Private Singing Teacher

As an award-winning singer-songwriter, I have been teaching singing for six years. My teaching focuses on finding your own unique voice. In first few lessons, you will learn how to access each of your different resonators (and what they are!), how to properly use the 360-degree breathing method, and how to access your most grounded self in order to clearly define your goals. Through this self-discovery process and use of proper technique, your expression through singing will come to life!

Lessons are fun. My philosophy is that students should have music in their lives and benefit from the lessons they take now for years to come. Learning music will help students with math skills, study habits, and develop a skill that will last for a lifetime.

After 3 months students will understand the fundamentals of their voice, warm up properly, be able to read and sing introductory passages. After 6 months the student will have learned basic music theory, how to read music, and have advanced through singing multiple songs.

About Betsy

Music is the biggest passion in my life. I love being able to share that gift with my students, and look forward to their progress as much as my own. I continue to grow and develop as a musician, and love connecting with people through music. My students all learn to love and appreciate music, t

My daughter Madison thinks that Betsy is the greatest. She was very excited, which is exactly what I hoped for. Betsy made her want to continue learning. Madison was interested in tennis a few years ago....her coach was mean and autocratic, which made her lose that interest. It’s nice to see how Betsy is an inspiring instructor.

My teenage son is enjoying his lessons. Brian is a very knowledgeable teacher and obviously wants his students to enjoy playing (chooses songs that interest them). He also gives a good amount of material for my son to learn throughout the week. Fun to hear him practicing!

"Definitely recommend! Awesome combo of practical lessons while at the same time building up the basics of actually singing correctly. I'm a singer/songwriter and took a few basic lessons back in high school - but they weren't really pop-oriented. Cyndi has definitely improved my basic singing technique while also focusing on the type of music I want to actually play (pop). I suspect she's also pretty great teaching other styles since she references a lot of techniques that blend over into pop."

During future sessions she was also very good at helping me develop goals and determine what I wanted to accomplish during my lessons. When I had a chance to sing in front of people, Liza was incredibly supportive and quick to respond to any questions I had over email to help me prepare outside of lessons as well.

Liza is an incredibly dedicated voice teacher and is extremely knowledgeable. In just the first few lessons, the corrections she gave me helped me improve my vocal range, strength, and technique. I would definitely recommend Liza as a teacher!"

Private Singing Classes Near You and Online

If you've ever watched a musical, attended a karaoke party, or listened to a choir harmonize and thought, "I wish I could do that," then voice lessons are the best first step.

Singing brings people together, whether in choirs, concerts, or just amongst friends. One of the most powerful instruments in the world is built into our bodies, and learning how to use this innate instrument can bring about a lifetime of musical expression.

Many aspiring singers have the misconception that people are either born with innate singing talent or not. While it’s true that some young singers can quickly pick up vocal skills, the majority of great singers have worked with voice coaches for years. Even if you have some natural singing abilities, it’s still important to hone your skills if you want to reach your full potential.

A voice coach’s job is more than just helping you sing in tune. They also give you the unique feedback necessary to reduce unnecessary tensions, liberate your breath, and perform with confidence. Although many vocal exercises can sound silly, when used correctly, they are nothing short of magic on the vocal cords. Within just a few vocal lessons, you’ll be amazed at how your voice opens up!

Why Take Voice Lessons?

Taking singing lessons will develop your ability to confidently participate in the joy of music, whether by joining a choir, singing at a karaoke bar, or landing a gig in the music business. Studying music with a voice coach also imparts a whole range of non-musical benefits for both adults and children. Keep reading to find out more!

Benefits of Singing Lessons for Adults

In music therapy, singing is often used for healing purposes; it imparts positive emotional and mental benefits. Adults who participate in music display sharper cognitive abilities and a better memory function. Singing has also been shown to improve your posture and breathing.

