We don't want you to just sing in the shower with your newly-trained voice. All of our voice students have many options to perform in recitals and performances that we have at the school throughout the year. Some of these performances happen right in the atrium in our own building. Students will get to perform with other students in their age group and skill level. Performances give students the opportunity to practice that final step of the music-learning curriculum by exercising the presentation of their skills in a public forum. The excitement and nerves of public performance can often derail good technique if it hasn't been properly learned and reinforced in the first place.
Students in School of Rock's Adult Program (18-years-old and up) learn scales, how to keep tempo, and how to stay on-key as well as more advanced vocal techniques like voice sustainability. Vocalists hone their skills by learning how to sing popular rock songs in private singing lessons for adults, group rehearsals, and full band sessions. With expert training from our professional vocal coaches and the support of their band, singers lead up to live performances on stage.
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.
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.
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.

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.
