The Complete Vocal Technique (CVT) is a groundbreaking voice training method developed by Cathrine Sadolin. Though not well known yet in the US, it is widely known in Europe and utilized by professional singers, singing teachers, and actors. The techniques can be used in all styles of singing, and are highly useful for anyone interested in the voice —from professionals to beginners.
In Complete Vocal Technique the techniques are divided into four main subjects:
- THE THREE OVERALL PRINCIPLES (support, necessary twang, avoid protruding the jaw and tightening the lips)
— to ensure healthy sound production.
- THE FOUR VOCAL MODES (Neutral, Curbing, Overdrive, Edge)
— to choose the ‘gear’ you want to sing in.
- SOUND COLORS
— to make the sound lighter or darker.
— to achieve specific sound effects such as distortion, creak, rattle, growl, grunt, screams, vocal breaks, air added to the voice, vibrato, techniques for ornamentation.
