A REAL PROPER SINGING LESSON FROM A CERTIFIED SINGING TEACHER W/ 25 Years Performing Experience

REAL PROPER Singing lessons should first teach you the proper way/technique to breathe to deliver the correct sound production and notes - from the diaphragm!

Your teacher cannot just let you start singing without checking if your voice is in the proper placement - whether you are too throaty or nasal - or you might even be already singing/breathing from the diaphragm, but just not deep enough!

Even if you have the desire and the joy and the will to sing, if your sound is coming from strange wrong places in your body, then you are singing incorrectly, and probably even in a way that's harmful to your throat and health!

AURAL TRAINING & RUDIMENTS OF MUSIC


A proper singing teacher should also teach you the rudiments of music –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!! DO NOT SING LIKE A PARROT, JUST MIMICKING SOUNDS, and NOT EVEN KNOWING WHAT YOUR KEY IS OR WHAT NOTES YOU ARE SINGING!

If you have aural problems, e.g, your pitch is always off, flat, sharp, aside from the correct breathing techniques, this is usually corrected by learning to play with an instrument - in my course, I use a piano/keyboard or guitar. You will learn how to find out from a piano or guitar if you are out of tune or not.

So, in addition to proper breathing and pitching techniques, you will be taught how to know the keys to your songs, to sightsing, to count in the different time signatures, the different genres of music, etc. You can choose whatever song genre you want to sing in – be it pop, jazz, blues, theatre and classical.

A TEACHER WHO CAN ACCOMPANY YOU, A TEACHER WHO CAN SING AND PLAY

All of the above should be taught by a teacher who can accompany you on the piano or guitar, NOT using instrumental tracks/karaoke. Teachers who teach singing using instrumental tracks because they are not able read and play music themselves are not properly trained music professionals. They are inadequate and untrained music teachers! Your teacher must be able to read and write music herself! These untrained music teachers are just teaching you TO MIMIC and COPY SOUNDS LIKE A PARROT!

ALSO, beware of singing teachers who can only teach you how to sing in a classical style only! They might be able to play piano and accompany you, but they will not be able to teach you to sing popular songs in the proper modern pop way! The way pop songs are sang are so different from the classical songs! The placement and approach to singing pop and classical is very different - BUT both come for the diaphragm!


SINGING EXAMS & PERFORMANCE

If you also want your singing lessons to be accredited or certified, your teacher should be able to prepare you for the Trinity or ABRSM Singing Exams.

Last but not least, teaching you to project, to emote, to express and to learn the different approaches to the different styles of music, should also be taught! e.g, you cannot sing Adele or Lady Gaga or Rihanna in a classical head voice!!!! Vice versa, generally, classical songs should not be sang in a chest voice!

Lessons at $60 per session. Performance/Vocal coaching is also available for semi- professionals and professional singers, or those going for a singing audition. Beginner piano/Pop Piano lessons also available. Email me at ladybird@pacific.net.sg for any more enquiries, or call 96512921.
