A description of how the vocal folds produce sound, including photos of real live vocal folds! You will learn how they come together for phonation (singing/speaking etc), and what they are doing at rest. You will also learn where they are placed in the throat. This lecture will help you understand why good vocal technique is important, and behind a sore or inflamed throat (and how to avoid it if you can!)
Hello! My name is Kelsi Phillips and I love music. Music is everything to me. It's why I get out of bed in the morning, and something I love even more than just listening to it, is playing it. I love it and I would love to share my passion for it with you. We can do anything we put our minds to and I believe that if you want to become the best musician in the world, you can! I teach everything by ear, I don't read music. But a lot of people can't do that which is amazing in my book. But I will do the best I can to help you on this journey to learning the greatness of music. ... View Profile

Maybe you need voice lessons because you want to play the songs you hear on the radio. Maybe you need voice lessons because you want to play in a band. Or, maybe you need voice lessons because you are an adult that always wanted to play, but never had the support or opportunity. Regardless of your style, level, or goals, Freeway Music is absolutely the best place in Columbia, SC to take voice lessons. Here some things that set Freeway Music’s program apart:
If your child loves to sing, you probably knew it before they could talk. While you should always encourage singing, most children under the age of 7 generally don't have the focus or patience needed for formal singing lessons. With persistence and motivation some kids have learned to play sing at some impressively young ages, but it really comes down to is the individual attitude and maturity level of the student. 
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.
I bought this book as a last ditch effort to have a minimal competence in singing. My voice is in the bass range, which is fine for a chorus, but not much use for pop music today. I also, sang flat in my range (chest voice). My range was limited. I read the book up to about chapter 11. The business about the vowels and consonants; I did not think was useful. I put the book away for a week or so. One day I decided to try doing the boring exercises on the CD. I did it every day for 1 week. I did not notice a difference, until I tried a song that I play regularly and I was able to hit a note that I could never hit before. Also, being more aware of my breathing, I was able to show more vocal strength. Will I ever ... full review

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.

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.
Artist works provides an amazing format. A student can spend hours going through the curriculum and practising in a systematic way. The curriculum makes sense; it builds progressively from foundational lessons to lessons that are more elaborate. There are guests and additional material from festivals added regularly. The opportunity to converse and demonstrate one's skill level with the Musicians / teachers is invaluable. In my experience both Michael Dave's and Bryan Sutton are incredibly engaging, attentive to detail, supportive, and just generally awesome people to exchange videos with and to learn from.
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’ music scene has retained its local flavor and relevance with more modern acts like ‘psychobilly’ pioneer Reverend Horton Heat, Erykah Badu, the Old 97’s, indie rock staple Toadies, and metal kings Pantera. Denton, a northern satellite of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, boasts its own odd Austin-like vibe as a ‘music town’ with a strong local music scene that exists firmly on its own but also contributes directly to Dallas’ own scene. Additionally, one of the leading collegiate Music programs in the country can be found in Denton at the University of North Texas. Taylor Robinson Music Lessons has a strong core of instructors throughout the DFW Metroplex, always ready and willing to teach and help shape students into the musicians they hope to become. Some Music Lessons we teach in the area are Music Lessons Dallas, Dallas Piano Lessons, guitar lessons Dallas, Drum Lessons Dallas, and Voice Lessons Dallas. We can also provide a Dallas Vocal Coach

There are five main things that can make a huge difference in the quality of music instruction your child receives, the amount of extra work and hassles the parents must deal with, and the overall enjoyment and satisfaction of being involved with a music program.
