IMMusic works with children to build up their voice and confidence. When learning about voice and singing, it is vital to also understand the basics of music theory, which is why we also explore this during lessons. The main goal is to stretch their vocal range and start to find their natural voice. While doing this, it is important to understand that for many children, this will be a time of rapid changes in their voice and that we need to work with those changes to continue their progress.
We encourage children to come into their lessons with a goal in mind. Whether that be sight reading, expanding their range, or strengthening their head voice.
Students should take advantage of both private and group lessons. Our goals for group lessons include harmonizing and sight singing together.
A huge focus for teen vocal lessons is building confidence in their voice. Students will perform songs from different genres. With our new vocalists, we often start with songs that are familiar to them and expand on that. We learn vocal techniques and music theory. It is necessary to know about the making of music and how it works in order to perform it to the best of your ability.
Singers usually perform a technique song and a song of their choice for the recitals. This encourages vocal growth as well as creativity. But I am more than open to working on individual vocal goals with students.
We offer both private and group lessons. For our teens, we have one group class. We have a smaller age range, so the more experienced singers can boost the confidence of newer singers. Some of the things we have done in the past include harmonizing, group sight reading, learning new vocal warm ups, and even performing a group song in a past recital. I am aware that singing in a group of your peers can be intimidating, but we have a very positive and uplifting group!
