Hi Vocalists!

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 WOWED 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 I’ve taught for years. I am in the business of vocal transformations 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 – a voice check. 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! 

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…..I am not just a vocal coach. I am an ‘Artiste Groomer’ and this is where the real value of my 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.
