The Vox Singing Academy Examination and Certification process.
Examinations are not compulsory though we highly recommend that you undertake them so that you have the knowledge, peace of mind and understanding of your voice and vocal abilities.
Examinations should be undertaken once you have a full understanding and have worked through the entire course.
Please note that there are 2 examinations for the beginner and intermediate courses as there are 2 levels to these courses and 1 examination each for the advanced and professional courses.
We recommend that you have the vocal ability to execute all of the skills and scales that are contained in the course to a very good level before you sit your examination. There are NO time restraints on how long you can study the course for. We highly recommend that you take your time, learn and master each individual section of the course before moving forward to the next section in the course.
