[/third_layout] [23_layout] [h3 class=””]We’re here to teach you to sing what you want to sing.[/h3]

Whether you’re pursuing a Grammy award or a pitch-perfect rendition of ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star,’ we’ll listen to your goals and lay out a plan to get you where you want to go. When you take singing lessons from us, you’ll grasp the technical, creative, and practical sides of singing.

[/pagetitle] [h4 class=”” span=””]1. Great Singing Starts with Great Technique[/h4] Singing requires focus, coordination and strength. At its simplest, singing means producing music in your head and reproducing it with your vocal folds and lungs. Numerous skills go into making this happen, of course, and you’ll work toward mastering them.
[h4 class=”” span=””]2. Creativity is Key: Make the Song Yours[/h4] No two interpretations of the same song are alike, and we think it should stay that way. Creativity in singing is about experimenting with different vocal factors until you discover your own personal style. We’ll teach you how to intelligently tweak your songs to make them yours.
[h4 class=”” span=””]3. Tackle the Tricks of the Trade[/h4] While we don’t require our students to learn real-world skills like songwriting, auditioning, and self-accompaniment, we think it’s important to offer them as options. When you’re ready, we can take you beyond the basics to help you pursue a variety of musical spheres, including the stage, the recording booth, and the concert hall. [/row] [/pagelayout] [pagelayout version=”white”  class=”padbottom60″] [pagetitle subtitle=””] What to Expect from Voice Lessons
[/pagetitle] [h3 class=”” span=””]Each student we teach is unique, but you can generally expect voice lessons to go something like this:[/h3] [row] [half_layout] [h4 class=”” span=””]Warm Up Your Voice[/h4]

Lessons usually begin with a warm-up, although more experienced students can choose to warm up at home. Warm-ups serve two purposes: they help you develop technique without bogging you down with lyrics and a melody, and they get your vocal folds nice and pliable for the second part of your lesson.

[/half_layout] [half_layout] [h4 class=”” span=””]Learn Complementary Skills[/h4]

A third, optional part of the lesson addresses the more practical skills we’ve addressed. This is the time you’d practice your song with a microphone, discuss audition interviews, or even learn to accompany yourself on guitar or piano.

[/half_layout] [/row] [row class=”padbottom20″] [half_layout] [h4 class=”” span=””]Sing the Songs You Want[/h4] The second part of your lesson applies the techniques you learn to the songs you want to sing. You’ll work on one or a few songs per lesson in the style of your choosing. This is where you learn to interpret songs and develop your own unique voice. [/half_layout] [half_layout] [h4 class=”” span=””]Keep Learning[/h4]

When the lesson is over, we’ll give you a practice plan for the week and a recording of your lesson. That way, your next lesson can be even better than your first!

I’m interested in pop and rock, so lessons are not for me.[/h4] MYTH. 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. [h4 class=”title4″ span=””]Children should wait till puberty till they begin voice lessons. Anything earlier than that can damage their voices[/h4] MYTH. While children should not work rigorously to extend their range before puberty, kids should absolutely start voice lessons early. Think of it this way: if your child shows interest in singing, she or he will sing, regardless of whether signed up for lessons. Wouldn’t it be better to form good habits and healthy technique early? The Pennsylvania Academy of Otolaryngology has this to say about childhood voice lessons:

“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.”

[/half_layout] [half_layout] [h4 class=”title4″ span=””]I can’t carry carry a tune. I’m hopeless and tone-deaf.[/h4] MYTH. Only a tiny fraction of the population is actually tone-deaf. There’s a lot of coordination and muscle memory that goes into singing. A lack of visual and auditory feedback makes it even harder to develop this coordination. There’s nothing magical about learning to sing. It’s all about diligence and practice, and almost everyone can learn. [h4 class=”title4″ span=””]Old dogs can’t learn new tricks. I didn’t start lessons as a kid, and now it’s too late[/h4] MYTH. There is nothing physical or mental standing in the way of your learning. Adults can make astounding improvements just like kids if they practice diligently and regularly. [h4 class=”title4″ span=””]Belting is bad for you, and it should be avoided at all costs. Singers should only sing in their head voices.[/h4] MYTH. It is true that belting with poor technique can be damaging, but healthy belting exists. Learning to belt without constriction, by loosening up 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 tension.

Why Your Throat Hurts When You Sing for a Long Time

Have you ever sung for a long time, using the best technique you can muster, and still find that your throat hurts after a while? A lot of singers will assume that they're singing "incorrectly" when they reach this point. Well good news, my friends. Your voice can...

Should You Really Sing From Your Diaphragm

There’s a huge misconception among singers and even otherwise really great voice teachers that you should “sing from your diaphragm.” But where did that come from, what do people mean when they say it, and what should you do instead? Is there any truth to the phrase,...
