FAQ: What Does A First Lesson Look Like?

May 17, 2022

Our first singing lesson together is all about figuring out goals, determining level of expertise and learning the fundamentals of singing.

The first lesson is where I determine a student’s rhythm, coordination and level of expertise, whether it be beginner, intermediate or advanced. We start out with a few questions to get to know a student’s history with singing, what their singing goals are, for example…to build confidence, to have fun or for the more serious singer to develop all aspects of what it takes to be a recording artist / theatre performer.

I also go over the fundamentals of singing. Diaphragmatic breathing, some exercises to support your breath, the main breathing muscle groups and how breath is the foundation of your entire voice. 

We will also go over some easy warm up scales and body warm up exercises, explain the reasons why we warm up our bodies and voices and go through the 3 core elements of Singit: Breath, Body & Voice. 

Then we move onto learning a simple pop song, focusing on where and when to breathe in a song and setting up the practice process that a student would then do at home in their own time. (Just a little homework 😜) As I always say, you get what you put in! 🙂 

Lastly, we move onto our warm down, which is how we end off each lesson.

Remember: Singit is a safe place for you to explore yourself, push your own boundaries and step outside of your comfort zone, that is where the #magic happens, the true growth of an individual, an artist, a person, YOU! Through music we discover ourselves and that is the greatest gift of all.
