The Vocal Educator Toolkit (VET) is a 5-week, live & online, holistic, evidence-based, professional development vocal course that has been created exclusively for vocal teachers, people who want to become vocal teachers and singers who want to know more about their voice.
When you join the VET you alos gain access to the VET Community, an online Facebook group of all past VET participants; where you can discuss voice with vocal educators from all over the world!
The Vocal Educator Toolkit It is run by voice specialising Speech Pathologist and Vocal Coach, Elle Nichelle who runs VocaLab Voice Clinic in Adelaide, Australia. During the VET you will explore vocal anatomy, physiology, warm-ups, assessments, vocal trouble-shooting, exercises, counselling strategies, common and uncommon voice pathology (nodules, polyps, laryngitis) and how they present, and when and who to refer to when you suspect something is different about your student’s voice!
The VET has also been created with introverts in mind! Yep, you heard me. No on the spot questions, no pressure to ‘know it all’, you get to learn in a safe, inclusive environment with no fear of being ‘called out’ in front of others (Elle is a massive introvert too BTW).
Included in the Vocal Educator Toolkit is a 30min 1:1 professional development consult via zoom with Elle. This is where you can ask all your pressing voice questions that you may not wish to ask in front of the other participants (introverts, I got you!).
A lesson with Elle focuses on creating balance between the vocal mechanisms of breathing, phonation and resonance and helping you understand how your voice functions. She specialises in troubleshooting vocal issues (especially belt) and utilises evidence-based Speech Pathology voice rehabilitation to help you create a sustainable singing voice. She also recognises how past negative experiences with singing teachers and performances can have a debilitating effect on your vocal-confidence. Elle is warm, positive, holistic and empowering, and you will leave each lesson feeling accomplished and supported.
Musically, Elle has an extensive knowledge of genres (contemporary, jazz, musical theatre, r&b, soul and rock). She works with professional vocalists and amateur vocalists to prepare for auditions, performances and gigs. This includes vocal care before and after shows and how to advocate for your voice in a workplace. She also consults on business and brand building.
