What to Expect During Your Child’s Singing Lessons, Staten Island, New York

Singing can often seem like an inherent talent. However, most individuals develop their voice through singing lessons, learning to control their volume, pitch, and tone. Though the thought of voice lessons may seem intimidating, they don’t have to be. Below is what your child should expect during singing lessons and the most important questions your instructor should ask during the first class.

Questions Your Instructor Should Ask

Before asking your child to start singing, the instructor will first get to know them and their vocal history. They’ll ask about past singing experience, lessons they’ve been enrolled in, and how your child plans on using their voice. While lessons will help regardless of the type of music they want to perform, the techniques that will help most may differ.

Once they understand a bit more about your child’s history, the instructor will ask about their goals. Are they looking to sing in a choir, start a band, or simply stand out in school talent shows? By understanding your child’s goals, the instructor will better tailor their lessons.

What to Expect During Singing Lessons

Singing LessonsDuring the first session, the instructor will assess the strength of your child’s voice by asking them to sing a few verses of a song or work through a few vocal exercises. This helps the teacher see what areas they’re struggling with and allows them to develop a plan of action to help young singers improve.

Once the instructor understands your child’s abilities, they’ll provide them with exercises that help strengthen the voice and build singing skills. Then, they’ll assign a piece of music that helps your child put those practices to use so they can start honing their skills. Remember, lessons are designed to challenge each student and help them improve. Though they may not be easy, they will help build confidence and vocal ability.
