Not everyone needs to become a professional singer, but everyone should enjoy singing with the voice they have.
Everyone with a voice can sing, but some might need extra help to feel comfortable and enjoy it. Do you want to learn how to sing in tune, pass a singing exam, or just be confident enough to sing along with others? No matter what your goals are for having lessons, the program will be individually adapted to fit each student’s needs, level and goals. There are no age limit or experience requirements to enter, just turn up.
As a technical foundation, classical training is used, but other genres will also be on the repertoire. Some of the teaching elements included in the program are:
Vocal training – included breathing technique and posture.
Vocal anatomy – understanding your instrument and keeping it healthy.
Aural training – developing aural skills and listening awareness.
Music theory – included sight-singing.
Interpretation and stage performance – how to interpret a song and convey a story to the audience, sometimes through drama.
For the first lesson the students should bring with them any recent repertoire and prepare a couple of songs they are comfortable with. After hearing the voice, we will be able to suggest more exactly how to proceed to reach technical and personal goals.
Students are encouraged to enter ABRSM exams and the program will then be adapted to meet the ABRSM requirements.
