Cups of the Heart - Music for Meditation & Healing

"Cups of the Heart is no less than a magical journey to the world of the senses-and a means to experience and understand the Tarot. Here is a 45 minute album of 14 songs that transports you on a learning experience, and a means to find peace.  There is so much to say about Cups of the Heart.  First there is the poetry.  Cups of the Heart brings sounds and instrumentation to the voyage.  But what is really outstanding is the crystal-like voice that this reviewer could listen to all day long on the way to healing, love and compassion." - Richard Fuller, Metaphysical Reviews

Vocal Builders (The Foundation) - Ear Training for Singers - Step 1

Vocal Builders provides 22 instructional tracks of basic ear training to help vocalists become better musicians so that they can sing better, feel more confident and expand their skills. Each workout step helps to build vocal technique along with harmonic strength and identification.

The steps are divided into structures similar to building a house.
• Step I -(The Foundation)
• Includes major, dorian and mixolydian scales; major, minor, diminished and augmented triads; major 7, dominant 7 and minor 7 chords

Each track has a specific scale, triad or chord to focus on with a particular vowel or vocal exercise sound. As you practice the ear training exercise maintain the vowel sound, breath support, and connection to help strengthen your technique. All exercises have a brief sung example and then you will sing along with either the piano or another instrument. All are given in female ranges but can be sung down an octave for males.
