I structure the lessons so that about half is spent developing your voice: strength, agility and a richer sound. Learning to use your breath is a big part of that; the way you hold your body also has an effect on your voice. Then the rest is for songs. I encourage singers to try a variety of styles, though some kinds of songs are more helpful for your vocal training than others. We record exercises and songs so you can practice on your own.
- correct habits that keep singers from their best voice
- help choral groups add polish and develop a better sound
- coach new teachers in vocal pedagogy
Voice lessons are 1 hour, 3/4 hour or 1/2 hour, depending on your time, budget and personal goals. Usually I recommend that you start with a one-hour lesson, in which we can find out what’s happening with your voice and get you started on the basics. After that, most beginning students will have a 3/4 hour or 1/2 hour lesson per week.
