Ellie here with a big welcome to all you beginner out there who might be super freaked out about singing in front of people – including a new voice teacher! We have a great beginner program to get you started out right but also set up a nurturing and kind positive environment fo you to grow as a singer. What’s important to me is that you walk out of your first lesson singing better and also feeling better about yourself and your voice. I even have a special beginner program for you that is a mixup of lessons with me and lessons with my awesome positive-reinforcement associate teacher Lothair.
Ellie’s Beginners Lessons
We love beginners. In fact, about 75% of our clients start off as beginners! Some want to work their singing for enjoyment and some want to work their singing to become professional – any and all types of beginners are totally welcome around here, even those who might have a hard time singing on key at first.
The best way to get started as a beginner is to get into this 10 lesson series – our Hybrid 10 is set up just for beginners and it includes 2 lessons with me and 8 lessons with my associate teacher Lothair. You should schedule yur first lesson with me, then Lothair and I will talk about what you need and you can see him for several sessions. I’ll wanna check in with you every 5 or so lessons so me and Lothair can keep a good eye on your progress. This series was developed with beginners in mind and is discounted to let you work with both Lothair and me on a consistent basis.
Although you should make progress every single lesson, sometimes people just want to do a session or two like if they are travelling in from out of town to do study. Of course longer-term study is where you’ll make the most progress, but if you want to book single sessions with me, you totally can!
I also have a package working with just me to bring very beginners from their first lesson to build skills and record in a recording studio for those who are more adventurous! It’s a ton of fun and you get to get a walk through of not only singing techniques but also recording studio techniques. See Recording Studio Services for more details.
What Will I Learn in the First Lesson?
I’m glad you asked! 😀 In the first lesson, we do an analysis of some of the things that might be holding you back and with beginners we teach a special kind of breathing that is used for singing, but we also get you into a song you wanna sing because it’s better to be able to apply the things you learned into a song right away. Plus it’s more fun. 😀
What to Bring To Your 1st Beginner Lesson
Hazel from our studio will contact you after you book. It’d be a good idea to nail the melody and lyrics of a song that you wanna work on before the session. Then you just bring your awesome self and we will have everything you need to get started in the lesson for you. If you wanna bring a recording device so you can record either the lesson or just the instruction part so you can remember it when you are practicing, that is super helpful for a lot of people. The very first beginner session is streamlined just for beginners to get a jump start on singing lessons and are custom designed to be easy to access, fast, and get you into singing a song with all new awesome techniques!
