It’s absolutely vital that you enjoy singing, music and the process of learning. It gives you the urge to keep going and the motivation to practice as hard as you possibly can between each lesson.
It’s important for you to have a smashing time during your lessons too. If you have a singing teacher that leaves you feeling deflated after every lesson, you won’t feel particularly encouraged to push on and learn.
How Do I Know This?
I’m a performer myself and have had a number of singing lessons from a huge range of singing teachers. I’ve had good ones, terrible ones and great ones that transformed my voice. The amazing singing teachers are rare, but I know what it is like to train with them. That’s why my standards are so high as a singing teacher.
Learning a new skill (or even getting better at an existing one) is all about setting yourself goals and doing practice right? Right!
Thing is though, practice is hard. There is nothing like coming to your singing teacher and getting a knock to your confidence if the lesson hasn’t gone so great.
Learning to sing is all about building yourself up with lots of little milestones. After each lesson, you’ll get a confidence boost which will encourage you to get even better and hit your next milestone.
