Voice Lessons

VOICE LESSONS

Learning to sing is much different from learning a ‘hands-on’ instrument.  At Walters Music School, we acknowledge that every voice is unique and encourage our students to progress at a rate that is comfortable for them.  Lessons are tailored to suit the needs and natural abilities of each singer.  Proper vocal technique is taught through a variety of genres: classical, jazz/blues, folk, pop, Broadway, gospel and Latin. Learn to sing in a no pressure, friendly and encouraging environment.

The following topics will be covered throughout the course, in the order in which they present challenges for the singer:

Correct posture
Finding your voice type: soprano, mezzo soprano,
alto or contralto, tenor, baritone or bass
Breath Control
Matching Pitches and Rhythms
Pre-Hearing Notes
Registers- Head voice and Chest voice
Finding and increasing your vocal range
Shaping of Vowels, Diction
Vocal Health, Interpretation and Improvisation
Timbre, Microphone Technique
Performance/Audition Tips

Private lessons are held weekly for 30 minutes. For all ages 6 years and older.
Advanced classes are also available for students preparing for university/college auditions.  Further information is available upon request.
