MasterClass is an immersive online experience with a curriculum designed by the instructor. Each MasterClass includes extensive pre-recorded video content, a class workbook, interactive assignments, and community activities. The videos are viewable at any time, and they can be re-watched as many times as you’d like. In addition, many students use the community to share their thoughts, upload projects, and provide feedback for other students.
I teach students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied violin for about 2 years, studied and play mariachi for 18 years, and studied voice for 6 years. I can teach students to read music and pursue a career in mariachi or classical music. I can also teach students how to play any of the mariachi instruments (violin, trumpet, guitarron, vihuela, guitar) and teach them how to sing, as well.
Just bear in mind that HearAndPlay is very much Gospel & R&B/Soul oriented – this fact sometimes throws some people off. However, this does not mean that they only teach Gospel songs, so don’t run away scared now.
Theory and Ear-training I feel are very important to learn when trying to understand music. It just gives you a basic mathematical way of understanding how music works. It can be very frustrating to learn and takes some time to sink in so if you don’t want to learn it then that is great. Ear-training is cool because when you start to understand it you can actually hear music and not just listen to it. You can listen to a chord progression on the radio and go home and play it and also improvise over it.
Personally, I love all of the products that come from the company HearAndPlay and their Vocal Mastery System is great. I first heard of them when I was trying to learn how to play piano. I bought their course and absolutely loved it. They way they teach you is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. It is basic concepts broken down in an easy-to-understand way without too much technical mumbo-jumbo.

According to her profile, she now sings at open mic nights, teaches music lessons to kids, and performs at weddings in the Boston area. Boostrom seemingly alluded to her past struggles in a tweet on March 6, the day after she made it onto “˜The Voice …
We have an app called SingTrue for iPhone and iPad which is specially designed to help people learn to match pitch with their voice. It automatically chooses notes in your comfortable singing range and gives you a range of simple fun exercises to practice matching pitch. And instead of the momentary display of the digital tuner, you can actually see a graph of how your vocal pitch varied over time which gives you a clearer idea of how your pitch skills are developing.
Diction is how well you pronounce words while singing. It’s also known as “articulation.” In most contemporary music — especially pop, country, and rap — the lyrics are an integral part of the song. So as a singer, it’s your job to share those lyrics with your audience.
So finally, after a bunch of frustration and getting nowhere. I decided to bite the bullet and try out some of the paid online singing lessons. I could go after the super expensive options like Berklee’s full vocal course – I just couldn’t afford it. So I set out and tried the cheaper lessons. To my surprise – there were some REALLY GOOD options, right up my alley.

I can’t recommend Melody enough! Melody teaches my 11 year old daughter piano once a week and we absolutely love her! She is highly professional while remaining accessible and fun. She is intuitive and skilled in helping my child grasp and practice the formal structures of playing and reading music, but she also remains flexible and open to the non-classical side of music! It is rare to find a teacher of this caliber.
However, the best part of this course is the fact that you have access to real-life support. You can ask Aaron questions about anything – something you’re having trouble with, clarification on a certain concept, or whatever. It is the next best thing to actually having a vocal coach. I seriously recommend this product. You can read our full SSM review here first.
A singing teacher will be able to notice and correct bad habits that lead to injuries and negatively affect your sound. Additionally, the motivation and inspiration you can get from this type of guidance makes a huge difference in your learning process.
I have been teaching professionally for 5 years and privately for 10 years, specializing in beginner/intermediate/advanced musicians. I teach voice, violin, guitar, and trumpet. I specificaly teach mariachi music but I also have knowledge of other genres of music. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing/singing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. I believe learining music should be a joyful experience and one that will be a positive change in your life. I want my students to reach their musical potential and aspirations while having a wonderful time!
Toya is great! Exactly what I was looking for in a voice coach. She identified my areas for improvement, recommended exercises, and outlined a plan. She has excellent teaching skills and a delightful personality. I am very pleased.
I have taught acting to small children, teens, and adults in community, private, and collegiate settings. I taught acting at the legendary Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in New York City. My love of the arts has enabled me to study and perform in various cities throughout the US; including Los Angeles, where I studied at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, to Europe, Mexico, South America; then back to New York City, where I earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Acting from the prestigious Actors Studio Drama School.
Pairing lessons with song can help anyone retain information more easily. Music also is fun, so much so that kids may not realize they’re actually learning while singing. Matthew Freeman, development manager of “Sing up,” a national singing project …
I was ok at staying in tune. But some singers also struggle with that too. But they think singing in tune is a “natural talent” that some people just don’t have. “Natural Talent” is a mis-leading term.
Let me give you an example of how knowledge can begin to improve your singing immediately. One of the most important aspects of singing is breath-management, which just means having enough air and learning how to best use the air that you have. Well, while there is a lot to that, one thing is primary, and it’s something that you can do right now if you know it. And here it is.
So now, it’s your turn. I’d like to hear anything you have in mind about these courses. Have you had any experiences with online singing lessons? Which of them helped you improve your singing voice? Share your thoughts, I am open for discussions and comments. I would love to hear about them!
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.
Maureen has been teaching private voice and piano lessons since 2009, and currently runs her own studio, as well as traveling to students’ homes to teach lessons. She teaches anyone with an interest and willingness to learn, regardless of experience level.
Eric Arseneaux is the creator of the AApproach vocal training method. You have seen his clients on X-factor, in lead roles on Broadway and have been signed to major record labels. He delivers two different courses: phase I “Elite Singing Techniques” and phase II “Becoming A Natural Singer”.
When I started, online singing lessons were only just becoming available. Now there are loads to choose from and the quality of the lessons is out of this world. But are they better than getting a personal vocal tutor?
This is a simple way to practice hitting the right note and singing with good pitching. If you have a digital tuner for your instrument (e.g. a guitar tuner) you can use that, otherwise you can use an online tuner like this one.
Vocal strengthening exercises are designed to push your voice and increase its ability. To continue with the analogy, they would be the workout or the race, whereas the vocal warm ups are the stretch, the warm up.
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!
Over the course of his career Roger Love, creator of Singing Academy, has helped many well-known music artists & celebrities including John Meyer, Gwen Stefani, Selina Gomez, Rob Thomas (Matchbox 20), Natasha Bedingfield, as well as members of groups like Maroon 5, Tool, The Killers, The Jonas Brothers, PLUS the cast of Glee and many other movies and TV shows.
A lot of musicians just think they don’t have what it takes and they can’t do anything about it. They just throw in the towels and accept they aren’t really the singer type. But that’s where they are wrong, you can definitely work to become a better singer, a good singer, and some even become great singers. But good is good enough.
We all know those few amazing singers who are famous for their wide vocal ranges – Mariah Carey for her five octaves, Ariana Grande for her full voice and head voice notes, and Toni Braxton for those low sultry notes.
Once you have healthful singing down, you can structure your practice sessions something like this. Start with a 20-minute warm up session to work on your breath support, low and high range, chest voice and head voice, arpeggios, diction, or vibrato.
