By Maya A. - Boston Singing Teacher
We hear tons of songs on the radio, on our iPods and on the Internet. Why do the singers make them sound so effortless? As a teacher of singing lessons in Boston, I'm always surprised as to what students think their voice should be able to do already before any lessons. I had one student who was very ambitious about singing songs at the top of his register, so I introduced a few songs that worked on slowly expanding his range. Eventually, he was able to sing higher songs effortlessly.
As a voice teacher of multiple genres, students have asked me if they can sing a song that goes a little too high or too low for their voice. What makes a song right for your range? When you pick a song you want to sing, there are a few things you might want to consider: for example, is the song sung by a woman or a man? Men and women have different voices. Pop and rock songs are usually written to suit the needs of these two different categories. Let's take an example. If you're a guy who feels comfortable singing low notes without much effort then a John Mayer song might be great for you! However, if you are a girl who loves to sing high, a low jazz song may not be right for you.
When you start voice lessons in Boston, you and your teacher should work together to find a song that sits comfortably on your voice: it might have a breathy low or high note when you start learning it, but no notes that take a great amount of effort to sing. Over a period of weeks, working on "comfortable" songs like these will help to expand your range so those breathy low and high notes will become clearer!
It's important to remember that everyone's voice is different. Most songs are written for a particular singer's vocal range. If you've been trying to master a song for months and it still feels awkward to sing, it might not be not you; it might be the song! Move on and try a different song.
I hope these tips help as you embark upon your singing lessons in Boston and work on finding the right songs for your voice. Good luck!
I work with people in regard to singing lessons since 2004 in both academic settings and private face-to-face instructions. The lesson's plans and general direction that it takes during the course of study substantially depends on the student's interests and preferences. Along with main subjects that motivates students most in taking voice lessons ( such as learning new songs from the contemporary popular repertoire, for instance), I will offer my prospective students basic training in general musicianship; this would enable people to sing, read written music, and understand the very basics of music theory. With such advantages at their hands, my students will be able to expand their singing repertoire and to move, probably, to another styles of music for singing and enjoying it for the sake of people's personal aesthetical development.
Solid knowledge from 18 years of playing guitar and singing, I Graduated From Berklee College Of music as one of the first African Scholars.
I provide lessons to beginner-intermediate students who are interested in learning the proper singing technique for classical music, opera, and musical theatre. In lessons, I help the students build a solid technique, learn new repertoire, and prepare for upcoming auditions. I always incorporate basic ear-training, solfege, and sight-reading practice that will aid the singer in learning and understanding music. For students learning pieces in foreign languages, I will also introduce the student to IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) and help him or her to feel comfortable with diction in multiple languages.
Yun started recording as a singer at a very young age. She has recorded and released 9 albums as a member of “Green Swallows” from 1999 to 2005 and two solo albums in 2004 and 2005. To further broaden her musicianship, she studied composition, arranging and performance at the Berklee College of Music, and completed a Performance Degree. She teaches singing in English, Mandarin and Cantonese. Her students Jia Wei Zhao(2016 spring) and You Zi(2016 summer) were admitted by Berklee College of Music.
Baritone. As a Master's Candidate for Vocal Pedagogy at The Boston Conservatory, I feel that training is the foundation for all singing. Whether it is classical, contemporary, or anything in between - the building block for the voice are all the same. Challenging yourself and learning how to efficiently practice is a central focus that I bring to my studio. I am a beginning teacher, but I have been singing and taking lessons for about 8 years. So, I feel confident in teaching a range of ages! I learn from Listening to my students. I find that it is the best way to understand how I can help them from both the technique side, as well as the mental side. By observing what each students needs, I enjoy helping them achieve their goals, while pushing them to discover new ones as well.
