What A Singing School Has To Offer You

Oct 26, 2007
You may have in mind a large music studio which contains fledgling divas at a grand piano when thinking of a singing school. Singing schools are not only for professional singers. Even though many students are singers, there are a vast amount that enroll simply because they are enthusiastic about music and wish to hone their skills for the sheer pleasure of it.

Many people are of the assumption that singing schools always produce great singers as if it is an assembly of talent. This is simply not always the case. A singing school, as with any school, exists to provide its students with the opportunity to enhance their skills on that particular subject, which is the same in singing and performing.

Each individual student provides a different level of talent. It is not the job of a school to separate average singers from the great ones. The job of a singing school is to actually develop the skills of each individual student, in order them to show the best of the ability and, most of all, their passion for singing.

What kind of musical styles are taught in singing schools?

There was once a time when classical music was taught in a formal setting. The range of music nowadays, ranges across the board, from blues to pop and from country to world music. In current singing schools, almost every music style is covered at some point, giving the student a greater understanding of diverse musical expressions.

What kind of training is received?

When attending a singing school, each individual student is taught fundamental techniques for singing. These techniques are production, resonance, enunciation and projection. The levels of expertise vary from novice to advanced. However, at every level a consistent exercise is required.

Will it make me a singing star and help me to overcome stage fright?

Various singing schools specialize in public performance, which to some degree, will teach the students to overcome stage fright. However, this is not actually the purpose of a singing school. While it can assist you in the beginning of your professional singing career, it will certainly not teach you how to be a star. Being a star is up to the individual as a performer.

What if I want to sing only for myself and not actually be a performer?

Attending a singing school does not necessarily mean that you intend to be an entertainer or a recording artist. As with a painting or sculpting class, it does not necessarily mean that you want to be an artist. The ultimate objective is to allow the student to master the art for their own enjoyment.

A singing school enables its students to use their love for music and singing with the mastery of vocal techniques, which will develop them into the best singers they can ever be. It really is worth considering and well worth the effort.
