Inspiration is all around you. Who hasn’t heard Adele on the radio and thought, “I wish I could do that”? Who hasn’t watched “The Voice” and dreamed of becoming the next breakout star?
Voice lessons: warming up
A typical voice lesson begins with exercises. You’ll move up and down in the vocal range, expressing each vowel sound and engaging the breath. Your teacher can help you find the best fit for your particular voice — rock, pop, opera, jazz, classical, musical theatre, Broadway.
Working on repertoire – your roadmap to success
Now you’re ready to begin working on songs, or repertoire. Which ones will depend on your experience and the style you want to learn. Learning to read music will help you get more out of your lessons and practice time, no matter if you’re interested in pop, classical or jazz. You might want to learn some music theory – scales and chord progressions – which will help you learn to improvise.
