MODULE I COURSE
ILana Martin thrives as the founder and director of New York City’s highly favored vocal facility, Vocal Workout Singing School, employing a cadre of world class teachers. Her passion lies in helping others to achieve their best and most acclaimed ‘me singing’ sound.
Born in Los Angeles, California, ILana began performing in Hollywood at the young age of 8. At just 16 years old, Martin entered Boston’s famed Berklee College of Music as the recipient of the first full scholarship offered purely for vocalists. This catapulted her into touring the world multiple times as the founder of the ILana Martin Jazz Quintet and as a supporting vocalist for Barry White, Patti LaBelle, D’Angelo, Stevie Wonder, Donna Summer, Norman Brown, Rafael Martos and many others. Martin’s unique vocal style has been linked to Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, and Alicia Keys, while her characteristic hold of phrasing and lyric delivery is singular. A master of soul vocal performance, Martin is also an accomplished pianist and songwriter. She has performed and written songs for both stage and film, was signed with Polygram Records, and has toured as a solo voice and jazz piano artist.
Today, Martin is a seasoned voice teacher, songwriting coach, and R&B and gospel voice expert that wows audiences with her powerful tone and storytelling. Martin founded the Vocal Workout Singing School in New York City’s Soho in 1998, which is thriving under her direction as New York City’s highly favored vocal facility, employing a cadre of world-class teachers.
ILana Martin has developed a method for the instruction of Soul Singing, unmatched in its effectiveness. The Vocal Workout’s dynamic voice instruction is compassionate and loving as it fosters a connection between the students and their own vocal power. It enhances the students’ vocal gifts through mouth placement, dynamics, holistic vocal health and song selection coaching.
Martin’s passion lies in helping others to achieve their best and most authentic resonance, guiding them to share their unique life story. The path to becoming a soul vocalist is different than that of a classical vocalist. She focuses primarily on the sound resonating from the unique life story of each singer, bringing it out into the world.
