Trans Vocal Exploration Content Masterpost (or everything you've ever wanted to know about trans voice alteration but were afraid to ask!)

Hey there Trans Voice Explorers!!

​Everything you need to love your voice is within your grasp! But I know that it can feel overwhelming. In my course, I provide you with short, actionable videos so that you can dive into your practice and start seeing results as quickly as possible. See the outline of each module below.

My team and I will also be there to make sure you're getting the support you need. We can't wait to connect with you!

3. 8 PDF Templates and Worksheets

Because I'm a double Capricorn with an Aries moon, I love organizational systems and lists! I've created a series of templates, worksheets, and lists to support you in a successful voice practice.

Bonus #1: Vocal Anatomy Colouring Book

These printable pages will help you learn the different structures of vocal anatomy while also relaxing and focusing.

Bonus #2: The Trans Guide to Vocal Anatomy eBook

If you need direct feedback or have voice questions that you need to be answered, participants of this course are invited to join me in my monthly office hour zoom call.

What will you learn in Trans Vocal Exploration?

Below is an outline of every module included with the e-course.

Module 1: Introduction
Before we start, you will learn about your instructor, how to download the mobile app, connect to the private discord server, find accountability buddies, and get the most as you possibly can out of this course.

Module 2: Developing Awareness
Next, you’ll open up your ears to the voices around you and inside you, as well as open up your mind to your innermost feelings about your voice. The benefit of having a private teacher is they can hear things that you can’t, but with this module, you’ll learn to hear those nuances as well.

Module 3: Warming Up
Together we’ll go through an in-depth body and voice warm up to set you up for the most success in your practice. Because I know some of you are busy bees, I’ve also included a quick 5-minute warm up!

Module 4: Vocal Anatomy
You’ll understand your own anatomy in new and exciting ways! This module includes colourful vocal anatomy illustrations

Module 5: Voice Alteration Overview
This mini-module briefly goes over the four pillars of trans voice alteration: pitch, resonance, vocal fold mass, and inflection so that you have a clear map in your mind before diving in.

Module 6: Pitch
Pillar 1: Should your voice be higher or lower? The answer might surprise you!

Module 7: Resonance
Pillar 2: You’ll learn about how to brighten or darken a fundamental pitch by modifying your vocal tract and vibrating your muscles and bones.

Module 8: Vocal Fold Mass
Pillar 3: You’ll learn how to thicken or thin your voice by controlling the adduction and abduction of your vocal tissue.

Module 9: Inflection
Pillar 4: You’ll use the previous three pillars to modify the contour and stressed words of your sentences in speech.

Module 10: How to Practice
In this final module, you will design your own practice regimen or use the included templates to help guide your practice into the far future. This module includes many strategies for practice so that you’re always engaged and always improving!


Looking at this list, I'm realizing that I went a little ham for my first ever e-course 😅

But, I really really wanted to get this right and do right by my community. I hope you like it! If you want to learn more about Trans Vocal Exploration, click here!
