LESSONS TAKING PLACE ONLINE ONLY
I am a beginner, are lessons suitable for me?
Yes! We all have to start somewhere! The lessons are tailored to your voice and what you would like to achieve. I make sure in every lesson, you feel safe and comfortable so we can really optimise learning.
Do I have to practise?
Yes. Practise is a very important part of the process. This is because we are learning a skill, and working with the body. If an athlete only trained once a week, would this be enough for them to be their best and/or get better? No.
Are online lessons worth it?
Yes! Online Lessons are as beneficial as in-person lessons, but with the benefit of being in the comfort of your own home and avoiding travel. Feeling comfortable and relaxed in a voice lesson has great benefits, so being at home can sometimes enhance this. It also means when you practise, you can recreate and reinforce exactly what we did and how you felt in the lesson. Click here to read more about online lessons.
What can I expect in my first voice lesson?
In the first session, we will first have a quick chat before we start singing. This is so I can get to know you and to discuss how you're feeling about your voice, where you would like to improve and what you would like to achieve. I will then have a listen to your voice; first of all doing a simple scale (don't worry if you dont know this) and possibly singing a song (please have a song in mind). We will then put our plan that we discussed into action!
How often should I book voice lessons?
There isn't a straight answer to this question as it depends on how much you're practising, what you're aiming / working towards and your budget.
Where do the lessons take place?
Currently, all lessons take place online via ZOOM.
How many lessons do I need to take to be a good singer?
This is a difficult question to answer and it depends on lots of factors. Where you're currently at, what we are working towards, how much we practise, bad habits, vocal health etc. Some people do naturally learn faster than others. It is individual to each student.
How much do lessons cost?
Should I share my medical history with my voice teacher?
Yes! This is important, as the voice is part of the body. Anything that effects the body, can effect the voice. It has even been shown that some medications (completley unrelated to the voice) can cause adverse effects on the voice. The more information we know, the more we will be able to make sure the lessons are personalised and suited to you and your voice.
What age should I be to take voice lessons?
No matter what your age is, you can benefit from taking voice lessons! However, we would recommend a minimum age of 6, to make sure you can benefit the most of out of lessons. Click here to find out more about what a vocal lesson includes.
