Our Approach to Singing Lessons at Music Education Center
All Music Education Center voice teachers are classically trained and have an in-depth understanding of how the vocal cords work. Our students are taught proper warm-up and breathing techniques to help maximize range, vocal stability, and much more.
Every voice lesson is not created equal. Each lesson is tailored to the specific student’s interests and ability level. Whether you or your child want to learn how to successfully sing a song from your favorite soundtrack or something popular on the radio, we’ll help get you there!
We also help with auditions for musical theater, competitions, school plays, and more. Try a risk-free voice lesson and see the difference having a professionally trained voice teacher in your corner makes.
Voice Lessons Should Be Fun!
Finding your own voice is one of life’s great pleasures – and learning how to use it makes that feeling even sweeter! At Music Education Center, we want every student to LOVE their music lessons and find fulfillment in learning how to sing.
Our voice teachers create a positive and supportive learning environment where you can succeed, no matter your starting point or level of experience. Whether you are singing in a choir, a musical theatre ensemble, as a soloist, or just in the car, our experienced teachers can help you build confidence and have fun, while working on music you enjoy.
We Emphasize Healthy Technique
Singing may look simple enough, but the voice is a complex series of systems that form an expressive and delicate living instrument inside of each of us. Perhaps more than any other musical discipline, having an experienced voice teacher to assist you in training these processes to work together is key to a healthy, lifelong enjoyment of singing.
Music Education Center highly-trained instructors will assist you in learning strong fundamentals including proper breathing, diction, resonance, stage presence, and non-verbal expression. We strive to ensure that our voice students become literate musicians, so lessons will also include discussions of music theory, history, and rhythm. Mastering these technical basics will broaden your horizons and allow you to explore many different styles and genres of music in the future!
We Care About Your Musical Interests & Goals
We teach all styles of singing, including musical theatre, classical, contemporary/pop, jazz, country, and folk. Your voice is unique – and therefore, your instruction should be, too. Whether you are a beginner, have some experience, or are an accomplished performer with a desire to further develop your skills, our teachers will provide customized guidance designed to advance your individual goals. Learn from our experienced staff of professional singers and graduates from several prestigious musical programs. At Music Education Center, we approach each lesson with a goal of inspiring creativity, instilling confidence, and exploring the dimensions of what your special voice can do.
