Marianne Vedder

Vocal Coach comments from Ron Browning

You have a wonderful voice! But, I am not sure you understand the story here, the pain and tears behind it. You need to study the lyric and understand the drama that is there so that your phrasing points it up. The dramatic details must flow through the voice first. Then the hands can be an extension of your phrasing, instead of your voice following your dramatic hand gestures. Over all, the entire body can calm down so that your voice can be the star. Stay calm so that the “lonely” theme in this piece has a chance. Karen Carpenter has put such a strong signature on this tune with her phrasing, so you MUST do something different to make it your own. Dig into the heart of this story and let your amazing voice tell a REAL story.
