Hey guys welcome back again to Ken TamplinVocal Academy, where the proof is in the singing. I'm here with my amazing student, Tori Matthieu,and we're doing takedowns of different songs today. We're going to do Amy Winehouse.The song's called Valerie. We'll do it first. We'll talk about it after, likewe always do. Let's rock! Amy Winehouse. Whooh! Nice job, girl! Man, that was good.Thank you. All right, so basically, we're doing a lotof different stuff, from Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouseâ€¦ And what's interestingabout this is not so much that we're just doing a bunch of cover songs, but it's howTori finds herself in the song, and actually
represents that art with her own touch, herown flair, but to be able to sing in a lot of different styles, because what this doesis to give you a lot of tools for your toolbox for singing. So, we're going to be working upon, actually, some original material, too, so be watching out for that. Anyway, this is KenTamplin Vocal Academy.

Bekah Cork BMus Music 2011
I'm Bekah, I did music at the University ofBirmingham and I graduated in 2011 and I know work for CBSO. Being involved in everything that's outsideof your degree, I've found that I learnt a lot about life outside of lectures. I obviouslylearnt a lot in lectures as well! Mixing with as many people from different walks of lifeand different parts of the country. It exposed me to all the right things sogoing to concerts and learning about music and actually learning a lot about repertoire,particularly in lots of the lectures in first year, you have to learn about lots of repertoireand be able to talk about it and now I go
to work and I say 'I know all about this piece!' I work for the CBSO, which is the City ofBirmingham Symphony Orchestra and I'm the Assistant Orchestra Manager. I've worked therefor 2 years so I was already working there when I was a student. A big part of my jobis running auditions for orchestra positions collating applications, running auditionswhich is actually good fun, really, really tiring. Always wear comfortable shoes, youspend most of your day running around. It's really rewarding, seeing people whenthey do well in their auditions. Looking after them before their auditions. They're usuallyso nervous, a big part of my job is a parttime
counselling role, telling them to enjoy themselvesand that the panel is on their side, which they always are. Yes. I was in the right place at the righttime. Studying in Birmingham meant that I could do work experience with the CBSO whileI was still studying. If I'd been somewhere far away that didn't have an orchestra itwould have been a lot more difficult for me to do it alongside the two. Living in SellyOak and being able to travel into town was really helpful. Make a complete nuisance of yourself in agood way to everyone. Contact everyone. Show
complete eagerness to do absolutely anything.Especially when you're starting out. The job market is so fierce now that really you needto have everything and more. Just contact everyone, network as much as you can. Do relevantthings within uni and outside. Especially in the Music department, there's the MusicSociety to get involved with, there's the Summer Festival of Music which produces anamazing set of concerts just at the end of the summer term. So, when you're relaxingafter finishing exams, get involved with that. It's possibly the busiest couple of weeksof my life in the second year! I should think working on the festival, workingon the Summer Festival of Music, in my second
year was incredibly rewarding. I got to meet,I made such good friendships through the people I was working with and although it was anincredibly stressful week, I really got stuck into it and it's a really good fun thing toget involved with and it set me up really for what I was going on to do. Yes and I'm very jealous! It wasn't therewhen I was studying and all the things that have changed, I'm quietly bitter!.