Benefits of Singing Lessons for Kids

Several studies show a clear link between children who take music lessons and increased intelligence, better grades, and improved focus. Studying music uses a variety of brain processes related to reading, memory, listening, synthesizing, and coordination. 

Practicing music in childhood appears to improve mathematical ability, memory, cognitive function, and spatial intelligence. Studying music also benefits children later in life. Adults who studied music as children show a greater capacity for hearing and understanding language. 

What You'll Learn in Vocal Lessons

Whether you want to take your vocal skills to the stage or just sing better around the house, private lessons are the way to go. You'll benefit from prompt feedback and personalized instruction that you just can't get in a larger choir or simply watching video tutorials. Lesson by lesson, your voice coach will lay out a clear path for reaching your vocal goals.

A professional voice teacher will be able to see any weak points that a director of a choir or group class may not notice. This way, you’ll avoid developing bad habits that can impede your progress down the road and even lead to damaging your voice.

In vocal lessons, you'll learn how to bring the best out of your voice, resulting in your own unique musical expression. This involves developing your tone, your pitch control, and your breathing. You may also study music theory, different musical genres, or work on specific songs in order to perfect your technique. Most students will begin to hear improvement in just a couple of weeks. Below, we’ll go into detail on more of the specific learning topics at each skill level.

Sample Curriculum for Singing Lessons for Beginners

Your first voice lessons focus on evaluating your current abilities, establishing a foundation of skills, and setting you up for success. In beginner singing lessons, your vocal coach may choose to cover the following:

  • Proper posture
  • Breathing techniques
  • Vocal warm-ups
  • Vocal health
  • Tone, range, and vocal qualities
  • Intonation (matching pitches)
  • Introduction to reading music and music theory

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Singing Lessons

Intermediate singing lessons are designed to develop your basic skills further. If you already have some experience or a musical background, intermediate lessons will probably be the best choice for you. During lessons, you may work on the following:

  • Vocal exercises
  • Sight reading
  • Practice pitch changes and control
  • Introduction to vocal diction and singing pronunciation
  • Develop vocal tone
  • Develop singing technique

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Voice Lessons

In advanced lessons, voice teachers focus on improving a well-trained student’s technique, ability, and range. If you’re hoping to be a professional singer and see your name in lights someday, this is the right level for you. Advanced lessons include the following topics:

  • Improve power
  • Extend vocal range
  • Mixed voice
  • Vibrato
  • Ear training
  • Composition and songwriting
  • Audition preparation 

Regardless of your skill level, keep in mind that our private vocal teachers customize lessons to your specific interests, goals, and learning style. Lessons for adults will include more challenging practice and theory. For younger children taking singing lessons for beginners, the curriculum will be more centered around sparking interest and making music fun.

In addition, if you’d like to focus on a particular style, we have coaches who specialize in teaching classical, jazz, opera, gospel, R&B, rock, pop and more.

Find a Vocal Coach Online or Near You

When you're ready to start voice lessons, you'll need to find a qualified vocal coach. A simple search for singing teachers in our directory will provide a list of available candidates both locally and online. Busy parents and their kids can both enjoy the added convenience and flexibility of online lessons.

You'll find a variety of vocal teachers with years of experience teaching and performing. Our instructors are vetted and background checked to ensure you have the best learning experience possible.

To narrow down the list, be sure to read through reviews left by other students. Before your first lesson, think about your goals for learning to sing and any special interests you have. Feel free to send a message to a prospective teacher and discuss these topics before booking your first lesson. Then, enjoy vocal lessons customized to help you reach your goals!

Tips for Singing with Allergies: How Do You Cope?

Spring is in full swing now, and for many, allergy season came right along with it.  Allergies can wreak havoc on your tone, breathing and vocal cord strength - and just like you should take special care when singing with a cold, taking extra precautions if you have allergies is just as vital. Allergy symptoms can vary person to person, but common woes include itchy, puffy eyes, sinus issues, a scratchy throat, and an itchy upper palate (roof of your mouth).  If you suffer from severe aller …
