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. Here are 5 things that every parent should consider before deciding on a music studio for their child. 1.  Are Music Studios Sound Insulated? Out attractive music studios are also sound insulated with observation window and doors to give students and parents a sense of “open doors” comfort and security.  It also gives parents an opportunity to observe how th ...

Riley could not even look adults in the eye when speaking to them when Steve began teaching her at age 10. But by the time she graduated high school at 18, she had blossomed into a very powerful, skilled, and controlled singer who had starred in several school productions and won several awards and accolades such as the NJ NATS award and the NJ All-State Honors Choir.
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.

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.
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.
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?     
As a child matures into a teenager, it becomes increasingly more important for them to get private lessons, because this is when they can realize they can pursue a career - full-time or part-time gigs - in singing. Having a well-seasoned instructor coach the teen and give him or her the right guidance and support can help make their hopes of singing for a living more practical and realistic. A good coach can refer the student to the right information and people resources.
