We offer vocal lessons for all skill levels, ages 7 and up. Our standardized curriculum covers key elements of vocal instruction, from warm-up exercises and breath control to high-range technique, harmonies and more.
Remember to practice even on your busiest days. As with physical exercise, even a 10-minute workout each day is better than nothing. If you have a commute, try practicing in the car. If you don’t have much time alone, ask your voice teacher for a few quiet exercises that you can do.
As both a top music conservatory and large private university graduate, I have a unique skill set and vantage point when it comes to teaching music. Based on a traditional approach, I adapt my lessons for the 21st century and provide a well-rounded music education including performance, technology, theory, and musicality.
This module is all about advanced vocal techniques and voice strengthening exercises to help take your voice to the next level. If you have been practicing diligently throughout the entire course, you will likely see great progress in your singing voice by this point.
If you notice the keys on the piano, note that the pitch “do” occurs more than once along the keys. The entire range of notes from one “do” to the next is called an octave. As your vocal range expands, you may achieve the ability to sing several octaves. To practice this, a piano would be very helpful. Press the key of the note “do” on the piano. This may be anywhere, depending on the type of instrument you have, such as a soprano, alto, or mezzo. Note that your voice will be traveling in an uprising fashion, so choose the spot accordingly. Start from a pitch you can comfortably sing. If you are an alto, it is best to start at a spot further down on the piano. Likewise, if you sing soprano, start higher. Mezzos should find a spot somewhere in between, midway throughout the keys. If you do not know your vocal type, make an estimate and find what works for you. Press the key “do” on the piano, and match pitch with your voice. Hold out this note as long as you comfortably can. Then, press the “do” one octave higher than the one you were singing and match pitch, holding it out accordingly. If you find this is too high for you, either start lower from the beginning, or you could try half of an octave by going from “do” to “so” instead. After singing the higher note “do” match pitch with the lower one again and sing it out to a comfortable extent. If you are a beginner, this may be enough octave training for the day. If you choose to persevere and move on, try singing out the note “re” as long as you comfortably can, then matching pitch with the higher note “re” and holding it as long as you may. Then hold out the lower note “re” once more. Try this practice with the notes “mi, fa,, so, la, ti, etc. depending on the stretch of your range. This exercise is intended to lengthen and strengthen the range of your vocal chords. Please be cautioned of straining your instrument.
Sirens/Kazoo Buzz: Improves the resonant focus of the sound and continues work with maximal stretch on the vocal folds. The mouth postures are easily made by pretending you are sucking in spaghetti with an inhalation. On exhalation make the “woo” sound. It will be a buzz like sound. Hold the sound steady for 2-3 attempts. Now use the woo sound to go up and down the scales.

Program to help your singing voice now on Android! You will learn how to sing with several exercises, inspired by Guitar Hero! The app tells you how you should sing indicating the correct note, and shows your score according to right pitch. An intuitive way to learn music without knowing sheet music, but very useful even for professional singers.
If you feel comfortable after awhile, ask to join the church choir. Then you can start learning more demanding and challenging vocal music, and you will have an opportunity to learn, practice and rehearse with some structure and some goals in mind, every Wednesday night and Sunday morning, for free.
Not all Vocal Coaches are Voice Teachers and vice-versa. A Voice Teacher is a technician: our main focus is on singing technique and the nuts and bolts of teaching a singer how to produce a healthy, powerful sound. To do this, Voice Teachers give an understanding of breath support and resonance by guiding students through vocal exercises and breath exercises. We help students put that technique into practice in their repertoire. A Vocal Coach, on the other hand, is a Pianist, Conductor or Music Director who is an expert in a chosen type of repertoire. They coach the student’s songs from the standpoint of interpretation, intention, genre, and musicality. They are generally not trained singers and, while they often have some knowledge of vocal technique, it is not their primary job to teach a student how to sing the song nor are they trained to fix the vocal issues giving a student problems in the song. It’s their job to help a singer take their interpretation and performance to the next level once they’ve worked the technique with their Voice Teacher.
