Singing in San Antonio: How to Get Started

by Joshua M. - San Antonio singing teacher (https://takelessons.com/profile/joshua-m50)

Interested in taking singing lessons in San Antonio? San Antonio has one of the most culturally diverse music scenes in the country. Visiting one of the many music venues, festivals, Broadway shows, regional/community theaters, or open mic nights will give you an overwhelming view of what the city has to offer. Situated just south of the “live music capitol of the world,” Austin, TX, San Antonio is sure to have a plethora of opportunity to make that newfound voice heard!

Here are a few resources to check out as you’re taking singing lessons in San Antonio:

Perform:

Open Mic Nights - As the 7th largest city by population in America, San Antonio has plenty of amateur mic nights hosted all throughout the city, on every night of the week. Getting up and playing an original or cover song for a few friends (or a few hundred) is a great way to be heard and hone your performance skills. This is a great opportunity to put your ongoing training to the test. Stay informed and book your time on openmicsanantonio.com.

Audition - San Antonio is rich with a thriving community musical theatre infrastructure. Take advantage of upcoming auditions, and take your Broadway singing to a deeper, more specific level. Sheldon Vexler Theatre, Boerne Community Theatre, Cameo Theatre, and the Woodlawn Theatre are among the most well-known in town. For those of you with a few years of experience under your belt, check out the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, where they open operas, ballets, musicals, concerts, and plays cast from a vast array of local talent. A great way to learn Broadway-style singing is to work through a specific show, identifying certain vocal colors, styles, and timbre, connecting the voice to the action of the piece. Stay informed of upcoming auditions through SATHEATRE (satheatre.com/eauditions).

Watch

Another great way to learn about singing and performing in general is to take in a concert. San Antonio is very rich with live music event venues. Ranging from the outdoor hipster bars to the chic and elegant concert halls, we have one of everything. One of the most well-known places featuring local talent in the city is Sam’s Burger Joint. After it was voted Best Live Music Venue in 2010, Sam’s renovated their already amazing setup, and has become, in my opinion, one of the best music venues in the country. They host shows up to five times a week, and it is a great way to meet other musicians growing in the same way you are. Check out their up-and-coming acts on samsburgerjoint.com.

Come and join one of the fastest-growing music cities in the country! Perform at the old stomping grounds of Christopher Cross, Ernest Tubb, and George Strait. Become part of the scene that so many songs are written about. Taking singing lessons in San Antonio is only the first step -- the next is to share your ongoing cultivation with a city who loves and survives on music!

Danny V.

San Antonio, TX

On our first lessons, a full vocal evaluation will be completed to see what exactly we need to work on developmental wise and customize a long and short term plan for best results.

About Danny

Danny is a singer, songwriter, motivational speaker, actor, and model. Danny has had a love for the performing arts since childhood. Every experience that Danny has from music videos, acting, working in bands A-Capella gospel and R & B groups, to American Idol, theater, auditioning, recording in a studio, working with a live crowd, a smaller intimate crowd hosting a show etc. you name it.

Danny believes that making a dream happen requires being solid on faith, being a visionary and also being ready to act and move on the impulse. Sometimes life throws us a curve ball and you have to be read
y to move. With life experience and hardships.

Danny appreciates and loves life and in everything he does he feels excited about any opportunity or door that comes his way.

Danny is currently self-employed. In Danny's spare time he loves to always be involved in self development in the entertainment arts and continues to pursue acting and singing. Danny is currently being represented by Condra Artista Talent Agency for the Austin and San Antonio region.

Danny states, In life I only see solutions and happiness in all aspects; I use my talents to express joy laughter and happiness through music poetry, motivational speaking, vocal lessons and comedy. I understand that sometimes you have to go through trial and error, but that's okay because that's how we learn to develop wisdom as people. I am forever humble and gracious about all my blessings because I know that someone out there is experiencing true misfortune, poverty and negativity. I surround my life, spirit thoughts, energy around people of positive driven energy and I project the same where ever I go. I love life and living!

