SINGING



DHPC THREE YEAR PROGRAM


The DHPC Singing Program is designed over a three year progression (don’t worry, its not a three year lock in!) with each year its own self contained structure.

Students enrolled in our Singing Program participate in weekly group classes and optional private extension sessions.

This unique experience offers singers the chance to workshop a song on a weekly basis with a DHPC coach and their peers. They perform on stage with a mic, sound system and each artist receives industry grade feedback on their performance. This class teaches vocal technique, emotional connection, stagecraft and performance skills, harmony work and improvisation.

Students have the opportunity to workshop their chosen song in a safe, supportive environment, where they can push themselves weekly in a group simulated live performance setting.

Each year is broken into seven filmed performance points, including an end of year Showcase. These performance points occur every six weeks so that each student gets to perform live regularly throughout the year. That’s twenty-four filmed performance opportunities across the three years. Showcases will be held at the prestigious Chapel Off Chapel and feature live musical accompaniment from Melbourne’s finest musicians.

In addition to these performances, students receive additional supplementary content to broaden their eduction and prepare them for transition into the industry.

  • FRIST YEAR: We facilitate a Seminar with a Branding Expert so you can learn all about standing out in the crowd and how to cultivate your own personal brand.
  • SECOND YEAR: We provide Songwriting & Production Workshops with DHPC Coaches to guide you through the writing and recording of your very own original song.
  • THIRD YEAR: We get you ready with a professional photoshoot and Industry Workshop with a leading Music Talent Booking Agency.

Plus each year will include a mid-year Self Care Intensive with performing arts life-coach Will Centurion, providing the skills to sustain a long, successful and happy career.


PRIVATE EXTENSION CLASSES

Once you have selected your foundation group class or classes, you will then have exclusive access to private coaching with one of our DHPC industry coaches! In these focused one on one lessons, you will have the opportunity to refine your material at a new level of technical precision and detail. We specialise in all vocal styles and run classes that cater to beginners, intermediate and working professionals. We develop technical excellence in tone variation, vocal acrobatics, phrasing, vibrato, breathing technique, dynamics, style, vowel modification, mic technique, movement, stagecraft and ability to support singing while dancing. We also impart leading-edge international acting techniques to infuse emotional connection in each performance.

PRIVATE SONGWRITING

Within this unique one on one class, our singers receive a full education on songwriting and music production alongside a professional assessment of their current songwriting skills. We encourage our students to bring a lyric or melodic idea to class and collaborate with their coach to create fully produced original songs throughout the year. This unique opportunity is a way to create a Soundcloud account, Youtube recordings of originals or covers and finished tracks for original music videos whilst gaining a comprehensive knowledge of copyright and the business legalities of the music industry. This approach allows our artists to create a catalogue of professional, original demos that can be presented to record companies.
