Introduction: "...he's good egg in a very strange omelet..." -Broadway World.com I am your favorite voice coach. You will work on all aspects of your life as it pertains to singing or speaking from psychological to physical to spiritual, so you will see improvements in all areas of your life. This is what makes my coaching unique and why I also offer some life coaching services in addition to speech and singing. You get a lot of individualized attention because I keep my roster small and exclusive. Whether you are working on speech and diction or singing, or both, you will go far fast. My goal is for you to not have to work with me for a long time unless that is your desire. Most people accomplish when they want in 3 months and you will be performing at a whole new level at the end of the 3 months. I have a couple of students who have been with me for years, too, as they want to keep growing. They meet with me once every 2 weeks or once a month, or even less often. Everyone is different and I teach everyone differently depending on their personality, learning style, and goals. I never have more than 9 clients at a time. I have experience turning my own life and career around. While I have had much professional success, that was not before having to overcome a negative self image, homelessness and alcoholism, all of which were related to my mindset. I was performing with Broadway veterans, but could not see that I was a good singer. I would go to a black tie event or perform with a world class, professional choir in Midtown Manhattan, then go home to my room in a bad neighborhood and barely scrape enough together to cover subway fare. It was a very strange life and I have come a long way from that, so it's important to me to help people improve their own lives. We will utilize physical exercises to train and strengthen the tongue, lips, cheeks, and muscles in the larynx to gain more strength and control to make your speech more powerful and improve your pronunciation as well as vocal quality. Singers will get additional work to improve pitch accuracy, musicianship, projection, and musicality, among other things. You will see results from a lesson with me instantly. You will become an outstanding singer, speaker and/or excellent musician from working with me. You will get the latest in learning technology and psychology, combined with traditional voice and speech teaching, to help you skyrocket your vocal or speech technique. Who I am for Committed singers, rappers, actors, and public speakers who are looking to increase stamina, vocal power, accuracy, and expressiveness as well as people wanting to improve their overall positions in life. You receive weekly voice lessons, personalized exercise mp3s, supplementary video lessons, and personalized email lessons to help you with mindset as well as fun merchandise. Expand your range, boost your stamina, and improve your vocal quality. Blast though those barriers to give your speech and singing a quantum leap!

I’ve had only 2 lessons with Paul so far and I can already see a difference in my voice and confidence! :) I look forward to the rest of the 10 week program! Paul knows exactly what he’s doing and makes every lesson a good time! Book with Paulthevoicecoach, he’s great!

Singing Lessons

I have had such an amazing experience working with Paul! In just a few sessions, he has helped me overcome a lot of anxiety and unnecessary mental blocks to step into a place of power with my unique vocal gifts. I am noticing positive changes in my voice, my confidence, and my enjoyment in singing. My favorite part of working with him as been the large variety of approaches and techniques he uses in his coaching. He has far surpassed my expectations of what vocal coaching could be, and I am really looking forward to a long term relationship with him.
David-Paul Norman Voice Coaching's reply
Meredith, I am honored to have you as a client. It is wonderful to see your growth in just a couple of sessions. I am glad that the multi-faceted approach works so well for you. I cannot wait to see where you are down the road!

Singing Lessons

I wanted to ratchet up my performance for a reading of my work, and Paul imparted a number of techniques and mindsets that that were very helpful -- things that I wasn't even aware of until he identified them in our four sessions together. Paul is a consummate professional, and gave me the boost I needed for a very successful performance, just tonight!
David-Paul Norman Voice Coaching's reply
Robert, I am so glad to hear of your successful performance. We covered a lot in a short time and I am glad it all came together. I look forward to learning of more of your successes. Cheers!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Free 30 minute consultation. 10 week sessions are $3000. These include 10 half hour one-on-one lessons plus 10 additional lessons via email that will build on the half hour session. These include videos, mp3s, written assignments, or, possibly, a second half hour, depending on what is needed. You can take a 3 - 4 month intensive. We will meet 3 - 4 times a week and prepare a one person show. You will be directed in your song acting skills by a professional director, do your show, and I will connect you with a videographer so you will have video to send your agent, put on your website, or whatever you may need it for. at the end of the program, you will be a whole new singer and have media to distribute. Inquire about pricing for intensives. You can buy an individual session for $325 an hour or $200 a half hour. You get email support, free merchandise, warm up mp3s, personalized videos and mp3s, free master classes, a visualization course, plus email lessons when you sign up. You get far more than regular voice lessons. Results guaranteed. The first three months are establishing habits. The next three months and beyond are refining those habits, building your repertoire, and learning new levels of musicality.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First we do a free consultation via Zoom or Skype. We see where you are and get an idea where we should start and make sure we are a good fit. We will then schedule your first lesson after payment.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    14 years of teaching (started when I was a student myself). I have performed professionally in concerts across the USA. BA in music, post graduate studies at Manhattan School of Music. Studied voice with top instructors including Noelle Rodgers, Mark Oswald, Mark Janas (piano and composition), and Janina Ceasar (piano). Studied and used method acting. Ongoing studies of learning methods and psychology.
