These are some of the areas that he works on:

Vocal Quality: Is your voice pleasant to listen to? Are you controlling your breath, posture, and other aspects of vocal production to get a good "sound?" Does your voice sound healthy?

Intonation: Are you singing "in tune?"
The most basic definition of "singing in tune" is "matching pitch." This means you can sing the right note at the right moment in the melody.

Vocal Range: What is your vocal range? Did you find your voice type?
Vocal range is a measurement of the distance from the lowest note to the highest note that a person can sing. Vocal range is very helpful in defining a singer's voice type (Bass, Bariton, Tenor, Alto, Mezzo and Soprano), measuring vocal progress over time and choosing songs and repertoire that fit a singer's voice.

Rhythmic Interpretation: Is the rhythmic feel correct for the musical style and tempo?

Song Choice/Prep: Is the song a good song for you to sing? Is it a good audition song? Are the lyrics memorized? Do you have it in the right key?

Diction: Can we understand the words?
Diction is simply the pronunciation or enunciation of your vocal expression.

Dynamics: Are you using them to your advantage? Dynamics refers to sound level, articulations, and transitory elements such as vibrato, glissandos, or cadenzas.

Stage Presence: Do you seem comfortable on the stage? Are your attire, movements, and facial expressions all appropriate to the song and the musical setting?
