Vocal Control

– Newcomers who simply want to discover their vocal ability.

By discovering or rediscovering your voice, Velveta Thompson will help you to unleash your creative potential as a singer, whether you have sung professionally or not.

  • “I’m an absolute beginner.”
  • “I have had vocal lessons but want to learn how to improvise.”
  • “I ‘sing a tune’, but I need improvement from breathing technique to holding the pitch.”
  • “I have sung for years, but need re-motivating.”
  • “I would like to learn how to ad-lib (singing outside the confines of the melody)
  • “I sing on a worship team, but would like to explore the possibility of being a worship leader.”

Songwriter Artist, vocalist & Painter

Vel is an intuitive vocal coach with an angelic voice who understands how to not just improve technical ability but has insight on how to teach confidence and conviction whilst building character in the vocalist. Although Vel has coached vocalists from coast to coast and has worked with celebrities and many artistes of note, she remains a down-to-earth and personable tutor. I have had the pleasure of being coached by and working alongside Vel and her coaching techniques are second to none. Highly recommended!