Whether you are looking for a vocal coach but cannot afford one, or you are looking for online singing lessons, the Superior Singing Method will truly help improve your singing voice. Buying this product and going through the course diligently is highly recommended.
This is perfectly normal although not desirable! Yes there is! The most important thing to do during this transition is to practice vocal technique exercises to strengthen your voice and help with this transition. Start with these https://www.caricole.com/singersgift – these exercises are transforming singers voices easily and effectively. They include specific exercises to strengthen your voice and the “larynx pull down” exercise that will help with cracking! Keep us posted on your progress!
This doesn’t mean that you have to practice for long periods of time. Make shorter practice sessions strategic yet fun! Create your own silly warm-ups — try singing with “nonsense” words, or make a simple song your warm-up.
I know that there are still many out there who opt for traditional ways of learning how to sing, and that means hiring vocal coaches or taking classes. But more and more now prefer to learn on the Internet. The idea of singing lessons online may seem odd, but as I will show it has a lot of benefits.
You will start with the fundamentals of singing in the first module, and then progress to breath management, mastering vocal tone, improving pitch, signing with power and resonance, hitting higher notes, improving vocal agility, and finally learning techniques for strengthening your voice.
Hello! My name is Kelsi Phillips and I love music. Music is everything to me. It’s why I get out of bed in the morning, and something I love even more than just listening to it, is playing it. I love it and I would love to share my passion for it with you. We can do anything we put our minds to and I believe that if you want to become the best musician in the world, you can! I teach everything by ear, I don’t read music. But a lot of people can’t do that which is amazing in my book. But I will do the best I can to help you on this journey to learning the greatness of music.
Here’s where things get somewhat tricky, especially when it comes to hiring for a position like a Vocal Coach. These days, if you are deciding on a restaurant to have dinner at, you look at Yelp to see what others thought of their dining experience. If you are considering going to the movies, you may browse online to catch up on what Critics thought. There are dozens of examples of times when you can find reviews relating to something you want to spend your money on but it’s difficult when it comes to hiring someone. There is no rating system and there probably aren’t published reviews available on the internet but you can ask for references. Remember, when you first meet with a potential Vocal Coach, it is something of a job interview!
Basically, you need to record yourself and practice often. If your like me, you will hate the sound of your own voice at first. Don’t worry, you will get better. Most importantly, don’t hurt yourself. If you find a teacher that claims singing is “athletic”, find a new teacher.
Hi, I’m Josh and I am learning all the components of singing. I have fairly large vocal range, however, I would like to know how to sing in harmony. Some excersises, tips, and rules of harmony are the things that I am looking for. Does anyone know where I can get this? Thank you.
The basic solfege method is a system of symbols for each of the solfege pitches. The symbol for “do” is a fist. The symbol for “re” is a slanted hand with the side of your hand facing towards you, as should your thumb. Your finger tips should point slightly to the left. The symbol for “mi” is a flat hand as if you were placing it on a desk, and the side of your hand should face you once again, as should your thumb. The symbol for “fa” is a thumb’s down symbol with the inside of your thumb facing outward. The symbol for “so” is a flat hand with the palm facing outward. The symbol for “la” is a cupped hand that faces downward. The symbol for “ti” is a fist with the index finger pointing up and slightly to the left. Then, bring your index finger back into your fist to make “do.” You could attempt to master this method by practicing it over and over to gain the ability to symbol the notes faster. This could be an enjoyable and inspirational way to practice, as it helps to signal the notes while singing each of them. See what works for you. 🙂
Hi, My name is Stephen Cook. I am a 57 year old guitarist and guitar instructor with over 47 years playing and instructing experience. I learned to play by watching other guitarists, listening to record albums, and studying guitar instruction books. I love to teach all age students. I teach all the guitar basics including: how to hold the guitar, tuning, the finger numbers, string numbers and names, the fret board, open chords, barre chords, and more. I not only teach the lesson, but also provide printed lesson material for the student to take home and practice on in between lessons. I am al

Our philosophy is simple. We make learning music fun, and are committed to the integrity of a quality music education. In addition to a foundational education, students are given ample opportunity to make music with others. The confidence gained by learning music parlays with other areas, giving students the self-assurance to take on new challenges.
