Serving All Ages

Voice lessons are open to all ages and levels, and for children ages four and up. We also specialize in lessons for adults. For almost ten years, we have helped thousands on their musical journey. Our talented, friendly, and qualified team has experience from teaching kids to learn their favorite Disney song, all the way to advanced vocalists preparing for their broadway audition. We can help you learn any style or genre of music, and lay the foundation for proper vocal technique in the process. Learning to sing has enormous benefits both for kids and adults, including improved self esteem and confidence. You will learn good breath control, how to shape vowels, proper posture, consonants and how to perform confidently. More advanced vocalists may study how to incorporate dramatic elements such as acting. Our instructors are trained to not only get you the skill and technique you need, but also how to keep in fun and engaging by working on the music YOU love.

How To Breath

Taking a proper breath is one of the fundamentals of good singing. Simply put, it’s a breath that expands not just the upper lungs, but the lower lungs as well. In lessons there is on controlling the lower diaphragm which enables this expansion. A great breath also involves being upright posture, with an open chest, and a relaxed jaw. The throat should expand as well, and lips and tongue should take on the position of the intended vowell. A good singer’s breath will resemble the kind of expansion that a yawn will naturally produce. Once taking in the breath is learned, students will next focus on exhaling. A great vocal technique involves controlling the speed and direction of the air. This is why great singers are able to sustain long notes for such an impressive amount of time. One great exercise is to lie on the floor and place a book on your stomach. Inhale deeply. As you begin to exhale, make a hissing sound and try to keep the book from dropping for as long as possible.

Warm Ups

Just like any athlete, the muscles required for singing need to be gently warmed up. It is best to start in the most comfortable part of the vocal range, and expand as it becomes easier. The “A” vowel is commonly used for warm ups because it required a relatively open and relaxed position for the jaw and lips. Start by singing three notes up and then down again. the goal is to connect the notes with the breath. The sound should be a smooth legato, (connected sound), and the feeling in the body should be open posture lungs and throat, without closing down as you move from one note to the next. As the range of the exercises increases, there is an emphasis on how shaping vowels in brighter and darker ways, and speeding up and slowing down airflow, can help to navigate the more challenging heights of the vocal range. Warm ups are very valuable because they help the prospective singer focus simply on sound production, without getting caught up in the details of lyrics and musical interpretation.

Sight Reading

Sight reading is an important skill for any aspiring musician. To begin, students are taught about treble and bass clefs, (different ranges), and to identify notes that are on the lines, and notes that are in the spaces between the lines. To remember the notes on the lines, students learn phrases such as, “every good boy does fine” The first letter of each word are the notes on the lines of the treble clef from bottom to top. E, G, B, D, F. The notes that are in the spaces between the lines spell the word “Face”, F, A, C, E. As students become faster at identifying these notes based on these simple phrases, the phrases wear off and they simply recognize the note for what it is. In addition to identifying notes, sight reading includes understanding rhythm. Rhythm is differentiated in notation by notes filled in or empty, and with different stems and beams. These indicate different speeds of notes. Even the most accomplished musicians can often improve their sight reading. More advanced training involves pushing speed and looking ahead, and through creating progressive goals.

Music Theory

Music theory teaches us how recognize and identify patterns across all music. It is fascinating because it starts to bring together a clearer understanding, and patterns once complex become simple. Imagine a complicated math equation that actually has a very simple answer. Learning theory involves a mixture of ear training, (the ability to identify harmonies and melodies), as well as identifying and labeling these patterns on paper. Harmony is seen in notation vertically, and is often what might be described as the background in which a melody is set. Harmony consists of chords, (3 or more notes heard simultaneously), and can be Major, Minor, Diminished, and several others. These differences in sound are often described emotionally; happy, sad, or scary. The beginning of music theory training might involve identifying the difference between a couple of these chords. Ultimately, advanced theory students are able to write out the music they hear, and to analyze harmonies and melodies in musical scores. A full grasp on the structure of music can take years to develop.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose Voice?

Some of the best music ever written has been written for the human voice. From ancient chants, to Mozart’s operas, great Musicals to Jazz and your favorite pop artist. The human voice might have the greatest emotional potential of any other instrument because of the double impact of music plus the power of words. Voice students often find studying voice a very rewarding process, often with a variety of unexpected benefits, such as improved self confidence, body awareness, the therapeutic effects of learning to breath properly, and the thrill of singing with others or with instrumental ensembles.

When Should my Child Start Voice Lessons?

Voice instruction for kids has been a tradition for centuries. While repertoire needs to be carefully selected by the instructor to avoid strain, gentle training with appropriate music is safe. We often begin a mixture of basic piano, rhythm and singing as early as age four.

How Long Does it Take to Learn to Sing?

Results are often noticeable in a few months. The variables include the students interest level, and the consistency of practice. Also, how closely the student follows the suggestions for practice. Many students find that recording themselves, listening to great singers as reference, and frequently participating in performance opportunities help to speed up progress. Students that set clear goals for themselves often find improved progress.

Is it Too Late to Take Voice Lessons?

This is a question we frequently get from adult students. While you might not become the next Pavarotti, you might be surprised to see how far you can go. Many of our adult students are middle aged, and even older. There is no physiological reason an older adult cannot learn to sing, or improve his or her voice. In fact, adults sometimes are better able to understand helpful analogies and abstract ideas that are useful to training.
