Singing is a much more complex art than it first appears. It is near impossible to learn proficiently when just singing along to songs or looking at online resources. Private singing lessons will give you total attention from your vocal coach, in order for you to improve your voice quickly and effectively. Your voice teacher will also be able to see any weak points that a trainer of a choir or group class may not notice. This way, you will avoid developing bad habits that might impede your progress.
Singing isn't easy, especially if you want to do it well, but Siv's book is just such a great help. He gives detailed information not only on singing in tune but also on breathing, tone, and warmups.

I'm so excited about singing and so happy that I have all the help I need, right from this book!

My passion is singing and I am pursuing a Master’s degree in classical vocal performance at the Mannes School of Music.

Everyone has a unique voice and learning style and I tailor my teaching to each individual.

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

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.
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.

When should kids start taking singing lessons? There's no single correct answer for this. However, it's more important that a child loves to sing and develops a passion for getting better at it than it is for him or her to get a private vocal coach. Kids have unique learning needs, so if you do decide to hire someone, the vocal coach should offer tailored vocal techniques and exercises, as not to put too much pressure on a child. The worst thing you can do is over-coach, and negate the child's passion.

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.

At School of Rock, we teach private singing lessons in conjunction with weekly band rehearsals meant to build confidence and teamwork. While we do offer private singing instruction, we strongly encourage students to play in band rehearsals as a way of exploring group dynamics, and get the chance to find out what it's like to sing lead vocals for a rock band.
Have you ever wondered how singers such as Whitney Houston, Freddy Mercury, Maria Carey, Elvis Presley and Ariana Grande produce that beautiful sound? The answer is "Bel Canto." It's not just a vocal technique, it's a science. Some great singers intuitively apply the concepts of "Bel Canto" to reach vocal greatness while others were taught. At "Beautiful Voice NJ" students learn everything from how to produce a gorgeous tone to how to gain ultimate pitch control. Modern day Bel Canto, which means "Beautiful Singing," is applied to all styles of music: Rock, Pop, Alternative, Jazz, R&B, Funk, Blues, Soul, Broadway, Country, Hip Hop, Classical and more.

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.
