Just like everything else, choosing the right voice teacher can make or break your singing career or ambition. Therefore, it is very important to hire a good voice/singing teacher.
A good and professional voice teacher will teach and train you to use the right singing skills to create the sound you want in a healthy way. While a university professor teaches you what you have learned and how to explain it, a voice teacher teaches you how to use what you have learned and how to improve it.
Therefore, the ability to interact comfortably with the voice teacher is very important. For this purpose, it is necessary that a student and teacher have a good chemistry between them. Therefore, it is not unreasonable for students to ask for “consultation” when you choose your voice teacher. This is done so that your voice teacher and you may become acquainted with each and come to an understanding on the development of an agreeable teacher student relationship.
You want to build a potential rapport with your voice teacher. Ask yourself if you will be comfortable with this person because you will build relationships with this person and train together weekly or more. You want to enjoy the phase of learning singing without taking your singing lessons feel like chores. That’s why you should never sign up with a voice teacher just by talking on the phone.
Always schedule a meeting because you will need to explore the background of the voice teacher, although before the meeting you may have studied the background of many teachers over the phone or through a biography that a professional voice teacher should have. If possible, you can ask for the recommendations or reviews from his/her prior clients. These testimonies will indicate the popularity and credibility of your voice teacher.
When you find that your potential voice teacher has an adequate and suitable professional singing background, you can ask questions about issues you find important, such as lessons and opportunities for singing lessons. You may also like to sing a specific type of song, and if so, determine if your voice teacher can guide you on the way that you like, whether it’s a popular song, a classical song, or even a jazz song.
Unless you are absolutely sure that this will be your perfect match, don’t commit yourself to anything immediately. Please take the time to see other potential voice teachers in the list. Remember, choosing a good voice teacher will definitely make a good start to your singing career, so choose wisely.
