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.
Vocal instructors at Schmitt Music offer a unique experience for those who want to learn to improve their singing skills. While making singing fun, voice lessons will teach good habits and fundamentals. Vocal lessons and professional instruction promote proper breath support, provides a foundation for proper technique, and can help your child learn to strengthen their tone, control their breathing and sing in harmony.
Two things in singing are non-negotiable: breath support and jaw placement. This online singing class will teach you both! You’ll learn breathing exercises for singing as well as proper jaw placement. Your instructor will even discuss diet for singers and the impact it can have on vocal health. A little homework will give you even more vocal training so you can build on a solid foundation of singing skills.
Now that you have warmed up your resonating chambers, you can try singing on other vowels to continue warming up the voice. The "Aah" sound is one of the hardest to produce - but you should be able to perform this without pressure or force if you are doing all these exercises in succession. This is because we have placed major focus on exercises that keep the feeling of the voice in the face, nose and mouth.
e singing lessons but Milton came in with a positive attitude. Milton is very friendly, funny, professional and always enthusiastic when asking questions about music. I use to be very shy, "never want to sing in front of people" type of girl, but ever since I started lessons with him, I sing all the time in front of people, starting to perform on stage, built A LOT of confidence, and found what type of musician I am. All the things he teaches me is VERY USEFUL, I apply everything we learn to my music and it has made a huge difference. I've come to learn that the tiniest things count! I highly recommend him and you'll have the best time!"
My teaching approach: I tailor my lessons to fit the students goals. Beginner students want to learn songs, not theory. So I get the student playing /singing before I focus on scales and theory. I want to teach the student what they want to learn as well as giving them the skills to be a good musician/vocalist. I also determine what your learning style is, so that I can effectively teach you in the way you learn best. I have over 14 years teaching experience in guitar and voice, and I teach songwriting and ukulele as well. I've been performing locally and internationally for over 7 years. My influences are: The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Patty ... View Profile

Trained as a classical pianist, I used to moonlight playing popular songs I heard on the radio and would hide it from my teacher. Nowadays, I ask my students what would like they to play and pick one or two songs that they like so they can practice. I don't mind if my student plays a Chopin Nocturne and then a blues/ jazz song. It's to create combination using all sides of the brain and engage students in making music.

Please do not pass over this course when you see that it covers the ANATOMY of singing. Roma starts at the beginning because that is how we learn, at the beginning. I am not new to singing but was feeling rusty on my skills/knowledge. She includes so much information that you get to print and keep forever, including a vocal warm-up cd that you may download. Sometimes she is on video for warm-ups and talks to you like you are in the room with her. I recommend this course to anyone and everyone.
