Do you want to be able to sing the high notes every time? In this interactive Zoom workshop, join Katie Riggs and Miguel Manzo and work for two hours with two of the world's most respected vocal teachers toward one significant outcome: your confident execution of the song's most impactful moment--the high notes.
Who: singers of any ability who want to better understand how your voice works, how to warm it up properly, and how to develop your instrument to be able to sing the high notes with confidence and consistency
What: 2-hr Interactive vocal technique workshop with two master teachers, complete with separate warm-ups for male and female singers, an essentially valuable instruction on the mechanics of the voice, a series of exercises for singing the high notes, and a hands-on period of instruction with 6 pre-registered singers where the instructors guide them through the high notes.
How Much: 3 ways to take part...
• 6 singers get to perform and get coached by Katie and Miguel
• attend live in real-time to vocalize along, do the warmups and exercises, ask questions, and enjoy the event experience -- AND receive full access to archived/on-demand materials
• attend on-demand only, with archive available 72 hours after the event
What Else You'll Get: in addition to the live two-hour experience, all attendees will receive access to the full videos of the event with warmup and exercises additionally broken out into separate audio to practice with daily; there are supplementary instructional videos and audio included, yours to keep and train with for years to come
Katie Riggs remarks, “This is a class like no other. We will discover how the mechanics of the voice work and how you can unlock your potential through a practical approach to sing any note in any style every time. Whether you’re singing live in class or just listening, your takeaways will be transformative. You’ll obtain tools and exercises to use immediately. Come join us!”
What if I Have Questions and I'm Not One of the 6 Performers?
Katie Riggs and Miguel Manzo will answer every (reasonable!) question submitted in the chat as well--any questions we don't get to in real time, we will record their answers and that video will be included in the workshop video materials as a bonus.
What is the value vs a private lesson? Can't I just watch YouTube tutorials?
Getting real-time feedback from two of the best coaches in the world tunes your ear and attunes your body to what true connection sounds and feels like. This workshop can become your daily workout for literally YEARS to come, and IF you decide you'd like to book a session with either of these instructors for further private study, you'll be notified as to how.
What if I Want to Be a Performer and I Am Not in the First Six to Sign Up?
We will accept a few more than 6 registrations; you will be on the Waiting List if you are not among the first 6 in the order of registration. If you do not get to perform in the workshop, you will be refunded the difference between the Performer rate and Attendee rate as it was at the time of your enrollment.
What if I Register to Be a Performer and I Am Unable to Attend or Perform on the date of the event?
You will still receive access to the workshop, but any changes after 2pm on 9/30 cannot be refunded.
What if I Register as an Attendee and discover that I am unable to attend?
We will miss you! There is profound and enduring value in the on-demands materials--not simply the replay but how the supporting materials are organized for your continued training. You will receive great value for your investment. There are no refunds after 9/30, 2pm PT.
Considered one of LA’s finest vocal coaches, Katie Riggs has been teaching voice for over twenty-two years. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Katie grew up at the knee of arguably the most distinguished and successful voice teacher in the business, her father Seth Riggs, creator of Speech Level Singing. Training her own voice since she was seven years old and working side-by-side with her father earned Katie a lifetime of training. It’s given her extraordinary vocal insight, extensive knowledge and instincts second to none.

What attracts many students to Katie is her ability to sing. She sings the technique she teaches and demonstrates exactly how to apply it. It’s this particular skill that gives Katie a unique advantage over most vocal teachers. It allows her to teach others quickly, effectively, with clarity, with authority and a tremendous amount of support.
Katie’s goal for every lesson and event is to establish great vocal technique so that her students feel free in their instrument to fully express what’s in their heart. The joy of singing is in the freedom and flexibility of your gift.
