"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, a 4-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.

  • Class includes 4 nights together with group and individual instruction, on stage, filmed for your private reference. 
  • Those enrolled will be instructed what to prepare for class 1
  • Enrolled students additionally receive a separate, private 30-minute one-on-one lesson with Paulette
  • class members may work with Paulette additionally beyond the private lesson during the class and shortly after for a special 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. 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.
This class is right for me if...
  • I have been singing for a while and I am trying to elevate my skills, confidence, and tools as a performer to connect with the material, myself, and my audience.
  • I have a decent handle on my vocal instrument and I am looking to be challenged to grow as person, vocalist, and artist.
  • I am ready to push myself as a performer.
What if I'm a newer singer but I really want to work with Paulette?
Reach out to discuss your candidacy. Some less "trained" singers are ready sooner than others for this level of instruction. If you are early on your path figuring out your instrument, you might be best served taking Vocal Technique class or working with Paulette Privately.
Limited to 10 singers. Questions? 818-848-7664 or CONTACT US with your questions.
