Here what our students say

Malikah P.

Introduction to Vocals

“This course has been able to really dilute complex information in a way that does not discourage me as a singer, and instead has encouraged me to really strengthen my relationship with my voice. Although this course will not make you an amazing singer overnight it is a taster into what taking care of your instrument looks like, with incredibly helpful tips to watch out for.”

Zaire A.

Introduction to Vocals

“There is a great range of information in the different aspects of vocals, anatomy, using the voice etc. Fun activities are used at the end of modules to ensure that the user is fully engaged in the content and is able to recall relevant information from the course.”

Andy W.

Introduction to Vocals

“Overall, this gave me a really nice introduction to vocals, a topic that I didn’t know had so many aspects to it, despite having been interested in singing before. From what I learned I will definitely finish the course in my own time, and recommend it to new vocalists as well.

Meet your tutor Francesca

Francesca Confortini | Vocal Tutor | Elevate

Francesca Confortini

Francesca has been a professional singer for over ten years around Europe with a background in band fronting, backing vocals, session singing and musical theatre.  After graduating in Performing Arts at SDM (Scuola del Musical) in Milan, Italy, she began her career as a musical theatre performer starring as Carmen Diaz in the musical ‘Fame’, and toured around the country with her former band 7s8 for two years. She moved to London in 2013, where she attended the BMus course in Popular Music Performance and graduated with first-class honours. 

Francesca is a very busy gigging vocalist in different genres, fronting the gipsy jazz touring band Gypsy Dynamite, the international soul band London Soul Section, the Swingpunks Jazz Big Band, her own trio Jazz Silhouettes and her funk ensemble WSFB. She also stars in Dolce Vita Live, an Italian themed show alongside her colleague and ICMP tutor Bruno D’Ambra.

I wrote this course with the knowledge I have gathered after 13 years in the industry as a vocal performer. Fundamental signing techniques are crucial for all singers, regardless of level of ability. This course covers these fundamentals and values vocal individuality, giving you the best foundation to exercise your own unique singing voice. Working to highlight the individual qualities of your instrument was generally ignored when I began as a vocal student myself. I am excited to share the practical tips I have acquired as a professional vocalist, with a course I have designed to champion your unique voice and boost your performance skills to the next level…without sacrificing your individual style or personality.
