Why do you sing? Why does your daughter, brother, sister, mom sing? It is something they enjoy and often something they simply have a desire and love to do (and do better)? This is why we take singing lessons.
What better time to start a journey towards singing better than when school kicks off into full gear? Students are back in the swing of things and establish new goals for the year. Auditions are coming up for the fall musical or they want to prepare ahead for those auditions in the winter. Juniors and Seniors realize they want to major in MUSIC in college- time to start preparing and get serious about audition literature.
Adults, the lazy days of summer are done and you may find new time to yourself to foster a love of singing while the kids are in school or are new to the business world and craving some fresh education. The network shows such as America's Got Talent, Nashville, The Voice, American Idol, are about to begin which give many the ‘bug’ to sing. Why not try it out?
Why should you take voice lessons in a private voice studio? Can’t everyone sing?
Almost anyone can learn to sing, but most people don’t use their voices to their full potential. Voice lessons teach singers how to control their breath and find vocal resonance to create a fuller, healthier, and more beautiful sound. Lessons also teach general musical skills and build more confident singers. The average singing student needs weekly guidance to establish a solid technique.
Should I take voice lessons with a teacher or can I really learn to sing from an online program or DVD?
Every voice and every person is different and responds differently to technique. Learning to sing demands a personal touch and ears and eyes outside of oneself. With the guidance of a live teacher, you will get direct response to what is actually heard and seen by others, not just what you hear inside your head. A live teacher can also help you explore to find what repertoire and vocal range actually suits your voice best. In a voice studio, you get one on one teaching in addition to camaraderie with other students through masterclasses and recitals.
What we hear while we’re singing just isn’t true, so we are always dependent on someone we trust to take the role of our ‘outside ears’. Renee Fleming
