Frequently Asked Questions About Voice Lessons
Q: What is the youngest age to begin working on voice?
A: Pre-teen ages 10-12. We suggest beginning serious vocal study at age 12 or 13, however, we’ve had great success working on establishing the basics with students as young as age 10. This is particularly the case if a young student shows a great passion for signing early on and could greatly benefit from basic techniques and training that can help them safely explore their voice as it develops, while also learning basic music concepts that they can apply elsewhere further along their musical journey.
Q: I love to sing but sometimes my voice gets really tiered, can you help?
A: Yes, this is a very common issue for singers and its also very easy to correct by cultivating good vocal technique. A little bit of training can go a long way in learning to establish proper vocal support, for example.
Q: I have a lot of trouble reaching high notes, can you help?
A: Yes! Extending your range is something that can easily be achieved with a few basic adjustments and exercises.
Q: I am terrified of singing in public, can you help me overcome stage fright?
A: Yes! Voice is a very sensitive instrument and it requires the cultivation of confidence, but even still, stage fright can be a very real challenge to overcome. We are happy to work with you through this process! We’ve had great success coaching our students through this particular experience.
Q: How long a lesson to do recommend and how often?
A: We offer lessons in 30-minute, 45-minute, or 60-minute sessions. We recommend weekly lessons for most students, but to accommodate busy schedules, we also offer lessons every other week. In addition, we offer the option of occasional or walk-in lessons.
For young beginners (pre-teens), we recommend weekly 30-minute lessons. Intermediate singers and young adults (teens) tend to do best with weekly 45-minute lessons. Adults tend to have busy schedules so we recommend 45-minute lessons every other week. We recommend weekly 45-60 minute lessons for intermediate and advanced singers, and 60 minutes for singers who would also like to learn both voice and guitar together.
