I keep my voice lessons very relaxed. I want the student to feel comfortable and to be working on songs they are interested in. This does not mean, however, that I do not hold high expectations for my students. I hold the students responsible for their own progress. If they don’t practice, they do not improve.
I make sure they and their parents (if applicable) know exactly what they should be working on each week, as well as areas that need improvement. Students age 10 and up will learn proper breathing techniques, posture, and projection/articulation. They will also learn how to care for their vocal cords through proper diet and warm ups.
