Online music learning and community platform Artium Academy is offering a western vocals course designed and certified by their patron-in-chief Sonu Nigam, for students to learn and sing across genres of western music.
The course is delivered through personalised one-on-one online classes – for students to learn at their convenience and pace to make music learning easier and more exciting.
From the simple understanding of song selection to techniques and exercises for achieving pitch and rhythm accuracy to developing your vocal range and singing confidently in front of an audience, this performance-based curriculum is meant to provide students with a well-rounded skill set required for performing live. The students are equipped with the understanding and application of various singing styles like rock, pop blues, ballad, jazz and more.
“If I have achieved any level of vocal, artistic and performance prowess in my life and career, it’s because I have kept my mind and learning instincts open to all international musical colours and influences. Western vocal music, from classical and opera to R&B, jazz and pop, has taught me how to expand the range, tonal elasticity of my voice and give it a wide vocabulary. I have infused my lifetime of this learning into the Western Vocal Course at Artium, enabling aspirants to explore new dimensions within their voices and musicality.” said Sonu Nigam, Artium’s Patron in Chief.
“India is such a diverse demographic. You have the tier III/IV and beyond population obsessing with Hindi songs and singers but now, we’re also seeing an interest, especially among the youth, to sing in English. Young children today are easily influenced by western pop culture and music and they aspire to sing like their idols. Artium’s new western vocals course is for them! It will give each learner the tools and learnings to emulate their favourite artists and develop their own unique voice. We can’t wait to spread the joy of singing through this course,” said Ashish Joshi, Founder & CEO, Artium Academy.
The students at Artium Academy will get an opportunity to perform at the Artium Showcase, a platform for students to showcase their musical talent. On the basis of the performance, the students are first selected to perform virtually in front of the academy and their Chief of Pedagogy, Mr Ananth Vaidyanathan. The students are then trained before they perform at Artium Showcase, a live online event with a large musical audience in attendance.