I hired Danny early this year 2016 at my home studio in Austin,TX. I have been working on a recording studio project. With 6 songs I needed to record. I did three songs on my own. That took a week and a half and at least 5 to 6 hrs each. I looked around and hired a local coach who was very classical and just didn't get it. 3 hrs I will never get back. I found Danny online, hired him, and it was perfect...We warmed up with scales and light cardio. Very different I will say but effective. Anyways, we finished the 3 songs in just under 2 hrs. Wow! Straight to the point. So I sing Gospel music and had so many techniques wrong. A little bit of good habits goes a long way.

Danny has been working with my daughter for almost 5 years now and we love his approach. My daughter has learned to be a stronger performer, she knows how to interact with the crowd and also knows how to audition. She has landed a local lead part at her local theater production. My daughter looks forward to the classes.

Timothy B.

San Antonio, TX

The techniques that I employ will allow the singer more ease of vocal production and therefore an enhanced quality of sound. This leads to an Improvement in both tone and pitch.

About Timothy

Timothy , tenor, hails from San Antonio, Texas. Most recently, he was praised by the Houston Chronicle for his depiction of Nadir in Les Pêcheurs de Perles at Opera in the Heights. Soon after that he was engaged to sing for the San Antonio Opera as Ralph Rackstraw in H.M.S Pinafore. In the fall of 2011 he made his debut with Salt Marsh Opera as Elvino in La Sonnambula. Soon after he was engaged with Sparkling City Light Opera as Don Ramiro in La Cenerentola. He began his studies in 1998 at Texas State University where he received his Bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance in 2001. He is heard
in such roles as The Duke of Mantua in Rigoletto, Des Grieux in Manon, Count Almaviva in Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Rodolfo in La boheme; Franz in Les Contes d’ Hoffman, Ernesto in Don Pasquale, Albert in Albert Herring, Tamino in The Magic flute, Ezekiel Cheever in The Crucible, and Beppe in I Pagliacci.

*** Lesson Details ***
Classical technique is what I teach. Including breathing placement and musicianship. However that does not mean that I try to turn all my students into opera singers. The truth is you can utilize the classical technique in any genre of music. Trust me it will make a difference in your singing. I would be happy to discuss my methods in more detail. Thank you.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Office and studio space with seating for parents. He has Dogs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Its helpful if the student possesses a keyboard or piano but if not i can provide one.

*** Specialties ***
I have been both an opera/musical theater performer as well as a pop musician so I feel I am extremely well versed in many performance styles and how to teach them.

Robert M.

San Antonio, TX

I am a vocalist for numerous projects and love singing. I am more then happy to train my vocal techniques to students. I did part take in vocal tech classes.

About Robert

Music makes us do crazy things right? At first it was just a noise in your ear now, it is a skill you want to perfect. I won't sugarcoat anything I know it's a long road and we all can get better. What makes it so amazing it is something we get better at while having an amazing time doing so. Well, I am 26, San Antonio resident for almost 2 years now from Maine. Play 11 instruments, I am partnered with a company called YouTube. And I love music I could discuss it all day. And that's what I do. I currently work out of a recording studio connected to my home. Music Videos are shot here regularly
. As well as all around jam sessions with other groups. My favorite instrument would have to be the guitar or drums. I love trying to one up myself on cool acoustic guitar stuff but drums just bring out the emotions! I love all genres as all musicians should, you could find me jammin out to Florida Georgia Line to Killswitch Engage, to Carly Rae Jepson. I hope this gives you a good idea about me. Would love to hang out and play some music and show you the skillsets needed to make it in 2016 as a musician

Andrew F.

San Antonio, TX

Through my chorale experience, I learned techniques to improve various aspects of the voice, including flexibility, head voice and chest voice. I go over exercises with students to help develop desired aspects of their singing. If desired, I provide recordings to help my students go over exercises for singing and ear training. I believe that everybody has the ability to sing in some kind of way, no matter the vocal range. It is just a matter of finding a singing style that the student is interested in and developing it. I shape lessons around the student's interest in music and singing and explore ways the student can use their voice to create music, soulfully. If desired, I can include singing and playing with piano, guitar or ukulele.

