Full Vocal Presence with Beth Nielsen Chapman

August 25-27, 2016 • Nashville, TN

Limited to 20 Students

This workshop is filled.

Email Lydia if you have any questions.


This workshop of Beth’s is designed to help you tap into the power of singing with least effort from the natural tone of your speaking voice.

Beth will work with you through three basic vocal testing grounds:

  • Day One will be focused on singing acoustically and finding the sweet spot in your voice in an unplugged situation.
  • Then we’ll head over to Ocean Way Studios and work in the studio setting, learning to work with a microphone, headphones and communicating with an engineer.
  • From there you’ll have the opportunity to adapt what you’ve learned in a live performance environment, from sound check to the spotlight and ending with an evening performance.

The 3-day workshop will be held at Scarritt Bennett and Ocean Way Studios on Music Row, which is walking distance from Scarritt-Bennett campus. Since it’s only two blocks away, you could see about accommodation availabilities there [Scarritt Bennett Accomodations], or at nearby hotels: Embassy Suites, Best Western Music Row, Hilton Home2 Suites, and Hampton Inn.

We will start the evening of Wednesday, August 24 with a dinner cooked by Beth, and the workshop will include visits from guest singers and producers, the experience of recording your newfound vocal skills in a world-class studio, the chance to perform in a live sound setting, and a closing night dinner together. Plus all of the unscripted fun, laughter and surprises that always swirl around Beth!

About Beth Nielsen Chapman:


A renowned writer of many hits for other artists as well as herself (including “This Kiss” for Faith Hill, “Nothin’ I Can Do About It Now” for Willie Nelson, “Strong Enough to Bend” for Tanya Tucker, “The Color of Roses” for Bette Midler, and “Here We Are” for Alabama), Beth Nielsen Chapman is in demand as a songwriting teacher and creative coach, having taught at such schools as the Royal Scottish Academy of Music & Drama, the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts and Berklee School of Music in Boston, and numerous festivals and venues internationally.

Beth presents her unique and inspiring style of teaching in much the same way she approaches creativity itself. She will explore the art of singing from the center of your most powerful effortless center of communication. Your speaking voice!  With no more effort than speaking, we will open up to new ways to perceive the delivery a song. Whether you plan to make it to American Idol or you just want to sing the clearest vocal on your work-tapes that show your song when you play it or a demo singer, this is a great class even for those who don’t consider themselves singers.  It’s a wonderful way to take singing to another level. In addition, we’ll be learning to dive for melody using the voice during the writing process.
