Singing is the most personal of all musical talents and can be a bit scary for beginners, but with practice, you will become confident in your voice and begin to reach new levels in your abilities.
Singing requires much more craft and dedication than one might assume, and although styles of singing vary, the basic principles of singing remain the same, regardless of genre. While our voices can be just another musical instrument at our disposal, there is one obvious distinction that makes it very different from the other types of musical instruments: our voices are living instruments. This means that they can be temperamental and require special training and care. Allergies, diet and health habits can all have an impact on your vocal ability. By taking voice lessons you will learn proper warm up and breathing techniques just like professional singers. Custom singing instruction will capitalize on your individual strengths and help you develop your range, style and vocal ability.
Here are some advantages to taking private in-home singing lessons:
- Fully customized lessons – no “one size fits all” lessons
- No traffic and no scheduling hassles – take lessons in your best learning environment
- Learn to sing from a certified, local vocal instructor
Private voice lessons give you the complete attention that may be otherwise overlooked in a choir or group setting. Our vocal coaches are educated and trained to equip you with the skills you will need to reach your singing goals!
Why take lessons?
When you first start learning how to play an instrument, holding a note for a couple of beats or hitting a high pitch feels like an amazing achievement. As you practice and become a more experienced musician, making music enjoyable, not only to your ear but to others’ as well, is a very rewarding experience. Taking music lessons from an experienced instructor who knows how to assess individual skill levels and tailor your lessons to your particular ambitions will help you meet your goals much faster.
Here are some other ways you can benefit from learning an instrument:
- Studies show that learning an instrument increases self-confidence, memory, and has proven to relieve stress.
- Music lessons have been found to improve how the brain processes the spoken word. This finding could lead to improving the reading ability of children who have dyslexia and other reading problems.
- A study by E. Glenn Schellenberg at the University of Toronto at Mississauga, as published in a 2004 issue of Psychological Science, found an increase in the IQs of six-year olds who were given weekly piano and voice lessons.
- Studies have shown that students who play instruments are often better in math and achieve higher grades in school than students who don’t. Source: Friedman, B.
