Vocal Profile Assessment Tutorial
If you’ve been around Throga for a while, you have most likely heard the term “Vocal Profile Assessment” and if you wonder what exactly that is and how it works, you’ve come to the right place.
The Vocal Profile Assessment is a short self-diagnostics assessment you take in order to understand your voice better. It divides the voice into the 7 Dimensions of Singing (Flexibility, Breathing, Intonation, Range, Tone, Articulation and Strength). Based on your answer, you’ll see your relative vocal strengths and weaknesses in a simple graph and there’s vocal exercises for every dimension, so you know what exactly you can work on based on the result you get. Now, without further ado, here’s how you take the assessment:
Put in your email address and click “Next”, then fill in the form that pops up – don’t worry, it’s super quick.
After this you get to chose whether you want to do a quick or more in depth assessment of your voice.
And now you answer the prompts and questions of the assessment, they look something like the picture below and you can choose how accurate the statement or question is in regards to your voice.
Once you are done taking the assessment, while your results are being calculated, there is a short welcome video to introduce you to the Vocal Gym. Your Vocal Profile will appear as soon as it’s done playing.
You will see the result in form of a web graph and also in percentages. Your most and least skilled dimension will be highlighted and you even have the option to write down any specific notes. There’s also a place for you to set a weekly goal of how much time you want to spend vocalizing.
Now, that you are aware of the dimensions you may want to spend more time on, you can head directly to our YouTube Playlist where we have videos with specific exercises for each dimension and publish new exercise videos for different combinations of the dimensions as well. You can see (and try) a few examples right here and now:
Vocal Profile: Intonation
Vocal Profile: Breathing & Tone
Vocal Profile: Breathing, Range & Strength
Work consistently on your voice for a few weeks and then go back and take the Vocal Profile Assessment again. When you click to view your result, you will be able to see the results from your prior test as well, with direct comparisons in every dimension to show you what improved and by how much it did. This can then serve as a guide for your voice training over the next couple of weeks, until you go back to do the assessment again.
Now that you know all that, go take the Vocal Profile Assessment, vocalize consistently and keep singing. And if you have any further questions, feel free to leave a comment and we’ll get back to you.
