Not at all. But perhaps there’s a song you want to sing, a tune you want to learn to play. Bring along the relevant music if that’s the case. Bring your instrument too, unless it’s a piano.

You can choose what you want to learn. I can choose what I believe is best for you. Typically, the happy medium will be somewhere in between.

In your first lesson we will get to know you and find out what you have done in the past with singing (don’t worry if that is nothing as yet), what you are doing at present, and what you would like to get out of singing lessons. It is important that we know your goals and how you feel about your voice.

We will then assess your voice with specific exercises and give you a regime to develop your voice long-term to improve Range, Stamina, Strength and also most importantly – to keep your voice healthy.

In your first lesson, we will have a discussion about your goals and aims and then I will conduct an assessment of your voice. We will tailor your lesson to what we hear during the assessment and explain more about technique as the lesson progresses.

In subsequent lessons, we will continue building upon the foundations we laid in the previous lessons and iron out any problems you may currently be experiencing. We will also hear the songs that you have been working on, and give you tools to fix anything you may be struggling with.

Your lessons will be recorded, so you can listen to them afterwards and continue to practice – with the knowledge that you are singing the same as you did in your lesson.

It is usually a good idea to have some water on hand for your lesson, as well as any songs you are working on, or want to work on.

Absolutely, Yes – I recommend that you do.

Most smartphones today have a record or voice-memo function, or you could video record the session. Equally you could purchase a portable digital recorder for less than £100. In my opinion, the quality on smartphones is generally good enough for you to hear the progression in your voice.

Yes, especially if it is in the correct key for your vocal range.

I would prefer that you do not. I would rather assess your vocal range and ability and then select a song according to how we want to develop you and your voice.
