Music for Education & Wellbeing podcast

In this new podcast, Anita Holford, co-editor of Music Education Works, is talking with Annabel Williams, head vocal coach for X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent. Annabel talks about her about her route into vocal coaching, gives some insights into the support given to TV talent show contestants, shares some tips and advice for vocalists, and talks about her The Vocal Coach app for singers of all levels wanting to develop their voices, or use singing for fun and wellbeing

We talk about:

  • Annabel’s route into her current roles – through the National Youth Jazz Orchestra, session singing, private tuition, and coaching for a record company
  • how she overcame shyness and ‘earned her stripes’
  • the range of support offered to contestants on X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent
  • using The Vocal Coach app – a tool for singers to use anywhere, with 18 exercises explained by Annabel on video, plus bespoke backing tracks and tempo slider
  • the wellbeing and vocal benefits of breathing
  • the importance of being yourself and finding your unique sound
