Finding the best possible vocal coach to suit your unique abilities and style is not always easy. Some people get lucky and find an excellent tutor on first try! Others go through a series of teachers and still can't decide – either it's a hit or miss, or simply not enough information to make a decision
Peter Vox to the rescue! He is the principal teacher and director at Vox Singing Academy, who has more than 25 years of singing teaching experience, and performed himself professionally as a vocalist for over 35 years now…
1.Write down a few words or goalsabout what you want to achieve from singing lessons. do you want to improve your vocal tone, confidence, vocal range, breathing, pitch, stamina, strength, technique, control, harmonies, vocal health, stage presentation
Do you want classical or contemporary lessons or courses? (the difference) Group or private classes (the difference)
2.Now you know what you want to achieve, do some research. This is similar to choosing a car or a university. This is an investment. And choosing the right singing teacher or singing course is going to save you a lot of time and money. Google what you were looking for, eg classical singing lessons, R&B singing lessons, children's singing lessons, adult singing lessons, Best singing lessons, read the reviews, read their website and see what they can offer you, ask friends or people in the music industry for their opinion and advice.
3.Now that you have done your research and narrowed down your choices to 2 or 3 singing schools. And now compare them to each other. Write down the pros and cons of each. If you have any questions have no hesitation to email or ring the School… The singing school: • Should Respond to you promptly and be extremely helpful. • Be willing and able to answer all of your questions. If they are unwilling or not prepared to answer your questions, do not go to that school. • All singing Schools should be guaranteeing there work and what services they are able to provide you with.
4.Now that you have chosen your desired online singing school. Book a lesson. See if the school offers a single trial lesson. To see whether you gel and get along with the teacher and give you a value-packed first lesson catering to your needs. At the completion of your first lesson, the teacher should have a full understanding of what you want to achieve from your lessons and know as much about you artistically so that they can help you sing better as quickly as they can.
You should receive a warm-up or skill scale/ scales played on piano with the teacher giving examples for you to practice at home that has been customised to your vocal range and genre of music.
The teacher should have been given you a practice regime regarding how long you should be doing scales and singing for every day. And finally what you need to prepare and what is expected of you in the next class.
You should finish your first class with the feeling of confidence that if you practice you should be feeling and sounding a lot better in the first month.
If you don't feel that you received or covered most of these points in the first lesson I would highly recommend another school or teacher.
I hope that this video has helped you out.
Enjoy your singing and bye for now!
