Music Director’s Vocal Coaching Toolkit

A one day in-person workshop

The Musical Director’s Vocal Coaching Toolkit is a full-day, face to face workshop that covers relevant vocal anatomy and physiology, vocal language, voice care and strategies to coach both an ensemble and individuals on achieving blend, pitch, desired vocal sounds and stamina whilst singing, and a safe, stable speaking voice.

The MD Toolkit also covers:

  • How to instruct effective blending in your ensemble
  • Instructing your cast on how to sing in tune
  • Strategies for teaching harmonies
  • Safely projecting speaking voices
  • How to coach your cast leads to sing more dynamically
  • The vocal language to communicate effectively with your vocalists
  • What to do when the dreaded laryngitis or cold hits the cast

This workshop also provides a space for practical application of all your new knowledge, encouraging you to explore how to achieve these sounds in your own voice, so you can guide your cast towards your vocal vision.


Elle is based in South Australia; however, you can enquire to book the MD Vocal Coaching Toolkit rurally or interstate at your school or workplace.

Price is dependent on location and the number of participants.
