Vocal Coaching & Artist Development

I have been teaching singing for 10+ years. I've enhanced singing lessons into a complete program of vocal mastery/songwriting/production.

I am an active music artist, music production/audio engineer college graduate, "The voice" ex-participant and vocal producer with vast experience in online music marketing.

Today's music industry requires to be prepared and aware of its fundamentals. Voice mastery, digital distribution and streaming, producing, audio recording, royalties, interpretation, social media, songwriting, copyright, are all random pieces of a puzzle you must put together in order to succeed.

I've been making music for over 22 years and I've felt the pain of figuring out this puzzle by myself. I've been copyright stolen, false magic lesson invested, lousy contract scammed, paying to perform, falling short of budget, trading soul for fame and many other beauties of this industry in my journey to try to make a living out of ...

We Briefly discuss and establishing the learning goals for the course based on the visual literacy,technical,and intellectual competencies the students should achieve by the end of a period is ideal for me to design the course or update an existing course for the student's desired outcomes. The syllabus and the schedule are completed along with a comprehensive strategy for what will take place during class. lessons include: physical pre warm ups, breathing exercises, vocal warm-up exercises and technical work, solfeggio (sight-singing), ear training, repertoire musical coaching , speech coaching, preparation for auditions and performances.

My only job is to help you find your own voice!
And to have a lot of fun along the way!

We record you all the time in a recording studio environment. Then you will benefit from getting used to that voice that only you can hear. This is like having your own producer!

I am no throat specialist, but, I have accompanied singers for decades and may have some suggestions to help you. From breathing to posture to intonation, to energy, enunciation and more, there is a lot to cover.

I will accompany your singing at the keyboard all the time. I will also encourage your recording with karaoke tracks as well. Listening to yourself is exciting and helpful. Get over that insecurity. Come sing with confidence!

An integrated approach:
Music almost always involves several skills. Below are some of the complementary skills that I can help you with. In my Semper Method, we always address several of them at every session. For example, we record, sing and play all the time. To sing you ...

My son Liam has been Randy’s student for almost a year. Liam’s superpower is autism, and that means we work in “Liam time.” Randy is great at reading Liam and does an amazing job of helping us balance work on Liam’s music and his voice acting. Randy has taken us far, and we’re excited to see how much farther Liam can go in the next year with Randy guiding the way! I highly recommend Randy L, especially if your student faces extra challenges!

My son is a BEGINNER beginner. Rodrigo is a very nice guy and seems to know his stuff very well. I would give him 5 stars but I don't think he realized that my son needed the basic, basic 1st lesson (i.e. how to hold the instrument). We've only attended one session so this is fully based on that one lesson. I'm sure he'll adjust his teaching from here on out.

The voice is the grandest instrument of all instruments. For 20 years, Steven B is one of the best instructors out there. He teaches in students’ homes across the United States as easily as in the Coronado Music Studio. Provide teaching at all stages. All skill levels taught. Complete beginners are welcome. Mr. Bruce intersects methodologies of Bel Canto, Alexander's technique, and the secrets of singing. By the way, Alexander’s technique can bring back to health a damaged speaking voice, as well as keeping the singer’s voice sound and pain free. Broken down, singing involves three areas: mind, technique, and performance. There are many technical concepts to train in singing. From vowel shapes, to understanding consonants, to landing gently on high notes. Great technique leads to great expression. Steven B is skilled in educating a student for an audition or performance. The chief purpose of singing is to bring oneself joy. Prepare to learn a lot and have fun!

Private Singing Classes Near You

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 singing lessons are the best first step. Singing brings people together, whether in choirs, concerts or music festivals, but it also intimidates a lot of people. 

Many mistakenly believe they're tone-deaf. Although tone-deafness is a real, physical condition that prevents the brain from distinguishing different pitches, most people who believe they're tone-deaf just need more practice. In fact, only about three percent of people are truly tone-deaf. So you might as well jump in and join the chorus by signing up for voice lessons near you!

Why Take Voice Lessons Near You?

Taking singing classes near you 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

Music is often used for healing purposes in music therapy because it imparts positive emotional and mental benefits. Adults who participate in music display sharper cognitive abilities and a better memory function. It's 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 Near You

Singing is a much more complex art than it first appears, so if you want to learn to sing, 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. 

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 near you, you'll learn to match pitches, carry a tune, and more. 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 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 further develop your basic skills. 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, but 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.

Learn to Sing with a Vocal Coach Near You

When you're ready to start voice lessons, you'll need to find a qualified vocal coach near you. A simple search for singing teachers in our directory will provide a list of candidates who are available locally and online. 

You'll find a variety of vocal teachers with years of experience, both teaching and in the music industry. 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. Discuss these with your teacher so you can enjoy lessons customized to help you reach your goals!
