Private Singing Teacher

PLEASE NOTE: I DO NOT TEACH REGULAR SINGING LESSONS! I DO NOT TEACH VOCAL PRODUCTION, BREATH CONTROL, RANGE INCREASE OR ALL THE OTHER TYPICAL THINGS THAT SINGING TEACHERS FOCUS ON. What I DO help with are the MUSICAL and TECHNICAL aspects of singing only. Many other singing teachers send me their students for help with these difficult issues because they are my field of expertise. These include pitch control (if you sing flat), how to sing harmony, self-accompanying techniques, sight singing and performance anxiety.

About Howard

I enjoy working with complete beginners as well as seasoned professionals. I teach classical and popular styles. I specialize in teaching learning how to learn, sight-reading, technique, improvisation, chord-reading, songwriting. One of my specialties is to help you break through your most stubborn

Howard is very caring and detailed oriented. He really knows how to inspire and encourage children to learn piano. He makes it challenging and fun!
Edward
Howard's approach is patient while at the same time he actually leads my son forward - not just listening to what he practiced that week. Howard does not make the weekly lesson a "test" but rather a session to work together and my son enjoys the lessons instead of worrying if he prepared enough.

We moved from Los Angeles so we chose to transition from lessons in Howard's house to weekly lessons online - it continues to work beautifully.

Howard can accommodate any style of student - I know because I took lessons from Howard myself until my work built up too much to continue.

I recommend Howard without any reservation.

About Carolyn

Coming from a large extended family in Hawaii, I was surrounded by luau music, kachi-kachi dancing, Japanese bon dances, handsome local guys singing and playing their guitars and my aunties strumming their ukes and singing old songs. I reveled in walking alone in Nature or playing piano and singing

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!
