At the end of the day, you want to improve your singing or give your kids an outlet to develop their singing, piano, guitar, or violin.
That’s where Confident Voice Studio comes in.

You’ve Got Questions. We’ve Got Answers.
Q: Do I need to be a naturally talented musician?
No. It’s a common myth that you have to have a natural talent to sing or play well. You don’t. You’d be amazed how well your music can sound after training and practice.
Q: Do you offer virtual or in-person classes?
Q: Can my child join a class even if they have no experience?
A: Yes! Our kids’ classes are designed to build individual confidence while they work to make music together. At the beginning (preschool), this is just making noise, and grasping the basics. The beginner classes are a lot of fun.
Q: My child already has some experience. Will this be good for them?
A: Yes! All of our teachers are professionally trained performers as well as teachers. If your child has shown a love for music and working towards performing regularly, they’d be right at home.
Q: Are your programs interactive classes or one-on-one?
A: Both! This all comes down to what’s best for the client. Most of our kids’ lessons are interactive classes with the benefits of individual attention and making friends with others. Each child is on their own learning journey and can move as fast or as slow as you want. Making together is a great opportunity to develop other musical skills at a younger age. And one-on-one can be the perfect solution for a pro, recovering from an injury or in prep mode for a big show.
Q: How much time do I need to block off for this?
A: This all comes down to what the client needs. Most of our kids’ classes are roughly 45 minutes a week. And some of our clients are with us 2 hours a week. It really depends on what the end goal is.
Q: Will there be recitals?
A: Yes. We call them Performance Parties. We do them in person, virtually, and at local community events. You can have the opportunity to perform in front of a live audience.
Q: Is there a performance or recital fee?
A: No. All of our performances and recitals are free to our clients.
Q: Is there anything else for me to buy?
A: No. You just show up to your lessons ready to sing. You will need to have access to an instrument at home eventually if your goal is to play piano, guitar, uke or violin. We can recommend a great instrument to get started with.
Q: Will I be put into a contract?
A: No. You can be a customer of ours for 30 minutes or 30 years. We hope it’s the latter 🙂
Would it be a ridiculous idea to see if we are the perfect fit for what you’re looking for?

A common pursuit amongst singers is the the quest for good head and chest voice/tone resonance. Although we have discussed to some extent about head/chest resonance in previous articles, there will still be a lot of confusion on this subject such as balancing tonal brilliance and depth of the resonance.
