KIM WOOD SANDUSKY is one of the most influential vocal coaches in the global music industry.

Industry giants Sony, Columbia, Warner Brothers, Hollywood Records, Disney, EMI, MCA, RCA, Motown, and Capitol (just to name a few) have placed their trust in Kim to push their Artist's vocal capabilities to their ultimate potential. Whether the Artist needs to increase range, build breathing stamina, develop a particular style, or is experiencing vocal medical problems such as hoarseness on tour or in the recording studio, Kim has an intuitive gift and the expertise to handle Artists with care, while never interfering or covering up their natural talent.
A Texas native, Kim now resides in Nashville. Her vocal studio is on "Music Row," the heart of Music City's recording district and home to major record labels and publishing companies. She began her career as a performer, traveling across the United States with other Artists. Along the way Kim discovered that singers always came to her for help with their songs and vocal issues, and she realized her true calling was to be a vocal consultant. Kim provides vocal consulting for both signed and independent Artists and offers Artist development to signed and unsigned talent. Performing Artists in various Broadway shows in New York as well have sought her advice. Kim also produces in the recording studio. One of her many vocal projects is the Grammy Award-winning "Survivor" album by Destiny's Child. Kim is an active voting member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences the organization that decides the Grammy Awards.
Drawing on her extensive knowledge and experience with vocal Artists, Kim has formulated and trademarked a progressive method called "Vocal Builder Technique TM" that meets and exceeds the standards of today's competitive music industry. "Vocal Builder" is an approachable, practical, and easy-to-use series on DVD designed for the professional or anyone who wants to sing. By taking advantage of the Vocal Builder program-either on DVD or one-on-one in her Nashville studio-Kim is certain she can help vocal artists reach for their dreams and beyond.

Kim consults with the artist to create their defined style, develop their musical ear, rhythmic skills, phrasing and lyric diction to enhance their natural talent. Kim keeps the natural talent but her proven methods work to produce more endurance, vocal growth and a competitive vocal style. These are the keys to success for the developing artist.

Studio Vocal Production
In the twists and turns of the recording industry, it is invaluable to call upon the expertise and savvy of Kim Wood Sandusky in the recording process to produce the vocals. While the primary goal of Kim's inclusion in the recording process is to attain the best performance of the artist, she is also helping to create the unique character and unique style to new levels for the artist, thus keeping their career competitive and protecting the health of the rigorous usage of the voice during the recording. For these reasons, her vocal production is of immeasurable value to the industry at large and to artists in particular.
Tour Rehearsals, Phone Sessions, and Skype Sessions
Another valuable asset to an Artist is to have Kim evaluate Tour Rehearsals either online with Skype or in person. She can check any vocal problem areas of the show and execute the proper solutions. Kim works hand in hand with the choreographer as well as the sound engineers to prepare the show for excellence.
Kim also works with signed and unsigned artists globally over the phone. She can listen to the artist and develop their talent, and correct vocal problems. This custom evaluation for vocal builder technique is recorded on CD and emailed or mailed to the singer. Kim also is called to aid over the phone with issues in the recording studio process to help make time loss minimal.
The development of talent for record labels, manager, producers, and individual singers is Kim's forte. Too often artists discover hindrances which can put a promising career on hold, but with Kim's help, these issues can be dealt with early on. Kim has been a vocal coach for over 20 years and has developed the Vocal Builder Technique. This technique builds the singing muscles as well as builds the breathing stamina. She will achieve in her vocal consulting process the expansion of the artist's range, and build each section of the voice from the chest voice, middle voice, to head voice with smooth and strong transitions. Kim will work the phonetic muscles to ensure great clarity in singing lyrics and enhance the richness of the artist's tone. She will also develop breathing stamina to reach control to handle sustaining and achieving pitch accuracy. Kim can accommodate artists who cannot get to her office by working over the phone for Phone Sessions or Skype for Skype Sessions. She achieves the same quality as though the artist were standing in her vocal studio.
Occasionally, even the most seasoned professional artist can experience physical limitations in the pursuit of their craft. Post-concert hoarseness, fatigue from marathon recording sessions or nodules on the vocal cords that render the voice helpless in singing. At times like these, artists and record labels from around the globe call on the expertise of Kim Wood Sandusky. Kim carefully analyzes the voice in question to identify problematic areas that have caused the trouble. Once the problem is identified, Kim will apply the appropriate corrective measures to regain the artist's potential. Kim's number 1 message to artists is drink plenty of water daily to stay hydrated. Dehydation is one of the main causes of vocal problems. When livelihoods are on the line, doesn't it make sense to protect an artist's most valuable asset.
