What happens in a Voice lesson?
In a voice lesson typically half or more of the lesson is spent working on warm ups and technique. The second part of a lesson is spent integrating these techniques to learn and practice songs.
✣ Vocal technique is a series of voice exercises tailored to the students needs. The exercises usually focus on things such as breath, posture, singing with a rich sound, articulation and strengthening.
✣ Giving an emotionally compelling performance
✣ Learning vocal improvisation
✣ Live performance skills
✣ Combined guitar and voice lessons (recommended 1 hour lesson)
✣ Songwriting, how to write your own song
What you can learn in a Guitar lesson?
Proper basic technique (posture, finger placement, movement), your favorite songs, tuning your guitar, chords, strumming patterns, melodies, finger picking and guitar mechanics (changing strings etc.). You can also learn how to write songs!
Specialty chords and how to create your own chords, more complex rhythmic strumming patterns, difficult finger picking patterns, alternate tunings, how to play by ear and jamming.
Combination Guitar and Voice lessons
For those that would love to play, sing and/or write, taking combination lessons can be extremely rewarding. For beginners to professionals of all ages. You can work on:
✣ Playing and singing at the same time
✣ Finding songs that will suite your voice and playing style
✣ Professional Development
If you are new to both guitar and voice (beginner), I recommend starting with Voice OR Guitar for the first 2-4 months and then adding the second instrument for a 1 hour combination lesson.