I’m sad to leave when our two hours are up yet I’m also on a massive high: all that air flowing through your body gives you an endorphin rush not dissimilar to a session in the gym. Have I mastered singing Don’t Stop by the time I leave? Far from it, but I feel I’ve gained a good grasp of the basics. And although I detect an element of sarcasm in my wife’s comments when I get home – “bloody hell, it’s Scott Walker!” – it’s undeniable that a whole range of previously unattainable baritone notes has been opened up to me.
hello I am 15 and I need some more advice to make my voice sound professional and sometimes I sing to myself and sometimes I tell myself no is there like a special herb I can make that could help my voice sound like a singer
HI Brittain – you are holding your neck and throat muscles are too tight. Lift your chest high, relax your throat and neck and sing. For more help book a Cole Power Hour with me and I can fix it for you in one session!
I liked the idea, but the execution is severely lacking in what could be considered instructional guidance. There is no description of what you are supposed to do or achieve in the exercises. There is no explanation of the score you recieve, or how to improve. The songs from which you chose your goal are very limited, and yet you need to have your own Spodify account to use the entire song. On top of that, the limited list doesn’t have a trade off, such as added lyrics to follow or well-separated vocal and backing tracks. When it’s time to sing with the music, you can barely hear the instruments. Very disappointing.
Digitally or through online singing lessons (e.g., via Skype or Facetime) in which audio or video is transmitted of the instructor singing and the student imitates the instructor. The instructor can also hear the student sing and provide coaching on her or his singing. In most cases, there is a small delay in the audio transmitted during digital voice lessons so the instructor is not able to actively accompany the student. Instead, the voice teacher plays a tone or chord and demonstrates the scale or exercises which he wishes for the student to sing. The student then imitates the instructor. The instructor can then modulate the scale upwards while the student follows singing the same scale pattern.
This style of church music deliberately uses simple melodies in simple rhythms, with a narrow range of pitches that are easy for non-trained singers to sing. Once you get comfortable with it, you can try learning one of the four-part harmony lines in the hymn arrangements. This will be your introduction to harmonizing.
Music has been a very important part of my life for a long time. I began taking piano lessons at age 9 and also started as a church musician that same year. Some people would say I was a very fast learner! I was, and still am, very interested in every aspect of music. I began singing in church and school a few years after that. I have played and performed a variety of styles of music but I have the most experience with Christian music, classical, pop and R & B. I am confident that I can teach you whatever style you are interested in! I am currently a high school choral director and a minis
To other singers, a lot more practice goes into achieving that pitch-perfect sound. A good singer must master breath control, posture, diction, stage presence, and more important techniques. Don’t be discouraged though – with the right guidance anyone can learn to sing!
HI Gary, Sounds like you might be manipulating your voice to sound like Toby or Trace and that you’re not really in control of your voice? I would highly recommend training to strengthen your voice and develop consistency! If you can’t afford a vocal coach right now – start here with these exercises. https://www.caricole.com/singersgift – they have helped thousands of artists with their voices. Hope that helps! Good luck!
– Even though the lessons are very affordable compared to face-to-face lessons and compared to other online singing programs, 99$ is still a large amount of money, so think for yourself if you are really into singing.
Developing your mix voice is absolutely essential if you want to sing higher notes with more power, have better vocal tone, sing with less strain, and smooth out the transitions in your voice while you sing. With Superior Singing Method you get uniquely effective vocal exercises that will develop your mix voice so that you have a smooth, blended voice free from cracks and breaks. You will be able to sing continuously across your entire vocal range with excellent control and will be able to sing higher notes with better tone and pitch.
Another important note about solfa is that it’s the key to sight-singing music easily. This means that you can confidently go along to a choir or other singing group and know that if they hand you sheet music you don’t need to panic! You can use solfa to know what notes to sing and your newfound vocal control to know you’ll be singing them right.
