We hear music all around us; as we go about our day we may hear Bahaa Sultan belting out his latest hit on our commute to work or enjoy the nostalgic tunes of Fairouz wafting out of a mall’s speakers. These foot-tapping hits make us want to belt it out ourselves and many of us do succumb to its power and end up singing in public. Imagine though if there is a way for you to better your vocal chops and improve it to the point where you can have the confidence to stand on a stage and perform in front of a crowd.
All across Egypt are professional and seasoned vocal coaches that take on everyone from beginners to seasoned singers and help them hone the craft of vocal performance. To make your life easier, we’ve picked out the top coaches to help you become more confident and fine-tune that voice of yours.
Working as a full-time vocal coach, Verina Romany joined the Vocal Xtreem School last year. Located in Nasr City, the school had been operating since 2017; born out of the passionate drive of Sherif El Dabaa, a vocal coaching specialist with over 12 years of experience who wanted to help people tap into their vocal prowess and master the art of singing. When it comes to Romany, she has many years of experience under her belt as both a singer and vocal coach. She is the type of coach who works with students who love to sing and want to hone their craft but do so for fun rather than to transform it into a career. Her classes are catered to both kids aged 4 to 15 where she teaches them to build a foundation for their singing ability and adults aged 16 and above.
In her vocal coaching course, students would take a one-hour course with her every week for a total of 4 weeks with the entire package costing EGP 2250. To take a course with Romany and learn more about the center, you can give them a call at this number: +2 01273390005
