The Continuous Vocal Academy is aimed at singers who have already done a CVI course (a 1-year, 3-year, a Continuous, or a Vocal Academy), and wish to further extend their vocal ability. The Continuous Academy builds on the current vocal skills of the participant and helps every individual singer in the group to achieve a significantly higher level both professionally and artistically by working on issues in each participant’s voice. With targeted technical and artistry sessions aimed at helping each singer achieve the sounds they want in their singing, the course balances artistry and expression with vocal technique and musicianship to help singers achieve and further develop their own distinctive artistic character.

The Continuous Academy is open to all genres and styles, and is an effective and efficient way to achieve new heights in vocal development that can be immediately applied in singing, after completion of the course.

The singer’s technique should facilitate the message. Therefore, working on expression and performance is also central to the course. During performance classes & master classes, the singer will have the opportunity to work with personal expression, in relation to his or her repertoire.

The Continuous Academy is offered to singers that have already attended The Vocal Academy, The 1-year Course, The Continuous Course or The 3-year Course.

At the Continuous Academy we attempt to tailor the process to individuals needs and wishes and in order to ensure that goals are being met and that progression is taking place, the singers’ development and work moral is closely monitored.
