Private Instruction is important. Let me share some ideas why:
1. Personalized Training
Every singer is different and we all come to singing from a variety of backgrounds and vocal habits. A trained teacher can identify a student's habits and help them progress in a healthy and positve way. Every student learns in their own way, at their own pace. Private music lessons provide instruction that meet the specific learning styles of each student.
2. Guaranteed Success
With a private voice instructor, especially from an early age, a child can learn the basics of singing and pitch matching much more quickly and effectively. With a solid foundation in place, the student can keep learning, playing and succeeding for life - and that's just plain fun! Singing can branch out into social groups and provide a source of lifelong enjoyment, community connection, and well-being.
3. Instant Feedback
When a student isn't doing something correctly, a private teacher can correct the mistake or habit instantly and offer praise and encouragement when the student is successful. What better way to building confidence than to be reassured that you're doing something right!
4. Less frustration and more motivation
If a student is having trouble or feeling frustrated with their musical development, a private teacher can help them progress more quickly and help them stay focused on their musical goals. Instructors help students find new music, try new vocal techniques and explore topics and ideas they may never have encountered on their own. It's exciting to discover new songs, learn new poetry and explore different cutlures through their music.
Private lessons are for everyone and an important part of your musical development. Find a private music teacher today! Sing for health and sing for life!
