Voice Projection Workshop

Lessons in CCM Style Singing​​​ - adults and children​​ 

Do you find yourself...
as a speaker in the public domain where venues offer no microphone amplification? Do you find yourself straining to be heard at the back of the room? This problem is especially common amongst teachers in university lecture halls or classroom settings. How do you project your voice and get heard, without causing your voice damage, or even coming away feeling bodily pain due to the stress of the event?
Hummingbird Coaching would come to where you are (or via Skype online conferencing if prefered) and teach, on a one-to-one or group session basis, the key skills needed to better project your voice.
   Experience how correct breathing support, posture, an open throat and confidence, amongst other vital ingredients, make for a successful recipe in public speaking, causing it to be an all-round more enjoyable experience -for you and your audience. 

For further enquiries and to book Hummingbird Coaching at a competitive rate, contact Hummingbird Coaching by filling out the form below, sending a Skype message or by calling Tracey on 07540 283796.

Workshops in Musicality and Songwriting​​​​​​​​​​​​ 

Do you need...
help getting started with song-writing?
Tracey is available to work with you on a one-to-one, or group workshop basis, to give you some tools, ideas and inspiration to help spark off your imagination to get you off the starting block. Or perhaps you want someone to give you a critique of a song you have already created or you want help with a certain section of a song.

Do you want...
to improve your rhythmic and general musicality skills? On a one-to-one or group workshop setting, Hummingbird Coaching can help develop, through the aid of fun games and exercises that involve movement and vocalisation, concepts of beat; measure; sound analysis; response; co-ordination; patterns; ear training; and much more. 

Whatever your needs, please contact Hummingbird Coaching by writing in the box below or by calling Tracey on 07540 283796.

Recording & performance preparation​​​​​​​​​​ 

Are you preparing...
to head in to the recording studio or for a big performance?
Tracey has a wealth of experience spanning over 10 years, within the recording and performing fields.

Here are a few testimonials:

Says Shaun Lowe, Sony award winning producer at Prism Studios, Stoke-on-Trent:
    "For me, as a producer, it's so refreshing working with an artist like Trace Taylor; Trace knows exactly what she requires. Working on her "It Is Finished" album (2015) was a very refreshing project in terms of engineering... It's an album where, when you listen to it in its entirety, time seems to go very fast -which is a sign of good song arrangements and a good album structure."

Says Ted Bruun, founder of the U.S.A and international tourThe Extreme Tour:
​   "Tracey Taylor is a talented and accomplished musician. Having toured with her, seeing first hand her artistic excellence and passionate performances capture audiences attention at each event, I am convinced she would make an excellent vocal coach for any aspiring artist. I strongly recommend her!"

Trace has been invited to Nashville over the past two years to contribute at the annual tour's "Objective" conference, both as critique to auditioning bands and within a mentoring capacity.
