Pamlea is an excellent instructor who wastes no time getting right into the technique required for proper singing. She has a vast array of tricks and tips which help you familiarize yourself with the muscles and movements required for the artform, and I would highly encourage any folk interested in learning to sing to seriously consider Pamela as an instructor.

Carolyn has and is exactly what I was looking for in a voice coach. Like me, her interests in the performing arts are broad. I felt both excited and comfortable with her. She is professional and easy to talk to. I can sense strongly that Carolyn is full of love and compassion. I am so excited for the next lesson! Here's to the new horizon and everything in between! :) Thank you Carolyn for reassuring me that my decision to switch careers was a wise decision indeed. Dance forward.

Private Singing Teacher

Singing is my passion and I have recently received my Master’s degree in classical vocal performance at the Mannes School of Music. Well-versed in many vocal genres, I have performed in opera, recital, musical theatre, and choir performances and competitions in the US as well as internationally. I have acquired many different tools for teaching through my studies and performance experience.

Students of all ages and levels are welcome. Styles that I teach include art song, opera, musical theater, and pop with a focus on building a solid and healthy vocal technique. My experience in dance, Alexander Technique, and acting informs my teaching approach. I include body awareness, character interpretation, and making the music come alive as an integral part of the lessons.

I love to teach and enjoy helping others discover their voices and achieve their personal singing goals. My voice teachers have greatly impacted my life and my goal is to inspire my students in a similar way. Everyone ...

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 y

...

ou 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!
