ARE YOUR SINGING LESSONS THE REAL PROPER SINGING LESSONS?

PROPER and PROFESSIONAL Singing lessons, where you will be taught the proper way to breathe and pitch from the diaphragm, - NOT FROM THE NOSE OR THROAT NOR BY SHOUTING - and learn the rudiments of music, and sing in the appropriate way for the style of music you like (be it pop, classical, jazz, R&B, etc) in this way, you learn to project your voice and make it more solid, extend your range, pitch accurately, and your voice should becomes\ clearer and smoother, and you also really learn to read music like real musicians do.

The human voice is an instrument, and whatever you are singing, there are the corresponding notes to it. You should learn the notes to what you are singing!! So, in addition to proper breathing and pitching techniques, you will be taught the rudiments of music (using the piano/keyboard) - for you to learn to read notes, to know the keys to your songs, to sightsing, to count and differentiate time signatures, the different genres of music, etc. You can choose to sing in whatever song genre you want be it pop, jazz, blues, theatre and classical.

If your teacher has no knowledge of reading music, and cannot accompany you, and is grabbing sounds from the air to teach you, this is inadequate singing training! All of the above techniques and rudiments should taught with the teacher playing the piano for you. She/He should teach the techniques using scales, while checking your pitch against the piano/keyboard/guitar. How will your teacher and you be able to tell if you are in pitch except if you pitch it against an instrument? Your teacher should teach you the proper voice placement - not in the nose nor throat - and teach you techniques that will slowly develop strength in your voice. She should teach you note reading, and she should be able to accompany you while you are singing. Teachers who teach singing using only instrumental tracks and are not able read and play music themselves to play the scales and accompany you, are just teaching you TO MIMIC and COPY SOUNDS LIKE A PARROT!

Classical singing tones are different from pop and jazz tones! Your teacher cannot let you be doing pop songs with your head or choir voice only. These are used mainly in classical music! Neither should she teach you to sing classical music with your chest voice only. Pop and jazz and R&B call more for a "conversational" style of singing, that calls for special techniques THAT DO NOT MAKE YOUR SHOUT. A proper singing teacher should teach you how to sing with your chest voice without shouting and hurting your voice! Shouting is bad for the throat and proper singing teachers should not let you shout and hurt your throat. Just as to play classical piano has a different style and approach from playing jazz and pop piano, you cannot be using classical techniques and approach to sing pop songs! Classical singing has their own style that should not be used for pop jazz and R&B, and vice versa.

For SAFE AND PROPER SINGING IN THE CORRECT STYLE, you must have a teacher who can recognise and demonstrate both! If you might want your singing lessons to be accredited or certified, you have the option of taking the Trinity Guildhall or ABRSM Singing Exams. You may also, of course, take lessons for leisure or other professional objectives
Lessons are at $70 per session from a Trinity Guildhall accredited seasoned professional singer with 25 years experience performing in Singapore and internationally and with 12 years teaching in local and international schools . Performance/Vocal coaching is also available for semi- professional and professional singers, or for those going for a singing audition.
