Voice Lessons at On Stage Music Academy
Have fun while developing your voice, your confidence, and your skills performing. Feel the growth right away with the right kind of practice and great instruction. Have a stronger voice with improved tone, extend your range, practice microphone technique, be very comfortable performing and moving on stage, and have a voice that is protected from burn out. Here’s what our typical voice lessons look like:
If you watch movies and TV shows, you might’ve seen the typical singer warming up before their show making silly sounds like the classic, “me me me ME me me me…..”. This is called a vocal warm up. Although it can sometimes sound silly, these are VERY important exercises that not only warm up your voice to avoid injury, but can help extend your range and strength. Our voice lessons begin with warm ups specifically designed for YOUR voice and goals. Plus, we’ll show you how to do it at home!
All of our voice lessons are focused on song work. The best way to learn is by singing the songs that inspired you from the beginning. We’ll show you exactly how to hit those powerful notes in your favorite songs from Adele to Taylor Swift, Adam Levine to Robert Plant, and Steve Perry to Ed Sheeran. Whoever inspires you, we’ll focus on learning their unique sounds and techniques.
As you grow within the world of music and learn to sing your favorite songs, you’ll notice there are certain tricks and techniques that are shared throughout various styles. These techniques can be applied anywhere and anytime you’re singing. With the help of some music theory knowledge, we’ll help you build your arsenal of voice techniques that will help you improvise, wright, and generally reach goals beyond your expectations!
We know what you might be thinking… and yes, theory can be boring, BUT not the way we teach it. Our voice lessons only teach you what’s relevant with the kind of song/technique/style we’re working on in the moment. To put it simply, we don’t just teach HOW to sing, but WHY it works. You’ll walk away with a rich understanding of music and the ability to sing whatever’s on your mind, without necessarily knowing the notes and sheet music. (Although we’ll teach you how to read that, too!)
One of the most difficult barriers when learning to sing is knowing exactly how to practice. Sure, they all say “PRACTICE! PRACTICE! PRACTICE!”, but what do you practice? How do you know that what you’re practicing actually helps? At the end of our voice lessons, we’ll discuss what we learned along with WHY we learned it. We’ll let you know EXACTLY what you need to take home and practice before next week’s lesson so that you’re constantly growing.
