Welcome to Keep Singing!

Your online group singing lessons & vocal coaching program.

Congratulations and welcome to the Keep Singing! group lessons & coaching program. I’m delighted to have you with us. Get ready to transform your singing. In the KS! program you’re going to be motivated, helped, emboldened, and perhaps a little pushed. But the results you’ll see over time will give you deeper confidence in both your voice and yourself, more joy in your life, greater vocal ease, and the certainty that you know what to do daily, weekly, and monthly – all year long – to grow your best voice.

First Steps

Step 1a. Complete the “getting to know you” new-client survey.

Getting to know you. Getting to know all about you. Getting to like you; getting to hope you like me.

“Getting to Know You” _ The King & I (Rodgers & Hammerstein)

Please tell me about yourself. I’ve created a little survey. Please don’t skip this survey or treat it lightly. Not only will your answers help me know your experience and goals, but they will be helping me shape the program.

You see, one of the features Keep Singing! offers – unique at this program’s price point – is our twice-monthly live group training meetings. Those meetings are just that: live – living and breathing, and changeable. For those trainings, I’ve created a long list of topics that build sequentially and will help you get where you want to go. But if I see from the survey responses that a lot of people want to know about a particular topic, struggle in similar area, or have a similar goal or question, I can address it live in one of our monthly group meetings. It might even mean I adapt one of the entire monthly meetings to cover that topic, struggle, goal, or question.

So please take a few moments to complete this survey in its entirety (and don’t forget to hit the “Submit” button at the very end):

Step 1b. Enter your info here…

This form makes sure you’re registered for Keep Singing! program emails through A Higher Note LLC’s email service. You can unsubscribe from this list any time, but I recommend you stay on it while you’re an A Higher Note LLC student and in any of our programs.

Step 1c. Then, register on the KS! membership platform…

Here, you will register for login credentials on the KS! membership area. The KS! membership area is where all of the program content is delivered, where we connect with program members, keep your program journal, and view all recorded videos. It’s our “hub.”

Get your KS! program login credentials on the GroupCoachingGenie.com – WOOHOO!


Step 2. Get Ready: Make the Time

I must dream of the things I am seeking, I am seeking the courage I lack
The courage to serve them with reliance
Face my mistakes without defiance
Show them I’m worthy
And while I show them
I’ll show me!

“I Have Confidence in Me” _ The Sound of Music (Rodgers & Hammerstein)

In the chart below, you’ll see the four monthly training opportunities that form the core of the Keep Singing! program. Note that our live trainings are all on Tuesdays, 11 AM EASTERN time, weeks 1-4 of every month–different topics each week.

Although the live trainings are the core of the Keep Singing program, don’t worry if you’re unable to attend one: they will all be recorded and saved as an unlisted video on AHN’s YouTube channel in a special playlist just for KS! members. Those links will be posted in the member area. You’ll be alerted via email each time a new video recording is posted in the members area.

I’m sure I don’t need to say this, but…

These links are for members only. Please do not share this web page, these meeting IDs, or the associated passwords with anyone who has not officially registered and paid to become a member of Keep Singing!

I highly recommend you schedule these events into your calendar now.

Note that each Zoom link requires a password, which is also included below.

Step 3. Get Ready: Create Space

Get a binder or folder in which you can store your class materials as they are presented to you (over time). I do recommend that you print them out, although you’re welcome to approach your personal work in any way that works best for you. However, if you print them out and place them in one spot (i.e., your KS! binder), you have easy access to your worksheets & checklists. In particular, it will be helpful to have printouts of your checklists, so you can – yes – work on those sheets and, yes, check things off your checklists. You’ll want to make multiple copies of your checklists, too, so that you can track your work weekly. In the end, approach your practice and organize your work in the way that works best with your learning style.

Step 4. Get Ready: Send Video Samples to Your Instructor

Step 1 – Please record THREE SEPARATE 1-3 minute videos of you singing:

  1. A favorite piece that is a slower tempo (tempo=speed). This can be contemporary or classical. Please select a song that you believe shows off your voice. I prefer to hear you a cappella. If you’d like you can submit one version a cappella and one version with the accompaniment of your choice.
  2. A piece that is faster tempo. Can be contemporary or classical. Please select a song that you believe shows off your voice. I prefer to hear you a cappella. If you’d like you can submit one version a cappella and one version with the accompaniment of your choice.
  3. The traditional “Happy Birthday” song a cappella (no musical accompaniment – just your voice). (And, no, this is not the Beatles’ version! LOL) Here is an accompaniment version (includes playing the melody for most of the piece), in case you’d like to practice it that way.

Please use the following format in each video:

  1. Clearly state your name at the beginning of the video.
  2. Clearly state the name and composer(s) of the piece you’ll be singing.
  3. Sing the song.

Please choose among the following methods to send the videos:

  1. Send through Facebook Messenger. That link has our direct A Higher Note LLC messenger link embedded in it; so just click on the link. You must be logged into FB or Messenger to send the video.
  2. Send the video using https://send.firefox.com/ or any other secure file-sharing site you prefer. Use this email address when you send through any of these secure file-sharing sites: support@keep-singing.com.

Wrap-up:

That ought to keep you busy for a while. 😉 Have fun and enjoy the process. Don’t be nervous. These videos are not some kind of an “audition.” This simply provides me an opportunity to get to know your voice.

Your Keep Singing! instructor,
