Breathing is much more complex than we realise. We do it every day without thinking - but what is really happening when we breathe, and is there a certain way to breath for singing? This lecture will demystify what is taking place in the body when you breathe. A description of how the intercostal muscles, the diaphragm, lungs and ribcage work together to produce breath effective for singing and speaking. Includes diagrams.

We also offer the option for students to take piano lessons in addition to their voice lessons. Adults will find this useful because basic piano skills will enable them to accompany themselves while playing as well as with music theory and songwriting. Younger students will also find the piano lesson addition to be very valuable.  Advanced vocal technique can't fully be addressed and taught unless the voice has matured so the technical portion of the lesson in younger children is limited. By learning to play an instrument simultaneously students get the opportunity to development musicianship and musical understanding in tandem with their vocal training.  Besides, all of the modern observations about the benefits of learning music have been observed on those who were playing an instrument and reading notes....and who wouldn't want that for their child?     


Singing Lessons for all ages...children, high school students, college students and adults In order to sing with beauty and ease, one must understand the mental, emotional and physical effects on the voice. Learning vocal technique is a process of asking questions and making discoveries. I have taught voice lessons for 25 years in colleges and universities, as well as, privately to children, high school students and adults. I enjoy helping people of all ages and abilities to discover the joy and freedom in their singing. I have a B.M., B.M.E. and M.M. in vocal music and vocal pedagogy. My own singing career has taken me to some major stages ... View Profile


There is not a more powerful tool in building confidence than overcoming the fear of public performance and public speaking. Vocal lessons teach students to control and train their body to relax while performing. Anxiety and performance-induced stress often translates into bad vocal performances. Many singers find themselves great singers in smaller, informal settings - in the recording studio or even the shower - and often find it challenging or impossible to reproduce the same quality performance in front of a larger audience.  Our teachers will teach you how to overcome this fear and to release your inner confidence and full musical potential.

We make singing lessons for kids fun and engaging. Private voice lessons, group rehearsals and live performances help children learn how to sing in a comfortable atmosphere, no matter what skill level they're at vocally. Expert voice instructors teach the basics like staying in-key, breathing and diction and advanced techniques like timbre and intonation. Based on age and skill level, kids join at least one of School of Rock's music programs for kids: Rookies, Rock 101, Performance, House Band, and AllStars.
Singing with clarity and control is necessary for a good sound. This group singing class will cover vocal exercises for singers such as how to bring your voice forward into the face to improve your overall sound. This will be accomplished by looking at vocal anatomy and learning some voice exercises and warmups that can be practiced daily. These vocal training tips will help you use your voice to its fullest potential!
I love teaching Salsa because I certainly know it would bring happiness to my students. I always teach to my students to understand the rhythm and the music of what they are dancing, I teach them to listen, so they can afterwards without any doubt fall in to the rhythm without any problem.  In my experience Salsa saved me a couple of times from quiting school, it took me to Europe and was the reason of meeting friends for life, family.  I studied 2 years Jazz and Tap in Mexico. Later I taught as a instructor for the company Rumba Azteca in Guanajuato, Mexico and became a member of the staff of dancers for SalsaSi Dance Company in Kr ... View Profile
Dallas has a long-running and ever-changing musical history. The downtown neighborhood of Deep Ellum came about in the late1800s as part of a huge blues movement, producing such influential acts as Blind Lemon Jefferson, T-Bone Walker, Lead Belly, and the incomparable master Robert Johnson. While Deep Ellum has seen a recent resurgence as a popular area for the music entertainment industry, love and celebration of music has spread throughout all of Dallas and its many suburbs over the years.
We believe that music education should be fun, and we enjoy providing space in our stores for talented teachers to share their love of music.

Serving students from all around the Omaha area, Schmitt Music is the place to call when you are ready to learn.
Here are a couple of basic things a singer can do to start building a bigger voice: use correct breathing method, engage vocal resonances and master singing on clean stationary vowels.  There is a common misconception about how to breathe.  Some believe that a singer needs to expand their ribcage out horizontally while inhaling.  That is incorrect.  This will result in various issues such as limited vocal range, pitch problems, a wobbly shaky vibrato and more.
Students don’t have to wait until showcases or recitals for playing experience. They can attend one of the many open mics and jams that Freeway Music hosts throughout the city. We host open mics at places like Drip, Beef O’ Brady’s, and Social Grill. Freeway Music even has an open jazz jam every other Tuesday at Delaney’s in Five Points. We keep our events posted on the website to make it easy for students to keep up with what is going on.
There cannot be enough said about the importance of singing with proper vocal technique.  Our vocal instructors will teach you the proper technique of singing and how to use your singing and speaking voice in a healthy and natural way.  Voice lessons will teach you the proper breath support needed to optimize vocal potential in a way that will not damage your vocal folds.  There are so many singers who try to affect their voice in order to mimic other singers and performers.  This often causes serious damage to vocal chords particularly when the singer they were trying to copy wasn't singing correctly to begin with.  We have several things that you will find make our voice lessons unique.
For devoted musicians, instruments are almost like an extension of the body - but vocalists are the only ones who can truthfully say their body itself is an instrument. And what an instrument it is! There are as many unique voices as there are people in the world, so no two vocalists have exactly the same sound. What that means is simple: if you want an instrument that's like no other, your voice is it. All it takes is to learn how to unlock its potential, and that's where vocal lessons at Guitar Center come into the picture. We'll prepare you with the basic skills and knowledge you need for success, and guide you through the process of developing and fine-tuning your voice to bring out its musical potential.
The Diva Method is excellent- every video contains material gained from years of research, passion, and experience with all genres and voices. Literally after one week my voice sounded better and I braved a big song at a campfire! Then was asked to join my church worship team- maybe a silly dream, but a dream of mine for sure! A year and a half later, I still warm up with these videos and am still growing. The number one joy is that I have so much more freedom in my voice than ever before. Jeannie is (was) such an artist she really has a way of bringing you out from behind all your head trips, building your physiology, and oh my goodness- I can sing in front of people as well as I could by myself. I sing at church three Sundays a month getting great leads and solos and harmonies. Brava Jeannie and thank you!

I truly enjoyed my first lesson with Indigo. She's a wonderful instructor. She explains very clearly with a calm and precise approach. I truly feel she can teach me how to be a better guitarist in a structured, positive and comfortable way. She immediately put me at ease without judgement and without the dreaded "mansplaining" that I often got from male instructors in the past. I'm definitely coming back for more lessons.
