Educational Value

The Voice Studio offers out customized options of singing lessons to all voice students. Students have the liberty to set up their own lessons based upon their needs and life situation. Voice lessons may be received by the student on a weekly or bimonthly schedule. Voice lessons are administered on an individual basis, where the student has their own private lesson time block accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Singing students are encouraged to study voice individually to gain a better understanding of their own vocal instrument. If students prefer to receive their singing lesson along side a sibling and or other family member they are more than welcome to do so based upon their needs and comfort levels. Voice lessons are extended out in the form of the following blocks of time and per dollar amount. An individual student's thirty minute lesson is received for fifteen dollars, while a shared student's thirty minute lesson, with family member of choice, is received for thirteen dollars. An individual student's forty five minute lesson is received for twenty two dollars, while a shared student's forty five minute lesson, with family member of choice, is received for twenty dollars. An individual student's sixty minute lesson is received for thirty dollars, while a shared student's sixty minute lesson, with family member of choice, is received for twenty eight dollars. Taking voice lessons is a great opportunity and personal responsibility. Much goes into the training and discovery of one's instrument. During a regular scheduled voice lesson many different aspects are discussed and applied. Aspects will at any given point include; singing stretches, posture and stance, diaphragmic breathing, bel canto techniques, vocal warm ups, performance etiquette and stage presence, tone and singing intonation, music theory, and a vast selection of vocal repertoire chosen by the student. As each voice lesson is specified to each specific singer, different lessons may look different in terms of; beginner level singers may just barely touch on necessary concepts while older more advanced students will be capable of understanding and applying much more advanced singing techniques. Even within the same age groups, individuals will have different goals and focuses due to their singing style, desires and interest of study. All singers are encouraged to choose their own solo song selections out of The Voice Studio's Repertoire Collection. Once a singer has thoroughly studied their solo, the singer is encouraged but not required to perform in front of a live audience. Some singers choose to put on small concerts for their family members or church communities while other singers choose to perform live in front of a vocal recital hosted by The Voice Studio. Some students are faithful singers and pupils, but never performers by their choice. All singers have the freedom to choose how they exercise their vocal education in their own choices and experiences. The Voice Studio's main purpose is to put the student at the center of all studies and performances, making the student shine and grow.
