The LLB Vocal Studio Scholarships

Calling Logan’s Gifted Young Singers

Opening up opportunities for Logan City’s Youth

At The LLB Vocal Studio, Lisa is encouraging senior secondary students across the city of Logan to dream big, with the LLB Vocal Studio Scholarships.

The LLB Scholarship is about giving back… Lisa’s 30-year career has enabled her to now give back to the community by sponsoring these two vocal scholarships.  The objective of each scholarship is to encourage local young singers who demonstrate natural ability, interpretation and delivery of vocal performance.

Due to high demand, students will be chosen based on the criteria below with the chance to receive six-months FULL Tuition at the LLB Vocal Studio in Shailer Park.    

Funding for this award has been provided by Lisa Lockland-Bell in an effort to nurture and encourage the extensive talent within Logan City.

Program

Year 8 to 12 students living in and or attending school in Logan City who are interested in a career as a singer are invited to apply for this wonderful opportunity. The two successful applicants will receive a full Scholarship of a six-month training program beginning every six months.  Next round begins July 2020.

Following this six-month journey, the winners will walk away with;

  • New behaviours and hard wiring around singing.
  • A positive training experience.
  • Their own unique and powerful vocal style.
  • A stronger vocal technique including:  Tone, phrasing, breath support, posture, interpretation etc.
  • A greater awareness and relationship with their body.
  • Healthy Mindset.
  • Clear career path.
  • Performance strategies: The ability to impact their audience, from the moment they step on stage.
  • Understanding of how to deliver their song and effectively connect with their audience.
  • Professional stage craft techniques.
  • Understanding of  how to release the voice sending them forward in their career.

Benefits

Singing is an incredibly intimate art form: Sharing your thoughts, feelings, emotions and beliefs.

The value of Lisa’s teaching goes beyond just teaching a good vocal technique. Students will learn how to overcome mindset blockages, life challenges and negative self-talk, this then allows the physical, emotional and psychological freedom needed to discover the true voice.

A human voice has the power to move, to change lives, to touch something great in us all and to make us recongnise in ourseles what it is to be human.

The experience of participating in a live performance is unique and unforgettable, and should be available to all.