About Andrew

I have experience working with people individually and in groups, as an undergrad Psychology intern, a cognitive skills trainer, and a counseling student. As an undergrad intern, I worked with elementary school children as a tutor and a mentor. As a counseling student, I have worked with various populations, from grade school students (grades 4-8; making healthier choices) to adults (stress, anxiety, career decisions, bereavement, etc.) to older adults in hospice care. I have facilitated groups with individuals suffering from a mental illness as well. Lastly, I worked with college students at
a local university as an academic coach. In this role, I helped students process concerns and create goals regarding developing time management skills, coping strategies for anxiety, study skills, information processing and motivation.

I hold education to such a high, passionate regard. It is what promotes a healthy, well-informed society. As an auto-didactic learner, I believe that everyone has their own way of learning. Therefore, my approach is one that is peculiar to each of my students. With so many possible goals, I strive to be as flexible as possible to work with ones specific to each individual I work with. I present concepts with the idea that the combination of experience, discourse and meaning-making is the key to learning. With an aversion towards cookie-cutter approaches, I maintain an open mind to my invariably evolving approach of sharing knowledge and insight with others. This comes with my continual seeking of growth in the art of teaching with consideration of the process of learning.

Further, I strive to create a warm, positive atmosphere that allows one to feel comfortable with making mistakes, with making progress and with being themselves. Fundamentally, this is my approach to working with people. I believe everyone should do what they love- nothing short of that. It is an absolute pleasure to be a part of one's process of pursuing any of the areas of interest in which I offer insight and guidance.

Personal Development Coaching: Using my insight gained as a counseling student, I am happy to offer my personal development coaching service. It focuses on providing a judgment-free and understanding atmosphere for one to reflect, process and work towards making personal changes (e.g. self-actualization, career, anxiety management, lifestyle) from an existential perspective. I believe such a space should be available for everyone, so I am especially happy to provide it.

My approach to personal development coaching is based on my therapeutic orientation called Gestalt Therapy (GT). The underlying idea of GT is that awareness is the key initiator of change. Awareness allows one to discern where such things as anxiety, unhappiness, ambivalence, etc. stem from. I believe that it is important for every human being to go through such a process so that peace and awareness within brings peace and awareness to the outer world. I am inspired by and influenced by the ideas of Carl Jung (Analytical Psychology- specifically the Psychological Types) and Carl Rogers (Client-Centered Therapy). I help facilitate the process in a genuinely humane, empathic and professional manner. If interested, please, see the details I have provided under Life Coaching. I work with grade school students and adults. I am absolutely loyal to the idea of confidentiality; therefore, I ensure that information of anybody I work with is not at risk of being shared with a third party.

Music: My experience during the pursuit of my minor in Music helped me build a foundation of knowledge of music theory and music pedagogy. During two semesters, I took private guitar lessons. Then, I took private piano lessons for three semesters. I took the opportunity to perform during weekly recitals throughout each semester. Taking private lessons with a few instructors was beneficial towards helping me to see various approaches to teaching music. Further, I was in choir for five semesters. Aside from giving private lessons, I presently teach a beginner ukulele class at a community education center. During lessons, I like to have jams with students to apply concepts, to promote creativity and to encourage performance.

Writing: As a lover of reading and writing, I know the value of expressing ideas. My focus in writing is creative writing (mostly short stories presently) and essays. Given my undergraduate and postgraduate experiences, I have written many academic papers, mostly in APA style. At the minimum, I help other aspiring writers develop their voice, develop their ideas, maintain consistency with writing and provide genuine feedback. Beyond that, my help with writing is limited to the goals of the aspiring writer.

Two important things: I strive to maintain a positive collaboration with those I work with. I believe this is one of the most important parts of the process. Also, I promote the idea of Soul. To me, Soul is any sincere display of passion. With Soul, we perform in a most genuine and graceful way. I personally believe that whether one is playing the piano, writing an essay, living life, singing, giving a speech or anything (necessarily peaceful), one should do it with Soul.

