What Are Singing/Voice Lessons? What Happens?

Singing Lessons or Voice Lessons

Singing lessons are, of course, lessons that teach you how to sing, but what happens during a singing lessons?

Every lesson is going to be a little different and each teacher has their own style. Some teachers prefer to sing through a song chosen by the teacher to fit the student and work on matching sounds by ear. Some teachers start with a warm-up meant to teach technique and then work on a song chosen by the teacher with specific technique goals in mind. Some teacher work on specific anatomy of singing and use the science behind how the voice works to teach the singer control with barely any work on specific songs until the very end of the lesson as a final step in the technique. There are as many different styles as their are voice teachers, so don't be afraid to take one lesson from any given teacher and moving onto another until you find the right match for you. If you don't think you're learning anything from a voice teacher, that doesn't make you a bad singer or unteachable, it just means your learning style and their teaching style didn't mesh.

For myself, I start every lesson with a simple warm-up. I listen to hear what the singer is doing and then work on new or revisited technique based on their sound and our history. We start with explanations of how and why, move to vowels, then to words, and then finish with a song. This is to keep as many elements out of the practice of technique as possible. If you're not comfortable singing on your own, I'll sing with you. If you have trouble matching pitch, I have ways to teach you how to do that. Don't have a song in mind? I'll find one for you and teach you. Know exactly what song you want to work on? I'll learn how to play it on the spot, use a karaoke track, or even just pull up Spotify/YouTube.

A voice teacher should never judge you for your sound and is always out to make you happy with your voice. If you have questions or don't understand something, a good teacher won't judge you. In fact, I love it when my students ask me questions and started writing these blogs so that my students could have reference points in case they learn better through reading or don't remember something and its too late in the day (or early) to text me. Not only that, but I love it when my students fight back on something, as long as its with the desire to understand. If something doesn't make sense or I suggest you try something and you don't think it sounds good, tell me. If I'm singing and you think I sound bad demonstrating the technique, tell me. I won't be offended and will either use it as a teaching opportunity or use it to improve myself. Interested in starting lessons?
