By OJ S. - Baltimore Voice Teacher
As an experienced voice teacher, I want to share a few tips with you on how to get the most out of your singing lessons in Baltimore by heeding these four criteria when choosing a voice teacher:
Fit. How compatible are you with this teacher? If you want to sing a specific type of music, choose a voice teacher who has at least some experience with that genre or style. Similarly you should choose a teacher who will be supportive of and helpful to someone with your level of experience.
Proximity. Construction combined with congested roads and highways make driving almost impossible during peak travel hours in Baltimore. Keep in mind what day, time of day, where and how you will be traveling to get to your singing lessons in Baltimore. Consider whether or not an in-home lesson would be worth the added expense to avoid those hassles.
Experience. A good voice teacher should have energy, curiosity and commitment to the craft. Fortunately, there is no direct quantifiable correlation between those three characteristics and years of experience, but consider a voice teacher with at least some private lesson experience.
Education. Universities and conservatories are designed to produce professional performers, not vocal pedagogues. Most of the time, a teacher with a Doctor of Musical Arts (DMA) will be overkill for a novice singer. On the other hand, a teacher without at least some formal education or extensive private study may not have a strong enough command of the fundamentals of music to help you achieve your goals.
I hope you find these tips helpful as you embark upon your musical journey to take singing lessons in Baltimore. Good luck!
I work with beginner students to teach them the fundamentals of singing. I like to use a range of music that is both customized to the individuals interested yet still presents and educational challenge for the student. During the lessons I focus on proper posture and technique, note recognition, ear training, and harmony in order to enable my students to have proper control and a solid understanding of their voice.
My specialty is in classical voice technique, whether that be for opera, art song, musical theatre, pop, or R&B.
Regardless of your experience or age, singing is a wonderful expressive and educational tool. My extensive background in singing and wellness training allows me to teach students in a healthy and exciting way.
Singing is my specialty--especially, singing in a relaxed, body-conscious, creative/heartfelt way. Are you longing to develop your own unique voice, and to share it with the world? To sing with more relaxation and freedom? To connect with audiences and to move them emotionally? Then, you've come to the right place.
