What to Expect in a Singing Lesson.

Here's a breakdown of what you can expect at a singing lesson, whether it's your first one or you've been singing for a while:


  • Your lesson will likely begin with a warm-up routine. This helps prepare your voice for singing by improving blood flow, loosening your vocal cords, and increasing your vocal range. You might do lip trills, humming exercises, or gentle scales.

Vocal Technique:

  • Your teacher will assess your vocal technique and identify areas for improvement. This can include aspects like breath support, posture, resonance (where the sound is placed in your body), and vocal placement (where the sound seems to be coming from in your head). They'll provide exercises to help you develop these techniques.

Repertoire Work:

  • You'll likely work on a song you've chosen or one your teacher suggests. They'll help you understand the melody, rhythm, and phrasing of the song. You might focus on diction (clear pronunciation of words), dynamics (volume changes), and musicality (interpreting the emotion of the song).

Feedback and Goal Setting:

  • Your teacher will provide constructive feedback on your singing, highlighting areas you did well in and suggesting improvements. They'll also help you set realistic goals for future lessons.

Additional Points:

  • Lesson Duration: Singing lessons typically last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 1 hour, depending on your agreement with the teacher and your experience level.

  • What to Bring: It's helpful to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated and a notebook to jot down important points from your lesson. If you have sheet music for the song you're working on, bring that along too.

  • Comfort Level: The most important thing is to feel comfortable with your teacher. Don't be afraid to ask questions and let them know if anything feels strange or uncomfortable.

First Lesson:

  • For your first lesson, be prepared to discuss your musical background and singing goals. The teacher might ask you to sing a simple song or do some vocal exercises to assess your current ability.

Remember, singing lessons are a journey of continuous learning and improvement. Be patient with yourself, celebrate your progress, and most importantly, have fun!
