."How do I sing like my favorite singer?" I always ask 'What is it that you like about your favorite singer? Is it the dynamic phrasing, the emotion, the words, the passionate performance, the clarity of sound and diverse emotion expressed through the singers voice and presence?" I say incorporate the best aspects of them but never copy them and  try to sound exactly like this person or be that person.  You will be too busy copying and  trying to be them and you will have a diluted disconnected performance and not be aware of your own voice. The true singer knows himself/herself and her voice. To be another singer is not possible because No human voice is identical. We are all unique human beings. Our voice with the proper tools of breathing, clarity of sound and vocal control enables us to freely access  our unique gift from God. We must connect to the lyrics and our soul to the music. When this is achieved, a dynamic singer is present. Think back on Michael Jackson his dynamic presence, clear voice, connection to words he sangs with the soul he felt not to mention his ability to incorporate dance with  the  incredible moon walk. There is only one Michael Jackson.  He still is here hologram form as his performance lives on in our hearts. We are dynamic singers when we connect to the words and make them our own. Be the poet of your lyrics and your Sing your Best. No need to ever copy because you have the correct tools with the Acapelladiva Method to create the dynamics, the sound tone you want. Your instrument is [...]

Singing and Speaking are One

In the Julie Brown Voice studio not only do I give tools to help students sing their best I also teach them the skills to help them speak their best. Clarity of sound in speech is just as powerful and profound as a clear resonant singing voice. It catches the full undivided attention of the audience, be it one person or in front of thousands. Singing and Speaking are ONE. Singing is speaking in slow motion on chosen pitch. It truly reflects who you are. When people speak in a quiet, dull, monotone manner, others make judgments and assume the speaker has no confidence. The fact is they speak out of habit or out of just not being aware. Inattention: I help you become aware! You will become conscience of the mechanics of proper sound production in singing and speech. It is a matter of technique. My one of a kind methodology of accessing your particular style through my Julie Brown Acapelladiva instant analysis will be able to determine your mechanical issues and what is impairing the production of resonant, clear, confident sound. Call it a Catch-22 or domino effect, but it really is based on an ever increasing negative feedback loop. One can become shy and lose confidence if they are not heard the way they want to be heard or worse yet are totally ignored. A clear, resonant, confident voice can have profound effects. I have students who have found their speaking voice using the Acapelladiva Method and have ended up with job promotions, winning law cases, increased sales quotas, and marketing wins; actors and voice over actors and actresses who have more command of their role with the tools to help them [...]