Lastly, I am open to: Going beyond my travel radius, at an agreed-upon adjusted rate; working with multiple students, at an agreed-upon adjusted rate; meeting at a public place that is convenient, if it is preferred; and meeting at a student's location, depending on the preferred time and the distance.

I mentioned everything that is above so that it may be known and understood. Feel free to send me a message if you have questions about any services I provide, my approach or anything!

I have to give Andrew 5 stars for the first lesson. He really cares about meeting goals specific to the person he is teaching. He started out with some basic exorcises that I can do at home and then we talked about how the lessons can be structured in the future for what I think I need to improve. He was very nice and I highly recommend him!

Ruth V.

San Antonio, TX

About Ruth

Knowledgeable, patient, direct, and experienced teacher of many musical instruments. Performed with Orchestral groups, and chorale groups. Performed on the Carniege Hall stage a few times with a few chorale groups. Studied violin from top performers from the San Antonio Symphony.

***Capable of working with students who have special needs.

I have a passion for the performing arts; every aspect of it. From learning a piece to committing it to memory.

Twelve Benefits of Music Education
Music Education Advocacy Resources on amazon.com

1. Early musical training helps develop b
rain areas involved in language and reasoning. It is thought that brain development continues for many years after birth. Recent studies have clearly indicated that musical training physically develops the part of the left side of the brain known to be involved with processing language, and can actually wire the brain’s circuits in specific ways. Linking familiar songs to new information can also help imprint information on young minds.

2. There is also a causal link between music and spatial intelligence (the ability to perceive the world accurately and to form mental pictures of things). This kind of intelligence, by which one can visualize various elements that should go together, is critical to the sort of thinking necessary for everything from solving advanced mathematics problems to being able to pack a book-bag with everything that will be needed for the day.

3. Students of the arts learn to think creatively and to solve problems by imagining various solutions, rejecting outdated rules and assumptions. Questions about the arts do not have only one right answer.

4. Recent studies show that students who study the arts are more successful on standardized tests such as the SAT. They also achieve higher grades in high school.

5. A study of the arts provides children with an internal glimpse of other cultures and teaches them to be empathetic towards the people of these cultures. This development of compassion and empathy, as opposed to development of greed and a “me first” attitude, provides a bridge across cultural chasms that leads to respect of other races at an early age.

6. Students of music learn craftsmanship as they study how details are put together painstakingly and what constitutes good, as opposed to mediocre, work. These standards, when applied to a student’s own work, demand a new level of excellence and require students to stretch their inner resources.

7. In music, a mistake is a mistake; the instrument is in tune or not, the notes are well played or not, the entrance is made or not. It is only by much hard work that a successful performance is possible. Through music study, students learn the value of sustained effort to achieve excellence and the concrete rewards of hard work.

8. Music study enhances teamwork skills and discipline. In order for an orchestra to sound good, all players must work together harmoniously towards a single goal, the performance, and must commit to learning music, attending rehearsals, and practicing.

9. Music provides children with a means of self-expression. Now that there is relative security in the basics of existence, the challenge is to make life meaningful and to reach for a higher stage of development. Everyone needs to be in touch at some time in his life with his core, with what he is and what he feels. Self-esteem is a by-product of this self-expression.

10. Music study develops skills that are necessary in the workplace. It focuses on “doing,” as opposed to observing, and teaches students how to perform, literally, anywhere in the world. Employers are looking for multi-dimensional workers with the sort of flexible and supple intellects that music education helps to create as described above. In the music classroom, students can also learn to better communicate and cooperate with one another.

11. Music performance teaches young people to conquer fear and to take risks. A little anxiety is a good thing, and something that will occur often in life. Dealing with it early and often makes it less of a problem later. Risk-taking is essential if a child is to fully develop his or her potential. Music contributes to mental health and can help prevent risky behavior such as teenage drug abuse, which often leads to institutionalization in a teen rehab.

12. An arts education exposes children to the incomparable.
