What to expect for your first voice lesson
We will go through a brief set of rhythmic and pitch matching exercises and you will sing a song that you bring with you.
I do not have any expectations about your ability, and you can be at any stage in your vocal development.
A typical lesson includes:
- A warm up
- Exercises for vocal technique
- Songs and preparation notes for your next lesson
The amount of time spent on each of these areas depends on your vocal objectives.
What to bring to your first voice lesson
- At least one piece of music that you would like to sing at the lesson. It can be a folk song, classical piece, musical theatre selection or popular song
- Two copies of the piece; one for you to look at and the other for me. I can make notes on my copy, giving you things to work on
- A recording device if you would like to record the lesson. This is optional
- A bottle of water. It is always good to keep the vocal folds well lubricated. Also drink water before your lesson
- The completed Registration Form. By completing this form before you arrive, you save valuable lesson time
- Full payment for the first lesson. This should be paid at the beginning of the lesson
- Most important: Always come with a good attitude and be ready to learn
