Coaching Austin Butler for Elvis & training teachers - Irene Bartlett returns
What does a movie musical vocal coach do?
Singer and pedagogue Irene Bartlett is back to chat with vocal trainers Gillyanne & Jeremy about coaching Austin Butler to sing Elvis in the latest movie, and how she works with singing teachers in the Pedagogy Programme at Griffith University in Brisbane.
What was the first thing Irene needed to do when meeting Austin (or any singer) for the first time? (3.00)
What is she listening for when working with professional singers? (6.53)
How do we know whether a singer has real tension or whether they're adding it "for effect"? (12.00)
How do you teach singing teachers to become BETTER singing teachers? We're all in agreement, but on what? Jeremy clarifies (22.40)
Why might "the 5 note scale" be a problematic exercise for singers? (24.00 and 25.40)
It’s an honest conversation between vocal trainers separated by 10,000 miles but together in spirit.
