Great singers are a wonderful mix of natural ability and a lot of hard work. Up-and-coming singers often forget the hard work part and rely entirely upon their talent. In this course, by the amazing Israeli jazz/pop singer Tammy Scheffer, you learn how professional singers create sound, shape notes and construct effective harmonization in the process of developing their unique vocal styles.

Tammy starts at the very beginning with basic posture techniques and vocal warmups. You may be wondering why these tools are so important. Well, youll just have to watch and see how using these techniques will improve your sound while, at the same time, enhance your singing career! From there you learn Tammys extensive vocal drills. Here is where you get all kinds of tips on how to produce intervals, shape your tone, nail pitches and, of course, how to singing in perfect tune without AutoTune!

Next up are a series of tutorials that focus on the voice as an instrument. Here you learn all about jamming with the chords and creating harmony. This leads right into a wonderful section on complex vocal rhythms and improvisation.

The course comes to close with a performers look at microphone techniques and how to incorporate looping devices so that you can create and improvise a complete vocal orchestra all by yourself!

How to sing ON MY OWN from Les Miserables | Live Voice Lesson. Voice Lesson starts at 1:00 minute.

This was a live voice lesson back in 2013 I had with an incredible voice instructor. Yes…the footage is not great, I wish I would have placed the camera somewhere else in the room but you can see her technique and how she helps me sing that high note at the end of the song. She also helped me find a powerful mix while singing high without sounding like I’m shouting or using an unsafe technique to get a powerful high note. I hope you find this educational or helpful if you are also learning how to sing On My Own.

“This is the most important song for the role of Éponine. In the song, she expresses her unrequited love for the character Marius, and how she dreams of being at his side but knows his love is for Cosette and not for her.”

– Cherish

On My Own Lyrics:
On my own
Pretending he’s beside me
All alone
I walk with him till morning
Without him
I feel his arms around me
And when I lose my way I close my eyes
And he has found me
In the rain the pavement shines like silver
All the lights are misty in the river
In the darkness, the trees are full of starlight
And all I see is him and me forever and forever
And I know it’s only in my mind
That I’m talking to myself and not to him
And although I know that he is blind
Still I say, there’s a way for us
I love him
But when the night is over
He is gone
The river’s just a river
Without him
The world around me changes
The trees are bare and everywhere
The streets are full of strangers
I love him
But every day I’m learning
All my life
I’ve only been pretending
Without me
His world will go on turning
A world that’s full of happiness
That I have never known
I love him
I love him
I love him
But only on my own
