Considering your voice type and vocal range, what are the best singing lessons? Opera singing lessons for an open tone and classical technique? Private singing lessons so your singing coach can not only hear, but see how you’re singing? Skype singing lessons for ease of schedule, and access to a coach who may not be in your local area? Rock singing lessons for power and grit? Singing lessons for beginners so you can start from scratch? Online singing lessons like YouTube? Pop singing lessons? Classical singing lessons? You catch my drift, right? The list is long and arduous…
I’ll make it simple for you – healthy singing technique should cover ALL of the above, regardless of whether it’s ‘in person’, over Skype or even in YouTube singing lessons – you should walk away from your lesson feeling inspired, full of newfound confidence, have a new bag of technique under your arm and most importantly, allow you to sing in any style you like without strain.
The best singing lessons are healthy singing lessons
That’s right, no strain, no pointless “Va, Va, Va, Va” closed throat exercises and most importantly, start with a healthy foundation and the right approach rather than just scales after scales. Think about it, would a professional athletics coach just tell you to run laps hour after hour without teaching you about the right technique, a proper warmup and physical health? Of course not – singing is the same. If you’re not shown how to breathe using your diaphragm, how to modify your vowels, how to sing without strain and how to place your voice correctly, you’ll be running blind and no doubt – you’ll hurt your voice along the way with disasterous consequences. You need to start with a healthy foundation and build up to an easy, well designed warmup for your particular range and voice type – from there you can work on the fun and tricky stuff with the right techniques behind you.
Whether you’re looking into Rock singing lessons, Pop singing lessons, Classical singing lessons, Blues singing lessons, Metal singing lessons, RNB singing lessons – the technique is the same. A healthy, well developed proper vocal technique will allow you to sing with a full and extensive range so you can sing any style exceptionally well without strain!
