How does it Apply to Singing Teachers and Vocal Coaches?There are many genres of coaching and you are free to explore and discover your own pathway. You may wish to apply it to other contexts such as managing staff or developing a separate coaching wing of your business. To provide context, many of our teachers have successfully embedded skills and performance coaching into their practice as it improve performance incrementally. It emphasises the need to cultivate motivation by encouraging a clear vision of performance mastery. This is achieved in part through expanding awareness of how the learner perceives their performance, how it feels and how it sounds. Powerfully, it builds in self-efficacy through sustaining performance improvements. To achieve this, coaches can draw on verbal persuasion, somatic body awareness, vicarious learning and mastery experiences. It seeks to frame opportunities as a way of moving a learner forward and it encourages the design of multiple experiments to facilitate improvements through structuring repetition. This systematic approach enables greater success through enhanced learner responsibility. Other coaches have harnessed transformational coaching which seeks ‘revolutionary’ changes. It can be particularly powerful when applied to performance pedagogy. You will be presented with a range of theory as detailed below and you are free to explore many avenues of thinking.
