Ditch Your Limitations in Singing and Embrace Your Greatness!

A lot of people are stagnant due to mindset blocks.

“I have gone to many music schools but can't still sing!” “ Only gifted people can do it.”
"I am a guy and can't compete with the ladies in singing. They know it better."
“I was discouraged from singing by my choirmaster so I have lost interest.”
"People say I can't do it, so let me just leave it"
"I might not have the time to learn to sing because of work and family."
"Only stars can succeed with music, I am just an ordinary person."
"My voice cracks when I sing, I can't go high, I sing off key and can't control my breathing when singing."

These are just a few examples of the kind of mindset that sets you back from becoming that megastar singer you have always wanted to become!
In my Vocal Champion Mastermind (VIP) Group on Facebook that mindset is changed. You are transformed into a musical star, you are taught that boundaries don’t exist. Above all, you are pushed to be the best version of YOU.

How to Attract a Record Label and Get a Record Contract in Nigeria.

Hello Singers!

I just wrapped up a lesson with a new singer that was just sent to me from a record label on the Lagos Island. She had initially recorded her single but needed to revamp her voice which has been acting up as a result of underuse and inappropriate dieting habits. (As a singer, you really want to be careful with what goes into your mouth).

This was her first lesson and she was BLOWN AWAY by the ease with which she was finally able to reach those high and tasking notes in her latest single. Not only that, she was literally OUT SINGING her own recording!

Now, this is a typical reaction from new students and even clients we’ve taught for years. We are in the business of vocal transformation so, I was not surprised at how quickly she grew in the first lesson. And I told her….this is ONLY the beginning!

I write to you today to explain WHY it’s just the beginning after only one lesson. Some artistes want to book just one voice training class and hop off to a concert or to the studio. I discourage this a lot because it is not professional. Your voice does not get an adequate workout in just one session. One session is not going to bring you the goods! I usually recommend a package of at least five to ten sessions, where we can easily make a solid plan to help you reach your goals – whether in performance or recording.

For clarity, let me break it down a bit more. When a student takes his/her first vocal lesson, it is strictly diagnostic. Sure, you’re going to sing a little and you’ll work on different scales and exercises, but I am mainly listening to your voice and assessing your skill level. The intention is to make a PLAN to fit your vocal needs so that you can be fast-tracked to reaching your goals!

The intention is to make a PLAN to fit your vocal needs so that you can be fast-tracked to reaching your goals! 
So, if the first lesson is limited to diagnostic research into who you are as a singer, you may be thinking what happens in the second lesson? 
In the second lesson you will receive an incredible daily workout for your voice that you can record onto your phone during the lesson. This is the perfect tool for implementing daily vocal exercises. 

BUT…..Lee Music School is not just a vocal coaching studio. We are an “Artiste Development Studio” which is where the real value of our program comes into play.  This is typically introduced in the third lesson of the package.

If you are an artist or at least, an aspiring one and serious about developing your craft; if you are looking for record label attention, or for a way to set yourself apart from all of the other singers, then you HAVE to be artistically AND stylistically unique in this industry. 

So, if you haven’t moved past the first two lessons, you are missing out on a whole new world of vocal knowledge and development! And the KEY to making you INTERESTING and ALLURING to your audience and perhaps even a record label or a music manager.

Are you ready to take on the journey to your vocal transformation? Are you ready to drop that hit track? Are you ready to become the next big thing in the world’s music scene? Contact us today and we will help you chart your course to mega stardom!

Tips on How to Pick a Singing Instructor in Lagos - Nigeria.

Choosing a voice teacher is one of the most important decisions you’ll make as a beginning singer who resides in Lagos. A voice teacher who is a great fit for your unique personality and goals can take you a long way in your vocal development and musical goals, but an instructor who is not the best fit may hinder your growth unnecessarily. There are many good instructors out there; it’s just a matter of finding the right one for you. Here are a few tips that will help you know what to look for.

Any Personal Connection?
First and foremost, it is critical that you have a good personal connection with your voice teacher, beyond their resume and credentials. Pay attention to how you feel when meeting them for the first time, do you feel comfortable? Do you feel like you can be yourself? Does conversation flow easily? Do you have fun with them? Your voice teacher will be like your therapist in that you will likely share a lot of thoughts and feelings with them, as music performance is an emotional art. Vocal study involves working with an instrument that is inside your body and is mainly controlled through abstract imagery and mind-body connection, therefore a student-teacher relationship requires a high degree of trust and the ability to be vulnerable.

Versatility with musical genres
Unless you are a pre-professional vocalist pursuing a well-thought-out career in a niche music market, it is best to work with a teacher who can help you dabble in many different vocal genres, including pop, rock, classical, broadway, jazz, and others. Most beginning musicians don’t know exactly what type of venues they’ll end up performing in, and even if they do, the career lifespan of a singer is likely to change over the years. Not only will a versatile instructor help you become more marketable as a performer or teacher, they will also help you see the strengths and weaknesses of your instrument as highlighted through the many lenses that varied genres can provide.

Active performance career
A voice teacher who is still actively performing, in addition to teaching, is a plus. Active performers are out in the field learning new skills and encountering new challenges as they perform, and will bring these innovations back to share with students. 

Extensive technical knowledge
Although credentials aren’t everything, they are still an important element in choosing a voice teacher, since you will be paying good money in hopes of tangible results. Ask to see a resume, if they don’t have one already provided on their website. In addition, look for at least 2 years of working experience.

Ask for references
If an instructor checks off all the above items, a final step is to ask for a couple of references. Call their past or current students and ask them what it’s like to work with this instructor, what they like best about the teacher’s approach, and whether or not they are helping the student reach their vocal music goals. It’s important to get the perspective of an outside party when making your final decision.

Trial lesson
Through a combination of the elements above, you’ll be able to get a pretty clear picture of what an instructor is like and how they will contribute to your vocal education. Diving in and experiencing a few lessons will be the best way to get to know an instructor’s value. Remember, if you start working with someone and change your mind, you can always try a different instructor later; in fact, for very serious students it can be beneficial to study with two different teachers who offer a variety of skills simultaneously.

How Learning to Play a Musical Instrument Can Benefit You and Your Family

Hello Friends, I am Laura Etemah, the Director of Lee Ellie Music School; and an advocate of music education. I am also dedicated to evangelizing the benefits of music to my Naija people.

Music makes you smart. And if you are already smart it makes you smarter. Ever wondered why things are so organized abroad? In USA and many other developed countries, Music is compulsory for all junior grade pupils. Why? Because they want the children to imbibe good morals so they could grow up with it and be good citizens.

Music teaches discipline, teamwork, focus, patience, tolerance, builds self-esteem, develops the brain, speech and vocabulary in children and aids in listening. With music in your life, you become more grounded and joyous.

The power of music has long been discovered by the Oyinbos that's why you must find a musical instrument in almost every whiteman' s house.

What more can I say but to encourage my very own Naija people to follow suit. Get involved with music, get your children involved and remember to share your testimonies when you begin to enjoy the benefits of music?

Are you ready to pick up a musical instrument? Do you want to work with an experienced, skilled, understanding and loving teacher? Find out how to here:

You can also contact us here: +2348132918691.

I personally invite you to LIKE, COMMENT & SHARE this post to get more people to join the music train so that we all can win together! Yes we can!

Yours musically,
