Today was one of those days that you could question the process of teaching used at the Victorian College of Arts. But what you couldn't question is its effectiveness, the result.
Each week we have a vocal workshop in front of our peers and today I was asked by my teacher to "embrace my inner Drag Queen" and spew forth a voice full of breath. Of course, many great one-liners eschewed from many including our teacher.
The result: Greatly improved onset of sound and this is really the true philosophy of the VCA Vocal department; forget the how and focus on the result you want, once achieved we can break down what is going on and reproduce the result on demand.
According to many in the industry this flexibility to change quickly and on demand is very much a VCA quality that is greatly appreciated by many in the industry.
So for me it is just a matter of coming up with a Drag name, any ideas?
