"A live performance is a conscious decision to reveal who you are through your music. This class is the product of my findings after years of being on stage. I want to help you become a truly professional performer." - Paulette McWilliams

Vocalist Paulette McWilliams has recorded or performed alongside some of the greatest voices of all time: Michael Jackson, Mary J. Blige, Celine Dion, Michael Bublé, Aretha Franklin, Lauryn Hill, Dolly Parton, David Bowie, Luther Vandross.... She brings a lifetime of wisdom as professional vocalist and coach to Vocals from A to Z, an 8-week class at The Songwriting School to help singers become complete vocalists.

When Aretha died last year, we all lost an icon. Paulette lost a friend and colleague. This is the level of experience you have access to in Paulette.

"I am a vocalist, not a singer," Paulette remarks proudly. "I can do anything with the voice: demos, jingles, front person, background singer, close harmony duets, part of a choir, you name it. And it is my great joy to help others find that freedom and confidence in their own voices."

Paulette McWilliams has made a career as an artist herself and as one of the most in-demand background vocalists of the past many decades. The Songwriting School of Los Angeles is proud to offer this interactive class in group and solo vocals for intermediate to experienced vocalists.

  • Enrolled students additionally receive a private one-on-one lesson with Paulette
  • class members may work with Paulette additionally beyond the private lesson this Fall and outside of class for a reduced rate from her Private Lesson rate

From Paulette:

"This is a class for singers who want to learn how to be ready to sing for whatever the job may call for.  The class will help you understand and prepare for the different opportunities for earning a living as a professional in this music business, while growing both into your own unique voice as the front person and into your roles as a background voice. 
This is an interactive, genre-less class that involves lots of personal coaching, both in class and with an additional lesson, as well as group singing. You will grow as a complete vocalist.
This will be a forum and interactive singing class to build the toolbox and understanding to be a freelance vocalist.
We will begin with and develop vocal discipline (vocal warming ups, diaphragmatic breathing, & keeping your body in good shape, and a practice ritual) so you will always feel ready for whatever the session or performance calls for.
A freelance professional vocalist knows how to approach and sing  
1. Backgrounds (from arrangements to execution)
2. Demos 
3. Phrasing
4. Duets
We will interactively work on 
how we listen for and execute...
1. Harmonies
2. Unisons 
3. Blending
4. Step outs
5. Arranging
...and so much more.
Class will include recording and performing opportunities that combine the skills and concepts of the class.
Limited to 10 singers. Questions? 818-848-7664 or CONTACT US with your questions.
