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

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!

My first time taking any type of vocal training before. I did this in hopes to be a better singer in my car. One day I was humming and a friend herd me and said I sounded amazing. I could feel my face turning red because I thought at the time I was alone. Anyways, months later... Guess who's doing karaoke on Tuesday nights?!!

I have been playing piano for 8 plus years and recently started singing and playing. Danny has shown me great techniques to positioning and utilizing a mic while playing and holding my notes while playing. As an added bonus, I even extended my upper range a whole octave higher, that was totally unexpected. After my first solo gig, I got amazing feedback. I am excited and ready to do more.

I have worked with vocal coaches since I was a kid and for the first time when working with Danny within the first lessons, I have already improved my range and control. Also just the basic use of parts of my voice that didn't even know existed. I am also learning how to use my mix and I am excited as it comes in handy in singing country pop.

Kate W.

San Antonio, TX

I've been teaching for over 11+ years. My teaching style is we go at the pace you want to go. I let the student tell me what their goals are, and we work around it.

My philosophy: everyone is their own person. No one is built the same!

About Kate

I graduated from UTSA in the Fall of 2008, with a Bachelor of Music with a Vocal and Piano Emphasis. I have been teaching private piano and voice for 11+ years. I am fun, energetic, and patient. It brings me such joy to be able to teach children something I am so passionate about!

*** Lesson Details ***
Students need to practice 15 minutes a day. They are required to complete everything that is assigned to them that week, and be prepared for their lessons for the following week. A beginner usually in 3-6 months should be familiar with reading the basic treble and bass clef staff, be famili
ar with dynamic markings, beginning to understand basic music theory, tempo and minimal sight reading. Voice students study basic vocal technique, and learning to sing properly.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I usually provide the books after the parents have paid for them. They should have their own instrument to work with.

*** Specialties ***
I use the Alfred method for piano.

Within minutes, I could tell that she was a very haopy person and that I would have no problem talking with her. She also challenged me to sing outside my range. I felt unsure but she encouraged me and I did okay. I can't wait for my next lesson.

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 tutoring students as well as 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 (making healthier choices) to adults (stress, anxiety, career decisions, bereavement, etc.) to older adults in hospice care, as well as facilitate groups with individuals suffering from a mental illness. Also, I teach a beginner ukule
le class at a community education center. Through my personal, academic and vocational experiences, I have gained insight about the process of working with people, educationally, musically and through goal setting (counseling and coaching). I will be completing my master's in Community Counseling in the fall of 2015 with an internship as an academic coach at a local university.

My approach is one that is peculiar to each of my students. As an auto-didactic learner, I believe that everyone has their own way of learning. Therefore, I use an approach that I feel works well for each of my students, with regard to whether a student thinks abstractly or concretely, for example. With so many possible goals, it is important to be flexible to work with each student's learning style. I present concepts with the idea that experience is the key to learning. I strive to create a warm atmosphere that allows students to feel comfortable with making mistakes, with making progress and with being themselves. I see the process as a wonderful opportunity for students to gain knowledge and awareness and to personally develop.

With my patience, positive energy, personal insight and passion for working with people, I help my students work towards progress while having a fun time doing it. I help my students create meaning by keeping the focus of the lessons based on a given student's interests and concerns.

Two important things: I strive to maintain a positive collaboration with my students so that learning and development may occur. I believe this is one of the most important parts of the process. It is essential for students to share the same commitment. 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, singing, giving a speech or anything (necessarily peaceful), one should do it with Soul.

Personal Development Coaching: Using my insight gained as a counseling student and my aforementioned experience working with people, I am happy to offer my personal development coaching service. It focuses on providing a safe and understanding atmosphere for one to reflect, process and work towards making personal changes (e.g. career, anxiety management, lifestyle) from an existential perspective. If interested, please, see the details I have provided under Life Coaching. I work with grade school students and adults (including college students).

My approach to personal development coaching is based on a therapeutic intervention called Gestalt Therapy (GT). The underlying idea of GT is that awareness is the key to change. My approach looks to help the individual gain self-actualization. This 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 and Carl Rogers. I help facilitate the process in a genuinely humane, empathetic and professional manner.

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.

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; and meeting at a public place that is convenient, if it is preferred.

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

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.

My family has been very impressed with Ms. Kara Smoot being our daughters vocal teacher for two years now! (2013-2015) She shows patience and kindness which has made our daughters learning experience fun. The health and safety of the vocal cords is very important to her as she teaches children to do proper exercises and sing within a healthy range. It is very important to her that while singing one feels happy inside, and she would always ask my daughter how she is feeling after singing .I am very impressed with her dedication to taking continuing education classes in voice state side and abroad. Her love for music and dedication to teaching makes her a ideal choice for anyone wanting to learn voice.
