Why have Singing Lessons or Vocal Coaching:
Many of our clients seek us out for one of two reasons, either to Feed A Passion, or Fix A Pain.
Feeding Your Passion:
The difference between a singing lesson and a vocal coaching session is that in a singing lesson, you are mainly working on technique, range building, tone enhancement and stamina. In a vocal coaching session, you would work on repertoire and how to get the best out of your material. It’s true to say that singing lessons and coaching sessions often happen within the one session, however, sometimes a client may specifically want a session dedicated to one or the other.
There is a common misconception that only classical singers have singing lessons. But every mainstream artist that you listen to will have had this sort of coaching.
For professional and semi-professional singers, we provide an essential service to make sure that you can continue to earn your living from your passion. Fully understanding the quirks of your voice and how it operates at its best and worst is invaluable information to an artist. We provide the external set of eyes and ears to make sure that you and your instrument are at the top of your game. At the end of the day singing is an athletic activity, and every professional athlete in the world has a coach.
For our amateur or beginner clients, we are there at the start of your journey, helping you to take those first steps of vocal discovery! It could be that you want to sing for your husband/wife on your wedding day, or take part in a local karaoke competition – or just sing in the shower! Singing has been proven time and time again to have numerous physical, emotional and mental health benefits and so even if you just want the confidence to hum around the house, we can help!
