Rock Singing Lessons
As a “rock guy” myself, I personally struggled to find a singing teacher who took my love of all things heavy and raucous seriously. Classical scales, clean singing and a boring tone seemed to be the only course of action – until I realised all these scales and drills really weren’t helping me achieve my goal of singing rock.
After many years of being frustrated in singing lessons and spending way too much money buying books and courses, I actually ended up with more questions than any of these methods had answered. Sure, I could sing a lip trill okay most of the time, but HOW was this going to help me learn how to sing like Chris Cornell or sing Aerosmith songs? So, instead of looking for the next big “secret” or “magic” solution to singing, I started to look for very specific answers to each of these important questions – WHY wasn’t my voice working, HOW was this exercise or that exercise meant to help me, HOW do I move forward, WHY was the process taking so long?

Best vocal coach ever! Before sessions with Kegan I knew a lot about singing (SLS, CVT, Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy KTVA and other methods) but couldn’t use what I know. I wasn’t able to apply over-complicated concepts and simply thought that I just have no talent for singing. Sessions with Kegan HELPS me sing songs and understand my voice and use it in way that I always dreamed. – Иван (2019)

[one_third padding=”0 10px 0 0″][/one_third]Now, the most important thing I’ve discovered in almost two decades of learning how to sing is that ANY style of singing starts at a foundation level, especially powerful rock singing. A fantastic rock singer like John Fogerty or Chris Cornell isn’t just yelling and pushing – they have a very powerful base of support, resonance and a solid approach and understanding of vowels, range and tone. So, the first step to becoming a great rock singer is to set up a rock solid foundation. Foundation in singing is just like the concrete foundations of a house that is being built – the solid base that your walls and roof (tone and range) are built upon. Vocal foundation includes;
- Connecting chest and head voice
- Mixed resonance
- Vowel formation
- Managing resonant space
- Balancing your onset
- Supporting your voice
- Developing a relationship with each element of the voice
With a solid foundation, you can then build and grow a powerful rock voice without putting your vocal health at risk. With a well supported voice that blends resonance and maintains balance throughout each register of your voice – a powerful tone will become effortless.