I have a passion for singing! I’m a 15 year old girl and the only job I have ever wanted was to be a singer. The thing is, I dont know how good I am or if I can make my goals happen. I would like to have a more controlled voice for sure. Is there any more tips you can help with so that I can learn to control my voice? Also, with my pitch. I don’t know if it’s because I dont open my mouth enough or if I am trying to hard but I cant seem to make myself happy with my pitch. Any tips or suggestions? Thank you! xx
A vocal coach, also known as a voice coach (though this term often applies to those working with speech and communication rather than singing) is a music teacher, usually a piano accompanist, who helps singers prepare for a performance, often also helping them to improve their singing technique and take care of and develop their voice, but is not the same as a singing teacher (also called a “voice teacher”). Vocal coaches may give private music lessons or group workshops or masterclasses to singers. They may also coach singers who are rehearsing on stage, or who are singing during a recording session. Vocal coaches are used in both Classical music and in popular music styles such as rock and gospel. While some vocal coaches provide a range of instruction on singing techniques, others specialize in areas such as breathing techniques or diction and pronunciation.

“”Roger Love‘s Singing Academy has taught me how to sing with confidence. His lessons are really easy to follow, even when teaching tricks that I thought only professionals could pull off. Roger is better than any other voice teacher I‘ve had because his teaching style is funny and engaging, and I could take each lesson as many times as I wanted. I‘m really happy I took this course, and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to take their singing to the next level.”
Hello, well I’m 17 and a dude and I really do love music and the way I can connect to it… but I also have severe anxiety and am so nervous about anything and everything…. I’ve been trying to teach myself to sing better and play a guitar but it’s way too much to teach myself…. any tips on here on where to go? I honestly Don’t Think I sound that great and I’m really Self concious about it But I Feel Like If I Had A Better Understanding of it all
Joel is a great teacher. He has patience, keeps on track, gives good feedback, and knows all kinds of music. He has taught me bass, and vocals. I am a lead in my school musical and I owe it all to what he has taught me! I would recommend Joel for anyone who wants to learn about music. He is a very good, reliable, professional… all the stuff you look for in a teacher.

My goal for my students is to grow in their love for music, while building a strong foundation of musical skill. I own and teach from my commercial studio in Midlothian, Perfect Pitch Music Academy (www.perfectpitchmusicacademy.com), as well as a second studio in Duncanville. My studio offers piano, voice and guitars lessons. We have three recitals throughout the year. My students have fun during lessons while at the same time learning the musical theory and technique needed to progress!
To be honest, when you’re hitting the higher notes, you should be shifting from your chest to your head voice anyway, so you asthma is less of a problem for higher notes and more of a problem when singing constantly low. Primatene tablets at Walmart (they’re behind the counter so you have to ask but they’re not prescription) before you sing for a long time will help a lot.
I’m going to say it’s close to impossible for anyone to teach you to sing, but reasonable for someone to help you sing better. Start on your own. Second, anyone who sings period, even those not as good as you, can help you. Here are some tips, though…
Learn how to use your art to express your voice and challenge the opinions of those around you, while staying within your comfort zone. Christina challenged the norms of sexuality and shame with her music. What will you talk about with yours?
The doctor will use a “Scope”- a little video camera on the end of a teeny cord- to determine if you have nodules or some type of tissue damage. He/she will also determine if you have an infection or allergy that has made your vocal cords inflamed. (Females with hormonal problems can have their vocal health yo-yo about.) The E.N.T. should check if you have GERD- acid reflux- where stomach acids are burning your vocal cords. Once all medical conditions are ruled out or treated, see a voice teacher who can evaluate if you are straining, if your song keys are wrong, and such. Then take a few months of lessons- 3 should do it,- and reverse any bad habits. You also need a custom warm-up routine to use before performing. Ask your voice teacher to evaluate your live show. You could be doing something different up there that is blowing you out. Read About Singers Secrets for maintaining a healthy voice.
This happens because your voice actually sounds different to you than other people. This is due to the physics of sound being carried inside your body as well as outside through the air when you hear it. When you hear a recording you are actually hearing what other people hear when you sing.
