FAQs

Question
Do I have to read music to take this course?
Answer
No. It's a highly recommended skill to have, but many singers don't read music. This course focuses on HOW you sing, and if you don't read that's no problem.
Question
How do I know if I'm a beginner or intermediate singer?
Answer
Make a guess. I will take you from whatever skill level you're at to a whole new world of ability.
Question
Why should i take vocal lessons if I can already sing?
Answer
To go farther! My vocal lessons will make your voice sound, feel, and perform better, and so you'll enjoy singing significantly more. Singing well creates endorphins - the pleasure hormone. The better you do it, the more joy is created for both performer and audience!
Question
Do I need a mic or PA system?
Answer
No. You can substitute a thin bottle, pen or other mic-like object to practice mic technique. If you play an instrument, you should have that for your lessons, so I can show you the best ways to sit/stand and play your instrument so that it helps your voice instead of sabotages it.
Question
How much time should a student enrolling for this course practice everyday?
Answer
This course will require practice time outside of lessons. Time spent practicing may vary from 15 minutes per day to an hour, depending on a student’s level of interest. Students who wish to become professional musicians will need more hours of practice per day using a different set of exercises and materials than students who are seeking to learn music as a hobby. Detailed structure of practice for each student will be discussed and explained during class.
Question
What if a student is unable to attend an upcoming class?
Answer
The student is required to inform the teacher about his absence from a particular session, two days prior to the class. In such a case, the teacher will reschedule the class and conduct the rescheduled class on or before the end (i.e. Saturday) of the ensuing week or such other time as may be mutually decided between the teacher and the student. In case the student misses to give two days prior notice about his absence to the teacher, then the decision to conduct another class for that student is completely based on teacher’s discretion.
Question
What if the teacher wishes to reschedule a class?
Answer
In case the teacher is unavailable for the scheduled class, he/she will inform the students two days prior to the class. The teacher will conduct the rescheduled class on or before the end (i.e. Saturday) of the ensuing week or such other time as may be mutually decided between the teacher and the student.
Question
How long will the teacher take to revert to a query raised after class hours?
Answer
