Our Approach to Voice Lessons
Here at Tampa music school, we view voice lesson time as a partnership activity. While your instructor likely possesses more musical experience, it is their desire to listen and to nurture your personal musical expression. A qualified voice teacher knows what to listen for and can often spot unhealthy habits that will save you from damage in the long term.
The key goal word within our music school is individuality. Our instructors would never try to force all voice students into the same mold. Lesson time will be devoted to goal setting and goal achievement within an atmosphere of freedom and creativity.
While we strongly encourage freedom of individual performance, we also require a strong knowledge of the building blocks of musical production.
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 Tampa Music School, 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 healthy, lifelong enjoyment of singing.
Tampa Music School’s 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 Tampa Music School, we approach each lesson with a goal of inspiring creativity, instilling confidence, and exploring the dimensions of what your special voice can do.
Did you know that anyone can sing? Everyone has the capacity for vocal technique and communication improvement. The human voice is perhaps the most unique of all the instruments. It allows for the most nuance, emotion and variation.
Tampa Music School employs only the best and most passionate vocal instructors whose sole purpose is to help you grow in your musicality, confidence and overall ability. Our teachers desire to pass on their love for singing to their students through engaging and creative one-on-one collaboration.
There is no preferred musical genre or style taught at Tampa Music School. Whether a student likes pop, Broadway, rock, R&B, spirituals or classical, everyone is encouraged to embrace their musical path. The only tools a student will need are a love for singing and a willingness to put in solid effort.

Our Vocal Teachers
Our voice teachers are the best around when it comes to experience and passionate vocal instruction. They not only have immense skill in pedagogy, but they also have significant professional performance experience. Some have toured the world promoting their own music. Others regularly perform with illustrious music groups. These experiences give our teachers unique insight, which they pass on to their students.

What Is the Right Age to Begin Voice Lessons?
The voice is certainly not a static instrument. As you age, your voice continues to change and develop. You can begin quite young to build the confidence and healthy habits to set you up for continued vocal success.
Elementary school is a great age to begin exploring the world of singing. Young students benefit greatly from a safe but inspiring environment where they can be encouraged to sing freely.
As a student matures, they will be able to understand more and more what is involved in the actual mechanics of singing. At this stage, students may select more challenging repertoire as they continue refining their technique.
If you want to sing, our instructors would love to work with you. Let us meet you where you are and assist you on your musical journey.
What Is Different About Tampa Music School?
When looking for voice lessons, why should you choose Tampa Music School?
Tampa Music School instructors thrive on teacher/student collaboration. We recognize that inspiration comes best from music that a student strongly identifies with. The freedom to make choices and explore during lesson time will inspire and motivate you to work hard to achieve your vocal goals.

At Tampa Music School, we realize that students come to us for many different reasons. Some are at the beginning of their journey, some are just looking to troubleshoot an issue or brush up on audition repertoire, and others are professional musicians that want to continue honing their skills.
