Non english/english singer

Hey all,

my name is Stano. I have an question:

Is the signing course suitable for non english speaking singers? English is my second/third language. My native language
is one of the slavic language tribes - Slovak. There are notable differences in using tongue muscles, facial muscles, speech rhythm,
vowel placement which gives impression that it can be more challenging to take such course for non-native english speakers.

I used to sing in english language, recorded couple of demos in english language, as it was easier to sign in english language
back in the 2007. It's technically/melodically easier to sing in english language, not so easy to do it in Slovak language.

As I got older I realized that songs sung in the Slovak language for Slovak audience are more understandable and make more
sense for people who listen to me.

After band dissolved I actually quit singing for long 9years and would like to get back into shape and to sing better than
before.

Here are some songs I recorded with my band back in 2007:





My plan is to sing my own songs in Slovak language (not those songs in above links), but also I'd like to sing in band
which does covers of the famous heavy rock/metal bands.

Does the course cover also proper english speaking / pronouncing / articulation of words or vowels and how to control it?

Sorry for the long post.

Thank you for any answers.

Peace and love.

    Hey Stano, those recordings sound pretty great!

    The course does in fact cover the best ways to sing different troublesome words and vocal tract shaping the sounds to ease the strain on your voice, as well as proper vowel modifications to enable you to really increase your range safely.

    The course develops your voice from the ground up. Volume 1 creates the foundation, Volume 2 solidifies it, Volume 3 starts to develop the really fun stuff... and finally, volumes 4 and 5 do a deeper dive into the advanced materials.

    And as always, we're here to help answer any questions you may have along the way, as well as help you through any sticking points.

    Cheers,

    Phillip
