ABOUT: Terry Little
Terry is Long Island’s, Premier Vocal Coach. Terry’s students include several other studio owners and vocal coaches here on Long Island as well as many pro-level performing and recording artists. Terry’s students are both males and females, ages 8-64, from beginners to advanced levels.
Terry Little’s vocal lessons offer students a combination of different approaches to singing. The first is based on classical Bel Canto style singing with a focus on classical style exercises, warm-ups, and postures, placement of projection, using the body as an instrument. The second approach is the “Speech Level” singing style founded by Seth Riggs, considered by many to be the father of modern pop style singing. Speak-singing focuses on a more relaxed approach to vocalization. At times these two styles may seem at odds, but both approaches have benefits and when integrated create a well-rounded vocalist. Once students have a good foundation in both of these singing styles other styles are introduced depending on the individual student’s musical preferences. Broadway and Blues styles may both be presented as they are a strong influence on today’s popular music. Other styles are also offered such as rap, R and B, Rock, Blues, Metal, Crooning, Screemo and even Latin styles including Reggaton.
Guitarists and bassists alike will have access to a full range of equipment and pedals. Guitar and bass might seem similar, but they are completely different instruments that have completely different jobs. The music theory and notes are similar, but the technique is completely different. Students are taught to read tablature, chord charts, and sheet music. All guitar and bass students are taught basic theory, as well as how to “read” other instruments to prepare them to play in a band. There is also a full drum kit. This is especially important for bassists to learn to play along with a drummer.
In the fully equipped studio students have access to High Def Video and Protools Digital Recording. There are also several PAs systems and different types of microphones and monitors that provide students with virtual live sound experience. In the music industry today internet media becoming a primary factor in an artist’s career, Terry offers Professional quality recordings for YouTube as well as Skype Lessons.
