What are singing lessons like?

  • Receiving constructive feedback and criticism from the instructor.

Before your first voice lesson, you can ask your instructor what you should expect and how to prepare.

How many singing lessons do I need?

It depends on what you’re hoping to accomplish with your singing lessons. Consult a highly rated vocal instructor to determine how many lessons you should take — and how often you should take them.

Sarabeth is personable, knowledgeable and easy to work with! She individualizes warm ups and lessons so that you can achieve the voice YOU want. I can already see a difference in my technique after just 5 lessons.

I was a little nervous to be working with a new voice teacher but after meeting her I felt at ease. She is very patient with me. I look forward to more lessons with her.

This was my first ever vocal lesson and I am so happy I chose Arabella. I wanted someone who found the deeper meaning of music and really understood the purpose of our gifts. In my experience I was really able to understand my voice a little more and I learned how to relieve the strain. We focused on agility and breathing which I am now comfortable with. I know overtime my voice will be so much more mature. I really appreciate how much I learned in my first lesson.

Chloé dives right in to the meat of the matter, when it comes to her method of teaching! "Let's find out where your voice is!" She definitely does what she adversities, in fine tailoring the lesson for "you". She has a way of making new technique and exercises exciting, and is very encouraging along the way. I highly recommend her and am looking forward to my "second" lesson with her.

Katie is a skilled voice and piano teacher. It has been difficult for me to find a voice teacher who actually plays the piano...thank goodness I found Katie! I have been singing for years and I needed a strong vocal coach to help prepare me for an audition that required me to learn a challenging song. With Katie’s patience and enthusiasm she helped me learn a piece I was totally lost on. I’ll definitely go back to Katie for future lessons!

Today was my first lesson. It was exactly what I was hoping for and more. Chloé was great at creating visuals to help my voice travel better, more smoothly, and with ease. Where I could have very easily felt nervous and scared, she helped create an environment that was encouraging and comfortable instead. I’m so happy and really excited for my next lesson, I can already feel the difference in my sound and my confidence.

I've been working with Tanya on a bi-weekly basis for several months, and even though I've had less than 10 lessons, I can already so big improvements in my voice. I've been a musician for many years, but never had any formal vocal training, which means I came in with a lot of bad habits that Tanya has been helping me identify and change. I also love how the lessons don't only focus on exercises, but also allow time to work on songs as well, making it easy to take what you're learning and apply it to a more practical situation. Would definitely recommend!
