Are you already having singing lessons for quite a while, but still don’t feel confident in your abilities?

There are two reasons why that is.
1. You are not practicing effectively — or, maybe, not practicing enough, if at all.
2. Your singing teacher is not very good, and failed to give you exercises that are going to help you reach your goals.

Let’s break this down, shall we?

Your singing teacher should be giving you singing exercises to practice – customised to your vocal needs and range. All of our students at VSA are expected to come back next week with different parts of the song or the scales improved. Your teacher should be working on the parts of your voice that you want to improve, and/or the teacher thinks needs improvement. You should be singing along with scales, and it for at least 10-25 minutes, at least 5 days a week — this is what we advise at VSA.

After doing your scales, you should be trying to implement the skills that you have learned directly into the song — so it is imperative that you sing an actual song after you do your scales. You should be looking at yourself in the mirror when you are singing and doing your scales at home. And if you are doing that for at least 5 days a week, you should be feeling stronger, more confident, higher or lower notes should be sounding better.

If you got a great teacher, he or she should be guiding you, advising you about what to do, how long to do it for, and should be picking you up on any parts of your voice that might need improving. Documenting these on your lyrics, so that you clearly know what you have to do during your home practice – that is what all our singing teachers do.

If you have lessons for months, and you don’t feel that your vocal ability has improved, I would be asking your singing teacher — “why haven’t I improved after a couple of months, I’ve followed all your instructions,” — and if they don’t improve your voice for the next 3 or 4 weeks, I’d be definitely looking to find another vocal coach or an online singing course.

Hope that this has helped you out!
