We truly believe that singing is a great joy in life. A lot of people love it, not many pursue their passion and work on their voice. We wanted to share with you just some of the benefits of taking singing lessons at Freedom Music Studios.
LEARN FROM THE PROFESSIONALS
All of our vocal coaches are tertiary qualified, have taken (and continue to take) extra, specific training in voice teaching and have worked extensively in the entertainment industry. Between them, they have experience across all genres and have a wide range of contacts that can assist you with your needs. Our singing teachers still actively take lessons and train their voices daily so as to be the best possible role models for their students.
THE FREEDOM TO CHOOSE YOUR REPERTOIRE
We allow our students to choose almost any song they wish to learn in their singing classes. As long as it isn’t too obscure and the lyrics are age appropriate, we are happy to help you learn all your favourites. After all, if you don’t enjoy the song you are learning, it makes it very hard to practice!
KEEPING TECHNIQUE FUN AND INTERESTING
All our voice coaches are passionate about the importance of great technique; however, we also understand that sometimes the students are not! That’s why we have adapted many techniques to keep the voice training section of each lesson as fun and engaging as possible. Our singing teachers also believe there needs to be a certain understanding from our students that in order to sing the song you have to do your training, aka your vocal exercise. We know sometimes training can be a little boring, but it also gets results!
A SENSE OF BELONGING MOTIVATES STUDENTS TO IMPROVE
A big part of our singing classes is the opportunity for students to participate in monthly performances. Our aim is to provide a community for students, enabling them to meet and become friends and then hopefully perform songs together.
Students learn a great deal by watching the style and creativity of other people. When students regularly participate in our performances they are driven to practice regularly and attend lessons diligently as they always have a performance to prepare for. There’s also a flare in their creativity as they feel inspired by other students and take opportunities to prepare items together. Student collaborations occur across all age groups which is a wonderful learning experience for all involved.
IMPROVE CONFIDENCE AND SOCIAL SKILLS
Students of all ages will improve their confidence and social skills after taking singing lessons and participating in performance coaching. We have turned the quietest little mouse into a confident, upstanding performer! Take a look at some videos and photos of our students performing!
As a singer, your instrument is part of your body. Therefore, not only do you need to learn how to play it, you also need to train it regularly to promote muscle memory and keep it in peak physical condition. Learning voice is no easy task! Your instrument, the larynx, is hidden inside your throat and hardly any of it is visible from the outside. Therefore, our method is based heavily on what you feel and the trained ears of our vocal coaches.
HIGHLY TRAINED VOCAL COACHES
The methodology used by our singing teachers is based on 17th and 18th Century principles of singing. Our signing lessons aim to train voices to sing in a free and natural manner, smoothly, from the bottom of the range to the top with no breaks or sudden changes in quality. This technique gives the singer access to all dynamics, with tonal clarity and flexibility.
Our private singing classes help to improve a singer’s range, endurance, stamina, breath control, resonance, vocal strength and vocal quality across all styles of music without fatigue or damage to the voice. We achieve results by training the singer to find a balance between airflow and intrinsic muscular resistance, all within a resting laryngeal posture.
All new students, from beginners to advanced, will complete a short vocal assessment in their first lesson. Following this, our singing teachers will discuss what they discovered and give the student some recommendations. From this point, all vocal exercises are geared specifically to address the areas needing work in the individual student’s voice.
Our method establishes and strengthens the bottom, top and then middle regions of your voice. Our expert vocal coaches are trained to use a tool box of vowels, consonants, scale patterns and unfinished sounds that will balance out your voice in no time. Once one area has been addressed, we reassess and adjust the exercise prescription accordingly.
Initially, our vocal coaches work towards applying good technique and balance in the voice. We then work on strength, flexibility and voice preservation. Once we have established this, we introduce vocal style. Our training provides our students with a reliable technique that will last a lifetime!
