FAQs

Can anyone learn to sing in tune?

Yes. Many people have been told that they are ‘tone deaf’ but in truth they have been shamed and then they  stopped trying. Singing in tune involves listening and practice, which uses fine motor memory to learn to ‘feel’ the pitches internally.

Do online lessons really work as well as in person?

Yes. There are some strong benefits to online lessons. 1. You don’t need to travel to lessons. 2. You can see your teacher face to face and you can see what they are doing. 3. The mirror effect for singing can help singers find their posture and placement. 4. Music lessons can be recorded for future study. 

But really? Can I become a great singer?

Well, it depends. To become a great singer, you need to really understand your voice, your presence, what you do well, and your ideal range. You cannot just idolize a singer and hope you can cover them well.

Singing is like athletics. It takes understanding your voice, finding your ideal musical persona as well as understanding the uniqueness of your voice. 

What age is best for starting voice lessons?

People used to think that voice lessons should wait until the teen years but that has been debunked, thankfully! If your child has an interest in singing, let them sing! I have had a student who started at age 5. 

What age is best for starting piano lessons?

It really depends on the child. Young children need to have some dexterity in the hands and focus during lessons for practicing at home. 5-6 for some but it’s never too late to start anytime.

I'm not interested in performing. Can I still take lessons?

Yes! Many people take lessons because they want to explore their voice as music therapy. Singing is soothing and calming. Science has validated that singing brings many health benefits.
