Voice Lessons are such an important element of improving singing technique and building confidence to sing in front of others. In the previous article, I analyzed why online lessons may be a good option. Here are a few benefits of the IN PERSON option! Please read both and decide which option works best for YOU or YOUR CHILD.
In Person Benefits:
Being IN PERSON, you really get one on one attention in live time. Your voice is analyzed exactly as it is heard by another individual. That opinion and expertise is invaluable! We do not hear ourselves as others hear us!
Some people are just DONE with the online concept because they have to spend so much time on their computers for work or school. Zooming meetings and other online concepts are here to stay but this may be a place you can get the 'humanness' of singing back!
One on one singing in person may be less intimidating than jumping back into singing with the choir. You or your child may have gotten a little rusty over the pandemic and singing online for choir class or maybe your church or community choir (or you) took a break over the pandemic. You want to work on your skills and confidence but have the face to face interaction with another human without technology involved.
You may be ready to venture off the computer to in person singing but still fear singing with multiple people in a group. Singing lessons give you that opportunity with less of a germ pool. Build your skills and confidence to get back to it.
Many people say there is just NOTHING like hearing singing and music LIVE! If that's you, that's your option:-)
Voice Lessons, no matter how you slice it, are beneficial not only to your singing voice but for your soul! You may want to give it a try but don't know which way will work best for you. Stop and think about it and go with what feels most comfortable. I enjoy teaching both online and in person as it presents the singer in a different way and gives a variety of things to work on in lessons.
Many studios (including myself) are offering both options or the best of both worlds. You may choose or need to go back and forth! The option to primarily take IN PERSON lessons with the option to convert to ONLINE as needed can help you get into a regular lesson pattern regardless of daily life.
- Daily life patterns may change (travel for work, car broke down, to child playing a sport for one season which makes it difficult to make it to lesson on time, but can if online)
- Public health situations (COVID-19 exposure and quarantine or variants or you have a little cold but don't want to share it)
- Weather (an ice storm which leaves roads impassable but with electricity, a lesson still possible)
If we have learned anything through the pandemic, it is that things can always change! Make the move and get started singing more and being happy today with voice lessons!! Tune in next week for benefits of singing lessons in general!
