are Adult Music Lesson Different?
There’s nothing like walking into a music lesson as an adult and being assigned material that’s clearly geared toward young kids. Adult music lessons shouldn’t be run the same way children’s music lessons are, and we take that responsibility seriously.

Why Take Music Lessons as an Adult?
If you’re a professional musician (or an aspiring one) it goes without saying that you could benefit from regular lessons. It’s important to keep your voice or instrument playing in shape and to continue to build lists of repertoire you’re comfortable auditioning and performing with. But music lessons aren’t just for pros. There are countless proven benefits to starting as an adult, even if you’re starting from the very beginning.

From Our Founder
It’s never too late to start music lessons. Some of my favorite lessons that I teach are with adults, sometimes total beginners who are blown away by their ability to learn to sing after a lifetime of believing they’re tone deaf.

No matter how advanced you get, it’s always important to keep your skills sharp—a lot of our music teachers still take lessons of their own!
Common Vocal Myths
Voice teachers only concentrate on producing an operatic sound. I’m interested in pop and rock, so lessons are not for me.
It is certainly true that some voice teachers concentrate on the classical sound. However, many successfully teach pop, rock, musical theater, R&B, metal (yes, scream-singing is a difficult, but learnable technique) and every other style out there.

Children should wait
“Voice abuse during childhood may lead to problems that persist throughout a lifetime. It is extremely important for children to learn good vocal habits, and for them to avoid voice abuse. This is especially true among children who choose to participate in vocally taxing activities such as singing, acting and cheerleading. Many promising careers and vocal avocations have been ruined by enthusiastic but untrained voice use. For children with vocal interests, age-appropriate training should be started early.”
Old dogs can’t learn new tricks. I didn’t start lessons as a kid, and now it’s too late.
Belting is bad for you, and it should be avoided at all costs. Singers should only sing in their head voices.
It is true that belting with poor technique can be damaging, but healthy belting exists. Learning to belt without constriction, by using great breath control and retracting what’s called your false vocal folds, is both healthy and widely used by artists with long careers. First and foremost, it’s important to listen to your body when you sing in any style. Singing should feel comfortable, and you should back off and regroup when you start to feel
